Our night out at this restaurant was a positive experience with only minor flaws. We were welcomed by a friendly staff member, and our overcoats placed in the wardrobe. As we were a bit early and one of the company had not arrived, we had a beer at the bar. Later, we were seated comfortably at one of the round... More

Delightful dinner at Geist with my other half. I still dream of the curried avocado/ almonds dish. I mean those almonds were the freshest thing. Delicious. Lovely wine too. We sat by the bar which I would thoroughly recommend as you can see the chefs preparing everything. The only downside is at the very end of the night I locked... More

Me and my wife visited this restaurant for the first time after having heard about it for so long. An amazing experience, you sit around the kitchen observing chefs and crew preparing masterpieces. We had a four courses menu which is very ok and I would recommend not to miss the mallard duck and the wasabi dessert! What makes the... More

It took us about 20 minutes to get seated, because the hostess seemed to have misplaced someones coat. It was difficult not to get annoyed,but once we were seated, our server was very good and everything came out timely. The food was really good! We had a mushroom soup, that was served without a spoon...on purpose! The chef recommended you... More

Copenhagen is full of innovative restaurants. Geist is good but not great. Very expensive. Food was good but did not excite. Best part of the evening was the cotton candy that came with our tea and coffee. Waitress was either harried and overbooked or not super attentive---couldn't quite decided what was the case. Noise levels high, and our table for... More

Great food and nice atmosphere. Beef particularly tasty but not for those who dont like it served blue. Puddings were fabulous, particularly the wasabi and salted caramel toffee. They also give you candy floss with your coffee - what's not to love!

Great decor, great vibe.. the coolest restaurant I've seen in Copenhagen, dark, dingy, modern, with loud music... great cocktails, helpful staff... food was slightly hit and miss, my chicken, turbot, beef, lobster were great courses.. wasabi in the dessert was slightly too much for me, slightly less would've been better... tartare was far too garlicky, and duck with cherries was...

I had mixt menu of six dishes and all of them where fantastic. My wife had three plates, two where great but she did not like the main course that where beef steak. But look out for the price of the wine! Expresso with candy floss in the end is fun.

It comes at a price though. We paid approx £100 each for 3 (very small) dishes, one cocktail and one glass of wine! It was great though. We sat at the chef's table which I highly recommend as you get to see the chef's doing their thing. Also, make sure you order a coffee at the end as ours came... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
