Had a most enjoyable family lunch. Herring and home-flavoured aquavit was excellent. roast pork went down a treat, as did the fish cakes and salmon. Highly recommended.

Suitable for any occasion. The atmosphere is dense with Danish ambience at its best, and the staff offers excellent service. We were 3 people eating, resp. rib-eye, duck, and fish and could agree that all meals were first class. The menu is rather small, but...More

Went there on a hunch and was lucky to be seated at the bar. Bartender/waiter was really good and took his time to tell us about the snaps. Food was delicate and very tasty. The place is very recommendable

The food was beautifully presented and tasted good with a rich flavour, the monkfish was served in a white flavoursome sauce, but no potatoes or vegetables. I particularly did not appreciate my desert, a deconstructed rice dish, which had a few grains of long grain...More

A fantastic night out. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and service is impeccable... We had 3 courses and enjoyed every bite!! Lovely wine selection and professional waiters... Still, the atmosphere is relaxed and cosy. A place to visit and revisit when in Copenhagen.

‘Maven – Restaurant & Wine bar’ is a down-to-earth eatery in the Nikolaj Exhibition Building; an old church right in Copenhagen’s solar plexus. We offer quality wines and good beer at honest prices and classic dishes with an elegant twist, freshly made from the best ingredients. The place has borrowed the old nickname for the Nikolaj Square; in the 19th Century this was the home of the city’s butcher shops and thus referred to by the locals as ‘Maven’, literally meaning ‘the Stomach’. We have removed the bloody traces and aired the location, but the informal charm is still here. We treat the stomach without overdoing the gastronomical ambitions.
