Six fantastic Copenhagen restaurants with a view

There’s something to be said for seeing things from above. A familiar city can look very different and the conversation flows more freely with a bird’s eye view. At these six restaurants, you can enjoy both fine dining and impressive views – without breaking the bank.

Restaurant Silo

Nordhavns Silo offers a glittering array of delicious food dishes together with untamed views. Lunch costs around Dkr300 while the four-course evening menu will set you back some Dkr550. The French-Nordic cuisine is in the excellent hands of Denny Vangsted, formerly of Kong Hans, Gorilla and Nimb, and Morten Falk, ex Head Chef at Kadeau. The views from the enormous panoramic windows on the 17th floor of the silo are spectacular and the building, transformed from a superannuated and shabby industrial silo into a statement of funky futurist architecture, is worth a visit in its own right. If the weather's kind, you must have a drink in the rooftop bar.

Sticks'n'Sushi, Tivolihotellet

With its combination of sushi and yakitori sticks taken from Japanese street food, Sticks ‘n’ Sushi has been a roaring success. Since its launch in 1994, the Danish family-owned business has gone from strength to strength and today has 20 different restaurants in Copenhagen, London and Berlin. Each restaurant has its own unique look, but if you’re judging by the view, then the one at the Tivoli Hotel is a winner. Here on the 12th floor, you can sip cocktails, indulge in beautifully presented Japanese delicacies and stand with a view of the capital way beneath your feet.

MASH Penthouse, Tivolihotellet

MASH Penthouse is the Tivoli Hotel’s other restaurant and at MASH they take their steak seriously. In fact, it’s one of the few places outside Japan where you can taste some of that exclusive and fabled Kobe beef. There are also plenty of fabulous cuts of meat from Uruguay, America and Denmark, as well as fine wines and excellent cocktails to complement a view from the 12th floor here at the Tivoli Hotel that you’ll struggle to beat.

Tårnet, Christiansborg

Until a few years ago, there was a storage room in the tower of the Danish Parliament. But in 2014 someone got the good idea to start a restaurant instead. Now Meyers has taken over the tower and offers smørrebrød and classic Danish home cooking. The view of the old Copenhagen from 34 meters is beautiful and the friezes and sculptures in the tower were found when the storage room was cleaned.

Trio i Axel Towers

There are exquisite views and a cool urban atmosphere in the new Trio restaurant on the 10th floor of Axel Towers, which is run by the same people who are behind the 2-star Michelin restaurant AOC and little brother bistro, no. 2. Trio is a gourmet experience somewhere between AOC and no. 2 and a six-course menu can be had for around DKr600. There’s a cocktail bar on the floor below, where as well as drinks and snacks you can also order from the restaurant’s menu and so enjoy the best of both worlds – including a panoramic view of downtown Copenhagen.
