Is it already July? Halfway into the year, we have picked 7 eatery newcomers in Copenhagen. We have deliberately kept the list short and light, so you can eat your way around all of them.
Eattoday Tapasbar & Takeaway Waterfront
The restaurant is located right next to The Lakes, and probably offers the best tapas in Europe outside of Spain. In this small, cozy restaurant you can buy a mix of everything and a beer – or two, and every dish costs the same when you mix different tapas.
Address: Strandvejen 112, Hellerup 2900. Tel.: +45 39 40 28 00
Gro Spiseri på ØsterGRO
On top of a former car auction house, you’ll find Denmark’s first rooftop farm, ØsterGRO. Now you can even have an organic meal at its eatery and experience the farm’s special atmosphere.
In the kitchen, four guys work closely together to shape the menu and select natural wines to accompany the food. Here, there’s no head chef and no hierarchy. GRO spiseri is not like many other restaurants, and in the few square meters they have you can immediately feel the passion from the people working there.
Enjoy beautifully flower-decorated dishes in the evening.
(meaning Tavern of Gold) is located just north of The Lakes in a melting pot of small, quirky clothing stores and dozens of pizzerias and eateries of all types. At Guldkroen you can enjoy classic Danish food with lots of sauce and potatoes in a homely atmosphere.
Enjoy their shrimp cocktail, Ad Libitum Tartelettes, Wienerschnitzel or English beef. Don’t miss their homemade Rainbow ice cream.

Gastronomically speaking, Jordnær is not very close to the earthy sphere. The ambitions are high, and the reviews since the restaurant opened in May this year have been positive indeed.
The host couple consists of Tina Kragh and Eric Vildgaard, who can plot in three years at Noma, the gastronomic flagship of New Nordic Cuisine, on his resume. Both of them have a past at Fredensborg Store Kro.
The evening menu gives you the opportunity to go a la carte or choose between a 3-, 5- or 7-course menu, where you will visit almost all the pleasantries of the menu. Restaurant Jordnær is open for lunch guests.
Table reservation is recommended.
