Royal Copenhagen Christmas Tables

Eat your way through a Danish Christmas

Christmas lunch at Slotskælderen hos Gitte Kik

Christmas lunch in Denmark is traditionally enjoyed at home with the family on the 25th or 26th December. It consists of an enormous gastronomic cold table orgy, which starts in the afternoon and often continues until late at night. At the very least lunch can be expected to last seven hours.

Restaurants by Madklubben

Excellent food at reasonable prices. That is the dream behind Madklubben, which runs 9 otherwise very different restaurants in and around Copenhagen. The concept is quite simple. You choose one, two, three or four courses from the menu and pay a fixed price, which we promise will not blow your budget. You can always choose to supplement the menu with something extra, and wine menus are available too.

Restaurants by Cofoco

The concept is simple. Cofoco is an acronym for Copenhagen Food Consulting, and as these three words indicate, the goal from day one has been to point the guests in the right direction and help them find their way to a good meal. In addition, Cofoco wants their customers to feel like they are getting twice as much for half the price.

Where to eat on a Sunday

Some restaurants in Copenhagen take a well-deserved day off on Sundays. Therefore, it is a good idea to check if the restaurant of your choice is open Sunday night, before you head down there with an empty stomach. To save you the time, we have hand-picked some of our favourite restaurants in Copenhagen, where the food is good, and the price level is reasonable, and best of all, the door is always open, even on Sundays.
