I have to admit. I have a small crush on Manfreds. In my opinion, it’s the best restaurant in Copenhagen. Manfreds has been the place where I’ve celebrated my two last birthdays, and it has been pretty perfect both times. The Film Critic guy, me, candles at the table, delicious food and the most amazing atmosphere.

Manfreds “real name” is actually Manfreds & Vin, since it’s both a restaurant (Manfreds) and a wine bar (& Vin). Manfreds & Vin has several different options at their menu, but I have to admit that I constantly return to the same two options. I either buy their different take away (it costs 90 DKK, and since I’m quite a small person, it’s always enough for two dinners for me) which are Copenhagen’s best, or their “Nordic tapas menu”. The Nordic tapas menu is definitely not called that, but I think it’s the name that explains it the best.

The Nordic tapas menu consists of four small dishes. If you are two people, they bring you different dishes. It can be anything. Sometimes I ask the waiter what’s on the tapas menu for the night, and I always get the same answer. “I don’t know, the chief makes it up throughout the evening.” I love it. The attitude, the surprise, the delicious food. It’s like tapas, with all kinds of Nordic tastes.

If you think that Manfreds have paid me to write that they are the best in town, you’re wrong. They haven’t paid me, and I use way too much money there. When that’s said: Go visit them. Because they are truly the best.
