Restaurant Kanalen

At Restaurant Kanalen in the charming and idyllic Christianshavn, you can enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner. For lunch, you can enjoy traditional Danish gastronomy, and in the evening, the kitchen focuses on French cuisine.


Perfect location

The restaurant is situated just by the channels with a beautiful view of the passing boats and gorgeous old buildings. The restaurant is simple with Scandinavian architecture and big windows towards the water. During the summer, the sunlight beams through the big windows and during the winter, it shines a soft, bright light. With the candles and the crackling fireplace, it becomes the definition of ‘hygge.’


Scandinavian style

The atmosphere is bright and Nordic. Lots of light and white-clothed tables. In 2014 the place was renovated after water damage in 2014. However, they kept as much of the history and architecture as possible, while still adding a younger vibe to the place.


Michelin recommended

The gorgeous restaurant is featured in the Michelin Guide 2020. They wrote this of the restaurant:

“Find a spot on the delightful canalside terrace of this quaint, shack-like building – formerly the Harbour Police office – and watch the boats bobbing up and down as you eat. Modern-looking dishes follow the seasons; some honour Danish traditions, while others bring Mediterranean ingredients into play.”


Great food all day long

The dishes are prepared meticulously and professionally and are always made from the seasons’ best ingredients. Inspiration stems from the European kitchen but mainly on Danish and French cuisine. On their lunch menu, you’ll find herring in a marinade recipe that has survived several generations.

They have tenderloin from Grambogård pig with new corns and burnt red pepper. In the evening you can enjoy black hummer, rib-eye and other delicious dishes. For both lunch and dinner, you can order from the a la carte menu or try a menu made by the chefs.
