Fiskebar, Copenhagen, 5/31/14

This place is in the meat packing district, so a different vibe from the others we tried. Very casual and definitely frequented by more locals than tourists. A large bar appeared to accommodate singles, as well as couples, who wanted just to drink or eat with their food. A good selection of oysters as well as lightly smoked seafood was offered for starters and then a variety of seafood for mains. They offer one meat and one vegetarian entree but their dessert selection left me uninterested.

Service was fast and helpful. The local King crab was sweet and tasty. I was most surprised by the smoked cod in the fish and chips – it was delicious. The hake was mild and well prepared and the beef cuts were all very differently but well prepared – the fillet a nice rare, the cheek well glazed and braised, and the tongue made into a patty which solved the tough/chewy problem. We had a very early dinner time but the place was still buzzing with people and a constant stream of arrivals. They had a number of lounge chairs and tables set up outside for waiting guests.This is a place whose crowd is the atmosphere.
