“Why dine at a basement restaurant in the middle of the summer?” you might ask. Well, actually there are plenty of good reasons and we could start by mentioning the temperamental Danish summer weather, which oftentimes features rain and wind. But it doesn’t even matter if the sun is shining or it’s pouring down, because the mission at Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe in Store Kongensgade never changes: We want to serve up great food at more than fair prices. Actually, you can mix and match your own three course dinner from as little as DKK 200.

The summer menu of 2017 at the very first restaurant of our now booming family is known for elegant and refreshing dishes inspired by Danish traditions, cozy “hygge” elements and global inputs alike. If you wanna eat like a Dane then you’ll almost have to try the creamy veal fricassee with a creamy white sauce and tons of veggies. Or how about the dessert featuring sweet, Danish strawberries with cream, where the latter has been turned into ice cream.

Take a tour of the beautiful yet unpretentious dishes from Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe in pictures a bit further down on this page. You can check out the full menu here and book a table for your summer dinner in the heart of historic Copenhagen online. We promise that neither you nor your wallet will regret it.
