NY Times

"..perhaps Copenhagen’s hottest new restaurant, Fiskebaren, has drawn raves both for its chic interiors and loyally Danish seafood creations."

The Wall Street Journal

Top 10 Fish Restaurants in Europe

"A former protégé of Noma's René Redzepi, Anders Selmer has created his new fish restaurant in the edgy former meatpacking district. Raw dishes include razor clams and fennel, plus trout tartare, while cooked dishes include poached cockles with celeriac and poached ling with leek, celery puree and dill, all at modest prices."

USA Today

"Kodbyens Fiskebar in the trendy meatpacking district serves super-fresh seafood in urban minimalist surrondings."


"Kødbyens Fiskebar (which translates to Meat Market Fish Bar) was one of the pioneers in the district, set up by former Noma sommelier Anders Selmer in 2010. Located within an austere former meatpacking store, the restaurant has a rough-hewn chic interior and a dramatic cylinder-shaped aquarium in the centre that doubles as a raw bar, with stools around its diameter."


"Ordinarily hum-drum dishes are given a "New Nordic Cuisine"-style twist. The fish and chips, for example, are made from fresh and zealously sourced haddock that is lightly smoked before frying, then cheekily served in the traditional newspaper cone."

Lucky Peach

"... the food was beyond excellent. If Kødbyens Fiskebar were in New York, I would spend my way into penury eating there every meal."

Condé Nast Traveler

"... this sprawling salute to Scandinavian seafood, located in the city's revitalized meatpacking district, maps the entire Nordic daily catch..."

The Independent

"The meatpacking district of Vesterbro is currently the coolest part of Copenhagen. Here the smart set head for Kodbyens Fiskebar, with its mesmerising centrepiece of a cylindrical jellyfish tank."

"The best piece of fried fish I've had in 20 years"

"If there were a single Danish restaurant I could airlift to the end of my street, it would be Kodbyens Fiskebar."

Jean-Luc Naret, the Director General of the Michelin guides

"A Bib Gourmand is a very good value for money. We recommend that restaurant. We call them Inspector’s Favorite. They’re actually the restaurant where inspectors will go on the weekend with their own pocket-money if they have to."

LA Times

"A hip, bustling seafood-focused restaurant in the trendy meatpacking district, featuring a selection of Nordic fish."


Top restaurants from three food cities to watch: Los Angeles, Copenhagen and Lima.

Copenhagen: Kødbyens Fiskebar

"The trendy White Meat (meatpacking) district now houses Kødbyens Fiskebar. Chef Martin Bentzen's specialty is local seafood like brown butter–baked North Sea hake with Danish potatoes."

Travel + Leisure

"this industrial-chic space trades in seafood with an artful Scandinavian twist."


"With a young and talented team of chefs, Copenhagen’s ultra-cool Kødbyens Fiskebar brings the spirit og Noma’s light, fresh and flavoursome Nordic cuisine to a more casual setting."

Marie Claire

"Kødbyens Fiskebar is an industrial space devoted to serving the city's best seafood. Its pared-back look with peeling paintwork has been a hit with diners, and the plain black tables, jazzy sounds and T-shirt-clad waiters only add to the informal feel. Here, it's the food that really matters."

Bon Appetit

"Kødbyens Fiskebar, an outstading new restaurant in meatpacking district."

Copenhagen Post

"Kødbyens Fiskebar is a pearl within the oyster of Copenhagen.”


"Fiskebar - med stans bästa krogstämning

Här den krogstämning som du hittar i New York. Fiskebar, som lustigt nog ligger i danska Meatpacking District - Ködbyen, är stans mest populära ställe. På menyn står fisk och skaldjur som serveras mot bakgrund av ställets akvarium med exotiska fiskar. Uteserveringen är fylld av solstolar och här brukar festen pågå tills stängning.”

Der Feinschmecker

"Die 60 Plätze rund um die große Cocktailbar sind jeden Abend voll. Ein Riesenspaß!"

"Les Danois manifestent un certain goût pour l’humour absurde, c’est pourquoi vous trouverez cet excellent restaurant de poisson en plein coeur du meatpacking district, les halles centrales dédiées à la viande!"

HRImag – Hôtels Restaurants & Institutions

"Un 5 à 7 au bar à poissons le Fiskebar. Un verre et, entre autres, de succulents couteaux de mer avant d’aller souper. Immense comptoir en acier inoxydable, ambiance ultra-conviviale."

Rakuten Magazine


フィッシュレストラン 今勢いのあるデンマークの建築家ユニット が内装を手がけたことで話題に。バーカウンターもフックも、よく見るとすべて廃材でできています。ノーマのマネージャーが経営しているので、味は折り紙付き。テーブル席は要予約。カウンターは、気軽に一杯楽しめます。

"København har længe manglet fiskerestauranter, her på det seneste er der komme et par stykker mere, men Fiskebaren skiller sig klart ud fra gruppen."

Politiken, IBYEN

"Her serveres lettilgængelige fiskeretter i en hip, uhøjtidelig stemning, i omgivelser som udnytter Kødbyens rå, industrielle lokaler perfekt."

"Maden er lækker, stemningen er elegant og alligevel afslappet, og priserne er til at have med at gøre."
