Directions to Restaurant Els
The building in which the restaurant “The Els” is situated, dates back to 1853 and once used to be a coffeehouse constructed by the well known Austrian patissier Christian Frederik Bredo Grandjean. One of its regulars and a friend of Grandjean himself, was the famous Hans Christian Andersen, who even wrote a poem about it on the opening night. The story tells that its was “The Els” who kept the poor writer with food and that the poem was written as a thank you to the restaurant.
The interior is impressive and much of the old Art Noveau style has been kept and still remains today. Beautiful murals with red frames, portraying females symbolizing the seasons and the muses of dance and music, cover the walls and create a very warm and romantic ambience, together with the dark wooden furniture, candles and white tablecloths. This is a place with tradition and class, somewhere you would like to take your loved one to for a special evening.
The well combined menu presents top Danish and French cuisine, serving delicious dishes like Soup of rhubarbs served with coconut ice cream, Pepper-pickled salmon and Grilled scallops and prawns served with chestnuts in bacon, chorizo and saffron.
“The Els”, named after the founder’s wife Elsa, is famous for its superb dining and excellent service, and is rated among the finest restaurants in the Danish capital.
