Frederiks Have Frederiksberg Reviews
Eating good in Frederiksberg Jan 15, 2010
In the middle of Frederiksberg, which actually is a city inside Copenhagen you can find this nice and cosy restaurant. The restaurant has a very light and clean appearance and the serice is always nice here.
The restaurant has a huge terrace in front of the main building and sitting outside here on a summer evening is fabulous. The restaurant is situated behind Frederiksberg Town Hall if you are coming from Copenhagen city centre and it is almost directly next to Frederiksberg Have (garden) which is one of the best recreation areas in the city.
The dishes are light and of very good quality. In the kitchen there are 1 Danish and 3 Swedish cooks working, which can be seen on the menu which is always inspired of the Nordic kitchen.
The building itself is approximately 130 years old and has ever since been central for many different enterprises. Since 1899 it was primarily utilised by a haulage contractor, but for about 70 years ago, around 1938, it got inaugurated into the restaurant business.
In the aftermath of the liberation of Denmark after the Second World War, a part of the resistance movement “Frit Danmark” had its office above the restaurant's present premises. Over the years the building has also been the host of Den Kongelige Porcelænsfabrik (today known as Royal Copenhagen Denmark), where the ladies painted carton plates, which they gave out on Strøget. Subsequent the house has been used for various pubs like Villa Caféen and Virginia Bar. It is thus no more than 16 years ago that Frederiks Have could have been considered a pub where brawls and the like wasn't an unusual sighting.
For the first time, in 1992, the restaurant gets the name “Frederiks Have” by the restaurateur couple Annie and Bent Olsen, where the venue changed to more comfortable and warm surroundings. This tradition has henceforth been carried on to the present date by the new owners of Frederiks Have; Eva and Ole Sellberg
