Pluto Copenhagen Reviews
Mickey goes to see what on the menu at Pluto’s Aug 15, 2013
Pluto is a pretty new restaurant in the center of Copenhagen which opened in the fall of 2012. Ever since it open I kind of felt obliged to go. After all Mickey have to go and visit a restaurant called Pluto. So finally after a bit of a wait I decided to go.
The place was very busy for a Monday night – I sort of expected to see a few empty tables but everything was full and while we were eating they got a second seating going on some tables as well. They even had the outdoor serving going as well – which considering the fast disappearing Danish summer seemed a bit cold and wet with the showers happening during dinner time.
The menu consist of many small dishes which you can mix and match as you please or you can go for 12 courses chosen by the chef and shared by everybody at the table. The latter option seems like the best value at 450 DKK per person. The 12 courses you will have is generally the same you can get if you pick from the menu but there is also a few special surprised from the chef which isn’t on the menu. The food is served “family” style which is just the restaurants word for the food is coming on a common plate instead of individual plates.
We went for the 12 courses which came in sections with a handful of snacks and starters hitting the table more or less simultaneously so you could mix the different snacks. After enjoying the first section there was a short break before the next round of dishes hit the table. This time it was three seafood dishes getting on the table – again they came on the same time so you could taste a bit of all in random order.
The seafood was followed by a couple of meat dishes before the main dish of them all arrived – which was a stuffed quail. Finally we had two desserts. The dinner was a decent size so there was no room for coffee and sweats afterwards.
There are a wide selections of wines to choose from and a bar serving various cocktails if you like to start with this before dinner. The food is very good and even though you can’t really call it cheap it is very good value for dining in Copenhagen.
The main problem with the restaurant was the table and chairs. The chair was a bit uncomfortable for sitting on it for a good couple of hours and the table was a bit on the small side when the dishes came in several at a time. We were pressed for space especially during the snack/starter section of the meal.
Unfortunately there is no discounts available even if your name is Mickey - I kind of had my hopes of for this.

Great food with reasonable price Aug 12, 2013
This restaurant becomes one of my favorite places in Copenhagen which offers good quality food with reasonable price.
The restaurant locates in the center of Copenhagen which opened in the 2012.
It was busy when we were there on weekday and I assume the food must be good and luckily we have book a table in advance.
There are plenty of dishes to choose from the menu and they also has a set menu of 12 courses chosen by the chef and shared by everybody at the table.
We choose the 12 course menu experience and we were really happy with it. The snacks come first before the entrée and then the entrée come simultaneously with big plates on our small table. There is a little break in between the entrée, the main meal and the dessert.
The food was really good and I really enjoy the big prawn from Madagascar and the stuffed quail.
I would definitely going back to this restaurant and would recommend this to friends.
