Denmark House is a small piece of Denmark in the middle of Melbourne CBD. Offering the best of Denmark: wonderful Danish food, served in beautiful Danish design in a enjoyable atmosphere of Danish music and “hygge”, which translates as ‘coziness’.
The New Nordic cuisine is one of the leading gastronomic experiences in the world. Denmark House is part of this Nordic food
revolution and the restaurant and bar will provide you with a traditional yet modern Danish experience.
For lunch we offer 20 different kinds of “smørrebrød” – the traditional Danish open sandwich. You can choose your own selection or go for the tasting platter, a healthy lunch option when you fancy something different.
In the evening we serve a 3 or 5 course tasting menu from the innovative New Nordic cuisine.
Our bar offers a variety of Danish craft beers and traditional aquavit. We have the biggest selection of Aquavit in the Southern Hemisphere.
We also arrange a variety of special events about Danish food and culture. If you are interested in participating in any of our events then follow us on Facebook.
You all know Danish design, Nordic Noir and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. Now get ready for a unique dining experience of the highest quality.
Our executive chef Bente Grysbaek has travelled from a small village in the far north of Denmark over the hustle and bustle in award winning restaurants in Copenhagen to get to Denmark House in Melbourne.
Since 2009, Grysbaek’s passion has been translated into the food she and her team create at Denmark House where they are currently serving the largest selection of traditional Danish smorrebrod in Australia.
The produce used at Denmark House takes centre stage and by honouring its journey from farm to table, Grysbaek works hard to create a menu that leans on time long Danish cooking traditions while embracing traditions of the vast country, she now calls home.
Without fear of failure, Grysbaek will take you on a culinary journey, you won’t forget.
Denmark House is supported by the Dannebrog Foundation.
