My wife booked this restaurant as she was interested in trying one of Copenhagen’s edgy high-end places. I read the menu online before we went and became as petulant as an eight-year-old as I can’t stand precious foodie restaurants. I was so wrong. The food...More

We wanted somewhere special to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and Marv & Ben certainly delivered. We embarked on this gastronomic experience with a glass of champagne and 3 'snacks', then both had the 'Almost everything' menu; one with the pairing wines. All 6 courses...More

I walked in without reservation and was nicely accommodated by the friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner there. Food was good and the service was very prompt and attentive. Truly a Scandinavian experience with a reasonable price tag.

We recently ate at Marv & Ben’s and we’re blown away by the experience. The service was faultless and although we were served by a range of people they were fully cognizant of us. We enjoyed talking to them and learning more about the restaurant...More

We stumbled on this restaurant by accident, as we were visiting Copenhagen for the very first time, and we had no reservation. It was an absolute delight and each menu item on the 4 plate was absolutely delicious and totally awakened all our taste buds....More

Michelin Bib Gourmand rated, but gets close to 1 star rating from me. The best meal of our trip to Copenhagen (we had dinner in 3 different Michelin rated restaurants), such creative and complex dishes, layers upon layers of flavours that work. Amazing that I...More

This restaurant brings pretentious dining to its peak! The menu is a tasting menu ONLY. Don't even think of al la carte for the portion sizes are miniscule. Don't think about ordering wine by the bottle or glass, they want you to order the pairing...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding

We live in a cosy apartment in two floors on the cobbled street Snaregade – one of the oldest streets in Copenhagen, close to the canals. Here, we invite you for Nordic gastronomy, made entirely from scratch and with a true curiosity for new taste experiences and textures. Everything is made from local produce from small-scale producers, and our wine list offers a versatile selection of interesting wines that we ourselves love – biodynamic, organic and conventional wines, as well as natural wine a single glas or full bottle. The previous owner Frederik Hvidt, who has managed the restaurant for 10 years and achieved a Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand six years in a row has sold the restaurant to a couple of young and passionated guys who are proud to carry on Marv & Ben, and do it with great respect for Frederik and his team. We look forward to seeing you.
