With a great location – directly on the water in harbor of Copenhagen – Restaurant Viva provides an excellent opportunity to experience Copenhagen in a new, luxurious perspective. The neighbors of this boat restaurant are modern Copenhagen landmarks – so from the tables in Viva there is ample opportunity to observe life in the Danish capital.
Restaurant Viva is completely in harmony with the beautiful green nature of the forest, and as a guest, you feel quickly invited into a quiet, green bubble in the midst of the hectic leben of Copenhagen.
However, it is not only in the interior where Viva has a distinct focus on ‘green’. Likewise it applies to the food and the produce, which is as far as possible either organic or biodynamic and comes from local producers or foraging by the staff of Restaurant Viva.
So it is no surprise that the kitchen follows the local season in order to use the best and freshest ingredients all year round when they are packed with flavor.
As Restaurant Viva is sitting directly on the water the dishes are primarily focused on seafood – however, you will always find a few dishes with meat from land.
The lunch menu consists of a selection of light dishes; Such as delicious oysters with pickled shallots, crispy bread and grilled lemon, or a ‘Stjerneskud Royal’ which has a lot of tasty, freshly caught fish in it. There is also the possibility of classics like fish meatballs or a creamy tartar with fresh herbs.
There is no doubt the kitchen in this restaurant is an ambitious one. This also applies to the dinner menu, where you have the option between a la carte or a 3-, 6- or 8-course tasting menu. Here you will find a whole card of delights such as lobster, halibut, kebabs with grilled chicken hearts and liver, the famous UNIKA cheeses and lots of other temptations.
A quick look at the wine list reveals that here too, the selection is one of high standards. You will find a list of quality European producers and a few hidden gems, which will very well accompany the high standard set by the chefs in the kitchen.
A visit to Restaurant Viva certainly has all the ingredients to create a gastronomic evening, which you will not forget any time soon.
