About us

Almanak tastes of Denmark all year round

Restaurant Almanak i Operaen is our Danish tribute to the French bistro. The seasons form our culinary compass, and we are inspired by the local vegetables, seafood, which are in season right now. When this year's first rhubarb stalks, winter's abundance of root vegetables or the irresistible lumpfish roe arrives completely fresh in the kitchen, it just itches in us to transform them into tasty dishes.

The restaurant is named after the old Danish word for annual calendar, because Almanak is the taste of Denmark all year round.

Almanak i Operaen is the safe choice for the business lunch, romantic dinner or the larger party. Here, the personal and professional service is paramount when our skilled chefs interpret light and elegant versions of modern Danish cuisine, and our sommelier and wait staff add their expertise in exquisite wines.

For lunch, we serve our famous modern open sandwiches, seasonal signature dishes and sumptuous seafood dishes, while the kitchen tonight conjures up seasonal ingredients into delicious menus that exude unadulterated love for the taste of Denmark right now.


Almanak i Operaen is the result of Nordic cuisine’s thoughts on gastronomy prepared from local ingredients in season and with a special focus on the planet’s future. These are thoughts we are proud to carry forward, and today we are working even more purposefully, working through our ‘Manifesto for Sustainability and Gastronomy’ with sustainability in all parts of the restaurant.

Almanak i Operaen is Scandinavian decorated in a stylish Danish design, and has 170 seats inside.

Almanak i Operaen is part of the LOCA Gruppen, which also consists of Almanak, Mission Green, STUDIO, Restaurant Radio and the canteen company The Lunchroom.
