The À la Carte experience at the opera

Located on the Opera House's top balcony, the Almanak restaurant in the Opera offers a truly unique dining experience in Copenhagen. Despite our location within the Opera House, we are open to everyone, for any occasion. You do not need a ticket to a performance to enjoy our unique setting and the spectacular architecture of the Opera House. Here, we celebrate tranquility and enjoyment—thus, table reservations for the restaurant come without time restrictions within the restaurant's opening hours.

The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday:

Evening: 17:30 – 24.00
Last possible reservation: 20:30

Seafood platter

Minimum 2. persons

We often associate seafood with sun and summer, but Nordic seafood actually tastes its best during the winter period.
The cold water ensures a slow growth, providing the shellfish with a unique sweetness and depth of flavor.




During the last four Saturdays leading up to Christmas, from November 25th to December 16th, 2023, Almanak will be offering a Danish Christmas buffet against the backdrop of perhaps Denmark's best view.

Delightful cuisine in beautiful surroundings, coupled with good company, forms the focal point as we extend invitations to a maximum of 50 guests for a Christmas luncheon on the 4th balcony of the Opera.
