    The quality of the food at Denmark house can not be faulted. While the menu is small, everything is cooked to perfection. The portion are large and the atmosphere is comfortable and cozy. The prices are very reasonable. A great find in the city!

    Beautiful food, the herring with beetroot and Dill herring were our favourites. Relaxed atmosphere and very friendly and attentive staff. Staff made recommendations and suggested serving sizes since we hadn't been there before.

    Great welcome and the menu was easy to use. I enjoyed the sandwiches the herring was excellent. The Danish pastry melted in the mouth. Awesome. Very small though. Nice cool space on a hot day. A good experience

    What a wonderful hidden cultural gem! Everything was beautiful & artistic: food, presentation, all the beautiful micro herb, chairs, drawings on walls, decoration, and the photos & message of Princess Mary! We really had a great time; would definitely recommend :) Thank you.

    Not many vegetarian options, but the staff were willing to accommodate. The drinks selection is unique and includes flights of akvavit and paired mini sandwiches. It's a really novel dining experience for Melbourne.

    Some of the staff were very attentive and some were not that great. Nearly all our dishes were delicious but pork belly was dry.

    Selection of interesting and pretty toppings for open sandwiches for lunch. Selection of akvavit and other drinks. The Danish decor was open, light and airy.

    I truly hope that this establishment survives financially because its cuisine is absolutely delicious ; the ambience is warm and welcoming; the service is flawless, and being able to have pre-dinner drinks in the adjoining bar is a real bonus. However Denmark House (aka. The Danish Club is sadly under patronised due to its remote off-street location.

About the restaurant

Unless you have Nordic blood, you probably haven’t been to Melbourne’s Danish Club. The Danes are renowned for creating clean and simple dishes, and Dansk (housed on the third level of the city’s Danish House) is the epitome of this kind of cooking. If you’re not a member you’ll have to sign up at the main door, and the feeling of exclusivity is electric. Inside pale-oak floorboards, exposed beams, funky furniture and lighting are a reminder of why the Danes are also known for their design skills. The menu features contemporary Danish cuisine created by chef Bente Grysbaek: a herring platter, wiener schnitzel and a dessert cheese platter (featuring only Danish cheeses of course) are some of the shining stars on the menu. Its time to get acquainted with this northern cuisine. Try something new, you won’t regret it!

Best Dish: pork and veal meatballs served with braised red cabbage, cucumber salad and organic rye bread.
