Marchal, the Michelin-starred restaurant inside the beautiful Hotel D’Angleterre in Copenhagen, is the celebration of haute cuisine and romance converging together in one space. The restaurant is the backbone of the hotel as it was the seed that eventually sprouted into one of Copenhagen’s most esteemed hotels. In 1755 Jean Marchal and Maria Coppy joined together their love and passion for food to create the space and culinary establishment which would eventually grow into the hotel.
Today, a dark and moody space graced with plush fabrics and sleek surfaces makes for the perfect backdrop for a delicious meal. Chef Christian Gadient invites you in to experience the fusion of French and Nordic cuisine created with only the finest fresh and local ingredients. The dinner menu is heavy with seafood, and why not? In Copenhagen, you are at the crossroads of some of the best seafood in the world sourced from the Baltic and North Seas. On the menu you will find items like: torched langoustines, brown crab, friend cod, turbot, monkfish and incredible lobsters. There is a caviar menu which offers a wide variety to choose from as well.
My favorite part of the menu, though, is dessert. Top choices are roasted cacao ice cream, freshly baked lemon tarts and incredibly macarons. You will find service at Marchal to be impeccable. My table was attended to in the most efficient and kind way. There wasn’t a moment not looked after. Dinner here is an experience that must be had on your next visit to Copenhagen. If you’re not free for dinner, lunch and Sunday brunch is also offered.
