A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Denmark House is a small piece of Denmark in the middle of the Melbourne CBD, and host to the Danish Club - possibly the oldest social club in Australia.

Offering the best of Denmark: innovative food served among Danish furniture design in an attractive atmosphere of Danish music and 'hygge' - that quintessential Danish concept of 'cosiness'.

The New Nordic cuisine is one of the leading gastronomic experiences in the world - and Denmark House is an integral part of this Nordic food revolution with its restaurant and bar offering a traditional yet modern Danish experience.


In the evening we serve a contemporary menu inspired by new Nordic cuisine with an emphasis on comfort foods so that guests and members can sample true Danish 'hygge' when dining. And why don't you sample the biggest selection of aquavit or snaps as we call it - in the Southern Hemisphere in our bar which also offers a variety of Danish craft beers and bar food. You all know Danish design, Nordic Noir and Crown Princess of Denmark. Now get ready for a unique experience of the highest quality.

    Fantastic service and great food! Almost feels like being at home, and the Danish music in the background together with the Danish interior styling was perfect! The perfect place if you’re a Dane who have been in Australia for a long time and misses “smørrebrød”.

    This was a wonderful dining experience! I honestly felt like I was back in Copenhagen or Stockholm, Sweden (which has similar local cuisine). I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has spent time in Scandinavia (and likes Scandinavian food).

    A relaxing open and airy restaurant. Staff really make the place! Food was very good, highly recommend the 5 open sandwiches for a set price. They really are very filling as well.

    Place wasn’t really busy, lucky. As there were only 2 people on the floor. Service was quick though but you kinda feel awkward when you get their attention room without being too pushy. I’d go back again for the Eb wine glasses, smorebrod and give them another chance in 2023. I recommend !

    We loved our first visit to Denmark House. The lunch menu was just right for Melbourne's unpredictable weather this November. The options were perfect for temperatures from 15-30 degrees! We'll return again soon.

    Couldn’t find any fault with this, our first Danish eating experience. We shared 5 of the sandwiches including the garlic prawn, crumbed rockling, chicken sous vide and beef brisket. The chicken with its smoky mayo was heavenly. A good introduction to a new cuisine for us and we’d definitely go back.

    A fun and enjoyable experience having lunch at the Danish club on the 3rd floor of Denmark house. Very nice staff, decor and atmosphere. We had Frikadeller (meatballs with pickled cucumber and sauerkraut) and fries. yum.

    The serves are very small, so you need to eat quite a few sandwiches. It can end up being a little expensive. Otherwise, the food was excellent, as was the service.

    It’s long been on the “must visit” list and it did not disappoint. Lovely food and service and excellent value. We will be back for both lunch and maybe drinks and snacks after work!

    Dejlig! Just such a lovely restaurant and so deliciously Danish. The wonderful variety of open sandwiches made our luncheon most enjoyable and memorable - thank you!

    It is always a delight to visit Denmark House. Not being able to eat here during Covid lockdowns was such a hardship. Smørrebrød is always delicious and I’m pleased to hear that they are now open for dinner on Friday nights again. Don’t hesitate to make a booking. You won’t be disappointed!

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.
