    As a Dane, it is great to be able to enjoy genuine danish cuisine with an Australian twist. The herring that they serve is the best I’ve eaten outside of Denmark. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    The Danish Club is the most wonderful, relaxed, light filled and spacious place for a superb lunch or dinner overlooking the trees and inner city. Beautiful Danish food and very friendly and efficient service.

    This is a special place, in the CBD but off the beaten track. The lunch menu is a wide variety of Danish open-face sandwiches -- we had 5 between us, and that was plenty, along with two side dishes. The wine list is extensive, and there is a nice collection of Danish beers and aquavits. Important for us, the noise level is low enough that we can talk without raising our voices. Highly recommended.

    We had an amazing and authentic Danish Christmas lunch in this restaurant. The Smørrebrød was delicious and the beers and akvavit was on point. Also, the restaurant's interior was very nice and Danish. I absolutely felt my Danish home vibes during the lunch.

    A really superb lunch ! The open sandwiches were truly magnificent visual creations, and flavourful and absolutely delicious delights to savour and enjoy. Topped with reasonable prices and great service in a rustic yet modern barn style restaurant right in the middle of the city.

    Great service, great food, great atmosphere! This is the closest you’ll ever get traditional Danish food anywhere in Australia. The furnishings the table were and the products are all superb.

    My fiancée and I were pretty excited about the børebrood ( I hope I've spelt it right ) and we were actually blown away from them... definitely gotta have the three mushroom one for sure and all of the rest were delicious as well. Simple but fancy in their own way!!

    First day back after Covid restrictions and everything is as amazing as usual. We had the smørrebrod lunch with a mixture of authentic and non authentic varieties. The service as usual was fantastic. Smiles all round and attentive to your needs. A reminder to all customers now starting to get back to restaurants and cafes. Treat hospitality workers with respect and patience. They are navigating this world with only one thing in mind-making us happy. They are playing their part in making this new world a place that is somewhat familiar to the one we enjoyed pre covid. A little bit of kindness and a smile goes a long way.

    Great food, not too many choices but my family of 4 had a reasonable variety, beef cheek divine, good selection of beers, huge area so social distance can be applied

    This is the second time we have frequented this restaurant and it will now be on our ‘must visit’ when in town. Not only are the meals amazing but they are so reasonably priced. The beef cheeks are water in the mouth delicious. The atmosphere is relaxing and the drinks moorish!

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.
