Selected by INSIDER

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.

INSIDER tip

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.

    Best Danish sandwiches outside Denmark. Great service and fantastic atmosphere. Highly recommended for someone wanting something a little different to an ordinary sandwich.

    Food was delicious. Proper authentic smorgasbor. Generous servings at good prices. Feels a little bit run down these days on the interior.

    Consistently great food and service, especially after Covid. It's the same excellent service and the food is still amazing. Who'd think open sandwiches could be so good.

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.
