Restaurant Delphine – A breath of fresh Mediterranean air
A new restaurant has opened in Copenhagen. It's called Delphine and is the latest add-on from the well-known restaurant chain COFOCO. At Delphine, they have created a universe that seems like exactly that breath of fresh Mediterranean air, the city has been missing for so long. Read about our visit to Delphine below.
Delphine is not the cramped type of Copenhagen restaurant, where you have to apologize to the people seated next to you on the way from your seat. It’s spacious, bright, with high ceilings, and every single element in the premises at Vesterbro supports the refreshing, contemporary, and unpretentious Mediterranean theme.
Most people can recall some sort of bad dining memories from the Mediterranean. The stories of chewy calamari, shamelessly overdone fish, and sad Greek salads with pale tomatoes are endless. At Delphine, however, the time has come to get rid of less gracious food memories.
We picked our dishes from the big a la carte menu with an abundance of seafood. And what we were served, was everything we could have hoped for. Creamy baccala with fluffy flatbread and olive oil, juicy fried calamari with lemon mayonnaise, crispy and sour salad of octopus, baked fennel, olives, and lemon. Despite the full stomachs, we couldn’t leave the restaurant just yet. We couldn’t miss out on the creamy tzatziki that almost every table in the restaurant had ordered. Accompanied by more of the delicious flatbread and grilled lamb skewers, we smeared our way through a plate of tzatziki, with just the right ratio between acid and garlic.
All in all, we had a really good evening at Delphine’s, and for a few hours, it almost felt like being on summer vacation. Luckily, for us and for you, Delphine is a place one can afford to visit time and time again. No matter your mood for food snacks, sharing plates, or the full menu, are going to be a real treat. And just like that, Delphine became one of those places we’ll sneak off to, whenever we have the next chance.
