If you want a spicy evening, go Mexican! La Neta is located in the center of Nørrebro and offers a cozy, authentic atmosphere as well as delicious Mexican food.

Enjoy your date along with some Mexican beers or drinks, and it is almost guaranteed that you will have a nice evening.

Get a premium dining experience on a student budget! Sounds too good to be true? Well, yes, but despite this fact it is actually what you get at Olive Kitchen & Bar in the center of Copenhagen. The small selection of dishes indicates that these few servings have been perfected by the chefs. With a soft lighting and a cozy atmosphere, you can enjoy your dinner while you impress your date with your knowledge of cool places in Copenhagen. 

Another restaurant with a short and simple menu card is 20A in the heart of Nørrebro. The parts of their menu changes daily or weekly, so despite the short selection, you can come back often and try something new. In addition to the delicious food, they have a nice selection of wine which the waiters will gladly tell you more about. The food, drinks, and atmosphere will almost guaranteed take your date’s breath away.

Italian food is a classic and a clear winner for a date, and Babbo-Ria in Frederiksberg offers exactly that.
