If you're getting your thrills at Tivoli, jolly Grøften is a handy place to refuel. Sure it's a bit touristy, but it's been here since 1874, making it a bit of a local institution. Reminisce about the good old days over smørrebrød classics like hand-peeled shrimps with lemon and mayonnaise, or tackle the mains, which includes gutsy, no-nonsense meat and fish dishes.

Portions are on the larger side.
