Dinner at French bistro Je t’aime

Last week, it occurred to me that I hadn’t had a nice dinner out in like two months.

So naturally, I did what every self-respecting foodie would do: I immediately booked a table for a spontaneous date night at a super cute French bistro that I’d been wanting to try!

Je t’aime is located on Dybbølsgade, right by Dybbølsbro station, and oozes Frenchness out of every pore. I love the burgundy red wood paneling, and there are French books and posters. The tables and chairs are delightfully mismatched and if you’re seated by a window, you can people-watch a little bit, too!

We started out with a little apéritif, a kir royal, and enjoyed some homemade crackers with aioli.

I chose a seasonal starter with white asparagus, egg, and watercress. The asparagus was deliciously coated in buttery crumbs, and the eggs added a nice richness to the dish. It may not look like much, but this was absolutely divine.

For mains, we both opted for classics: the boyfriend went with the steak frites, a juicy steak with a flavorful sauce, served with a little side salad and thick, crispy hand-cut fries.

I chose the moules marinières – it’s kinda funny, I was never a seafood person, but recently I’ve found myself really enjoying the occasional serving of mussels; especially when they come in a scrumptious white wine, garlic, and butter sauce as these ones did! In all honestly, I might have just ordered a bucket of the sauce and a couple of slices of bread, because that stuff is liquid gold!

After this French feast, we thought a dessert to share would be our best option.

So we went with the trifecta of crème brûlées: one classic vanilla, one with chocolate, and one with star anise, giving it a little licorice-like taste. They had an amazing caramelized sugar crust with scrumptious custard underneath – cracking my spoon through the sugar is one of my favorite things, ever!

This cute French bistro is a great place to spend a relaxed and casual date night or a nice dinner out with some friends. We paid about 800 DKK for our dinner, including the aperitif and a glass of wine each, which is more than fair.

What’s your favorite French place in Copenhagen? Let me know in the comments so I can try it out!

Merci!

  • All of that food looks wonderful. I appreciate how the decor is rustic and charming while being a little fancy at the same time.

    A new French restaurant just opened up down the street from us. I can’t wait to try it!

    • Hi Marina, I loved the decor, too – it think it’s very typical for Copenhagen, but still had a very distinct French vibe and chic! Hope the new restaurant hits the spot :)
