Danish championship dinner at gäst

Food Expo & Chef of the Year have been moved to autumn 2020. We will announce a new date for our event as soon as possible.


Three tasty courses only DKK 350 

The 22nd of March 2020, our chef Andreas and our student Katarzyna participate in the yearly Danish championship for chefs.
We are very proud of this, which is why we offer the unique possibility to try their championship menu at Restaurant Gäst on Friday 3 April 2020. For good reason we do not know what they are going to create, which is why the menu will not be public before after the competition. However, we encourage you to book your table already, as there is a limited number of seats.

The price is DKK 350 for three courses and the evening will start at 6.30 PM.
We look forward to seeing you for an evening, where the good craftsmanship from our skilled championship contestants will be the focus.

Book your table by emailing
– registration will be binding after 31 March.
