Enjoy the view to The Opera House and the Sixtus Battery with a cold drink and some great food based on sustainable values.
Our ambition is that Toldboden becomes the leading sustainable venue in the North for events and dinning. With more than 15 years of experience Restaurant Julian and Toldboden serve climate-friendly food inspired by the season, local and sustainable, now with vegetables from our own farm Julian Gård.
With the endorsement from both the Minister of Environment and Food of Denmark, as well as the former mayor for Environment and Construction of Copenhagen there is no doubt – you can taste the synergies between our principles “Location, sustainability and enthusiasm”.
Restaurant Julian is the first restaurant in Denmark that has produced a menu that has been approved as climate-friendly by the Minister of Environment and Food. Dedicated to our mission about reducing our use of carbon Restaurant Julian and Toldboden is a prominent member of Climate+, a program sponsored by the City of Copenhagen and the city’s Green Business Network.
Climate friendly dinner
In 2009 Restaurant Julian was pleased to host a climate-friendly dinner for governors from all over the world During the COP15 climate change conference in 2009. Furthermore Restaurant Julian has received attention from the international press such as The New York Times.
In 2008 Restaurant Julian developed a climate-friendly menu to the Minister of Environment and Food and had researchers to investigate how much CO2 a climate-friendly menu produced compared to a traditional menu. The amount of CO2 emissions you avoid by choosing the climate-friendly menu corresponded to the amount that are produced by driving 10 kilometres by car!
Avoid C02 emissions
How much CO2 could you avoid if 200 people chose the climate-friendly menu? Therefore we are doing our best to reduce the use of carbon in our work. We use ingredients based on the principles ”Local, seasonal and free-range”.
Our fresh ingredients are gathered according to principles of buying ‘local, seasonal and field grown’. We offer brunch during the weekends, the harbour grill is open every day. Here you can get different kinds of dishes with fish and seafood, in the evening we also serve “Grill & Greens”. During the weekends we have DJs on the quay and depending on the weather the outdoor sea bar is open.
Furthermore, we use recycled materials in our design and e.g. reuse the heat from the kitchen to heat up Toldboden.
