Chef with Michelin experience

Le Coq en Pâte is Østerbro's French ‘petit’ bistro. Here, French classics are served with a contemporary touch, to which the chefs like to add a taste twist or two.

The restaurateurs, Frederic and Andrei, come from France and Romania respectively. Frederic has previously had his own restaurant on French soil, and Andrei has cooked at several Danish Michelin restaurants. The two gentlemen create a present atmosphere by alternately standing behind the pots and being out on the floor among the guests.

The French food gets reviews on TripAdvisor:

"Lovely French inspired bistro. Got 3 really delicious dishes, the food is without a doubt made with love"

"We had ordered a menu through Early Bird and were certainly not disappointed"

"Coq en Pâte is a cozy little bistro with really nice food. You feel very welcome and the staff are extremely attentive and picky about you"

"Like being in France ... cozy, intimate rooms and excellent food that made you dream back to Paris"

The French expression

‘Comme un Coq en Pâte’ is an old French term which in english means something like: ‘to be pampered and live without worries’ - a mindset which Frederic and Andrei build their restaurant values by.

They like to share their passion for the homecooked meal with fresh ingredients of high quality.
