When Amagerport Ravelinen was built in 1728, no one could have predicted that it would turn into a popular restaurant 214 years later. It was built as a military guardroom of sorts to defend Copenhagen’s city gate in case of war, and in times of peace it ensured that the correct taxes were paid when the farmers sold their vegetables in the city. Since the restaurant’s opening in 1942, it has been a place for the people. “Ravelinen has always been a place for everyone, and we want it to continue to be that way. The atmosphere is relaxed and cosy, the location is beautiful, the food is made with love and passion, and our prices are fair,” says Preben Brink.
