From the very beginning we have worked with a natural development in our menus and dishes which comply directly to the change of the seasons. Now we want to express it in a more pure and simple way.
Therefore, we also work with three seasons rather than four, which some might say is the obvious choice. Namely the seasons for Flora, Fauna, and the Ocean that surrounds us.
Over time, Restaurant Fauna will grow to a more and more self-sufficient entity in vegetables, herbs and fruits, partly through in-house production, and in close collaboration with quality-conscious and uncompromising local producers.
We believe that through our ambitious and natural joy of authentic gastronomy, we can provide our guests with experiences that reflect the essence of a well-cooked meal based on the absolute best ingredients and produce of the season.

Ida Juul Jonasen
General Manager, Fauna
Chef, creator, cookbook author and creative zealot who is passionate about quality and creative development. Kopp’s resumé is long, and so are his achievements in the world of gastronomy.
With love and respect for nature and the Danish flora and fauna, the shift from Musikkens Spisehus to the new Restaurant Fauna fit perfectly.
“I look forward to show our guests how local surroundings can be reflected in our restaurants, and that ingredients do not have to come from abroad to be the best – on the contrary. Like the rest of the house, we feel an obligation to be at the forefront of sustainability, and we see it as an opportunity to go even further with a locally based kitchen. ”
