We recently visited Copenhagen for a weekend vacation and I made sure to do some research beforehand and jotted down the addresses to a couple of restaurants, cafés, and shops I wanted to visit.
I found BioMio listed somewhere as one of the top vegetarian restaurants in Copenhagen. We decided to give it a try on our first night in the city. BioMio is an all organic restaurant that serves both non-vegetarian and vegetarian dishes, including some vegan options. Our visit was on a Thursday evening and we had no difficulty getting a table. The restaurant is big and open with high tables as well as a lounge-like area with a slightly more intimate atmosphere and smaller tables.
We were served delicious warm bread with organic olive oil while waiting for our food. I ordered the vegan main which was creamy polenta with steamed and grilled onions, pickled red onions, onion stock & cremolata. It sounded a little bit heavy on the onion, but I was willing to give it a go. Unfortunately, it was exactly that… a lot of onion, yet surprisingly lacking in flavour. You’d think that all that onion would give it more of a punch but the overall impression it gave was uninspired and bland.
Although I like the concept of BioMio and their mission to only use organic products and produce, if given the opportunity, I’m not so sure I’d return.

Lacking in flavour, uninspired and unsatisfying. Will likely not return or recommend.
