Decent food for everyone

Cap Horn has a limited a la carte - but serves fish, meat,as well as vegetarian. Wine can be bought a reasonable price and everything is served in a very decent quality in a setting with a long interesting history. Nyhavn has many tourist traps, but this restaurant is decent .

Once Copenhagen's Red Light District, Nyhavn (New Harbor) is now the place to go for fine dining along a beautiful canal. Cap Horn is one of its top restaurants, serving a fine meal with a nautical ambience in its environs. Reserve a table in the main room near the fireplace - very special.

We spent 3 days in Copenhagen post cruise and my husband was determined to have a local fish (plaice) for dinner one night. Many of the restaurants in the Nyhavn featured outdoor sitting, (blankets and heaters provided) but we were looking for indoor seats. Cap Horn is a lovely old house, small, cozy and tastefully decorated. The staff was very... More

This traditional restaurant in Nyhavn is a must stop in Copenhagen, is an old house that is perfectly kept since it opened, the staff is young & friendly and the menu has traditional dishes of Denmark, don't miss the cheese plate

Definitely a must go whilst in Copenhagen. Located at the popular Nyhavn area. This is a great place to stop for lunch/dinner. You have the choice of sitting outside or inside. On a nice day its very popular to be sat outside to enjoy the food and to delight the sight with the beautiful view. Cap Horn is best for... More

We stopped here is our continued search for vegan restaurants - not many vegan dishes to offer, what they had was minimal and way over priced. Interesting place to sit and watch the world go by, but wouldn't eat here again.

If you are in Nyhavn it is very difficult to choose a restaurant. Along the chanel there are in every house at least one. But we were lucky, this was an excellent restaurant, very good food, very friendly staff.

We stopped for a coffee before a canal trip simply because there was a sunny table available but we were so pleased with our choice. Once we'd been inside and seen how nice it is, and also looked at the menu, we resolved to come back for lunch. Needless to say there were no outside tables available on our return,... More

We arrived late to Copenhagen, placed our luggage at the hotel, and searched for a late snack around Nyhavn. We ended up at Cap Horn, wich was the only restaurant with an open kitchen. The deer was good, the mushroomsauce amazing, and the local brewed beer they served was nicely done. We came back the night after for a few... More
