Cap Horn has very good, almost sophisticated food and ambience, for an honest price, inspite of being at probably the most turistic strech in Copenhagen. The service is also reasonable, expecially in a city that does not stand out for good restaurant service, maybe due to the lack of a tradition on tips. Locals don't tip as a rule of... More

We sat outside and had burgers one sunny September afternoon in Copenhagen. The food was okay, service pleasant but slow. We enjoyed the view and the street life, many pedestrians, boats, bicycles, in beautiful but touristy Nynhavn. This is close to a stop for the Hoho canal boat, and there are numerous restaurants along the canal. Great place for an... More

We loved the atmosphere here, and felt like we were transported back a few hundred years, yet very comfortable. It is in a very touristy area but once inside you feel like you are being well taken care of. My wife had the steak and I the lamb. She likes her stake medium, but this came back blue. and the...

It is a typical touristic place, crowds of people and narrow place. However the service is very fast, the food is delicious, although the menu is poor. The wine selection is good.

Food OK. Service good. For a touristy spot on the canal it was a good choice. According to our Danish friend, it is an old restaurant and reliable--perhaps, unlike the other restaurants in Nyhaven.

I ordered RETTEN I DAG, it was salmon. The salmon tasted fresh and great. Although I thought the taste would be better if the skin is crispy. My group also ordered: LAM, SØTUNGE, STRIPLOIN and Cod Fish. The verdict was all food tasted great. The lamb was tender and no weird lamb smell. Cod Fish portion was a tad too... More

The food taste awesome, and staffs are very friendly and helpful. Location is great, right next to the river. Dining area has nice setting. Price on the high side, but not ridiculous, worth a visit!
