Popped in to Cap Horn for late lunch/early dinnerone day dring a mini break to Copenhagen in late Jan. It didn't look much different to the other small cafes from the outside, but inside it was quite lovely. Candle-lit tables, lots of nautical themed items on the walls, quite a cosy atmosphere! My boyfriend and I both had the deer... More

Don't be put off by the small menu, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal here! Lovely beef cheeks and venison for our mains, with crème brûlée and cheese selection for dessert. Very friendly and sweet young waiter as well. Prices not bad considering the area. Highly recommend :)

Besides the good food, this restaurant has a cosy atmosphere and a warm feel. The pretty waitresses that work here are also exceptionally friendly and helpful. They also speak good English. It is located in the picturesque area of Copenhagen called Nyhavn. I would highly recommend. Enjoy!

Really a wonderful experience. Tasteful fish and meat dishes. The only negative aspect is the price: really very expensive.

We were a group of 41 (35 teenagers and 6 members of staff) on a school trip to Copenhagen and we booked a dinner at the Cap Horn. We were given a private room at the top of the restaurant - although it was dark, there were lovely views and the lighting and decorations made it subtly festive. We wanted... More

A very nice restaurant with a very nice staff. You can eat typical danish meal, which is well prepared. Just a little expensive, but you are on the nyhavn canal, one of the best places in Copenhagen.
