This is a nicely decorated small restaurant on Nyhavn. tables were full outside so we went inside and glad we did. The interior is very nice and decorated in a ship theme with old boat models hanging from the ceiling and a decent little bar. The open face sandwiches were very nice and so was the fish and chips meal.... More

Enjoyed a tasty plate of open sandwiches and a beer one lunchtime in this pleasant spot overlooking the harbour at Nyhavn. There are plenty of tables outside but some are in direct sun and it can get busy. The interior is stylishly decorated and typically Danish. Staff friendly and helpful. Expect to pay a bit of a premium for the... More

Arrogant service, food didn't taste anything at all and very small portions. Went there with my family. Not interested in the customer, just to make money. Go somewhere else.

We ate here on a hot Saturday lunchtime, extremely busy all down the restaurant side of Nyhaven, no seats available anywhere in the shade outside but this place looked pretty good inside and it turned out to be a gem! Very good friendly service, food and presentation. We noted locals & Danes reserved tables here(must be a good sign we... More

Love the location of this place. Food was fresh and very well prepared. A little pricey but worth it i feel because Copenhagen is expensive in general. Definitely recommended..

The concierge at the Marriott recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed. Its location is wonderful--right on a canal in the Nyhavn area. We had an outside table on a beautiful night and enjoyed watching the activity in the area as well as the company of other diners. The food was delicious, our waitress was very pleasant and competent and... More

Good that we reserved ahead as the restaurant was pretty much full, being peak season. We had the meal of the day, which was salmon with a small side dish of potatoes. Overall the taste was nice- nothing to brag about, but a decent meal. Service was friendly. Good for a decent meal at a decent price by Copenhagen prices.

Great burger and salmon for lunch. Wonderful location and helpful staff. Oh and the beer was cold on a very hot day. Back to the burger and fries...they did a great job.

Why not go for a canal tour and have dinner afterwards? This is a great restaurant in Nyhavn recommended by travel books. We made a reservation from the U.S. ahead of time and they gave us a charming table. Food was excellent albeit expensive (This is Copenhagen afterall),and service was attentive and wait staff friendly and cheerful. Sit outside if... More
