We just wanted to dine at one of the restaurants along the Nyhavn during our layover in Copenhagen. It is a romantic place (especially at night) with friendly staff and the meal was just ok. Good place if you want to dine late at night as you won't have many options.

I visited here with my husband around Christmas time. We had a lovely meal and there was a lovely atmosphere- the food was of a high quality, tasty and used seasonal produce and there was a nice variety on offer. The staff were friendly and contributed to the easy-going atmosphere. The surroundings were nice, with an old fashioned nautical theme... More

First, I can't believe your "don't go there" reviewer went to the same place, as our experience was very positive from start to finish. Not outrageously expensive, lovely outlook/staff/food, good service, would definitely recommend and go there again.

This restaurant is actually the perfect place to eat in if you happen to be in Copenhagen Nyhavn. The location is very beautiful and elegant.. but the best part of the restaurant are the princesses that work there. They all look nice, sophisticated, extremely beautiful and welcoming. Service was A+. The food is also curated in every detail and tasty.... More

Typical tourist restaurant, food is beliw average, waiting time far above, no taste, no space, no quality, no quantity, no atmosphere, totally overstated reviews. There are only two OK things: the location in a great area (but don't sit inside) and the kindness of the staff but this doesn't make a restaurant. Just avoid at all cost !

A restaurant in a tourist location, so wasn't expecting much and they delivered average. My food had very little flavor, but they had good service with a nice staff

After an afternoon of sight seeing in Copenhagen we looked for a place to relax and have a few drinks outside along the canal. Cap Horn looked very inviting and had room for the four adults and a one year old. We spend a lovely hour-and-a-half with a variety of hot and cold drinks. It was late March and some... More

The restaurant staff were very helpful when I explained that I needed a Gluten Free diet. They said they could adapt anything on the menu to suit me. Not a cheap place to eat but highly recommended. Beautiful surroundings and the interior of the restaurant is 'a little quirky'!

I've visited a few places in nyhavn, but this has so far been the best in terms of food. The atmosphere is very nice on the terrace and the food (had the sole with garnish) was well prepared and fresh. Was not very impressed with the white wines sold by the glass.
