Quality food

I had a brunch here on the last day of my short stay in CPH. Located on the old harbour, the place is packed with tourist groups and tend to be very artificial in its design and presentation. But this should not stop you from getting in and try anything from their very interesting menu. They... read more

We ate lunch here while visiting the Nyhavn area. The ambience is fine with nicely spaced tables, a fireplace and a good view to the harbour. We ate wonderful burgers and drank their own organic beer. A fine stop for lunch.

My friends and i visited the beautiful and sunny Copenhagen in April. Only thing that spoiled our otherwise perfect spring vacation, was our first evening dinner in Cap Horn restaurant. The food we ordered was absolutely hideous, which really surprised us, because Cap Horn restaurant was really high valued in many recommendations we read. We felt ourselves being tricked, because...

Ate here as we had been walking for a while and just wanted a meal. Place is tiny and was packed for a Monday night. Staff were really friendly but it was weird when they were standing there at our table as we got the money ready for the bill (maybe because I was counting out coins). The hanging lights... More

After reading many good reviews me and my friends thought it would be a great place to start our extended weekend in Copenhagen. Our night ended up in a "restaurant nightmare" Three of our crowd ordered the sirloin steak. When we got the portions the disappointment was instant. The portions consisted of 1/4 of a almost raw cabbage-head. (with the... More

This place was absolutely perfect. The service was perfect, the food was amazing, reasonably priced, and there was live music right in front of it, and the atmosphere was great. Do yourself a favor and eat here, you wont regret it!

We went to Cap Horn for dinner on our first night in Copenhagen. The restaurant was cosy, the waitress was attentive and the food was perfectly OK. We also went there one day for late lunch sitting outside. It was really a lovely way to spend the afternoon in the sun watching people coming and going and listening to music... More

Our first evening in Copenhagen, and what a great impression of the city! We sat outside for a beer, then as the cold got a bit much we were shown indoors to a very comfortable and welcoming restaurant. The super-friendly staff had excellent English and made us feel they were delighted with all our requests and choices. When the food... More

A great ringside seat to watch the comings and goings aroung Nyhavn (including boat repairs!). We returned for dinner. Food was very good but the portions were rather small.
