Had read good reviews and was pleased to get seated outside. Not the best table as menu was immediately above our table so had a few passers by stopping alongside. Food was very good, very fresh vegetables and a decent beef steak. Good relaxed atmosphere during jazz festival.

My husband ordered the Dover Sole with steamed potatoes and grilled veggies. It was an excellent dish. I ordered gazpacho and couldn't finish it because of the bitter flavor. The bread was excellent and the house red wine (Spain) was, too. Our table was outside and we loved the setting by the canal.

Good location in always popular Nyhavn district, which is full of bars, pubs and restaurants. It was little windy, so we decided to eat inside. Rustic interior and absolutely great service, our young blonde waitress was smiling, fast and spoke perfect English. CPH is quite expensive city and if you are in popular area like Nyhavn, so this place isn't... More

Inside eating is nice due to the old and nicely restored interior. Professional and friendly staff. Limited wine list . Food was OK, but not gourmet class and a bit on the expensive side. Probably because it is located in Nyhavn!

This restaurnat is located in Nyhavn, a popular place for tourist, outdoor restaurants along the way and canal boat tours. It's menu is similar to many other eateries along Nyhavn and like many has both indoor and outdoor seating. Because it was a bit chilly for us, we ate indoors and found it to be quiet so you could talk... More

I am someone who doesnt eat meat, including fish, so starving in Copenhagen is likely... yet I came up on this place along the very tourist trip (but for a reason! it is very cute and fun!) and they had three vegetarian options. Plus really yummy dessert. It is a little overpriced, yes, but the staff are lovely, speak English,... More

I organised a dinner at Cap Horn for a family reunion- based on the recommendation of a native Dane. I contacted the restaurant directly via email for the reservation- and received a confirmation. When the family arrived - we were told that they had received a cancellation from us via email that day and that we only have x amount... More

Staff was friendly and attentive. Fish is delicious and the wine is just as good. I'd prefer to sit outside as the inside is a bit dark but im sure it's lovely during the winter time.

Step inside Cap Horn and you move away from the bustle of Nyhavn and into a much more traditional and tranquil area. Service my the multitude of young multi lingual waitresses was excellent and her choice of wine was well informed and spot on - well done. Food was very good and despite it being a busy evening with people... More

The canal tour stops here in Nyhavn and we felt it was a good idea to have lunch here, we don't normally do touristy places however there were some locals so we decided to give it a shot. The vegetarian options were poor and my older son ended leaving hungry. As a gluten free option I was offered the baked... More
