Loved everything, the food (with a few unusual touches and great-tasting ingredients), the service (very friendly and accommodating) and the location.

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

This is my first review of Cap. Horn but I have eaten here before. We wandered along any haven taking in the atmosphere before getting a seat outside and nicely placed not right next to the crowds. The menu is not 14 pages long but that doesn't matter as there are choices for veggies and meat eaters with fish for... More

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
