Thoroughly enjoyed!

My boyfriend and I visited Cap Horn on Monday the 12th of March for our evening meal. We were running late for our reservation but were assured that was ok and when we arrived we given arguably the best table in the house (it's the round one by the fire if you're interested). The food and... read more

We chose Cap Horn at random walking through Nyhavn. The food was amazing and the service was very attentive. The atmosphere inside the restaurant very much matches the feel of the harbor area. I would definitely come back to this establishment.

Came here twice over the weekend and two very different experiences. On the first night it was good with attentive friendly service and delicious food. The second night, when it was practically empty, the service was much less attentive and the food incredibly salty - a Dover Sole crusted in salt accompanied by extremely salty vegetables - almost worthy of...

I went to Cap Horn as it was recommended in the guide book. It was a lovely sunny if a bit breezy day, so all of the outside tables were gone, we therefore sat inside. It is a lovely restaurant, very cosy and with a jazz musician playing whilst you eat- all very relaxed and nice. We ordered the burgers... More

Great hearty Scandinavian food, friendly staff, cozy atmosphere. A good find in Copenhagen. Deconstructed carrot cake is a must try!

We received a nice warm welcome from the very friendly staff. Very cosy on a cold winters night with a log fire in the centre of the room. The food was delicious and the service excellent

Great traditional smørresbrød, very friendly lady who seemed to be running everything, so willing, helpful, friendly & looked after us including my 2year old. The deer was delightful & the atmosphere cosy on a very brisk February lunchtime. Would love to go back again next visit

I visited Cap Horn on a rather cold sunny February on a short trip to Cph. I was offered to sit somewhere on the end of the restaurant but when I noticed the spot by the fireplace in which the wood was burning I moved by it. This is the best spot in the restaurant for one or two people.... More

I've been three times to Cap Horn during December and January. 2 times with my family and 1 time with a friend. I really like this restaurant. It's very cosy inside with the open fire place. A warm atmosphere where you feel welcome from the first minute you come in. The food is great. Both for the meet or the... More

Traditional place for morning beer, when you are off the ferry from Oslo, Nice , cosy danish atmosphere - and there is nothing like a "Gammel Dansk" in the morning.
