We needed somewhere in a hurry to give our kids dinner and picked the sea food restaurant Havfruen. The menu is slightly strange in that there are only 3 main courses. We picked starters (fish and chips, mussels and chips) which were decent enough portions The food was good though the service a little slow. The restaurant is dated and... More

The strangest entrecôte I've ever had; it was a quite pricey meal and when the plate was brought to the table I thought it was pork instead of beef. The shape of the meat was more similar to a pork steak than any entrecôte I've ever seen in my life. For that price, not worth it.

Had breakfast. Barely passable. I would go to sit outside and have a beer. Location is great. Server was attentive and pleasant.

Very nice place to spend a morning at, with beautiful outer space, nice staff, and - of course - OYSTES! In Copenhagen, where you can easily eat seafood as much as you want (and of course you want), oysters are not so hard to find. We spent here a beautiful morning, ate 6 of oysters, drank a glass of champagne,... More

Visited here today. To be honest the food is only average- the position is the attraction, situated on the canal at Nyhaven. I had fish and chips and my wife, mussels. Whilst it purports to be a fish restaurant it caters mainly for tourists. The service is fine and the value reasonable but it faces stiff competition from the restaurants... More

We came in to taste oysters late on a lazy morning. The place is one of the many on the Nyhavn with a very cozy and nice outside display. You cant make a mistake here with oysters and champagne and what made the place special for us was one of the waiters who realised we spoke Hungarian so he came... More

The Nyhavn area is a lovely area to sit and soak the atmosphere of Copenhagen. We visited twice due to the good value,great service and lovely outdoor setting. You can also sit inside and this looked lovely with the candlelit setting. We had the fish and chips basic - yes - but tasty and good value for 98k. There were... More

This was my absolute favorite meal of our vacation. I had the special which was a poached monk fish with lobster in a wonderful butter sauce. I would be sure to return. The service was not the greatest, but the food made up for that issue.

I was in Copenhagen for a conference and went there for lunch. Nice table by the canal. I opted for the oysters to start. Wonderfully fresh with a tart shallot vinaigrette. I went for the crabmeat salad for main and I have to say it wasn't what I expected. I was presented with a plate of mayonnaise dressed crab and... More
