“Beautiful place, beautiful restaurant, good Danish dishes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I ate at this restaurant with my wife in the evening, after returning from the classic walk along the Stroget, and we were happy.
At noon the local seems less cared for, in the evening instead is very nice, good service, good choice of dishes and good quality food, at least for me being Italian, but the presence of Danes made ​​me think that the dishes are cooked really well. Excellent choice of herring prepared in many ways.
The restaurant is right in the middle of the channel on Nyhavn street, so the location is excellent.
the price is in line with that of the other restaurants of the street :-)

“Best harings ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The location, just at the beginning of Nhyavn channel, is perfect for this historic resturant. The room is under the street level, and it's very welcoming. The choice is not so much varied, but all the dishes (we taste fish, meat and cheese) was very good. I have eat the very best harings ever, served in 5 different flavour. The price is not so friendly, but the service and the quality of the food let you forget about that.

“The herring paradise!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

The herring buffet is amazing! I found at least 15 different types of herring and everyone was delicious (the best ones are the smoked herring and the apple and cream one).
We also tasted Carlsberg beer, a burger and the typical apple pie. Everything was very good!
Hostess are very friendly and perfectly english-speaking.
Just two faults: the service was quite slow (but we were on vacation, not in a hurry) and the food was not cheap!

“Safe choice in Nyhavn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We had a late night dinner in Nyhavns Faergekro. The menu has only 3 main courses, so me and my friend both had the sirloin steak. It was perfectly grilled, tender and tasty. Homemade potato wedges and herb sauce made the meal a bit more special, we loved it. Service was friendly, atmosphere cosy. Will probably go back when we visit Copenhagen again.
