“Really rude service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We wanted to go in to warm up for a while and have a cup of coffee. The waitress was extremely rude, she stood by our table the entire time we were here and practically threw us out the minute we had drank our coffee. For their expensive prices you could expect a bit friendlier service.

“Cozy place and good food- the service could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is a really charming place at Nyhavn. The food was very good as well and the price pretty affordable for the location of the restaurant.

The only thing that would have made our visit better was more welcoming service. Service people who don't smile at all are really not that a pleasant addition. Still - no magor errors from the service staff though.

“What a beauty.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I researched for more than a couple of hours online to find this place in Nyhavn .

It is excellent for a cosy evening meal with excellent food and service.

There's no big deal about coffee, they give you a coffee plunger that will do about 6 cups. Leave what you don't want.

Good for repeat visits.

“good service, pretty good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

In the tourist-filled Nyhavn this is not one of the many tourist traps: the food is more than decent and the service is excellent. I had a remarkable brunch, helped y a wonderful sun.
