Hard to beat the location, outside, right on the waterfront at Nyhavn. Actually was not expecting it too be so good as this is such a touristy location. I was going to choose the lamb at 200 DKK but thought I'd ask what the daily special was. Baked salmon fillet served on a bed of buttery red and green capsicum... More

We came here having read all the very good comments and it was just disappointing. Yes, the prices are in line with the other restaurants, but we did not find the quality we expected: the burger was not tasty at all and the bread of the smorrebrood not good to be chewed

I highly recommend this restaurant. Of all the wonderful places we visited in Copenhagen this restaurant stands out for excellent service, fantastic food which was locally sourced from organic suppliers, and a wonderful view. The special of the day was a white fish that I was unfamiliar with but found delicious. We were celebrating our anniversary and could not have... More

We stopped here for a coffee break. The coffee was good, the tea was served in a proper tea pot and service was very efficient. It was a lovely morning and we sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine and the views over Nyhavn. This restaurant will accept payment in Euros if you haven't changed your money to Danish Krone.

This was a very nice place to stop and recover during a long day...pleasant staff, tasty quinoa salad, but the avocado was not ripe enough to serve and they should have not put it in...

The food is great, Cold wine in buckets, great hospitable service, fun staff (ask the story about their titles, its funny...) Prices are very reasonable, for the area, and the quality better than what you could fear in a touristy area such as Nyhavn. Have eaten there twice now, and will definetely return. In summer time, come before 5pm, to... More

First of all, the waitresses were friendly and nice. I went here for a classic burger which usually is a safe choice. You could say so also here, but that might be the problem too. The burger was totally average and gave nothing but a full stomach.

During our recent visit to Copenhagen, our hotel was a short 2 blocks from the Nyhavn area. My wife stopped in for a morning coffee and croissant. Coffee was excellent and croissants were very fresh and good! Highly recommend! Great people watching area!

Though the choices are limited, the food is delicious in this cozy little restaurant among the hundreds of restaurants in Nyhaven. I had the 3 course menu, which this evening was a crabmeat salad, venison, and 'lime pie' - which was actually a scrumptious thick 'cookie' of sorts. My husband had mushrooms on toast and crab, which is always a... More

Last time we sat outside but a bit later in the evening - but full this time around so took an open window table within to people-watch the passing visitors. Great situation on Nyhavn, with an excellent meal and wine, served by very attentive staff. Varied menu with specials. I would return again on next visit to Copenhagen - just... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
