We wanted to eat dinner somewhere in Nyhavn, and had a few places on a list. Cap Horn had a free outdoor table, so we were seated and enjoyed the view of the waterway. The service was mostly good, although we did have to locate our server a few times (it was busy, and there may not have been enough... More

Went here on a cold night. All inside tables booked due to there being a conference on in Copenhagen, but decided to sit outside under cover close to a heater. Not a massive choice on the menu, but enough to please most people. I opted for the Cap Horn burger, only to be told this was only available at lunchtime.... More

Our day in Copenhagen started with coffee here and the ambience of the restaurant immediately appealed so we decided to return for lunch. Inside it has an immediately welcoming feel to it with a log fire in the middle so on a wet cold day this is a place you like to be in. We went for the Smorrebrod lunch... More

Tasty lamb and steak - and potatoes are excellent, plus they keep refilling. They make their own beer, which is really good. Great location on Nyhavn.

Good beer, good vibe, good for people watching and generally for getting a feel of Nyhavn. It's surely touristy, but wouldn't mind a quick drink here!

We thought this place delivered very well. Surely it should be judged on Danish food. One wouldn't expect herring in Kansas City--why eat burgers in Copenhagen! Anyway,a starter of smoked mackerel was followed by roasted cod and lamb. The cod was gently seared, served with the superb potatoes which one funds in this city. The lamb had excellent flavour and... More

Myself and my husband had a meal at this restaurant the other night. let me preface my review by stating that we were warned that the food was overpriced on Nyhavn for what it was but we didn't expect it to be bad aswell. Very friendly staff member advised us to wait for a table at which we were seated... More

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.
