Sorry to be a bit on the low side for this review, but things were not really exciting at this visit. There are many restaurants in the Nyhavn area, and some being quite 'touristy' at times. This one is more 'genuine' though, serving regular Danish...More

It was my second time tasting the day menu and everything was very good. The atmosphere was very warm, the food was very tasteful, the staff was very kind and friendly and the prices normal related to Denmark.

Being able to sit outside for lunch on Nyhavn in April was a joy. We are glad we came here as the food and service were both really good. We enjoyed delicious food, beer and akvavit.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere inside at winter with fire in the fireplaces. At summertime you can enjoy the traffic around and in the canal. The waiters are nice and very helpful.

Typical place in a touristic district where you can eat some of special and typical danish dishes for a good price ! The herrings are very good and you have to try Christmas Aquavit (a bit strong). Good and quiet place.
