Stopped at Skagen for our lunch and a beer or 3 just because we found a free table. Had a fish fillet smørrebrød each and they were nice. Friendly service. Nice to just sit and watch the world go by.

We were there at a quiet time of the day, but the waiters did NOT seem happy to have customers. They were very rude and made the visit a very unpleasant experience. The food was ok.

We ordered 2 skagen beers, a glass of wine, expensive water and when I went to get an ice cream from a delicious store he demanded me to not eat the ice cream in the table. Oh well, no tip for rude waiters.

We had a veal and a fish main course and one dessert and the food was nicely cooked and flavoured and presented slightly more artistically than the other meals we had in the area. We got the feeling that they were trying to be a little more upmarket than the surrounding restaurants and although we didn't ask the waiter thoughtfully... More

Although as noted in several other reviews the service is not the greatest, but hey, you are on vacation and there for the Nyhavn Canal experience and ambience. Would recommend the Smorrebrod platter accompanied by a couple of Aperol Spritz to set the mood. Then follow-up with a delicious bowel of ice cream.

A fantastic place to go for seafood and with a lovely setting in the centre of Nyhavn, on the expensive side but not extortionately priced at all. Definitely worth a look.

One of many typical restaurants in Nyhavn. Had the herring buffet, very danish but nothing special, not too expensive for the area but the service was very freindly and helpful.

Very beautiful restaurant, the food was very good with a classical danish presentation. The quantity of the plates was fine and the quality too. They was kindly and the ambience near the river, with tourists, sheeps is very beautiful. I suggest the zone and the restaurant.
