“Awesome $45 burger...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

The burgers here are awesome! The wait staff is incredibly friendly. They offered me tastes of draft beer before I ordered one. The atmosphere was really cozy. It's hard to write a neutral review of CPH restaurants in light of the cost of things, however... :(

“Small, atmospheric and good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Could not fault the food, my wife had Pork which was 3/4" thick and very tasty, I had the diced beef which was also substantial and both served with fresh vegatables and fries. Very busy as you would expect in Nyhavn but never felt rushed.

“god sandwiches”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

The service is OK and the sandwiches are good - but one should keep in mind that it is difficult to prepare a bad smorrenbrod. The place is small and not very comfortable and the toilets are a tad on the wild side...

“Copenhagen luncheon at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Of the dozens of crowded restaurants with patios lining "Nyhavn" the old Copenhagen harbour front to choose from, we decided to have our lunch at "Hyttefadet."
Once seated on the sunny patio the owner, who was busy working the tables with a genuine and warm hospitality, recommended the house platter which was just fabulous!
The platter AKA "make your own open-faced Danish sandwiches" arrived beautifully garnished with all the customary trimmings and included generous portions of delicious marinated herring, fried fillet of sole, rare roast beef, tasty chicken salad and brie; all which still evokes mouth-watering memories.
After our wonderful Copenhagen luncheon on Hyttefadet's sunny patio we complimented the owner and suggested that he should start a "Hospitality School" for fellow restaurateurs and train same in "hands-on" customer care in which this host most definitely excelled!
Finally, it should be noted that the indoors of this great little restaurant was intimately cosy if the weather shouldn't cooperate.
Highly recommended!

“Excellent livers,restaurant nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We had a lunch in very busy and overcrowded Nyhavn.

Restaurants are nothing special here and too pricey, but the dish was ok. My wife had a smoked salmon which was good, I had first platter in their menu (with danish style liver) which was just excellent.
