“Really rude service”
Review of Pigen og somanden - CLOSED

Pigen og somanden

Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Neighborhood: Indre By (Inner City)
Description: The menu in Pigen og somanden offers a selection of simple dishes inspired by the Danish and French cuisines - with a special focus on seafood. The chefs take great pride in using the very best of the seasonal produce. The decor in Pigen og somanden has many maritime details telling a tale of a time when Nyhavn was a bustling port and the center of Copenhagen's ship traffic. In the spring and summer months guests can enjoy the lively Nyhavn atmosphere on the restaurant's terrace.Pigen og somanden used to be Cafe Texas, where guests were encouraged to hand over their six shooter when entering the bar. Pigen og somanden is especially known for housing the internationally renowned tattoo artist Tato-Jack - who had his heyday in the 1950's and 1960's. Since 2007 the historic building has housed the restaurant Nyhavn 37.

“Really rude service”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We wanted to go in to warm up for a while and have a cup of coffee. The waitress was extremely rude, she stood by our table the entire time we were here and practically threw us out the minute we had drank our coffee. For their expensive prices you could expect a bit friendlier service.

“Cozy place and good food- the service could have been better”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is a really charming place at Nyhavn. The food was very good as well and the price pretty affordable for the location of the restaurant.

The only thing that would have made our visit better was more welcoming service. Service people who don't smile at all are really not that a pleasant addition. Still - no magor errors from the service staff though.

“What a beauty.”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I researched for more than a couple of hours online to find this place in Nyhavn .

It is excellent for a cosy evening meal with excellent food and service.

There's no big deal about coffee, they give you a coffee plunger that will do about 6 cups. Leave what you don't want.

Good for repeat visits.

“good service, pretty good food”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

In the tourist-filled Nyhavn this is not one of the many tourist traps: the food is more than decent and the service is excellent. I had a remarkable brunch, helped y a wonderful sun.
