Caphorn is a restaurant located in Nyhavn, in the center of Copenhagen. We came here the last day of the year and we could eat at 15h more or less a fantastic lunch without paying a large amount of money. Here we tasted a cod carpaccio (normal), artichoke soup with trufle (incredible! Fantastic! In fact, we ordered the same dish... More

We had a lovely very long lunch here. The food was delicious - especially the mixed smorgersbord - they also catered well for a child with gluten and milk allergies. A great wine selection and the staff were extremely friendly/attentive and the surroundings very comfortable with a lovely clientele. Slightly more expensive than some of the other restaurants in Nyhavn... More

This is some of the best food and service I have received in quite some time, not just in Denmark, but worldwide. I was hesitant about this restaurant because it was on the touristy Nyhaven, but I was quite surprised with the quality and service. I had the three course prix fix menu, which consisted of raw Danish salmon, lamb... More

Drawn to this place by the fireplace on a blustery winter afternoon. Very cozy and friendly. Herring and smorrebrod deemed authentic by our Danish host. A wonderful find!

In this incredibly cosy location, with its little fireplace on the second floor, I was blessed to enjoy the best lamb steak I ever got. Simply delicious. And the service... impeccable. Really worth the while!

Absolutely excellent New Years Eve meal, best venison and lobster we have ever had . Very good service from all the staff. In Copenhagen for 4 nights and we went again 2 nights later - food and service (and atmosphere) just as good. Only minus is that with a small menu (that's no problem) the menu was nearly identical to... More

This place is always busy but we managed to get a table for a late lunch. I would suggest booking in advance to avoid missing out. Great food at normal prices for Copenhagen. Was a little cramped for space but that didn't matter to us as the place has a warm cosy atmosphere. Service was good too.

Stylish and romantic (candles in the evening, oh my!) restaurant. Waitresses were friendly and well organized, no complains to service. There is no wide choice for evening meals, but you can choose between cod/duck/beef. Duck was great!

Had amazing meal on New Years Eve. Family of 5, we wished for a special evening and we certainly experienced this here. We had the 5 course set menu, with lobster, cod, venison, cheeses and desserts. All served beautifully and cooked to perfection. Staff were very busy, but highly attentive and nothing was too much trouble. I required Gluten Free... More

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.
