Stopped here for a light lunch. There were so many places to choose from. We shared a chicken sandwich - tasty enough. The waiter was really grumpy-not rude but not friendly. Service was fast enough. No wifi- bit surprising. Good spot for people watching.

Food was plain for the price. Service left much to be desired. Better off picking up a sandwich or something quick elsewhere unless you're just looking for a place to sit inside.

A nice place to eat with friends, you must try the lobster soup. The prices are normal, The restaurant is in a tourist area.

This is one of the few restaurants in Nyhavn that serves mainly beef, most others offer primarily seafood. Good meal, service and a view that is priceless.

Below average food for above average price. The potato was not boiled, the fish was overfried... menza style food../

Well, overpriced as almost everything in this fine city. I simply don't get it to pay almost 25euros for a burger and a soda. And believe me the dish was below average. The only advantage? Location

I was passing during lunch and the sun was shining so I sat down to eat. The shrimp sandwich and the beer was good. The service was ok as well.

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
