I went here with my partner to the chill summer and they provide really good drinks and has a great atmosphere due to music being played close by some independent artists as well as its closeness to the harbor. It's a very touristy place where one should bring friends and family to see what Denmark is all about.

Having tried and failed to get a table at one of the top recommended restaurants in copenhagen, we took a recommendation from the hotel, and just hoped for the best. It turned out to be a great choice! Enthusiastically greeted and looked after throughout, we had wonderful food, including lobster starter and kronhjort/stag with perfect wine, all at a reasonable...

Very cosy and easy going restaurant. Food was 6/10, service 8/10, but the ambiance was very warm and hygge. Moderate price level.

Arrived late in the evening, and we were able to get a table and order food even though they were closing within an hour. The staff was very friendly, and the atmosphere in the restaurant was warm and cosy. But the food was only average. The meat was chewy, but the vegetables was ok. Don't think I would go back....

We had a group dinner here last saturday. Even though it was busy, service was fast and they were quite friendly. The food was excellent, could not try their famous "Burger" as its only lunch time but the fish and the veggies were superb!

Cap Horn is situated in the historic district af Nyhavn in the centre of Copenhagen, where sailors and a very mixed clientele met to drink and brawl some decades ago. Today the area sports many restaurants of different quality, but one place shines like a star, that is Cap Horn. The restaurant today is a mixture of very cosy ambience... More

Have been several times to Cap Horn - it's my favourite brunch location in Copenhagen. This visit again lived up to expectations. Super Sunday brunch. Nice selection of tasty morsels and a superb latte! The roaring fire and gentle jazz duo add to the ambience. Okay - so not huge portions, and not the cheapest - but a fabulous place... More

Armed with a rough guide we were advised that this is one of the best along Nyhaven. I can't say what any of the other restaurants are like, but I can say this is great. A cold evening we arrived reasonably early in the evening. The waitresses are all extremely helpful and very professional. The food is made almost exclusively... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
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.
