Not the worst spot for dinner but I wouldn't be rushing back. The setting of Nyhavn is lovely but as a result of its tourist trap status you will find that prices go up and quality goes down. This restaurant gave us perfectly fine meals....More

Great meal and a few beers over New Year 2017. Just about managed to afford it as its a little more expensive than some bars but if you like quality, this may just be your spot.

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.

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
