Had lunch here with friends and found this to be a really nice eatery with great service. Lunch menu was good, the food plentiful and really tasty. Waitresses were friendly and the service was fast and efficient. Sat outside on a sunny day and enjoyed the lovely location by the water and the boats.

Running late, I was looking for a quick lunch, I walked in to Ved Kajen and found a table in the corner. As I took my seat, I was given a menu and drinks list. I decided on the hummersuppe and the fisketallerken. After ordering, the waitress returned with crusty bread and sparking water. A short time later, I had... More

Restaurant is on the busy canal on nynhavn, which is absolutely beautiful. The canal is bustling with restaurants and bars, but this one caught out eye. We both had a chicken club sandwich which comes with a homemade mayo curry sauce which is absolutely divine. Didn't have the best welcome ever, but expected due to how busy the waitress was....

Nyhaven is a very pleasant area to dine in. The restaurants in the strip offer a diversity of menus. We were quite pleased with quite a number of establishments but this restaurant seemed to be run by amateurs. The waiting staff were very aloof and the place operated a bit like a processing plant. The ambience was pleasant but attentiveness... More

After an afternoon stroll around Nyhavn area, we decided to grab a drink and small bite and came across this restaurant. We ordered their so called 'special' menu, mussels and were quite disappointed as it was so bland and the mussels were so small. The service was appalling as the waitress doesn't seem to care that you want to order... More

This place is all about location. It's right in the middle, more or less, of the most touristy part of Nyhavn. I stopped in for lunch, right after taking the hour long canal tour, which deposited me almost directly in front of the restaurant. I ate lunch alone and felt quite comfortable there, by myself, as a single, non-Danish speaking... More

Went there for a bit late lunch on a Sunday. Nice spot right by the dock, but my God, that was slow service! Food was ok, but not that great. If I where you, I would just pass by it and choose another place by the dock. But hey, if you got time, take a seat and be prepared to... More

Haven't been to to Nyhaven since 1999 as a somewhat skinnier and slightly more budget conscientious traveller with my girlfriend now wife. We are staying around corner, were wandering down and this place is the third restaurant down the street - it had a few tables of middle + aged folks sitting around appearing to enjoy food and there was...

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.
