Very good food, slightly expensive, can recommend this to anyone traveling as a couple. Romantic interior, and it's close to the ocean.

On Nyhaven but opposite the tourist trap street (on the other side of the canal), this little Danish kitchen is precious. Ate a late lunch and absolutely delighted! Mostly local guests at the restaurant, service very friendly also. Will definitely return!

Had a lovely lunch today. The lunch platter for my husband was excellent! I am allergic to gluten and egg, but the restaurant made special dishes for me very quickly and they were all delicious. From now on this is my favourite restaurant in Nyhavn.

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
