Small, very informal restaurant. Seems to be popular among local people. I was there on Monday for dinner and it was pretty busy. Short menu and wine list. However food was delicious. I had a fish of the day - cod with vegetables and nuts - excellent. Restaurant highly recommneded.

Turned up a little early for the a la carte menu (which starts at 5pm) but was made very welcome by the staff, who settled me into a cozy, candlelit, corner table with a glass of wine until service started. This place is deceptively large with lots of nooks and crannies both downstairs and up. There is also a little... More

We visited as three couples for a farewell lunch as this was our last lunch opportunity in CPH. Zeleste is a quaint resto just off the Nyhavn and we were seated in a cosy room with views of the courtyard where an open wood fire was burning. We chose for a number of sandwich type dishes that were truly wonderfully... More

We chose the half lobster - not the cjeapest choice - and expected something very delicious but it was much too cold taken directly from the fridge! What a pity. The wine and cheese was great - and the French atmosphere.l,lllll

Thank you! This was a delight. We were 2 couples who needed an unhurried lunch with unobtrusive service as we wanted to matter! Not much choice in menu today as it is as New Year's Day but good quality and reasonable prices. Duck sandwich was awesome and the peanut blind or delicious. Great friendly accommodating service. We'll be back.

Beautifully presented and excellent quality food in smart ambiance.Almost as good as food I've had in Michelin-starred restaurants. Service very attentive if somewhat obsequious at times! And not cheap... but you get what you pay for!

Trovato per caso, perchè cercavamo qualcosa a Nyhavn (vicino al nostro alloggio), abbiamo letto alcune recensioni e prenotato on line dall'Italia. Accoglienza calorosa, ambiente confortevole e di grande fascino. Ottima cucina per nulla banale. Consigliatissimo. 262/5000 We found it by accident (a lucky accident) because we were looking on the web for something in Nyhavn (close to our accommodation), we... More

We decided to book based on the menu and it is very good. The selection of food choices is great. Probably not the cheapest in the area. Be aware of the offer of champagne when you sit down it is not on the house! The staff are extremely attentive and pleasant. Worth a visit but take a credit card.
