Description: Hyttefadet (old Danish word for "keg of fish") is an authentic and small restaurant in the middle of the old and romantic Nyhavn. Outdoor lunch and dinner service from March to October and live music every Thursday to Saturday from 10 PM. The front of the building is decorated with a robe painted by the famous Danish painter Asger Jorn, forming the word Hyttefadet. The history of Hyttefadet goes all the way back to 1736 where the building were hosting its first pub guests.

Stopped for dinner and had a wonderful time. The food was great and we had six of us so we tried a variety of food. Everything was good. The service was excellent. i'd definitely eat here again.

Great location! Staff was great. Had a great table, very nice cold drinks, delicious food, cheeses, added a rum that was poured over the cheeses. Delicious. Keep in mind, it takes a while to get your food. Great place to sit and take in the view!

Very nice place to eat, we had salmon steak and danish meatballs, both very tasteful. Service very good, not so quick but ok. Great location, we really enjoyed this restaurant. Good choice of wines, too.

This was recommended to us as the best place to eat on Nyhavn, so we booked and were delighted to be greeted with a good marked table at a time when the restaurant was full.
The setting is superb, the atmosphere great and the menu short and simple with local dishes, which were excellent. Good beers, too, and very friendly service.
However, there was a problem in that for one of our meals, the waitress had failed to pass the order through to the kitchen. At least she owned up and gave us a complimentary glass of wine; but it still meant we had to eat 'in series' rather than at the same time. On a relaxed evening out, that was not as important as it might have been, but did flaw what was otherwise a positive experience

Hello Henry B

I am sorry to hear that the waiter had made a mistake. But i am happy to hear that you noticed and enjoyed the positive things arround. i hope that you will see this as a human mistake and that you will return, to give us another shot, to show our full potential. I have informed the staff that if this should happen again, we will offer the guests to have a new set of both dish as fast as possible.

Best regards

Nice pub by the Nyhavn, where customers can seat outside when the weather allows it. Good food and friendly service, that is what a customer needs ;-). Few meals available (typical danish-pub). Not so many beer-choices.

As usual this review is based on food quality, staff attitude, location, value for money and atmosphere.
