I was looking for somewhere for a family group on our first night at Nyhavn. I knew we'd be tired and hungry after the journey so didn't want anywhere too fancy - just some nourishing food in relaxing surroundings. PLUS there were two vegetarians in our party who needed feeding properly too! It's so hard to tell when researching from... More

The Irish coffee that café out was served with panache. A glass with sugar had brandy added, the coffee and left with a small pot of cream to add at leisure. The... More

We ate here based on reviews on Good Friday evening. The restaurant was busy but the service friendly and efficient. The fish roe starter was nicely presented and great tasting. We both ate the slightly salted cod on asparagus, sprouting and peas. It was well cooked and a very nice meal.

The food was just OK. The service was just OK. That about sums it up. We were staying nearby and hope to find some Danish food.we were late to make reservations so some of the more authentic, higher rated places around were all full. Horn is nicely appointed in a nautical theme and cozy. The chairs were last upholstered in... More

The restaurant is right on the canal in a row of restaurants. My friend is vegan and was able to find a good dish on the menu. I had soup which was excellent. The service was very good. The portion size and the price was good too.

I visited Cap Horn for dinner on a Monday evening and was blown away. For a relatively cheap price - in comparison to many other restaurants in Copenhagen - of around 250 kroner (approx. £30), I enjoyed two sensational courses plus a delightful beer. In addition to the spectacularly good food, the service was perfect - attentive, informative and friendly... More

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.
