Location is on the main Nyhavn area with music and crowds of people. Interesting on one hand, but don't expect a quiet dinner. Service was fast and attentive. Mussels were good, but not the best we have eaten. We both had different fishes. The cod...More

In the famous Nyhavn area in Copenhagen, all restaurants, bars and cafes are adjacent to each other and difficult to choose from. Heering sounded traditional and had a couple of empty tables inside, as for Mediterranean people like us, it was too cold to sit...More

The restaurants in nyhavn have a very nice ambience. Food wasn't bad either especially their herring or fish. Just noticed you have to pay for tap water here where it's usually free in most countries.
