Stopped at Skagen for our lunch and a beer or 3 just because we found a free table. Had a fish fillet smørrebrød each and they were nice. Friendly service. Nice to just sit and watch the world go by.

A fantastic place to go for seafood and with a lovely setting in the centre of Nyhavn, on the expensive side but not extortionately priced at all. Definitely worth a look.
