This restaurant is near Nyhavn, so it's good to have lunch before boat tour. The atmosphere, staff, food, everything was just great. The price is a little high, but I think it's worth.

In Store Strandstraede, only a stone's throw from the wonderful Nyhavn, you will find a true gem in Restaurant Zeleste. In the warm months of the year the charming atrium is open and during the colder months, guests can sit inside and enjoy Zeleste's cosy atmosphere. Zeleste's specialty is fish and shellfish such as succulent lobsters and fish from the Nordic seas. Zeleste also serves the finest beef and during the hunting season also wild duck, wild boar and deer from the vast Swedish forests. The menu is adjusted according to the seasonal offerings of fresh produce.
