We were five friends eating in Galatea kroen between Christmas and New Year 2016. The pub is nice, with lots of charm and nick nacks everywhere. We got a nice big table and sat very undisturbed, so we were really happy with our choice of venue so far and looked forward to the evening ahead. The waitress was friendly, and... More

The atmosphere of this place is absolutely lovely, and the rice taffel is excellent. And the music selection perfect.

Galathea Kroen is a small restaurant which looks like a museum. The ship crossed many seas and in the restaurant you can see things brought back from far away travels. The menu/food is simple but very good. We enjoyed a delicious "rijsttafel". Friendly (new) owners and they play great music, some 30's and 40's music and jazz. Highly recommended.

Ethnographica from all over the world decorate this restaurant, all of which were collected by the restaurant founder in the 1950ies. Food is old school Danish cuisine plus Indonesian Rijs Tafel, a recipe brought back from Indonesia by the founder. Staff is friendly, music is usually soft jazz from vinyl, so what's not to like? Best recommandation I guess is... More

This restaurant is moore like a traditional old danish pub - in a VERY untraditional way! The story goes that the place was founded (and still owned) by one of the sailors that took part in the second expedition around the world (1950) by ship, to explore and map the various cultures they would encounter. The whole place is decorated... More

After trying to get into several restaurants in the area and finding they were closed or needed reservations, my wife and I decided to take a chance on Galathea-kroen... and we are glad we did. The food was a strange mixture of Asian and Danish but was very good. The staff very friendly to Americans, the jazz music fantastic and... More

Curious place, nice pub, good atmosphere, food a bit odd. We were offered a Rijsttafel, which we decided to take. Something I have eaten many times. It consists of rice and a whole range of Indonesian dishes and condiments like atjars and sambals. Here it consists of rice, Asian pork stew, bowls of fruit, salted peanuts, and a whole range...

A very low fi- not dress-up/ fancy at all, but a place to be remembered and a must visit. Vinyl- jazz records, great curry, a theatrical and cosy( and charmingly shabby ) enviroment. Beer& relaxed good times. Good conversations almost automatically turn up.

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.
