This restaurant requires adult supervision. The service was poor, at one point after we finished our waiter had disappeared from the facility for an extended period. Finally we we able to attract another waiter who said our waiter was in the restroom. The door to the restroom was just across from our table and he was not in there. The... More

Located in Nyhavn and a very cosy interior and good food. It got very noisy and almost impossible to hear each other through dinner, I think because of the stone floor and no carpets. The staff seemed a bit busy and unfocused. The location is idyllic!

Nyhavn is the most touristy area in Copenhagen, it has many restaurants so difficult to make up your mind as the all look alike. We chose the Ved Kajen. We sat outside (even though it was a little cold ) but the waiters would not switch on the heaters. The service was extremely slow. The food was quite tasty. We... More

waiters were too busy flirting with each other to worry about their tables. one girl was trying to learn spanish and giggling instead of taking tables outside. many people came in visibly annoyed with how long their bill was taking. all servers on their phones the whole time, won't return.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner in the mostly candlelit restaurant. Nice interior with open kitchen. As starter had Carpaccio on a light bed of mustard - delicious. For main course a beef entrecôte with slightly bitter bernaise sauce (the way it has to be!) cooked to perfection and delightfully tender. The young server were attentive without in any way bein intrusive.... More

If you have the possibility, avoid this restaurant. The food is ok, but they have a serious problem with the staff. Probally a management problem, but i have never experienced more uninterested and unfriendly staff. No engagement, no smiles, no service, no nothing. How are they able to work with this state of mind. Choose another restaurant if you want... More

Stopped for a snack but the salmon sandwich and side was a meal and a half. Good recommended beers from waiter. Perfect choice! Lovely inside ambience. Outside area too. In very popular area but a standout place for lunch and dinner and a coffee break.

Nyhavn has dozens of restaurants with basically the same menu so it was just a guess to choose this one. However, it was a lucky guess! We ate mussels and lobster soup, they were delicious. They were pricey, but then everything in Nyhavn is. All in all, we don't regret coming here and we would warmly recommend this place.

Nyhavn is THE place to visit for tourists in Copenhagen and this restaurant reflects that. It is nice and cosy, you can sit outside or inside, but the food is very average and not particularly cheap. I had veal, but the meat was tough and over-cooked, with tiny potato boats fried in old oil. One of my colleagues had fish... More

I wasn't expecting too much from this based on the price and after reading some older reviews but we were blown away by it! I would have eaten there every day for the rest of the holiday it was so good. Nice cozy restaurant and the food was fantastic, we had steak, sausages, chops, salmon and an excellent salad bar...

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.
