You just know this place is going to be expensive - location location location. However, we stopped off for a beer and an open sandwich - and were ok with it. The open sandwiches are enough for a light meal. The beer was just what...More

I had the plaice whereas my wife had the Moules Frites. The plaice was ok -- plenty of meat on the fish, well-cooked (perhaps a bit overdone -- I'm no expert on plaice) and the potatoes were ok. The Moules were great -- plenty of...More

This restaurant is located in Nyhavn where you can see the canal and boats, but I have to say that the menu was not very attractive. Almost everything was fried and light mails were scarce.

Nice place to have an outdoor lunch and watch the crowds passing by. Old house with service mainly outside (at least in the summer season). Typical Danish menu.

Super good fish and chips - a dish that is so often made (very) badly. A good choice on this strip of tourist restaurants that look exactly the same from the outside.

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

The menu in Pigen og somanden offers a selection of simple dishes inspired by the Danish and French cuisines - with a special focus on seafood. The chefs take great pride in using the very best of the seasonal produce. The decor in Pigen og somanden has many maritime details telling a tale of a time when Nyhavn was a bustling port and the center of Copenhagen's ship traffic. In the spring and summer months guests can enjoy the lively Nyhavn atmosphere on the restaurant's terrace.Pigen og somanden used to be Cafe Texas, where guests were encouraged to hand over their six shooter when entering the bar. Pigen og somanden is especially known for housing the internationally renowned tattoo artist Tato-Jack - who had his heyday in the 1950's and 1960's. Since 2007 the historic building has housed the restaurant Nyhavn 37.
