We stopped by this restaurant for a light lunch and although the temperature was cold we were able to sit outside under the electric heaters. Service was prompt and friendly. We had egg and shrimps on rye bread and shrimps on white bread and both were fresh and tasty - perfect for a light lunch. The glogg we had with... More

This Restaurant sits in Nyhaven amongst a host of other restaurants (none of them have wifi for some reason). Simple but good menu and the most wonderful Luxury Smorgasbord I have every had. A great table in the window, to watch the canal, lovely service and a £30 bill for a hefty main course, glass of wine an a bottle... More

Admittedly, we visited this restaurant out of main season and there were only a few other people in there, so the staff were very attentive, but we had a 3-course meal which rates as one of the best we have ever experienced. The food was perfectly cooked with high quality cuts of meat and portions which were just right, considering... More

My husband and I wanted to order something from their menu on display outside of the restaurant, but when we asked for that menu, we were told that it was dinner only (we got our menu after waiting for some time -- other equally busy restaurants in the area almost immediately brought us menus in the past). This was fine... More

This is one of the many restaurants along the row that makes up Nyhavn, one of the most famous places in Copenhagen, featured on many postcards. The service was fine, the food pretty good. I had a foie gras appetizer, nothing fancy but solidly done, and then a main course portion of the fish soup, which was good, if a... More

This restaurant is in Nyavn, one of the coolest places in town. The restaurant has tables outside and the whole atmosphere is lovely. Food is ok. The real problem of this place is the service and the staff. We were treated awful! It was a problem to get a table sorted, then a problem to order and even to pay.... More

Nyhavn in Copenhagen is a nice place to sit down in the summer evening. Gasten & Galionen is a good place to have a meal while you watch the people all around. The food is ok, the price is medium and the service is quick.

Incredible location along the canal in Nyhaven. Very picturesque with houseboats and sailing vessels lining the canal, and colorful homes restaurants and shops along the banks. We both enjoyed the shellfish special loaded with oysters, scallops, mussels, and enormous whole shrimp in a very savory broth. Perfect location, perfect meal, and great service. Wonderful way to end the day.

Loved our time at Gasten & Galionen last night. We were thrilled with our food, and very pleased with the attentiveness the staff showed. I don't know that you could go wrong with anything on their menu; we started with the fish soup, muscles & fries, and then I had the surf & turf, my husband the shellfish plate. For... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food excellent. Started with fish soup and baked cheese salad. Main courses was the red chili and basil stuffed salmon. I really liked the small potatoes. We ate inside to avoid the sidewalk crowd on a hot (well Denmark hot) day in June and it was still comfortable. The bill a... More

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.
