I can recommend the lobster. Service more relaxed than elsewhere in Copenhagen. Two of us shared one desert and one cheese board with a fabulous large glass of port each-well worth it.

We dropped in for dinner one night and we're not sorry we did! I recommend the plaice or if it is on, the venison. Both were delicious. Service is delightful and the courtyard is a lovely spot on a clear Copenhagen night. Highly recommended.

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.
