Food was okay, pina colada coctail awful, cleanlyness not good, service okay but waiter very pushy when charging, wanted 10% tip (and I was too late or too confused to say anything, service is supposed to be included in Denmark) but took 15% tip off my card.

Good restaurant, nice food. A perfect place for a nice lunch or dinner. We had a very nice and friendly waiter named Bruce, he made our stay one you will not forget. We had pasta and a burrito.

Food quality isn't good enough for decent restaurant standard. Apart from that, management and waiter staff and ill mannered. They have bad attitude problem. They don't care about customers and would argue with with till their last breath. Be ready to get pissed if you plan on going to this restaurant. I would not suggest anyone going their.

Our family was looking for some meat and fries. Nova came on our way and we had a good meal. Portions were big enough, quality was ok and we had a good meal together. Kids had a large burger and we had steak. Good experience but with everything on offer in Copenhagen, we will try other places before we will... More

We had a family lunch, and all enjoyed. We were served by a very energetic host, a great guy from our region, with strong opinions and a big heart, who was able to find flexible solution to our food limitations. All in all, a great experience!

Enjoyed the tasty chicken fajitas and loved every mouthful. Lots of extras to load up your fajitas! Good menu selection of meat and fish dishes but good Mexican selection too. Great friendly service and lovely cosy feel to the whole restaurant which is below street level. Very satisfying and Bruce our waiter was superb! Worth seeking out off the main... More

Nova er en helt ny konceptrestaurant i indre København. Efter at have set på mange restauranters koncepter rundt om i verden har vi valgt at fusionere to køkkener, som begge er meget populære i Danmark, nemlig det italienske og det japanske.Nova betyder stjerne på latin – og det betyder ”nyt”. Vi har valgt navnet Nova, fordi det er nemt at udtale og fordi det er nyt at fusionere det japanske og det italienske køkken. På Nova kan man både spise sushi og sticks, hjemmelavet pasta, og lækre kød- og fiskeretter. Der er også burgere, salater og sandwich – alt sammen lavet med friske råvarer.Restauranten, som ligger i en fredet bygning overfor Vor Frue Kirke, er nyistandsat fra top til tå med lækre materialer som Galaxy granit. De gamle mure er sandblæste til et råt men stadig hyggeligt look, som respekterer husets gamle historie. Der er brugt tid og ressourcer på at indrette restauranten smukt og renovere bygningen både indvendigt og udvendigt.Køkkenet er åbent og fra hele restauranten kan man følge med i kokkenes arbejde. Har du lyst til at kigge med, når sushikokken tilbereder de lækre ruller, kan du sidde helt oppe i den flotte bar rundt om køkkenet. Der er også masser af højborde med barstole og selvfølgelig også almindelige, pænt opdækkede borde.

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.
