In a peaceful corner of Copenhagen you can enjoy nice food, wine and service just next to one of the small channels in a small restaurant. On a sunny day you can sit outside on the terrasse. They have a fixed lunch with a nice price/quality ratio and the cook has just won the Danish championship, which is not that... More

We had booked a late lunch at 14. I got marvelous new fjordrejer (shrimps from the fjord) and my wife god some delicious great cod. The dishes are small so ordering two would be normal but this was not advised and unfortunately the kitchen closes at 15 so we barely managed to get a second dish. That too was extremely... More

A very attractive restaurant on the canal out of the way of the crowds around Nyhavn. The lunch menu was quite interesting with a lot of choices of local foods and the food was very good as was the beer and wine. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.

I've been here with a very large group of 30+ people for a company dinner and came away feeling that they did extremely well. We had a 3 course meal with two glasses of wine included and the total was 550DKK per person - which for the quality of the meal, taste, service and ambiance was really very good. The... More

Nice locale and staff, very friendly and competent. We had a nice 3 course meny with perfectly cooked fresh loin cut from cod, a tender juicy flat iron steak, and a nice blood orange flavoured derssert. Waitress recommended an excellent red Beaujolais that went nicely with both the cod and the steak. Would go back any time with lover, family,... More

Had our private company dinner at this restaurant. Since it's a private function we had a fixed 3 course menu, starts with a salad then followed by beef with beetroot as the main course and deserts. Food was alright and not too salty, as Danish cooking can be over salty for non Danish residents.

Not very far from the center of Copenhagen with a direct view to canal. The staff very friendly and eager to help you. The food very good (although portions not big enough) - French like dishes. A little bit expensive.

A party of four picked the menu of the day. In spite of the restaurant being pretty full, the waiters were present and attentive, I appreciate that a lot! Food was very, very good. New tastes and new ways of serving known dishes. Really tasty and well done. Only negative comment was the size of the portions. We asked for... More

A restaurant when it is best. French inspired restaurant with an innovative touch, but without being fancy. I have been to Kanalen many times and have never been disappointed. It is really a restaurant that you want to come back to again and again.

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighbourhood Profile
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By, you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century, and canals which are home to many boats and ships, some of which has been turned into restaurants or even serve as fully furnished homes. The best known attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free town” of residents who squat on a former military area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
