Danish in Nyhavn & the Royal Quarter

Image by Caroline Hadamitzky Lonely Planet

Found on the less-visited end of Nyhavn, Kompasset has a stylish interior that's sleeker than classic smørrebrød restaurants, and its delightful, somewhat modern, renditions of the traditional sandwich are creative and flavoursome. It's one of the rare places to serve smørrebrød in the evening, along with hot dishes. Service is attentive.

There's outdoor seating along the cobblestones with lovely views of Nyhavn.
