Located across the opera house, facing the sea, the theatre is a really impressive building. Unlike the opera house, it did give me the sense of coldness. Maybe the wooden outer walls give the structure a friendlier look and feel. I had a walk around...More

We passed this place on our segway tour and thought it looked really cool with the big glass facade windows. We went for lunch to have the traditional danish open sandwiches. The food itself was actually tasty, but the service just awful. The table next...More

This building is a very impressive modern addition to the Copenhagen water front, even if you don't attend a performance it is worth seeking it out for the restaurants and view We got a particularly good view from the canal boat tour we took

Nice traditional Danish lunch just out to the water. Good place for a business lunch. The only comments I'd like to make: service is slightly random. Eg all tables around ours got bread, we didn't. The service could have been more attentive.

We went here to have a drink & a rest, but we preferred what was on offer outside with the smaller vendors. This is quite an impressive building & has great views over the water. Carole : )
