A fantastic meal this evening in Pihlkjaer. Faultless food, service, atmosphere and price. The team waiting on at the tables had an excellent knowledge of the food as it was being served. I'm advised that the menu changes regularly and I can confirm the choices are limited only do not let this out you off in any way. The choices... More

Table decoration made from gigantic erect gurkins looking like gigant phalloses on every table, make people compare :'mine is bigger than yours', is that really what you want? All menus and the whole website in Danish only: embarrassing to be so blatantly xenophobic. Food was ok, pretentious trying-to-hard-to-be-French-but-not-succeeding. Taste ok, but very small portions. You have a choice of meat... More

Love this restaurant and can't wait to go back. The place has an unpretentious air and absolutely delicious fish. Every course was perfection and the service was excellent. A peek at the kitchen showed that it was very simple - long stainless steel counters. All of the attention was lavished on the food. The restaurant itself is understated and lovely.

After reading most of the other reviews and considering Pihlkjaer is the second highest rated restaurant in Aarhus, I had pretty high expectations which they failed to meet, I'm afraid. Let's start with the atmosphere. I'm not sure if this is the owners' intention, but if they tried to make the place feel like you're visiting friends or family and... More

The reviews were spot on ... Pihlkjaer is truly a gem in this wonderful city. Tucked away in a tiny courtyard in the Latin Quarter of town, the walk was all worth it. Warm and cosy interiors greeted us when we entered from the freezing cold, closely followed by the warm smile of the waitress. She was patient and explained... More

Attracted to this (mainly) fish restaurant by the reviews seen, I was not disappointed. Some friends and I went for dinner in Pihlkjaer and enjoyed a great meal out, that was beautifully presented and tasted deliciously. Although the restaurant was full and the staff under some pressure, they took the time to explain the various components of the fixed starter... More

Dined last week in this restaurant that is very well sought. It is recommended to book your table in advance ! Surroundings are relaxed nice and cosy. Don't let the add placement in a back-yard discourage you. The food is by card or menu of the days displayed on a green board that the waitress is showing to you at... More

The restaurant is tucked away at the end of a courtyard so is easy to miss. The menu is very simple with 2 or 3 options per course. Whilst the restaurant specializes in Fish, which is cooked supremely well, there are normally a couple of meat choices for those who want's something else. The service is very attentive and friendly... More
