Fantastic food and nice service. I paid 185DKK for a 3 course dinner, which was really good! I recommend this restaurant to all of you who visit Aarhus!

Den Rustikke offers primarily French influenced cuisine and does it well. While the menu is small and entirely prix fixe we very much enjoyed our meal there. Portions are fair also. Our mains were a sensational poussin dish. Highly recommend.

We were a party of about 16 people and had all been in a workshop all day. The evening was a chance to mix business with pleasure and it worked really well, thanks to the welcoming atmosphere, very friendly, efficient service and excellent food at Den Rustikke. I had an outstanding home-made soup - different from any I've ever tasted,... More

My wife and I were looking for a good restaurant close to the center of Aarhus. We decided to try Den Rustikke which is located only about 200 m from the cathedral. For a starter both of us had sole with lentils and we must say that it was one the nicest fish dishes we have ever had. The main... More

We went out for a Sunday night meal and had such a good time here. Great quality food and the concept is really good. There is only one or two options on the menu and we noticed we had some quite seasonal food too. The main course (duet of veal) was fantastic and the desserts were wonderful. The staff were... More

This is definitely good food and a good atmosphere for the price. However, the menu is limited and for that reason seems very "safe" - when we were there the choices of main course were roast lamb with mashed potatoes or cod. A small number of choices done very well isn't a bad concept, but in a city with conservative... More

Brought a friend of mine to Den Rustikke for a special treat - she's usually into all you can eat for 7.99 €. We had the set menu, finishing with Gateau Marcel for her, and the cheese platter for me. For starters we had salmon with quail eggs. Many different taste sensations and definitely delicious. For our main course we... More

The food here was really great and the price is good too. The service was a little lacking but nothing to really complain about. Enjoyed our experience there.
