Simple but very good!

Excellent food at very reasonable prices. This place has a very short menu, but the food is very tasty and made with good ingredients. Service was a little on the poor side. Not a lot of attention from the server. However, all in all highly recommended.

They were not flexible in choice of a table and we had to sit in the hallway more or less. The other tables in the room were not occupied !!! food is nothing special, though cheap for Denmark. I had carrots cooked from the frozen you can get in supermarket which was a diappoitment of the evening. Definitely will not... More

Perfect, nice solid cooking with a good sense of taste and open space for looks in the kitchen. We had the offered menu, Tuna with fennel salad or gratinated Goatcheese with Crutons as starter, calf rump or hake fried on skin with different veggies. The starters were very nice (could be a bit more tuna and cheese though) but it's... More

We just popped in at this quaint place after passing by yesterday. Looking for som game, we were nicely surprised by today's 3-course special; coq au vin and some excellent fish we had never heard of (that coming from a former Norwegian commercial fisher). In sum, the taste of everything, from the quail egg served in wolf fish caviar, to... More

The food was very nice, maybe a little on the heavy side for my taste. The place is very small - but perfect for a romantic dinner.

3 well tasting dishes for 180 kr. is nothing to complain about. Nice honest food. Staff friendly although a bit forgetful on the busy night we were there. Recommended for a well tasting meal that doesn't empty your pocket!

This is a small, cosy restaurant with a short menu. There are a few courses to choose from each day, and with a three course dinner for under 200 kr, this is really cheap for Århus. And it was very tasty. The service was very good too, I was with a group, and there was no fuss about letting us... More

This place offers really good value for money. Their menu is limited, but really, really well made, their wine selection is very limited as well, and you shouldn't expect something that will awe you, but again - at the price point it is really good value. The atmosphere is nice and laid back, the staff is offering good service, and... More
