REAL food....!

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... read 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

We came here because of the good reviews here om TripAdvisor. However the food was never more than acceptable. It seemed that it was reheated rather than freshly prepared. The main ingredient in the dessert was peach from the can.

Food at Den Rustikke is fantastic. My wife and I've been a few times and have had the set menu and the rib-eye steaks. Food is cooked to perfection with grounded creativity. Tastes are often «earthy» and portions are usually plentiful providing high value for money. Atmosphere is café-like, and acoustics can sometimes be somewhat tiring. To counter this I... More
