We went for a family lunch with our 2 kids 15+21 years, and experienced good service from the staff. The lunch was decent, but nothing extraordinary. Price was ok for the location. Wouldn't say ''I'll never come again'', as the location/room was nice and cozy.

We ate here on a Friday night--I made a reservation earlier in the week and was glad I did, as the restaurant was quite full later into the evening. My husband had the fish soup specialty and I enjoyed 1/2 a lobster. It was all very delicious, with extremely friendly and attentive wait staff. After dinner, we had coffee and... More

I arrived hungry in Aarhus and wanted to get some good food in the evening. I was walking through the center of Aarhus and while some restaurants had closed the kitchen Mefisto was still open. I chose the 4 course menu suggested by the chef including the wine pairing. The service was very nice and friendly and the food was... More

This is a GREAT restaurant that I have eaten at time and time again! A great selection of food for a very affordable price (80 - 130DKK) Approx. $16-$26CAD. With a great location close to downtown, this restaurant has a cosy/casual atmosphere and a cute outdoor space when the weather is nice. They also have menus in both Danish and... More

Personal atmosphere and excellent food in the Latin quarter of Aarhus. Possibly a bit more pricey than the surrounding area, but the food is definitely worth it. Lunch is great, dinner even better. French food with lobster as a speciality (Tuesdays are lobster days). Would I go back? Absolutely
