Lunch in cosy place

We have been at Mefisto for lunch for a birthday. They were very timely with the booking and even put a little Danish flag on the table (Danish tradition). We really like the atmosphere of the place, even at lunch it is full and welcoming. We ordered brunch. It came served on a nice wooden board... read more

This bistro is tucked away in the old part of Aarhus and after eating there twice I wouldn't hestitate going back. They have a fairly small but well thought out menu with food in the typical French inspired modern European category - but with lobster as a speciality. Prices are midrange but very reasonable especially if you take the menu... More

Enjoyed dinner here after a day-trip to Aarhus. Found it an excellent blend of good food (loved my duck breast - very seasonal!), neat wine list, and excellent service! Could see scenarios when the restaurant would be too crowded if all of the tables were full, but since that wasn't the case on the Sunday evening we were there, this... More

Totally cozy atmosphere, staff extremely accommodating and friendly, perfect for a lunch brunch experience, Food all round was presented with thought and tasted good. Summerbird cakes (that we already tasted from the delicatessen opposite) also on the menu...worth a try (raspberry and cinnamon:)

A delicious aroma greeted us as we entered the cosy little café located in the Latin Quarter. I have been meaning to go there for a while because I’d heard so many great things about the food, and finally went. Mefisto is known for their fish and lobster dishes, which I love, so I was really excited to try some.... More

we had a good and well balanced menu and the recommend wines were good. Staff were very friendly and informative. Sadly the meat was overcooked. But the rest of the menu was exelent.

The 'Latin Quarter' of Aarhus is full of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops and has a great atmosphere especially when its term time at the University. We liked the look of Mefisto and booked a table for dinner even though they explained that they had a large party of local lawyers that evening in the main dining area. They said... More

We had walked by the street and randomly chosen this restaurant. Food and staffs are nice and the price is fair too!! We were too lucky because it was a day with extended working hours in Aarhus. Although they needed to work till late, they were still having smile on their faces.

The food, wine, and service was excellent! Try the four course meal with the pre-selected wines. The cheese plate was great. I will definitely be coming back to this restaurant.
