Good simple lunch

Booked this on the basis of TA reviews. We were not disappointed. We (4) all had the prawn, smoked salmon and place dish. The mayonnaise was with garlic not chilli, not an error in our book. House wine was more than acceptable and the overall cost was reasonable

A very nice restaurant. Good atmosphere, great food. Take care to get a table away from the centre of the restaurant as the room is quite small. A bit pricey for the quality - which is why it does not get a top grade. However, you are quite sure to leave satisfied.

Food was fine I just want to warn people who want to reserve a seat and think they will get a table in a beautiful Danish fish restaurant. Changes are you get a table outside in a tent. Red light, which makes any food look bad, because of the heaters. Windy. Seated side by side instead of opposite of your... More

Dear Janssen. Thank you for the review. I am very sorry to hear that there has been some miscommunication with your reservation. When that is said, I have to mention that almost everybody really enjoy to be seated in our covered and heated patio, when the Danish summer has been so rainy and cold. Kind regards Mefisto More

Dropped in here for lunch and had a very lovely meal. Way better than I thought possible and was pleasantly surprised. I had the asparagus omelette while my partner had the salmon and crayfish open sandwich. The omelette was perfectly cooked and came with a beautiful salad of very fresh ingredients including apple, radish and almonds. It just worked perfectly.... More

My wife and I and a friend stopped in for a lunch on a cruise day stop in Aarhus. The restaurant is very attractive and draws you in with a cozy interior. We found the food to be delicious and the service warm and friendly. A great stop in beautiful Aarhus!

Pleasant surroundings and service with good food. Wine list basic and perhaps overpriced save for the lower end.
