One of the better places in the latin neighborhood, in Aarhus. They serve a lot of fish, lobster and things of that sort. So if you like great seafood, you should give it a try. I can recommend the traditional danish dish "stjerneskud" which means shooting star. The waiters are young and seem as part-time staff, but still have a... More

This adorable little restaurant was one of the highlights of our Baltic Sea tour. The main dishes are almost too beautiful eat. The main courses were incredible, but it was the desserts that made us speechless. It's a crime I live so far away or I would eat here a few times a month!

This was my second time at this restaurant so I tried it in winter time and in summer time. With the summer they open their small back garden which is so cozy! I just loved it! It's perfect for couples but for friends as well. I suggest you try the mussels soup: it is a dish to die for. If... More

Difficult to find very nice food in Denmark, that is my personal opinion. But this restaurant is different. They try to br inventiv and they succeed. They have good lobster. The staff is very very nice. I recommend anyway.

I passed in front of this restaurant one evening and its cozy and lively atmosphere caught my attention. I went to have dinner the following day and I had the most delicious "shooting star" ever accompanied by a great beer (Jacobsen: a real treat!). They have a good selection of wines too and if you want just a glass they'll... More

Chanced upon this bistro on a rainy afternoon wondering in the Latin quarter. Warm and cosy interior with a bustling atmosphere. Window seat excellent for people-watching Service was prompt and food came fast and was of good quality. Certainly worth a visit, especially for their famous brunch specials.
