I had a really good lunch. Bread was fresh. The room is small so you sit very close. The waitress was very unexperienced. A bit disappointing. Had expected better service price and TripAdvisor score taken in to consideration.

The food was good and the environment as well, it is one of the nice Latin Quarter Restaurants in Aarhus. But service was really poor with very rude waitresses. We've been twice and both times I have to say we were kind of shocked with the arrogant attitude.

Small, artfully decorated restaurant with attentive waitstaff, and absolutely scrumptious fish dinners. We tried the fish soup (frothy with excellent, unusual flavor), the salmon (very fresh and flavorful), and the cod with shrimp (also fantastic). We enjoyed everything about the place--good wine, not too pricey, just right!

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 walked in off the street in search of a quick lunch. There was a group of us and we didn't reserve in advance. We were seated within minutes by friendly and very polite staff. The restaurant filled very quickly after our arrival, yet the service was swift and nothing was too much trouble. The staff explained dishes really well.... More

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
