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

We just walked by Mefisto on our way to another place that we had been recommended but looked at the menu and decided to there instead. That was a very good decision 'cause the food was great and good service! We felt welcome and courted. We had today's appetiser which was with elderflower and really refreshing. I then had the...

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.
