Great food - but room for improvement

I had escargots as a starter (nice) and lamb for main course, which were excellent. Of our party of four, 2 ordered baked potato as a side, but they never showed up, although the waiter said that they were almost ready. When the plates for the main course were carried out, I noted "what happened to... read more

Not much more to add. One feature I really liked, the menu gives the option to chose the site of your steak from 200, 300, 400 or 500 gram cuts. I've seen comments that the restaurant is expensive, but I think Brits find Denmark expensive anyway; relatively speak, I don't think for the quality, service and experience it is expensive

They have good burgers especially the biggest one. Tasty salad with shrimps. That's what I've tasted and what I can recommend.

Great service, cozy location - a bit expensive. However, I will still recommand it. If you love meat you are at the right place.

Whilst I stand by my recent criticism of Jacob's steak restaurant, I was recently taken for lunch in its adjoining cafe, which is unassuming and reasonably inexpensive. The chicken pasta in white wine that I had was nicely served, garnished with fresh basil leaves. The room is pleasant enough, and the service polite and professional. So as a venue for... More

I've dined in Jacobs perhaps 8 or10 times across the years I've been visiting Aarhus. It was once a bastion of good quality steaks served in a buzzy atmosphere by efficient friendly staff at reasonable prices. Sadly these standards seem to be declining. The last couple of times have found the steaks patchy in quality - rather tough and cold... More

They hit the balance between quality and price. The quality is fine but not fantastic – but the prices are reasonable. There is a small garden at the back where you can eat al-fresco in the summer. It is popular for low-key business dinners and families

We had a quite nice dinner at Jacobs Bar BQ. We ordered the mixed grilled platter and the meat was perfectly cooked. I had some difficulties choosing the sauce and the waitress ended up bringing me both which was very nice of her (and I would definitely recommend their Bearnaise sauce). We also took some desserts (chocolate lava and pancakes)... More
