“Nice busy typical place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

It's great! Very nice atmosphere, u can have live music and lots of people crowd this place: you definitely need to book it in advance!
Menu is simple, you don't have much choice, but the food is well cooked. Don't expect high cusine, but it's a good value for money. The restaurant is fairly cheap compared to the average.

“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Skt Oluf is a small part of France in the middle of Aarhus.
You can choose between 2 or 3 dishes (main course and starter and/or dessert).
The starter is fixed, and was salmon when I was there.
The main course is a choice between meat and fish (last time I was there it was a choice between braised shoulder of veal or a steamed white fish with mussels - very delicious). Dessert is a choice between 2 dishes: 5 french cheese or - in my case - apple and plum parfait with a scoop of vanilla ice on top.
The quality of the food is really great, and it is cooked with passion, and the prices are really low.
On top of that, the host is very french, which at times can be amusing :-)

“Easy to choose what to eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Very nice atmosphere, there are 2 types of menus: 3 courses and 2 courses but the waiter will not say it. It is written before entering. They offer one starter (in our case it was salmon with salad) and then as main dish you can choose between one type of meat or one type of fish. We had meat and it was really great peper steak with mashed potatoes and roasted parnsips.
We asked for the dessert - so we discovered at the time of paying - that we were on the 3 courses menu. It was very good: sort of apple crumble with cream.
There is no menu on the table, so watch out when you choose drinks. if you wish wine, they offer you the house wine and if you go for the bottle, well the price of your dinner goes up quite a lot!
English is not their language, but it is fun enough to try and understand each other!

“Extremely good value.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Have visited Skt. Oluf several times, and I have never been disappointed. It is good, simple, unpretentious, french inspired food. Always extremely tasty and well prepared.

The price makes it extremely good value for money. For 3 courses and a large draft beer, I have never paid more than 30 USD.

P.S. If the restaurant is full, go next door to Restaurant Olinico - You won't be disappointed.
