We have been at this lovely place several times, and again the fish menu was absolutely recommendable. One of our guest did chose the meat menu, and her main course was rather disappointing. Otherwise service in top, and nice affordable wine to follow the menu.

Visited as part of a business party for dinner. Restaurant a little hidden away and not much to look at from the outside but very cosy and friendly within. Service was very good and took time to describe each dish and to cater for dietary needs. We enjoyed asparagus and sea food starter, delicately plated with edible flowers, a hearty... More

I went there for a business dinner. I didn't really know what to expect. We were met by a very nice waitress who put in the extra effort to tell us the menu in English. Extra points for that. The restaurant is fish themed and you can see that all around the place. On the walls you can see all... More

Very delicate and sophisticated food and great service. The fish soup with the turbot was fantastic and the hake main dish just perfect. A very cozy place, highly recommended.

We went to Pihlkjær as one of our visitors from England that week is a vegan. I booked the day before and asked for one vegan menu and 3 regulars. When we arrived at Pihlkjær the waitress had memorised the entire menu in english and was not afraid to answer questions from our english guests. We had one vegan menu... More

I ate here with some colleagues recently for a work dinner and it was a lovely meal. The wait staff were friendly and courteous. Pihlkjaer also made a delicious meal for one of the people in our group who is vegan. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

I had a lovely three course fish meal here last Friday night, complete with some delicious white wine. The restaurant is incredibly cosy and had lovely, unusual decor. The service was brilliant, as only English speaking the staff were great at explaining everything on the menu to us, and when the food came they explained again. All in all a... More

I have been there with job collegues. Place is elegant and coozy. Waiters are nice even if their english is not at the level to explain the menu. The choice on menu is very limited. But food is so good that doesn t matter. Good choice of worldwide wine. So a place that you cannot miss in aahrus

The restaurant is located in center of the town, always good atmosphere and good, relaxed, treatment from the staff. 2 persons having a nice glass of bubbles, then starter and main course, with a good Chardonnay for only 920 kroner .... 3 visits within 14 months...

A fantastic meal this evening in Pihlkjaer. Faultless food, service, atmosphere and price. The team waiting on at the tables had an excellent knowledge of the food as it was being served. I'm advised that the menu changes regularly and I can confirm the choices are limited only do not let this out you off in any way. The choices... More
