What a little find. Very basic menu, but deliciously prepared and served with a smile. Prices are very reasonable, the only downside is the coffee...it is abysmal! But all in all a good experience and at that price, hard to beat. Good value, velprepared, non-pretentious food

My partner and I met up with a colleague of his, and his partner for dinner. Our waitress graciously brought us an English menu, offered to let the chef choose wines based on our food choices from the set menu. Delightful. The mackerel starter was delicate and (seemed like the sort of thing I had to eat in Denmark). The... More

Three years in a row, each time we visit Århus we will have diner at Den Rustikke. It never disappoints! High quality food as always. Their chef is a musician & magician with the food! Give that man a medal!!! We will see you in 2017!

It was pleasure to have a meal at this restaurant. until that visit we had found most folk in Aarhus rather unfriendly, so it was a pleasant surprise to receive a warm welcome into a lovely atmosphere. We chose a fixed menu wth matching wines. The food and wine did not disappoint one bit. Our waitress looked after us well,... More

The restaurant served good food. In my opinion all with a special twist. It was delicious. The place is a nice place to stay and the team was very friendly.

Food and quality in an upstanding condition to its price. Not so the service. We had the impression that the service was only as good as long as there were things to bring out of their kitchen.

I came here as it was one of the more affordable places to get a 3-course dinner. I was pleasantly surprised. The place had a cousy atmosphere and the food was great. If you don't want to spend a lot of money but still get great food, you should have a bite here.

Again a popular restaurant, with lots of guests. Very tastefull and well composed menu, to a very fair price. I can highly recommend "Den rustikke".

The food itself is ok. Not like super gourmet but fine. Prices are reasonable. But the amount of food cannot even satisfy a child and the selection of beer is extremely poor! Toilet facilities are a tad below average.

On the evening we went to Den Rustikke the main course choice was fish or veal. I chose the fish and was pleasantly surprised about how it was presented. I was expecting something like canteen food yet instead the fish was the centre piece of a medley of vegetables with an excellent mix of flavours, just like a top restaurant.... More
