We enjoyed a very good dinner in the back courtyard of Mefisto. Danes know their fish, and this place knows how to cook and present the best the sea has to offer. The service was prompt and friendly, and the setting perfect for lingering over a last glass of wine. Try the Stjerneskud, a hearty three deck sandwich with salmon... More

This restaurant is famous for its seafood selection. Oysters, lobsters and other heart melting and mouth watering courses are presented with style. There is a small summer garden that I liked very much and beware you might not find a table for lunch if you do not book ahead. Place is very popular with locals. Latin quarter seafood star on...

In case you don't want to read the entire review scroll to the end --> "SUMMARY". We went here for my finished med school dinner with my parents and boyfriend. I had reserved a table inside by the window as I had read that the light in their outside tent is jellow'ish and makes the food look less tasty. We... More

Small cosy place with small cosy courtyard in the back. Avoid table close to toilet when reserving table. Food is fantastic and service polite and humoristic. Can recommend their fish and lamb.

We had planned a trip through Denmark, and booked a table at Mefisto, based on reviews. When we arrived on a busy Friday evening, the place was chock full of people. Eating, drinking, talking, having a good time. But our reservation had somehow gotten lost, and there was no table available. The staff was very professional; apologised for the mistake,... More
