Had a reservation at 7:30 and seated promptly. Lone waitress was extremely friendly even though the restaurant was mostly full and she was working very hard. She let us take our time ordering and have a couple of cocktails, dinner and a bottle of wine. Before we knew it we were last in the resto except to two outside tables... More

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.
