One of the old "players" in Aarhus, in the 80's and 90's the place to hang. They still keep the Bistro style and with a great decor and general a nice environment and design of the restaurant it all feels great and cozy. The food quality is high, and really good selections of wine etc. staff is super and all in all a really good experience, highly recommended.

I was taken here by my company for dinner with a small group (about 8). Don't come here and expect to get vast choices of mediocre dishes. The menu was a 3 course chef "special", or a limited number of a la carte items. Most of my colleagues chose the 3 course special, but ordered a la carte. My starter was a fish based soup with a fancy arrangement of shellfish on top. It was to die for. The rest of the meal continued to up the ante (a fancy beef bourguignon, followed by a berry/ice creamy/sorbet/chocolatey concoction) and the service was all provided by a young, friendly and energetic waitress. I enjoyed every bite and every minute. I cannot comment on the value as I wasn't paying :)

Absolutely brilliant meal. Service, food, atmosphere and wine all absolutely top rate. Quiet and friendly and willing to pander to visitors from across the pond. The lobster starter was solo good. The entree and dessert kept up the standard. A gem of a restaurant to which we would happily return, if given the chance.

Super experience. Food was nice, excellent beef from New Zealand and a lovely strawberry dessert. And the bread is so good and they bake it themselves. Knowledgeable staff who had time to chat in spite of the place being quite busy. Very good wines as well served by the glass. Carlton is located almost next to the cathedral and facing a small cosy square where you can sit outdoors and dine.

I really like the atmosphere but that's the best I have to say. No one at the entrance to welcome guests. No one even at the bar. After about 5 minutes someone showed up behind the bar as we were considering leaving and said they would fix a table for us. After an unreasonable wait considering the number of staff and that all that was needed was to clean up a table we finally got a tiny table seated in a nook next to the kitchen. Too hot.

The menu actually looks interesting and some things actually looked quite good as they passed us by from the kitchen. However I had a burger that was dry, the chips were greasy. I could get that level of food in any 2nd rate joint.

Personnel was friendly and service was hurried, not fast. Staff in jeans and dirty sneakers is not what you expect in a restaurant that should be in the better end in Aarhus. A member of the staff in the kitchen was using a very dirty dish cloth and again you expect better in a place like this.

However the restaurant would have been very reasonably priced if it had lived up to expectations.
