Description: Restaurant Mefisto is an everyday restaurant located in the heart of the charming Latin Quarter in Aarhus. With emphasis on fish and seafood in a classical and modern combination Mefisto offers a wide selection of food ranging from brunch to a four course seasonal menu - all at affordable prices. The fact that fish and seafood is of special importance at this establishment is furthermore supported by the 2016 win of "Best fish and seafood restaurant in Denmark" as well as the fish cookbook written by the charismatic owner Lars Kyllesbech. The restaurant is casually decorated and the atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious. During the summer months the restaurant opens its courtyard which adds another dimension to this beloved place. Whether you are looking for a professional environment to host a business lunch or a romantic setting for a dinner, Mefisto welcomes you with warm, personal and friendly service every day of the week.

“Quaint and delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

This restaurant in the Latin Quarter of Aarhus is charming and cozy. The meal was delicious, but the service a bit slow. They seemed to have only one server who was pleasant every time, but it was sometimes a little bit to get her attention. Very much worth it.

“Where expectations are met”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Mefisto is my all time favorite in Aarhus.
It's cozy, it's friendly and food is always good!
It's an honest restaurant. No stuck up food introduction, no straff trying to pretend to know more than they do. Prices compared to quality: Honest! You can be sure, that no matter who you are dining with, you will have a warm, good and fulfilling experience, and you will walk out of the restaurant door with a content smile.

“Nice food - nice service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

A small and cozy restaurant. The food seem to be french inspired, but using local and fresh ingredients.
We had a 3 course dinner. But they have food for any hunger - big or small..

The food was very nice - perhabs not gourmet, but simple and tasteful. The service fast and polite.

Definitely worth visiting.

We just went to mefisto because it looked so nice, end there were a big basket of shining yellow
lemons outside.
We were certainly not dissapointed, it was the best lunch i have had for a long time.
Salad with smoked salmon, and nice warm bread.And though there were full house the server
was calm and very helpfull.
