If you are expecting white table cloths and posh waiters, find somewhere else to go. This is gourmet food served in a wonderful garden and a back yard where there was a canopy and heaters to warm us on this rather chilly summer evening. It's something out of the ordinary and while enjoying the excellent food, we sat back and relaxed. Even though all the tables were booked (you really need to book at least when we were there in July), you are left to eat in peace and quiet. There was no rush to get us out of the restaurant to let others in. We could choose between a set four course meal, just one of the main courses or a picnic. We chose the four course meal and it was absolutely fabulous. Ecological, local food, some of it even came from the herbal garden and the vegetable patch not far from where we were sitting as far as we could make out. If we had the chance, we would have gone there again and tried the picnic as some of the other guests did as this also looked very nice: they received a colourful plastic basket with plates and cutlery and loads of small jars containing the different «tapas».

If the weather allows if you have to enjoy eating their tapas in the garden.
We have tried it several times now and can highly recommend it.
Do to the terrain wheelchair is not recommended.
Remember to book ahead.
Enjoy.

Hidden in a little (well, not so little) backyard you'll find tables here and there in the garden, some of them stand in the same patio with a new tent covering it so you don't have to fear the danish weather! There're plaids in a box you are welcome to use if you should be cold. The menu card offers few but enough things and while waiting you can serve yourself at the center table with home-made bread, home-made sauces and salame's and when the dishes (finally) come in you know the waiting has been worth it. The dishes are prepared as in a gourmet-restaurant and I can assure you they also taste as if!
During summer the shy and kind owner organizes jazz-concerts here which make the evening just more unforgettable with its good food, kind service and excellent food. Smag, a must when you're in Djursland, even in Aarhus it's worth driving for as you also get to know the old, little town of Ebeltoft which is one of the prettiest in Denmark.

Good food, convenient location off main street but very quiet and private. We have walked past this restaurant so many times not realising there was a restaurant inside.
