I have been to Skovmøllen many times in my life. This visit stands out. The food was good as the level of Unico. But the staff was very high quality service minded to all clients. There were families with small children. Their toys made the waiter all most fall at some point. The professional waiter just smiled ( a bit... More

If you want to go to the woods south of Aarhus (Marselisborg woods) perhaps after a visit to Mosgaard Museum then stop for a lunch, coffee and/or cake at restaurant Skovmøllen. Very very cosy place with athomsphere like the old days. Very nice food as well

I had a great dinner at Skovmøllen, which is in an old wood mill in a beautiful forest. They offered a great mix of traditional Scandinavian and modern cuisine with a fine selection of dishes and wines.

A lovely location for the summer, but in the colder weather the restaurant is cold and draughty. The food was uninspired and we were charged 60kroner for tapwater without any prior warning.

We went for a lunch on a nice sunny day. It was just great, lovely danish lunch on the menu. Can only recommend this place, only ''dis-advantage'' is its about 20 minutes drive from Aarhus C.

We were visiting Danish friends and decided to stop and see the old mill, perhaps have lunch if it wasn't too late. They were very friendly and accommodating so we stayed and had a wonderful lunch. The food is traditional Danish so we had the Smorsbord and Danish Beer, topped off with schnapps and dessert.

We went to have lunch at Skovmøllen. The menu included many different products from local producers around Jutland. We were three adults and two children and chose some different dishes. Everything was freshly made from the ground and very delicious and we were all happy with what we had. The staff was friendly and we had a nice time outside.... More

This is a cozy setting if you need a break and a coffee/beer/meal after a stroll in the woods around Moesgaard Museum (MoMu).

We walked in and excuses were made not to seat us to one of the available tables; pretty disappointing.

Great food, a bit pricey, but totally worth it. The perfect lunch on a warm summer day, where you can enjoy the scenery (pictures).
