Must try!! this is a great place to visit. The food is great, the waiters are very professional and the beers are cold :-) If I re should say something, then please try and change the wines, the wine menu is awful and that is so sad because the food is so very good.

I've been here several times with a variety of friends/family. Everybody loves it. Don't eat the day you decide to go, you'll need room for all the delicious food. Prize: you won't get gourmet and wine ad libitum picked by a somaliér, coffee and avec for this prize anywhere else. It's a bargain. Your evening will start by being showed... More

You arrive at exactly 18:30 and you are seated within 7 minuts. The chef is going through the courses and informing you about the arrangement while you are enjoying you welcome drink, dry bobling water, perhaps a crement which was quite okey. Three different white wines to choose from Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and a Riesling. The Riesling was without a... More

They have crammed so many people into the restaurant, that it is impossible not to feel like sardines in a can. Also the tables are way to small for all the glasses, plates and little bowls. Both food and wine was average. I like the concept, but they just do it so much better at a place like Madkælderen Koldinghus... More

This restaurant directly at the little fishing port of Aarhus and in front of the Marina is a place you must book for your next Aarhus visit. The concept is simple ""Eat as much as you can"" and still you feel that you haven't tried everything. I was there for a Sunday Brunch. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and... More

I have now had an evening meal and a brunch here where everything is a fixed and you can have as much wine (and a decent wine at that) as you want with your meal. The food is very very good for what you pay and the chefs and staff are all very enthusiastic and know thier menus. Location is... More

Molecular cooking with a harbour side setting in central Aarhus. We enjoyed a 3 course wine inclusive set menu consisting of seafood, rabbit main course and a multi piece dessert. Wine was self serve ad lib. The cooks and waiters are all closely supervised. The locality and food experience was well and above what you'd expect at this price tag.... More

Det Glade Vanvid or in english "the happy madness" is a concept restaurant where you have a couple of hours, get a pre-defined menu and get all you can drink wine. (Danes love free alcohol). The food at Det Glade Vanvid is not at the level of other restaurants in Aarhus that have a pre-defined menu for the day, that... More
