The brunch is served in the middle of the table and counts a variety of little servings. Very nice. If weather allows book a table in the yard.

Enjoying a delicious seafood meal on a little cobblestoned street in the heart of Aarhus? It doesn’t really get better than this! Wonderful staff, friendly service, great food and specialty beer made this evening a true highlight of our roadtrip in Denmark.

The beef tenderloin was excellent. The staff were friendly and the setting in the Latin Quarter is interesting. In short, we give it high marks.

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.
