we all had a nicely cooked meal in a pleasant atmosphere. The only downside was billing the tap water one of our party decided to drink.

When the restaurant won fish & shellfish restaurant of the year I just had to go, nevertheless I did not feel the greatness of the restaurant. Chairs and tables are very close together so you don't feel any privacy, the wine list is average and food decent. My lobster menu left me with a few things to wish for compared... More

I tired the Turbot and it was excellent. This is a very nice and comfortable restaurant. The food quality was very good and the service was excellent. I would recommend this place.

We came for the Brunch platter on a Sunday (luckily with gift vouchers from friends). Service was great and all staff were kind and caring. However the food was another story. :( with so many great options in the area you would expect that the food would at least taste good also there were plenty of people which was a... More

This restaurant has received a lot of hype. The food was good, service warm and competent, the general atmosphere cozy. So cozy, in fact, that on one chair at each table there was a red shawl, in case the general coziness needed a bit extra for someone coming in on a cold and damp evening. I don't think it deserved...

We went for brunch! The brunch option was very good and the chef came out and explained it all to us (in English). I got the Fiske Frikadeller and it was the best I've had in all of Aarhus. I highly recommend both dishes!

Went here for a lunch with a friend. We were not disappointed! Most delicious fish-soup I have had and the meat was good as well. Service spot on and cozy place. There seem to have a lot of fish dishes, so if you like fish this is the place. Highly recommended, at least for lunch (haven't tried eating there for... More

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.
