Had a great dinner here on a friday night. They have a different menu almost everyday with 3 courses for 185dkk. They have 2-3 dishes to choose from for every course. They also always have a rib eye with sides for the same price as 3 courses. They have great prices on wine bottles and other drinks. The place is... More

We went for dinner, and 3 course menu at only dkk 185, which is really best deal in town (I would say). All 3 menus was above average, followed by a glas of Riesling white wine and Cotes du Rhone red win - both super. Staff fine, all very cozy. Can only recommend this

Den Rustikke offers a set price menu for only 185k. There are only two choices for each course and these tend to be very typical bistro food, for example soups, duck leg, chicken breast, mussels. The food is good value and reasonably tasty, but not too exciting. The location is really good, near to a few nice bars for a... More

What a little find. Very basic menu, but deliciously prepared and served with a smile. Prices are very reasonable, the only downside is the coffee...it is abysmal! But all in all a good experience and at that price, hard to beat. Good value, velprepared, non-pretentious food

My partner and I met up with a colleague of his, and his partner for dinner. Our waitress graciously brought us an English menu, offered to let the chef choose wines based on our food choices from the set menu. Delightful. The mackerel starter was delicate and (seemed like the sort of thing I had to eat in Denmark). The... More

It was pleasure to have a meal at this restaurant. until that visit we had found most folk in Aarhus rather unfriendly, so it was a pleasant surprise to receive a warm welcome into a lovely atmosphere. We chose a fixed menu wth matching wines. The food and wine did not disappoint one bit. Our waitress looked after us well,... More

Food and quality in an upstanding condition to its price. Not so the service. We had the impression that the service was only as good as long as there were things to bring out of their kitchen.

I came here as it was one of the more affordable places to get a 3-course dinner. I was pleasantly surprised. The place had a cousy atmosphere and the food was great. If you don't want to spend a lot of money but still get great food, you should have a bite here.
