We went for a lunch, and was very surprised to hear the price of braised pig incl a glass of house wine, dkk 100 only. Alternatively fish (hake) incl a glass of wine, dkk 100 only. We had one of each, and there was plenty of food - and tasty. Will definitively come back here again, service fine as well.... More

Sort of dumped in Aarhus by a cruise ship that had to make an unexpected detour because of bad weather. Wandering around looking for somewhere to eat we found this really quirky place, don't try entering the front door, use the side passage and go around the back! Funny start. Helpful staff manged to speak a little English at least... More

After walking around and checking out places to eat in Aarhus we finally settled on this small place. We have no Danish so the very friendly waitress helped us with the menu and ordering. There were only 2 options for each course. 2 of the 4 in our group had the mussels for entree which they enjoyed. The main course... More

Cozy restaurant with delicious food (and big portions by Danish standards). You can choose for two appetizers, two mains and two desserts - 3 courses for 185 DKK. Food was delicious and our group of 6 enjoyed the mussels as a starter, 3 fish and 3 spareribs for main. The chocolate-orange dessert was unfortunately not quite so popular with our... More

Un pretentious homely little restaurant. The meals were delicious, full of flavour, good simple food, prepared perfectly, served in beautiful plates and bowls. Five in our group, all satisfied and grateful for a lovely evening. Would definetly dine here again if visiting Aarhus, shame it is so far from home.

Passed this place a few times but never came in until recently. Gave it a try by tasting their meal of the day lunch menu. Simply Delicious ! The place is run by real enthusiasts, there is a charming feel of old traditional cosy danish eateries. I am so looking forward to come and taste their wonderful food again! Carefully... More

The food tastes great and costs little compared to similar places around. I am used to come to Skt Oluf 3-4 times a year when having guests from abroad as it is easy to cover the bill for everyone and guest usually get a good impression of Scandinavian food with French fusion. I am not giving 5* though, because 1)... More

We dined here last week and fell in love with this place. It' offers a limited menu each evening and excels in the freshness and preparation of its offerings. We feasted on a huge plate of perfectly done clams for starters, then moved on to equally large servings of slow cooked veal roast (attractively served with a mushroom sauce, baked... More

I was visiting Aarhus for work and one of my hosts introduced us to this great little place. You would likely walk right by it if you weren't paying close attention, but that would be a mistake. The fixed menu wasn't large, but it provided plenty of choices to satisfy everyone in our group. The food was fresh and delicious... More

Do you want to have good time with your friend over a healthy meal and a good wine? Don't look any further, :-) just make sure to reserve before hand and you won't be disappointed! Be sure to try the mussels ( if on the menu ) !
