First of all I would like to say that I've been dining here for more than fourteen years both dinner and lunch, I once never left disappointed or felt ripped off, in recent years I've had that feeling a couple of times. I always go here for the good foie gras, the great Tatar and a reasonable bouef bearnaise, these... More

This restaurant looks like old Bristro in Paris. Design and décor are great. But it is really too expensive for a simple bristro cuisine ! Wine’s price is twice compare to France. The same for meat (NZ beef). Foie gras looked like French paté, and they bring tabasco with oyster !!!

Dear FredHeric Thank you for your review of Carlton. It's always great to hear the opinions of guests. Our prices are unfortunately forced to be as they are when prices for quality ingredients are so much higher plus that we pay far more in salary for good servants than they do in France. We hope to see you back at... More

I was taken here by my company for dinner with a small group (about 8). Don't come here and expect to get vast choices of mediocre dishes. The menu was a 3 course chef "special", or a limited number of a la carte items. Most of my colleagues chose the 3 course special, but ordered a la carte. My starter... More

Absolutely brilliant meal. Service, food, atmosphere and wine all absolutely top rate. Quiet and friendly and willing to pander to visitors from across the pond. The lobster starter was solo good. The entree and dessert kept up the standard. A gem of a restaurant to which we would happily return, if given the chance.

Super experience. Food was nice, excellent beef from New Zealand and a lovely strawberry dessert. And the bread is so good and they bake it themselves. Knowledgeable staff who had time to chat in spite of the place being quite busy. Very good wines as well served by the glass. Carlton is located almost next to the cathedral and facing... More

I really like the atmosphere but that's the best I have to say. No one at the entrance to welcome guests. No one even at the bar. After about 5 minutes someone showed up behind the bar as we were considering leaving and said they would fix a table for us. After an unreasonable wait considering the number of staff... More

This place has a great French cafe ambiance. The wine was good, and they had very nice oysters from Brittany. But the highlight was the amazing Boeuf Bearnaise. Perfectly cooked to medium rare on the inside, they somehow manage to get a wonderful, flavourful glazed effect on the outside. Altogether, it's just as good as any steak I've had in... More

This is a very cozy place, good athosphere and brilliant dishes and service for decent money, in the heart of the best place to dine in Aarhs ''Latinerkvarteret''. Enjoy this place either for lunch or dinner - it just recommendable.
