Description: 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.

Dear QWEASW

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your experience with us at Mefisto.

We do think that maybe you misunderstood something. We don't bill our guests by the bottle of water and then remove it before to make more money. As stated on our menu - when water is ordered without any other drinks it costs dkk. 20,- pr. person.

So I am guessing that three people at your table didn't order any other drinks than tap water and that is why you see it three times on your bill.

I am happy to hear though that you enjoyed the food.

My good lady is Danish and we met some Danish friends for lunch in Aarhus and they booked Mefisto a very good choice. They are loads of good places to eat in Aarhus but Mefisto is up their with the best. They do really great Danish fish dishes try the Stjerneskud or in English Shooting Star a selection of 3 fish and Prawns on toast with a dressing and a green salad it’s brilliant. They do a sort of taster menu as well with 7 different dishes which my friend Ole had he said it was great as well. They have a great selection of dishes at very reasonable prices. Also the beer and wine is very good.
