After walking around Himmelbjerget and seeing some of the sights there, we stopped in the Himmelbjerget Hotel. They is little cafeteria setup for visitors. You take a tray and enter the single line where you can pick up juices, water, tea or coffee as well as light meals or snacks. This is not fancy but it is not expensive either and I liked it quite a bit. We had something small such as sausage sandwiches with a side dish, hamburger and fries, or other small dishes (about 6-9 Euros). The salads at about 4-6 Euros or fruit were also good choices too. After paying at the cashier, you then proceed into the nice size dining room to eat and relax a while. Unfortunately, we didn't have alot of time but we did enjoy the stop for a little refreshment. Visiting Himmelbjerget provided a nice little interlude for the morning and the lovely views beyond the mountain were pleasant too.
(Apologies for the low quality photo - it seems that here as in many of my pages, the old photos have somehow suffered degradation.)
Favorite Dish: I would have liked to see more of the Himmelbjerget Hotel as it looked very quaint, but since we did not have time, it was still pleasant to enjoy their dining room and talk with other people visiting for the day. The room was large and comfortable with plenty of tables and chairs, and the cheery tableclothes made for a very cozy, comfortable country decor style.
Since I didn't order a fancy meal, all that I can say was that I enjoyed what I ordered as did the other members of the family. If we had been there longer, it would have been nice to try the formal dining room, hopefully sitting at a table with a view.
The vegetarian Mrs B wanted to visit here! she spotted an "all you can eat" salad bar so, who am I to argue?
Firstly the salad bar was as good as advertised, large choice and happy to make it a main course too. For me a well cooked steak and a couple of beers from the local brewery, what could be better?
Very close to home for us, an evening stop for a nightcap and also a lunch here too. Great to sit outside close to the river.
Food is traditional Danish and a mix of other international, we enjoyed our meal here, it's a lovely friendly place to visit.
In NYC, dining out is a sport and New Yorkers think of themselves as experts in food, drinks and ambiance. I am happy to say that Miro exceeded my expectations. My friends and I enjoyed a six-course meal and wine pairing. The cuisine was seasonal, adventurous and sublime. The wine was paired thoughtfully with the food. We had a Grenache from Rhone- light, yet sweet, similar to a port. But when paired with the duck foie gras with raspberry vinaigrette and quick-freezed raspberries,the food and wine was well-balanced and brought out the flavors of the dish and the wine. Other notable dishes were the incredibly tender venison with celeriac puree and Waldorf salad "cylinder" and the seared scallops with Jerusalem artichoke puree and scallop carpaccio wrapped with shrimp "paper". For dessert, we enjoyed a cheese plate- YUM! and chocolate cake with orange sorbet and toasted hazelnuts, paired with a cloyingly sweet Gewurztraminer. The ambience was cozy- tall candles and low-lighting (unlike the super dark restaurants in NYC. Danes are excellent at making the atmosphere cozy). The wine was presented by Chef Tony, and he remarked on the vineyard and the taste. Each course was presented by the sous chef, in great detail. Miro is a gem in Aarhus!
this is a traditional danish steakhouse with all kinda steaks. For the vegetarians they have a very good salat bar and jacket potatoes.
its a chain of restaurants all over denmark .
they have an offer in the afternoon from 11 - 16 with steak of the day for about 50 Kr.
At the end of the afternoon we had a drink at the outdoor terrace of Café Faust. Just a Danish beer (Royal) with some nachos to nibble on. The nachos with molten cheese on it were great. If you like other beers this is the place to be too. There is a wide choice available.
And somehow we ended up here for dinner that same night. We both had a pasta, it was delicous and absolutely more than enough. Although the pasta with chicken and the pasta with seafood tasted very different i couldn't recommend one over the other.
There is an english menu availlable.
In the summertime, you can sit outside or on the terrazzo upstairs. Centrally placed, it is the perfect place not only for students that want healthy and inexpensive food but for any hungry adult that doesn't want to spend a fortune for a meal.
It is open Monday to Saturday 11.30-23.00
Favorite Dish: You can get a la carte, but choose the buffet (it's even cheaper before 16.30). It includes moussakka, beef squares and vegetables, vegetarian with spinach, mushroom etc, bulgur, several kinds of rice and freshly baked bread (pide). Plus, feta cheese salad, tzatziki, humus, pasta salat, mixed salad (several kinds), and dates. Plus chicken legs. And fresh fruit (several kinds of melons and grapes). And Danish fruit salad. And cake. Marinated garlic cloves. Marinated green beans. And... And....
A well-localized snack-sized and -serving sandwich specialist, this is where to go if you want your snack, small meal, or take-away made from the freshest possible ingredients. The kind staff grill their chicken and bake the baguettes/buns themselves, up to the minute. You can also have salads, BLTs and the standard 1/4 chicken with french fries (but watch that GORGEOUS chicken! lip-smacking! no deep-frying there, just rotisseriying (or whatever it's called). They are open Mon-Thu 10-17, Fri 10-19, Sat 10-18, Sun closed.
Favorite Dish: The baguette sandwiches, with chicken and bacon. Or shrimps and eggs. Or BLTs... Oh MAN.... and home-made mayo - did I mention the home-made mayo? no? well, they make their own....
This place is a mixture of a bar and restaurant and seems pretty popular with locals. I really liked the feel of the palce, the staff were really nice and the food was good too.
This place seemed to be the height of cool in Aarhus. A good mixture of classy people of different ages.
A terrific latte, a glass of wine and a huge burger after wandering through town and checking out some museums equalled happiness for me.
Open 10am til 2am weekdays and Saturdays, 12 til 12 on Sundays.
Favorite Dish: This place offers everything from Brunch to Dinner. We were here for lunch but this is also quite a fashionable hangout in the evenings.
- the Okseburger which was enormous, the type of burger you really struggle to get through with fries and a garlic mayo for 90kroner
- Classic Club sandwich which was also pretty big, though I preferred my Burger! - for 70kroner
This restaurant has some really good buffet selection including lamb, chicken, rice, potato fries, vegetabel stew...as you imgaine, yes they are mostly Turkish dishes... but you can choose from a range of Greek / Italian / Turkish salad and cheese. Fruits like strawberries, dates and slices of melon and cakes are also included in buffet. Price DKr. 99. You have to pay for your drink apart from that. Its not just buffet, you can also order from menu. A highly recommended place to eat.
If you happen to come to Den Gamle By museum, Aros or the Art Museum of Aarhus would be on your right side on the way. Even if you don't like 'art' can easily spend a couple of hours at its cafe. For 34 DKr, you get four cups coffee at the price of only two. Good priced snacks are also available. Have a great view of moving Aarhus through the glass.
Post has great food, no crowds! As of this writing (Feb 2004) the building is hidden behind a construction site on Åboulevarden. The place has great food and no customers. Friendly service. In sum: Save Post.
Favorite Dish: Greek beef.
this cafe is situated on Aaboulevarden right in the very centre of Aarhus.
They have the best sandwiches in town..the prices are above average but if u get a sandwich here u wont have to eat for the rest of the day( ok ok maybe not the next 5 hours ....)
Cafe Vigo but also anywhere that serves up frikadeller and find a friend that will make you 'rød grød med fløde.'
Cafe Vigo has a side walk area to dine at. It offers an atmosphere that can only be described as 'hyggeligt.' A whole, untranslatable feeling that is loosly said to be 'cozy.' Candle light and small tables on the street that the river runs down. The cafe also offers a full bar for all your Tuborg, Carlsberg, Ceres, Faxa, or other beer needs.
Favorite Dish: The best hot chocolate in the city! They also have wonderful burgers; piled mountain high with toppings and salad or fries. For other places, try frikadeller. That is the most eaten 'national' dish. It is a pork patty fryed in butter and served with...what else but...potatoes! Rød grød med fløde is a dessert. It is stewed red berries that is slightly gelled then served with sugar and cream. And even if you do not eat it, every Dane will ask you to pronounce it!
my fave restaurant is also a very cheap one( well i dont have money to go to the expensive ones - just a poor student)
Its called ' det grønne hjørne ( the green corner)' and is located on Frederiksgade which is right in the center of town .
they have a delicious buffet containing all sorts of thing just for my liking like cous cous , bulgur, rice, humus and all other good things from the mediterranean area .
The prices for the buffet is from 11 am- 4.30 pm- 59 kr pr person and from 4.30 pm to closing 99 kr.
Try it !!
