If you're in Aarhus - then treat yourself and go to this restaurant. The woman who runs it is passionate about her job and it's infectious. The love she puts into her food translates into the most delicious and fresh food. Not tapas as we know it, but a work of art in every dish. Sublime fish, tasty pork, delicious... More

If you're looking for a nice place for a pre-theatre, I'd definitely recommend Forlæns & Baglæns. The tapas-style dining means you can easily share dishes and try everything on the menu (we ordered one of each dish on the menu to share between five people). The food is delicious, and the seasonal winter dishes were proper comfort food for a... More

We shared a couple of good tapas at an outside table on a sunny evening.(tapas plate, patatas bravas and a plate of smoked tuna), and it was a very pleasant experience, incl. the tasty IPA beers from Ebeltoft Brewery.

Popped in from the street to have a bite to eat. Never heard of the place before, and basically just needed a light lunch between meetings. I felt comfortable and at home from the very first moment. Friendly people ( proprietors, I think ), a blackboard menu boasting a dozen different tapas and fish&chips. Actually it all kooked good, but... More

small, intimate and cozy surroundings, really great food and drinks. I highly recommend to get the menu with before and after dinner cocktails, a glass of wine to each of the 3 courses, that you select from the menu of the day. The courses are perfect for sharing! Menu does not change much, but thats not an issue, when there's... More
