Restaurant Latin, Aarhus

Last night we finally tried Restaurant Latin in Klostergade. I’ve been walking passed it a few times thinking it looked interesting but also fancy in the expensive posh kind of way. Searching for a place to take the family out for dinner last night — and again finding it impossible to get a table at Den Rustikke without booking days ahead — I finally stopped to have a proper look at the menu and was happily surprised to learn that the 3 course menu was only 199 DKK.

The menu was as follows

  • starter: choice between moules-frites, fish soup, saumon salé, or carpaccio de veau
  • main dish: choice between poisson du jour, poussin rôti, or culotte d’Agneau
  • dessert: choice between a collection of french cheeses, gateau de topinambour, or crêpe suzette

and given that we were six people dining we managed to try all of them between us. They were all very good, interesting and definitely good value for the money. I had the carpaccio, the poussin, and the gateau — and was particular happy about the duck roasted poussin :). The manager, an original frenchy, recommended an excellent french wine: côte du Ventoux.

Notes for the future: highly recommended; food very good, fair price, service not too slow, good selection of wine. Better than Den Rustikke (but also slightly more expensive) but not clear if they change the menu as often as Den Rustikke appears to do.

PS: I came across Sct. Oluf in the search for a restaurant and it is definitely a place we have to try.
