What a time to be alive. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has taken over the world and completely altered our daily life. All of us have been ordered to stay at home to stay safe. Maybe, like us, you’re feeling a little bit scared and confused right now, and maybe you’re unsure how you can still support local businesses. Even though you can’t go out to eat right now, a lot of restaurants are still open and offering takeout and home delivery options. This is part of a series of take-away guides in Scandinavia. We hope it helps make this time of quarantine a little tastier for you!
This guide is no longer being updated since restaurants in Denmark have been allowed to reopen. Check out our Aarhus city guide for a full list of the best restaurants.
Support Your Favorite Local Restaurants!
Restaurants are struggling to survive right now. They have employees and rent to pay, and hardly any income. If we don’t support them today, we might not have them around tomorrow. That’s why takeout is the new eating out! You can support your favorite local restaurants, and also eat better food at home. This list is compiled by our friends at the wine bar Reduktivt in Aarhus. Make sure to give them a follow on Instagram.
Aarhus: Take-Away & Delivery Food
The sister restaurant of Michelin-starred restaurant Gastromé is serving elevated take-away! Choose from Atrium’s à la carte options like coq au vin or veal, or pick a two or three-course menu (both offered for less than 300 kroner). Available for pick-up Tuesday-Saturday from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Click here to order.
Aarhus’ craziest and buzziest restaurant, Bardok, is doing take-away! With inspiration from all over Europe, you can get some pretty unique dishes that you might never have experienced before. Click here for the menu. Available Tuesday-Saturday, pick up from 6:00 pm. Email [email protected] to order.
Hærværk is absolutely one of our favorite restaurants in town. Like everyone else, they are of course struggling in these times, but instead of closing down, they decided to do take-away with the same organic and local perspective that they have in their restaurant. They offer a 3-course menu for around 200 kroner – it’s extremely cheap and absolutely delicious! Available Tuesday-Saturday. Click here to order.
Pizza is a really popular take-away food. One of our favorite pizza joints in Aarhus is called Il Locale, and is owned by a lovely couple, Stine and Jakob. They make such delicious sourdough, New York-style pizza that you’ll want to eat two pizzas yourself! Try the one with topped with tomato sauce, burrata, and fresh rosemary – you won’t regret it. Open daily from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm (and from 12:00 pm Thursday-Saturday). Click here to order.

Sabina from S’vinbar has opened up for take-away bottles in her wine bar, and is even offering discounts on selected bottles. So if you like big and classic Burgundy, this is for you! Check their Facebook page to see opening hours and available bottles.
Gift Cards, Donations & Future Reservations
If you want another way to support our restaurants during this time of crisis, consider purchasing gift cards for future use. The restaurants will get the money now, and you can treat yourself to a nice meal when life is normal again. If you have a reservation now, maybe postpone it instead of canceling. Stay safe out there everyone – and please remember to wash your hands, and practice social distancing.
