Bib Gourmand named bistro

Pondus is the youngest family member of the 1 star Michelin restaurant Substans. Like Substans Pondus is recommended in the Michelin Guide 2023 and awarded with the Michelin Guides' Bib Gourmand. 

With an eye for local, organic products and inviting, colorful dishes with affordable gourmet prices, Pondus, is one out of just 15 restaurants in Denmark, who has been awarded the Bib Gourmand status. A status which is given only to restaurants of particularly high quality with affordable menus.


Michelin recommended and star rose

In addition to a great Michelin recommendation, both reviewers and guests lie down and thank you for excellent dining experiences. Århus Stiftstidende gives Pondus 5 stars and says: "You have to look really long for better value for money in Aarhus than at Pondus."

In addition, a couple of guests, i.a. from Trustpilot: "The food was delicious, the service was top notch and we were greeted by a pleasant atmosphere and good treatment." and Facebook:

“We asked the chef to serve what he himself wanted and we were blown away to say the least! - Pondus was everything we hoped it would be!"


Organic Danish on the menu

Pondus emphasizes the premises, organic products - and the dishes must say to taste accordingly. Here you eat Nordic from a modern bistro kitchen with fresh ingredients. Fish and meat cuts are on the menu with vegetarian elements, all depending on the day's purchased products.

Drink cool, fresh wine or Ebeltoft Gårdbryggeri's dewy beer for the meal. There are cozy bistro sensations, where the Nordic countries meet the South with rustic walls, wine barrels and natural materials.
