Short Wine List of the Year Denmark 2020
A long Aarhus darling, who recently changed location to the new area of of Aarhus in the harbour. The restaurant is located on the 13th floor with a spectacular view of Aarhus. The interior of the restaurant is kept in the same mood as before with inspiration of 1960’s clean architectural design. Restaurant Substans had a michelin star at the old address, and nobody would be surprised if they get one again.
