The Happy Madness

As the name of this place suggests, there are no limits to the joyful madness you can experience if you sit in the soft chairs of The Happy Madness. It is the brothers Jesper and Lasse Koch who have opened the doors to this cornucopia of a gourmet experience in Randers and Århus, respectively. In Aarhus you will find Det Glade Vanvid on Pakkerivej 2B in the heart of Aarhus.

The owners even call the place restaurant and social dining. The concept is not to be mistaken. In a cozy and slightly informal setting, you can enjoy world-class food when the delicious dishes are ready in a row. From the start, the owners wanted to establish a place where guests could come, where nothing is missing and where opt-outs are not part of the evening at all. That is why they have created an all-inclusive restaurant experience where you can taste everything. Most places in the country that serve buffet let you pay for drinks next door, which often cost almost the same as the food itself. You will not find this in Det Glade Vanvid. You pay 399, - for the whole madness. On Friday and Saturday, however, you give 599, -. It's worth the money.

The concept is, as mentioned before, all-inclusive gastronomy. Therefore, in addition to the delicious, gourmet food that is adapted to the season, you also get the opportunity to taste seven different wines and two kinds of beer.
