About us


The menues

Our choises in the kitchen have extended the selection of more sustainable products in order to protect the environment, and reduce the emission of CO2. We therefore serve a lot more vegan- and vegetarian options. That said you will always find a good steak and fresh fish among the dishes. But we are constantly working to optimize the side dishes with Danish and local greens and herbs. Not at not least everything from Ærø. If it is not already declared by the menu, ask! Meat is often of foreign origin, but all fish is from Ærø, or picked up from authorized auctions in Denmark. Always fresh!


Our waiters this year are the best! As always. It is not a secret how recruitment has been a challenge in recent years. For many reasons in general. ‘Working hours’, ‘no free time’, ‘too busy’, ’lack of well-being’ and ‘too low pay’. This year we will do whatever it takes to combine a good working life with a proper private life to have the staff stay with us. All year. We would like to be an all-year restaurant, where the regular staff can live and enjoy the wonderful island life on the side.

Ambitions and goals

We want to serve good food, and you shall expect the service to be outstanding! Humans make mistakes and humans at Mumm correct mistakes with a smile! We collaborate with our colleagues on the island! If you for some reason cannot get a table, count on us to provide an alternative! On Ærø we stand together, and often use the expression: ‘We all do better, when we all do better 😊
We are looking forward to the season 2023.

Honesty and solutions

The all-year team is head chef Kim Jensen, caterer Anne Nordberg, restaurant manager Polly Martin and owner Pia Fuglsang.

In the high season from May to October, the team is enriched with 12-15 extra employees. Every year we look forward to 'gathering the family', when local young people return for the summer, to help us when things get very busy.

It is of utmost importance to maintain a good worklife, and happy employees. We serve not only our guests, but equally each other.

The motto at all times is: Honesty and solutions!

All year team

The courtyard

The garden is an admired and cosy spot at Mumm. Surrounded by green plants, hedges and bushes a lunch or an evening-meal is priceless. However the garden is not sheltered or heated. The gods of the wheather decide the outdoor serving.

If they are with us - the gods - and if you have booked a table in due time, you can be almost certain of a place. First come first served!

The entrance to the garden is a must see. Don't miss the large mural in the gate, made by artist Trine Sørensen, who grew up in Ærøskøbing. With a great sense of humour, Trine tells a lot of hilarious stories from our charming village.

We are very proud of this fantastic and colorful painting, creating a speciel southern atmosphere.
