We wanted to go some weeks ago because Nerman's was a super restaurant serving delicious food but unfortunately it has closed and been replaced with another.

Seen the reviews and been to both Nermans and Smak (now). Smak is now much better then the reviews to date. Service is friendly and the menu caters for range of tastes, whilst prices are modest. In 2 weeks vacation we have eaten there twice - no complaints! Food was really fresh and nicely presented.

Nermans has long been one of our favourite restaurants, as was it's predecessor at this location Ogilvy & Mailer. However, We visited the restaurant in May 2013, and discovered that it is now called Smak and is operating under new owners. We were not at all impressed with any element of the restaurant experience. The fabric of the building needs... More

Mr Nerman returned to Sweden in February 2013. The restaurant has changed hands and is now called Smak. Reports from friends who have visited say it a big let down. Please tripadvisor remove Nermans as it no longer exists. I did advise you back in March. Letting a very poor restaurant keep the reviews of the previous owners is not... More

We went to Nermans last night and we left highly disappointed. First of all we would like to warn everyone that this restaurant has recently changed ownership and it is not Nermans anymore. It is now called SMAK and it does not retain any of the good quality mentioned in the so many and so good previous review. The new... More

The welcome and hospitality are beyond reproach, we booked a table for two and a half people, my son being 5 and not interested in eating. The meal was absolutely superb, you must check out the Ox cheek and the steak both are great. The service and general atmosphere were beyond reproach. PS ask them to open your champagne with... More
