This is truly one of the best restaurants in the World - and the total experience makes it perhaps the best restaurant experience you can have! Everything is sources on the northern mountain estate - and cooked with the ultimate rustic elegance! Impeccable service - innovative wine lsit - amazing space and surroundings. Nothing beats it.

We had seen a program presenting this place on the French TV and therefore included it to our Norway/Swedish itinerary. One can go for dinner only but there are 6 rooms as well and it's much better to spend the afternoon before and morning after, there as well, as the location and buildings are outstanding as well. Weather permitting you... More

I don't know, I guess if you're a non Scandinavian it's more special and unique this "wooden cottage" lost in the wilderness feeling. I personally found the whole experience too choreographed and even a bit soulless. maybe if I had stayed overnight I would have felt the magic describes by others, but I base my experience solely on the food...

Headed to Faviken having been told by my sister about two years ago that she'd met a guy who worked at Noma who told her to forget his gaff, Faviken, in the back end of nowhere, was where the real action was but only Scandinavians really knew about it. Then, about six months ago, saw AA Gill's five star write... More

One of the most unforgettable dining experiences ever. Totally worth the journey. The breakfast the following morning is all part of the experience too so do not be tempted to miss it. We were there in July and would now like to visit again to try the menu from another season. Staying over night is hugely comfortable. Do not be... More

Magical experience in a magical setting. Fäviken is probably one of the world's best restaurants with local top class food cooked and served in a highly innovative way. The restaurant does not have room for more than 10-15 people and when we were there we were 6 of us with probably the same number of chefs in the kitchen and... More

Travelling here from the UK is as another reviewer put it a pilgrimage, we came via Trondheim which was a beautiful journey in itself even if a little long. So arriving at the appointed check in time of 5 pm is perfect as there was time to wind down, relax & change with the help of the provided sauna, cold... More

Insanely good food, an all-embracing ride through the most unexpected and redefined tastes of Nordic Sweden. If you think that you know all possible ingredients to a great dish - forget about it and come here. Great team & service, pure nature and excellent amenities. Worth the journey.

The setting and service was as amazing as the food. Starters were a revelation, especially the amazing thing done with dried blood and the shellfish type dips. Scallops, langoustines were especially sweet, the sight of a marrow sawed mid way through the meal was a sight, but the expectation ofthe taste did not match up. Breakfast was equally amazing made...

This is definitely one of the finest dining experiences I have ever had, the setting is stunning and the place is not in any way pretentious. The staff were very kind and welcoming, and could explain everything for you in great detail. The dining experience is quite theatrical, and the dining room itself is gorgeous and rustic, there are only... More
