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

Far North lies the new mandatory pilgrimage for any self-repecting foodie. I had dinner last week with Swedish friends at Faviken and entered an enchanted realm of snow and fire. The restaurant is part of a beautiful farmhouse in the middle of nowhere in snow-covered Jamtland. The fire comes from the kitchen (mind-blowing grilled goat, not the easiest of recipes),... More

Our holiday in Sweden was constructed around a pilgrimage to Faviken as the highlight of the trip. We had read Magnus Nilsson's book (manifesto) so many times in preparation for our visit that we felt that we knew him personally. The intimate and charming way in which it was written was very persuasive. His philosophy is admirable in its desire... More

The food and wine don't come cheap, but it is worth every penny. This is a restaurant to blow the budget and enjoy. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal; typically Scandinavian. The flavours and texture, the presentation and service are all exceptional. I have never experienced a meal like the one I enjoyed at Faviken. I'm going to save up... More

That is what Fäviken is: beyond words. It is impossible to describe. Let me just say that, thus far, it has been the most extraordinary gastronomic experience we have ever had. The best dinner ever: best food, best wines, best atmosphere, best service, best location. Go to Fäviken and let yourselves be mesmerized by Magnus Nilsson, a magician of food,... More

I've written an entire blog about the meal. It's divine. But, I came on tripadvisor to review our stay at the inn overnight. Yet, there wasn't a separate page for the inn. Staying at Faviken is ideal, since there is hardly anywhere else to go after dinner. Our room was cozy, featured a nice sink and storage area. Although the... More
