I really liked this restaurant. We tried to go there on the Friday night but without booking so they said they could only make a table for available for us an hour later which was fair enough. We booked for the following (Saturday) night instead booked. The food was very good indeed (easily of the best duck dishes I've ever... More

Bara Vara is an excellent and fun place which I've been to many times. They have both the best bar in Helsingborg (in my opinion) and a restaurant that serves great food. I really like just about all the dishes I've tried there. And the service is professional and friendly. One of my favorite places to go to Helsingborg for... More

You will not be dissapointed ! Wonderful atmosphere, great location and the best food ever. Highly recommend a visit! If you just want a drink, something from the barmenu or a real meal in the restaurant section this is the place!

What can I say in a few sentences. Clean, great menu, Swedish service and relaxing. Nice place for a glass of wine on a warm evening. Very good wine list. Some said it was very sony, I didn't feel that.

Bara vara is a nice place, packed with people and ambiance. It's centrally located so you are smack in the middle of the city. We only had drinks so I don't know if the food is good, but the wine was excellent!

Located on a side street, a block off the major pedestrian shopping street, the entrance is a single door into a ‘bar scene’ with very colorful and interesting décor. The front of the restaurant featured lots of small tables in the bar area. We were escorted along the side of the restaurant to a dining area in back. The atmosphere... More

Great food, great service, great wine, great atmosphere and a great night. Nothing let it down, well almost nothing. The lady serving us was fantastic, attentive and professional. The guy who helped serve a couple of things was well below her standard but let's be fair it was only because she was so good. The food was packed with excellent... More

The food was VERY good: gratinated langoustines and lime and cilantro marinated seafood as starters, all beautifully arranged! As mains we had entrecote and Swedish beef with creamy paste. The last dish was badly arranged: just beef on top of spaghetti. But also these dished were tasty. The restaurant has few choices; four starters and five mails but a lot... More

Entered a rater dark, modern bar and was greeted by smiling waitress who lead us in to our corner table in the restaurant further inside. Colourful, big paintings on the walls, modern dark leather sofas and chairs in this black/dark/bare... More
