In 3 weeks travelling around Scandinavia - this was the best meal and best service we had. Found it behind the hotel where we were staying (Elite Stadshotellet - see sep review, don't stay there!). We sat in the front extension on a warm night and people watched, but they looked to have a cosy cellar area inside. Our waiter... More

The food is super tasty and there is always a good choice of amazing wine to go with your dish. The staff has great knowledge about the wine they serve, the food is local and the service could not be better!! If in Karlstad make sure you visit this restaurant!!

Very poor serivice, rude staff.The food is of poor quality, cheap manufactured goods served. Not what you would expect at a restaurant with prices slightly above average. Any other restaurant is a better choice.

We selected this restaurant on the basis of the food choices on the menu outside and were really delighted with the grilled smoked salmon carefully presented and ultra fresh salad with goat's cheese. The wait staff were extremely attentive and helpful. Although the wine choice by the glass was limited we were happy. This was a lovely restaurant with a... More

Definitely below expectations. We had a steak with fries, and it was ok but not more. I would say considering the price we paid, it was less than ok. It was very cold in the restaurant at the time and we ended up wearing our coats the whole time. I would not go back.

Above average options, very well presented. Local meats, such as venison or Elk, are very well done. Above average proces, but I would go back and saw it as a good value.

The food: The menu is very ambitious with local ingredients. However, the standard of the food is not as high. Don't get me wrong, it was good enough, but I was expecting more after reading the menu. The staff: Very helpfull staff. Not all that knowledgeable about types of beer, but made up for it in smiles. The atmosphere: Nice... More

Nice restaurant serving good wholesome fare. Typically relaxed - turn up in the snow with boots and thick jackets and they won't bat an eyelid about your attire!
