If you really like proper food, this is the best choice in town. I have been eating in this restaurant for five years, and the food is truly some of the best ion Sweden. I am still surprised that they have not received the star yet. Excellent service, avantgarde interior and lovely food. Location is next to the Opera.

Swedish taste mixes up dishes you've never even thought about with a nice and clean surrounding and a formidable service. I can sincerely recommend just walking by and eating a dessert if you can't stay for a whole dinner serving.

This is an excellent restaurant that shows gastronomy as an artform, including taste, presentation, environment and service. We had a four course meal + a wine package. To my personal taste, 2 would have been enough, but that is of course only personal taste. Highly recommended.

I visited this place following a recommendation from a Korean guide book. The staffs were couteous and the dishes were marvellous. I was really surprised to meet chefs coming out to my table to explain about the dishes! It was a wonderful experience to have exotic food with friendly staffs.

this is a really good restaurant. There is a tendency nowadays to pair exotic ingredients with no regard to taste. As if individual tasty things should taste good together, not always so. Really nice pairings here, good wine list (i had a fabulous Bonne Mares when i was there) and good and unobtrusive service. The only downside is that the... More

I took my father out for a "boys' night out" during his visit with us last week. My husband was away on a business trip for the week-end, I had arranged for a baby sitter for our son, and I finally, after living in Gothenburg for over twenty two years, got a chance to take my dad to the opera....

We had our company Christmas dinner here. We had a private room upstairs. The view looked out at the opera house. The service was excellent. We had a six course meal with accompanying wine with each course. The food was delicious and artfully displayed. I tried foods that I haven't ventured to try before In Sweden. The meal did take...
