We chose a taste menu with 7 dishes and wine package. Every dish was a pleasant surprise and even though it initially looked like we would not have enough to fill our hungry group, it turned out to be fully sufficient, larger portions of all those exquisite dishes would have been too much. Service was very personal, they knew what... More

Upon a short visit to Gothenburg, I had dinner in this fab restaurant. Food was delicious and service impecable. The amuse-bouche had great presentation, though not to my taste. The variety of bread and butter was great. I had the beef and it was so good that I almost lick the plate. Amazing flavours. The mash in the plate was... More

We ordered a 4 course menu. Starters , main dish and deserts, everything was excellent. However, wine selection was as good as food if not better. It is not a big restaurant so you don't feel lost and service is more personal than bigger places.

Had a great night here with wife and work friends in september. Food was awesome. Ate three courses with scallops, fish and an ice cream dessert. Evereything was beautifully arranged and tasted very good. The only thing I wished was different, was the size of the portions. They could have served some saus and potates on the side. Home made...

After being greeted at the door and showed to our tables we immediately got the food and wine menu. Started with a glass of house champagne (served in too small glasses) and decided to go for the 4-course set menu with accompanying wine selection. All four courses, the bread, the amuse-bouche were fantastic. The service was even better adjusting to... More

Took the three course meal with wine. Really great and incentive dishes. The wines chosen by the sommelier are excellent and really complement the dish. The atmosphere is good and service was very professional. A Real treat!

A really warm welcome from friendly staff ensured that my wife and I felt right at home as soon as we sat down. Our waiter talked us through the menu and recommended some great beers for us to try. We both had the four course menu which was full of great flavour combinations, the small tasters and palette cleansers between... More
