I had a very nice time at Koka. Very good service. I had the three courses meal, and that included 3 amuse-bouches.I enjoyed everything, I would say that the menu is very priceworthy for being in Sweden, but unfortunately the wines are very expensive.

Had their 6 course "Sinnenas meny" and it was all very enjoyable, but only 1 or 2 dishes were truly exceptional. Wine pairing, on the other hand, was really, really good. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Went there with some business colleagues on a recommendation, unfortunately we were filled with disappointment. The menu tried to be very clever, however each course had a few mistakes in the flavour combinations that ruined the dishes. For the price I would have expected to be blown away by a “Cookery Masterclass”, I was not! Of course, we may have... More

Dropped in here for some charcuterie and a drink on a Monday evening - the place was quite quiet but it felt very cosy and full of atmosphere. The sharing plates of meats and cheeses were delicious, if a tad on the pricey side, but you could tell the quality was high. The bar doesn't have the full range of... More

My boyfriend enjoys watching cooking competitions on TV, so for his birthday I booked a table at this fancy, one star restaurant. They were very fast to help us when we came in, were very polite and took our coats. We were shown to a table and were served champagne and appetizers. They were very polite and professional :) I...

An excellent evening with dear friends. The food at kock & vin are always excellent, and tonight we was here with some friends that wanted to have some especial requests outside of the suggested menu. The waitress's handled the requests in a very good manner and to full satisfaction. We can strongly recommend this restaurant in all perspectives, booth from... More

We dine in many good restaurants, but our dinner at Kock och Vin was one of the most interesting by quite a margin. The name is a pun on coq au vin and there was no sign of anything that might be Bjorn's Bar when we went in June 2013, so I hope this is the right place. Each course... More

Finedining bar, really good wines in a gastropub like atmosphere. Top of the line food. This is the "backpocket" to the Michelinn star Kock & Vin restaurant on the floor above. It is to be noted that Tripadvisor has this restaurant paired whit the bigger "brother" which is something completely different but whith the same staff.

Bjorns Bar is really friendly, lovely food. All cheese and cold meat starter plates for sharing; then two or three (carnivore / vegetarian) mains to choose from. Really tasty, as befits the restaurant upstairs.

My husband, daughter, and I had a truly memorable dinner at Kock & Vin. There were so many delicious surprises and extra touches including special amuse bouche before beginning our dinner. Dinner is fixed by the chef so diners choose the number of courses with or without wine. The rest is a delightful surprise. In addition the kitchen had to... More
