Excellent cousine!

I took a three-course standard menu. Food and service excellent, soft atmosphere, a bit expensive. I'd recommend it

I was fortunate to dine here in my 1st visit to Sweden. A very pleasant modern restaurant. We took the tasting menu with accompanying wines and had a great dinner. The food and flavours were great with a nice Scandinavian slant. I would be delighted to eat there again.

This restaurant follows the trend for "tasting menus" but we stuck to the three course offering. Ambience excellent and service great. They actually asked about any food allergies, and were able to provide excellent alternatives for the food intolerances we had. at zero notice! Star of the place though was the food; beautiful flavours and textures with fantastic presentation. Highly... More

Restaurant had a nice atmosphere, ideal for an intimate meal, ideal for couples. Service was good from start to end. Had the 5 course tasting menu which started off with the very rich mushroom broth. The first 2 courses were good but both had elements of sourness which were nice but would prefer for it to not be one after... More

I enjoyed my dinner here, but not enough to really want to return. To my taste, there was too much edginess in the form of vinegar, mustard, sour cream etc.--not the suave, harmonious type of cooking that I prefer. The thinly sliced lamb, as well as the bread, were a bit too salty. Visual presentation of the dishes was not... More

I nice restaurant with an informal atmosphere and a friendly staff. The food varied from very good to ordinary (lacking contrast), and did not quite fullfill my expectations to a restaurant that has gained a Michelin-star.

I was very excited about this restaurant, as it newly changed it's concept and name. It didn't disappoint. I had the three course meal with appetizer of crab and blackcurrant was a new and intersting flavour - so tasty. But the lamb was simply some of the best I've had. As it is in season in Scandinavia come fall, it... More

The menu changes regularly, so maybe I had a dud menu on the evening I went. I had the 5 course menu - frankly it was rather forgettable and I can't remember every dish. But there was a mackerel cheviche dish, a main that was pork belly and a dessert of berries. I found all the dishes were a bit... More
