Yummy food!

We had been craving a steak all week and stopped here when we saw that they had 4.5 stars on TP. The meals are lovely and no more pricey than Australian meals. The desserts are their weak point however I am still giving this five stars because the steaks were awesome.

They have lots to offer on the menu from Thai food to normal things like pizza and burgers. Their speciality is Swiss food so you will find very traditional food there. We are big meat eaters in South Africa so the steak was a welcoming treat! Pop in for a good plate of food, have a massage next door and... More

I came here for a lunch after reading some of the reviews on here, the European man at the register (who I presume is the owner) barely acknowledged me when I entered, and the waitress who seated me was also very emotionless. I had order a Swedish sandwich and the meatballs, I requested the sandwich was brought to me first... More

I have holidayed in Phuket for many years now and cannot find a better place to eat . The food is excellent ,especially the steaks with great wines to accompany them. The service is second to none . The owner is always at hand to interact with the diners.The atmosphere and its location bookend a very enjoyable experience.

If you want a great steak in Patong this is the place to go. The fillet steak and pepper sauce is a must. Great staff and service also. I highly recommend this place.

I've reviewed this restaurant before in years gone by, but worth another review as we always return here at some point during our holiday for a nice steak. I think the portions have shrunk slightly to maintain the price which isn't cheap. However the steaks are still very good as are the sauces. We always have ribeye with either bernaise... More

Had a pretty good steak here and was good value too. The steak was not top, top quality but was good enough and the bearnaise sauce was ok. Service was good and ambience was nice enough. You could do a lot worse in Patong.

I have visited karlssons many times and have always been impressed with the quality of food and friendly atmosphere of staff and Mr Kent the owner. The price is reasonable and the ambience is above average. 😊

Our friends skip this restaurant due to high prices, but we went to check it out. Food was avarage, you get same also in plastic chair restaurants. Not bad, but nothing special either. This is place for you if you miss swedish people.

We went and ate dinner here. They literally took two minutes to bring the food to the table. We ordered pork fillet it obviously takes longer than that to grill pork. The meal was cold and awful. Been to this place six years ago and the food was much better. Guess the swedish owners have made to much money and... More
