In Åre you'll find this old hunting lodge reminiscent of the end of the nineteenth century, but which is now home to the Villa Totebo restaurant. The open fire in the dining room spreads warmth and the bar lights up in the winter gloom. The menu contains the best of modern European cooking, with inspiration from other parts of the world as well. The kitchen uses by choice ingredients from Jämtland and other regions in northern Sweden. There are also set menus and a party menu.

We enjoyed our meal at Villa Tottebo

We had a nice dinner at Villa Tottebo. We were visiting Are in September, which is the off-season, so the restaurant was nearly empty and the owner was able to chat with us for a while - which was nice since there was so much we didn't know about Sweden (we're from the US). The decor is nicely... read more

We had a booked dinner at 31st Dec. Despite the fully booked restaurant was the food really good, the service staff friendly and we enjoyed the evening. The only little minus was, that from our perspective the courses came to fast, so that we were not really able to enjoy the wine offered for each course.

Welcoming restaurant, good service, pleasant atmosphere. My husband and I both chose the same two courses, reindeer tartar, followed by artic char. The tartar was delicious and beautifully presented, unfortunately however the next course let things down. The char was not very flavoursome, although perhaps that is to be expected, I have only had it this one occasion. The vegetables... More

A great deal of thought has gone into this restaurant. On its face, it is local produce and high-end Swedish cuisine. However, the quality of the food, the comfort of the space and the architecture all enhance the experience. By Swedish standards (i.e. a country with a government alcohol monopoly) the wine list is very good. Reindeer, elk, arctic char,... More

Lodge Tottebo (Villa Tottebo) is a must if you like fine dining the traditional Swedish way. The kitchen is always on there toes to deliver first class meals. Unfortunately the service level do not match the excellent chefs. Unneccesary mistakes happens from time to time. Nice wine selection, flexible and very affordable taste menu. Good kids menu! Reservations are recommended.

Great tasting menu including marinated grouse, raindeer filet, locally produced cheese, and icecream with cloudberries. Excellent wine list, cosy atmosphere, and friendly but a bit inexperienced service staff
