Broken has a typical american concept. The menu is quite extensive and consists of burgers, fish and chips as well as some pastas and Tex-mex. The pub styled interior is quite cozy and the outside has a few tables to enjoy the afternoon sun. All in all the place is decent if you're looking for a non-formal restaurant and to... More

Be prepared to wait. Went twice; Once in January and again 4 weeks later. Both times it was more than an hour. Bar is fine. They don't take reservations. Burgers ok by U.S. Standards. Staff works hard.

Broken has managed to keep a very even quality over quite a few years. It's not the place I choose to celebrate something special but it's a reliable place to go when I'm hungry and don’t want to risk being disappointed! Good food, good service and hardly ever empty!

Located at the top of Åre square by the funicular Broken offers a great pub experience. The food was just right. We had the baby back ribs and the green pepper burger. Portions were very generous and tasty. Even on a quiet night in Åre (the week before sportlov starts) it was pretty full and busy. Service was good and... More

This is a fun bar, right next to the Bergbanan funicular train/lift up to the slopes. I had fish and chips, and beer, and the fish and chips were definitely a cut above the usual greasy mess; nicely done. I also liked the atmosphere, with an old snowmobile and old skiis suspended on the wall above, and the proximity to... More

Broken is in the centre of Åre Village. American style food (burgers, fajitas etc) and has a large bar selection including various cocktails. Laid back atmosphere and friendly and efficient service. The food is of a good level and reasonably priced.

Tried the original burger after a long day of riding bikes, and it was the best burger I have tasted both in norway and sweden. New favourite restaurant.
