“A fabulous experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The food and wine don't come cheap, but it is worth every penny. This is a restaurant to blow the budget and enjoy. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal; typically Scandinavian. The flavours and texture, the presentation and service are all exceptional. I have never experienced a meal like the one I enjoyed at Faviken. I'm going to save up and go again! We managed to combine a visit to the restaurant with a skiing trip to Are which is close by. Worth considering, and more environmentally friendly to combine with a holiday in the beautiful surrounding area.

“Great gastronomical experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

You have to experience Faviken Magasinet if you are a foodie!

It is an unique Restaurant located in Jamtland, an area of Sweden with ski resorts, wild life & one very tralented Chef in Magnus Nilsson.

The entire experience at Faviken Magasinet is out of this world. From the welcoming, to the exciting sorroundings around the estate, the fabolous dinner , and even more surprising- the breakfast the next morning!

Easy way to reach there is by train from Stockholm. Around a 6hour ride. Nice nature and scenery during the train ride which makes the journey more enjoyable.

Highly recommended place to visit.

“Beyond words.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

That is what Fäviken is: beyond words. It is impossible to describe. Let me just say that, thus far, it has been the most extraordinary gastronomic experience we have ever had. The best dinner ever: best food, best wines, best atmosphere, best service, best location. Go to Fäviken and let yourselves be mesmerized by Magnus Nilsson, a magician of food, and enjoy one of the most beautiful regions on Earth: Jämtland, Sweden. Stay at the beautiful restaurant's hotel and, before dinner, have a sauna, look outside through the large window and relax. Pure joy.

“An adventure and worth every moment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I've written an entire blog about the meal. It's divine. But, I came on tripadvisor to review our stay at the inn overnight. Yet, there wasn't a separate page for the inn. Staying at Faviken is ideal, since there is hardly anywhere else to go after dinner. Our room was cozy, featured a nice sink and storage area. Although the bathroom is “shared” down the hall, there are actually several of them (I spotted three). I know other people were staying at the inn as well but we never saw anyone, anytime we went to the bathroom or the shower. All very tasteful in design and the equivalent of any 3 or 4 star inn anywhere. Be sure to get breakfast the morning after – it’s equally as delightful as dinner, which was unbeatable.

There was an annoying man who kept standing up and running around the dining room taking photos of each course. Perhaps in the future the guests might be encouraged to stay seated so all the diners could see the theatricality of the preparation of certain courses.
