“Been here a lot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

The bar is amazing even tho everyone in it isn't. I wanted a Hendricks with cucumber (from the outdoors bar) and got a look like "oh my god are you going to make me have to go inside to get the cucumber" form the bartender. I am a customer; say "Yes please" or "No, unfortunately". Don't complain. I've had lunch which was ok, can't comment on the dinner.

The bar areas/outside is often over crowded during the busy nights and waiting can take a while.

All in all I often regret Rex. It feels like I'm not getting what I'm paying for but I understand not everyone feels the same way.

Ps. Once I got free food when they were closing. That was an awesome gesture :)

“The best lunch in Umeå”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

At Rex, they love to do their job. One sees it from all the details and care that is put in the choice of the ingredients, in the variety of the menu, the smile and zeal of people serving. Fantastic brunches on saturdays. Amazing cocktails in the evenings.
This restaurant saves people living in Umeå from winter blues.

“Good service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Rex gives a solid variety of good quality food for a reasonable price. The service is well trained and friendly. A good place to go if you like to eat something else than the standard bar food.

“Great restaurant, quality meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

Rex is a very nice restaurant in downtown Umea. Sitting inside is preferable, especially a table with a view of the kitchen. The price may be a little high, but the service and quality of food is great.
