“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

"Bullen" is simply one of the best restaurants in Malmö, with a great selection of traditional Swedish food. I had köttbullar (the famous swedish meatballs) the last time I ate here, and they never disappoint: probably the best version of this dish that you can eat in Southern Sweden. My wife had fish soup and she found it delicious. Lovely atmosphere, too: the food is 100% Swedish, but the stile is influenced by English pubs.
The price is more expensive than the average Malmö restaurant, but still worth it all.

“This place was exactly what I needed on a cold winter day in Sweden.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

It was a mid week, middle of the winter day that my friend and I decided to head over to Malmo from Copenhagen to check it out and see if there was anything worth seeing. Well somehow we stumbled upon Tva Krogare and all I can say is, we stayed for the whole day. This place was really great. The atmosphere, they have the oldest tap in Malmo, great selection of beer and some good traditional swedish food. The best part for us mercans was that they would take our swipe and sign credit cards, so we were pretty happy.

If you are in Malmo and looking for somewhere nice, has some Hygge (i know its danish, but this place has got it) and great beer, you've found it. And as as a real treat we just happened to be sitting next to one of the greatest photogs of all time Jan Olofsson who is a Malmo native and this happens to be his spot. Just talking with him about his life was worth the entire trip to Malmo.

“A taste of Sweden as it used to be?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

In a time when restaurants change owners every 6 months and waitresses are young, pretty and incompetent, it is refreshing to move back in time. Decor is...brown. Look around and all you see is...brown. It's an English pub, except that it's Swedish. Food is uncomplicated, big portions, and the crowd is unsophisticated (not meant to offend). And, once in a while, that's what you want. Except for late night drinking I've visited twice, lunch and dinner. It's yummy, and you will not walk away hungry. The dishes are very old school (think varieties of meat and potato, or fish), but given the concept I cannot fault them. However, you can certainly get a more interesting (but likely less filling) experience for the money. The beer selection is distinctly above average, but not excellent.

“Good food, flighty service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We found this place by throwing a dart at Google Maps when were on the ground in Malmo, so we had no idea of its reputation before entering. They do Swedish classics very well, i.e. veal meatballs with lingonberries, and creamy dill shrimp salad. Of course, those choices wouldn't be complete without a tall Carlsberg, naturally. The only complaint we had was about the inattentive service, which made it hard to get refills in a sparsely peopled restaurant. It might be a heavily tourist-weighted attraction, but don't let that stop you from getting the Scandinavian classics.

“Excellent place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

I was in this Restaurang with some friends and it was a very cosy and warm feelings. The atmosphere nice, the good excellent with a touch of homemade. Lots of people and one of the staff become irritated and small rude and that's the only negative. I come back for sure. Only hope he don't work.
