We have visited Mistral on saturday 20th of Oct. The contrast to the night before at Fredsgaten 12 where we had excellent food, wine, service. was huge. Mistral=missery and I am not exagirating. The restaurant is located in suburb of Stockholm, we got there after a long drive in the T-banen and about 10 minute walk from station. It was ok, the restaurant itself was causy, small but friendly atmosphere. We wanted to start with champaign, but to our surprise it was not chilled. We asked if we could have cold champaign but then the owner and chef came to our table to lecture us, this was a kind of champaign it had to be warmer to make this taste stronger. He said in their restaurant they served the wine and food as they like to be served. I thought interesting why do you then have a restaurant if you are not interested in your customers?? So I skipped the champaign and didnt have to pay for it. They have only tasting meny 3 (650SWKR) or 5 courses (850SWKR). The courses were, well if can call them courses, were so tiny such 4 half pieces of baby onion on a big plate, it would not fill in one plate. Most of it just vegies. The main course was meat and it had to be bloody so I informed them I dont eat raw meat I got an egg on my plate instead. They charged the same price as if it was meat. My husband who is chef and has his own restaurant had full wine and tasting meny. In the wine meny they forgot to serve any one with first course, for two courses it was the same wine, for another course it was just green tea and then red wine and dessert wine for 850SWKR...We felt cheated, robbed, mistreated and disrespected. We never experiences such an arrogance and living in fantasy world.The missery costed us around 2700SWKR. To save the night we went to a normal restaurant to get some discent food and wine.As one of the other visitors wrote it rightfully, this is the story of the emperor walking around naked....I hope one day they will get contact with reality and remember they are in the service business and they are there to please the customer not the other way around.
