“Unique setting, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We used to stop for lunch or dinner here at this charming faux castle built in the 1930's when the kids were small, to help them appreciate good food in a civilized setting even while traveling. Returning after several years, we were happy to see that the kitchen team and other staff continue to deliver. We had nicely prepared and presented nettle soup, pike-perch and loin of pork. Our charming, professional waiter of a standard rarely seen in Sweden is also worth a mention. As always, you are surrounded by a baroque setting and able to enjoy the view of lake Vättern an Visingsö. At 145:- the price for a lunch is absolutely reasonable.

“One of the best roadside resturants in sweden.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Having passed Gyllene uttern hundreds of times and always stoped somewhere else.
To be quite honest the beautifull castle over looking lake Vättern has intimidated me with its exclusive feel. However friends recommended that I take lunch there and when I finaly did, I was not disapointed.
At 150 sek for lunch its not the cheapest stop but the food was very good, the salad bar was quite small but of highest quality. The coffee after the food was great.
To sum upp great food served in a beautifull location... highly recommended.

Locally caught fresh water char - beautifully cooked. The sunset over the lake whilst eating - unbeatable.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2008

Possibly the best roadside restaurant in Sweden. Be prepared to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated if you want the "travel lunch" = dagens, (139 sek May 2008) - or go for the a la carte or the seasonal menu (1, 2 or 3 courses 195/235/295 sek, May 2008) on the veranda and enjoy the spectacular view.
"Old school" waiting staff and a kitchen that could keep up the pace - although not with 100% accuracy: someone got their steak "well done" instead of "medium" and another didn't get the sauce on the side, as requested (she didn't seem to care much tho, she was about 3 years old).
