Nice food. They serve pretty good meat for being Sweden. Good service. On Fridays they have a pretty decent TGIF in the hotel lobby.

Very nice Upper-middle choice centrally located. Generous portions. Limited menu, but what is there is good. Will definitely visit Esters again when passing by. Friendly staff.
