It's a lovely restaurant and the food was quite good but for a ski town, it felt unnecessarily formal. Ingredients and their sources were listed on the menu and the waitstaff was quite attentive and friendly. Had I been somewhere else I might not have had the same reaction to the hushed atmosphere and high prices.

RESTAURANT'S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed January 6, 2017

This restaurant offered a great romantic setting in Are. Keen to try local delicacies we went for the Elk and King Crab to start. Whilst very flavoursome the King crab was a particularly small portion and quite pricey. The mains more than made up for this and we went for the gane meatballs and beef cheek - both very good...

We (a group of 10 persons - adults and children) had a super evening at Villa Tottebo in April 2017. The menu is diverse and suited for both adults and children, the service is fine and the Villa itself is Cosby and nice. The food was excellente.

Considering the very pricy menu - there are much better places to have dinner in Åre. Nothing exciting. Nothing extra. Nothing unique. Sorry. Will not return.

We had a wonderful meal here! First off, the restaurant is beautifully decorated and very cosy, typically Scandinavian. The menu is varied and offers lots of local cuisine including Elk Tartare and Game Meatballs! Would definitely return!

We had a special night out at Villa Tottebo and enjoyed great food, in a cozy high class atmosphere. Heaps of ambiance! Special mention for the cocktail waiter and his drinks trolley which was a great addition to the experience! Sadly I think he is not a permanent fixture but if the owners are reading then I would certainly recommend... More

When we visited Arè, we try to find a restaurant which open in winter and we were so lucky to have this restaurant which has a tasty menu especially their King Crab one which I think very comparable to even Faviken magasinet. Their waiter (Eric) is a very communicative person who could explain the food very well and live his... More

Villa Tottebo is probably the best restaurant in Are (f we don't include Faviken, that's quite a bit out of town). We come back every year. This year, I went for the menu. The starter was elk tartare. The pickled chantarelle mushrooms were divine. The main was ray with foam (not gimicky in this instance). I am normally a big... More

This was our first time in Are but Villa Tottebo seems like one of the more respected places in town, and rightly so. We had an excellent meal on Christmas day and the menu included a lot of favorites with superb local ingredients. Elk tartare was excellent as was the local pork and the cod. The restaurant appears to be... More

We walked up porch of the restaurant and read the menu and saw that it contained just about everything your heart would desire while visiting Sweden: elk tartare with pickled chanterelle mushrooms, fried Jerusalem artichoke chips, egg yolk creme and fried capers. King crab with octopus ink aioli, blood orange remoulade. They source whole local animals from family and and... More

Description
In Åre you'll find this old hunting lodge reminiscent of the end of the nineteenth century, but which is now home to the Villa Totebo restaurant. The open fire in the dining room spreads warmth and the bar lights up in the winter gloom. The menu contains the best of modern European cooking, with inspiration from other parts of the world as well. The kitchen uses by choice ingredients from Jämtland and other regions in northern Sweden. There are also set menus and a party menu.
