“Beware of champagne prices!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

This was a very good meal right up until we received the bill. We each had the 100 euro tasting menu that came with three glasses of different wines, but the two glasses of champagne that we ordered for aperitif were 25 EUROS EACH. At 50 euros for two glasses of champagne (it wasn't Krug, either) that's half the price of a five-course menu with wine and coffee in the same restaurant!

Shame on you!

“Great food, intolerable service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We had the 69 euro tasting menu. Tres bien, borderline 'formidable'. Amuse-bouches, fish tartare, foie gras with figs, simple cod with peppers, lamb with green beans... all delicious, with a tendency to oversimplicity rather than overcomplication, which suits me well.

We added the 30 euro 'mets et vins' wine pairing. For this, we got two glasses of wine, one white Bellet and a red Bandol. Neither was served in time with the dishes: the white arrived towards the end of the starter, the red before the lamb.

The waiter, a busy and charmless light-haired man, repeatedly unsettled the meal by throwing cutlery down between courses, taking food away early, and cleaning up around us towards the end of the meal. On paying, he acknowledged we did not receive the full wine pairing, but as we did not want a digestif, he took our money anyway, and run off back to the kitchen with a quick 'désolé'.

No reason to revisit.

“Exciting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Went there with the family. We have been to a number of restaurants with Michelin stars and we had high expectations. The interior is very nice and personal. There were not many other customers besides us that night. Food was very good and inspirational and service was good and attentive. But in the end, there was something missing - that personal touch you expect in a restaurant at this level. So that's why the overall rating was very good, not excellent.

“Good, but not star quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Nice restaurant and friendly but a bit anonymous service. We had a tasting menu with wine pairing and food varied from fantastic (oyster starter) to bland (lamb main course). Wines were nicely matched with the food, but the pairing was not exceptional.

Compared to any of the one-star restaurants in Sweden, this was lower standards, but to be fair it is also half the price...

“Wonderful Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

It is gratifying to find overall Tripadvisor reviews that are consistent with this excellent restaurant. Preparation and flavours were distinctive. The filet with the wasabi sauce was to die for. Wine list is excellent and good values abound. Chef Matsushima unobtrusively wonders around and is more than pleased to talk to his guests which are an international crowd.
