“Nice atmosphere, unexceptional food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

This restaurant has a very pleasant traditional atmosphere and good service.

However, our food (especially the fish) did not really taste of much, and promised more than it delivered. For this reason, the prices (while not extortionate) in our opinion didn't represent very good value for money.

German cooking can do better than this, and should do at this price.

“Back to the old swede...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

I have recently visited the old Swede and I was positively impressed by the atmosphere and service. The food was good but the fish was not up to standards as you would expect. The prices are good, reasonable for the kind of food you get and service is rather fast and efficient. You need to book for the week end but on Sunday is easy to get a table.
