“Better than in Sweden”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

As a Swedish expat living in Barcelona, I can safely say that this is one of the best Swedish restaurants I have EVER been to. The meatballs are outstanding (forget it, Ikea!), as is pretty much everything else on the menu.

I recommend going for the selection of starters or just ordering one of everything on one-Euro-tapas Wednesdays! At €13 for 3 courses, this is also one of the best-value, high-quality lunches in Barcelona. With its minimalist Scandinavian interior design and food that is always cooked to perfection, this is an equally perfect venue for business meetings and/or romantic dinners, as well as nights out with groups of friends.
