Visiting Victoria for a work-related dinner, invited by a local host – overall a very positive experience indeed. The design of the restaurant was cool, interesting and inviting, with little delightful design details here and there – butter knife, candle lanterns, window decor… Somebody has definitely had a fantastic eye for the interior detail. Very friendly welcome and service, throughout. I greatly enjoyed the perfectly cooked halibut with black mussels in mussels sauce and turnip mash for the main course and delicious lemon pie with liquorice ice cream for dessert. Will absolutely return in the summer when in another work meeting in Umeå! Just learned that the restaurant has been highly ranked in a Swedish restaurant guide, and do not wonder why.

Good food with a nice atmosphere, but seriously lacking in customer service. You expect an excellent experience with the prices they charge, but unfortunately they fall short in customer care. The service during dinner was not without flaws, but what was more disconcerting was that my party suffered from food poisoning after a visit at Victoria. I wrote to them to tell them of our unfortunate experience but did not even receive a reply. This suggests to me that they take neither customer service nor hygiene seriously. What a shame.

Nice restaurant, but too expensive compared to service and quality of the food.
Not recomended if you are not addicted to white tablecloth.

This is one fine restaurant. We did not have a reservation and so were seated in the bar for our meal. The setting was lovely -- elegant stairway, very nice second floor location, divided dining room that kept noise to a comfortable level. The menu is limited, but the range of options quite reasonable. Our appetizers were the highlight of the evening -- the beetroot appetizer and the shrimp toast were sensational. Skip the pasta -- it was only average -- but the meat special (northern Swedish beef) was excellent. The house wine was nice, the service was good and the evening was most pleasant. (The bar tables were too low for a truly comfortable meal. Plan ahead and make a reservation.)

The restaurant has recently changed its name to Viktoria to emphasize that the style is updated. The food is fancy, so you must eat a full three course meal to not leave hungry, but that is not a drawback since the food is great. Highly recommended and is THE fine dining place in Umeå.
