Description: Swedish/French cuisine using local produce, presented with great finesse in a pleasant and cosy ambiance. Whilst being centrally located in Örebro the restaurant is tucked away in a calm sheltered location. The restaurant is now operated by its chef Johan Tinglöw who has worked at Ågatan 3 since 1995. The restaurant seats 65 people, has a classic style and offers a pleasant comfortable environment.

Dining alone whilst travelling abroad can be a daunting experience. Choosing somewhere to eat on your own can be quite tricky so I was very glad that my hunch to try Agatan 3 was spot on. I was made very welcome by the host and given a lovely corner table. The menu has a modest but fascinating selection of dishes and as I simply couldn't make my mind up in the end I decided to treat myself to the tasting menu (599Kr). I am so very glad that I did as the six plates placed before me showcased a wonderful selection of local ingredients. Agatan 3 takes the business of sourcing its meat, fish and fresh produce very seriously indeed and it was good to read about the provenance of the food.

The dishes themselves were excellent - thoughtfully crafted and beautifully presented. The balance of flavours was carefully judged and the skill of the kitchen undoubted. Particular favourites were a starter of whitefish roe with fennel smoked halibut, parsley root and citronetté and a main course of wild duck with goose liver, cydonia and Jerusalem artichokes. As I was on my own I opted for bottled beers rather than wine and the host chose a couple of lovely examples to match my food.

A truly memorable experience that was also incredibly good value.

One of the best meals we have had. We had local lamb, local deer and duck liver. Side dishes were very unusual and delicious! A very creative chef. We would highly recommend this restaurant. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food

I ate here with colleagues on a business trip. I little bit of a splurge, but not fantastically expensive. Considering the general cost for dining out in Sweden, this is a well-priced "fancy" restaurant.

We walked in without a reservation, but the host sat the three of us despite the fact that he had a big party coming in 45 min. We promised to be quick, but he wouldn't hear of it. Service was well paced, and discreet. As it was a very cold night, we lingered a bit over wine and dessert.

We had the moose, which was a small portion...good thing, because it is a very rich meat.

I wouldn't make this my regular place, but if you are looking for a quiet dinner on a relaxing night out, this might be a place for you.
