“Gott och annorlunda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Was here with three friends of mine, and it was very good food, and the staff was very friendly. If you like to try different cuisine than the "usual western food", this restaurant is really a recommendation for you!

So gather a group of friends, go here, and enjoy the food and drinks that Messob has to offer you, and your tastebuds!

“Must visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Husband and I went for our DATE dinner. Great service. Great food. Out of this world dessert. Food is a little on the expensive side and less in quantity for the amount charged, so you might not want to do this very often. The menu had enough options for vegetarians.

“Brilliant eating experience and wonderful food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Eating unusual food is an experience, and Messob provides just that.
Our waiter made recommendations, taught us how to eat using the bread and with our hands. He explained their policy on alcohol (they have it, but do not recommend it with the food as it ruins the taste somewhat). He was prompt with taking our orders.
In addition to this, I went with a very large group of colleagues which can be stressful for waiting staff and make payment a nightmare. But at Messob this was no problem. Our food all arrived together and hot, the payment was broken down for each of us when we went to pay at the till.

Not only is the food beautiful in it's simplicity and the service helpful and effective, but the portion sizes are also good. Some people on the table were a little disappointed but as you are eating bread with every mouthful it's actually very filling. I was full after my portion.

They can cater to allergies and special diets as much as possible and have a lot of veg options.

“Good taste but small volume of dish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

We ordered two main (chicken and vegetarian)and a beer. The food tasted great but we think the volume was a bit small. Nice decor, very relaxing and good service. We found the dish spicy, :) speaking from a point of view of Swedish taste bud. It is a nice place for any occasion. We recommend it over all.

“Friendly place and good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

The first thing I've noticed was the welcoming, polite and friendly atmosphere. I liked the food there, especially if you consider the price. It was good to try.
