“Ambitious menu, home fare standard”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

The food:
The menu is very ambitious with local ingredients. However, the standard of the food is not as high. Don't get me wrong, it was good enough, but I was expecting more after reading the menu.

The staff:
Very helpfull staff. Not all that knowledgeable about types of beer, but made up for it in smiles.

The atmosphere:
Nice enough. But nothing out of the ordinary.

To summarize. Good home fare style food. Not sure if I'd return, but then again, I don't know what other options there are in Karlstad.

“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

Nice restaurant serving good wholesome fare.

Typically relaxed - turn up in the snow with boots and thick jackets and they won't bat an eyelid about your attire!

“Munken, a gem of a restaurant hidden in the Stadshotellet complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

A little difficult to find within the hotel building, the Munken restaurant is located at street level in the back of the hotel, facing a pedestrian only shopping street. It offers inside seating in a cozy, classy ambiance and covered sidewalk seating as well. Attentive wait staff presented and patiently explained the menu with its extensive selection of food items including a favorite of ours, venison. A three herring selection appetizer started us off, followed by excellently prepared main course and a superb desert. Wine by the glass was of very good quality. While not inexpensive, but what is in Scandinavia, dinner in the Munken Restaurang is a nice way to end the day.
