Fridolfs is a given every time I visit Halmstad. For my wife and I there's no dicussion, it's by far the best restaurant in town if one takes everything into consideration, quality of food, value, service, atmosphere etc.
This is a restaurant with modern cuisine meaning cross cooking and food that really teases your taste buds, the only difference with other chic, modern restaurants is that in Fridolfs they make sure that you don't leave hungry which honestly sometimes happens in other places. It's a mix of a class restaurant and grandma's cooking, they keep on feeding you.
Unfortunately I have to say that the last time I visited Fridols they had recently changed the menu and neither my wife nor I was specially inspired of what was proposed as starters. That is of course the fault of my personal taste and not the restaurant but I do think that a safe bet for a restaurant is to ensure that all tastes will find something on the menu tempting.
The restaurant itself is very nice, two floors with stone walls and dark wood and an overall almost "librarish" feel to it. It is perfectly suited for a nice romantic dinner or for a group of friends, it suits all occasions really. If you get the chance, ask for a table on the second floor though, in that way you also avoid sitting near the entrance where the smokers go in and out between dishes, just like any other restaurant in the country...
Anyway, definitely a must when in Halmstad, no question.
