“Very good show but also very little”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

When we left the restaurant Vrå after a three and a half hour dinner we joked about that we needed a magnifying glass to really see everything that was served.
Lucky enough it was a six course dinner so we could keep away from buying something extra on the way home.
But the show and the service was excellent and that is what I at least remembered best.
Let’s take it from the beginning. We were a group of about fifteen people having the six course dinner at Vrå.
Their style is Japanese but using Swedish ingredients especially a lot of fish and shellfish.
We had for example a course with one! prawn first pealed of, cut in slices, put back into the shell and then finally gratinated.
It tasted lovely and looked very well. The final piece was Swedish beef which we all longed for.
When it came it was four slices of about 20 grams in total, excellent but so tiny.
The best thing was the beverages and the waiter describing all the history around it.
Three different Sakes, Japanese beer from a small exclusive brewery.
Tea served in a glass pot and when served the waiter turned a time glass to be sure that it was correct brewed.
To summarize, very interesting, a real show, we learnt much about Japanese drinks but had wanted some more to eat.
