This restaurant /bar has the potential to be something great. The location is very good but the service is severely lacking. The atmosphere appears comfortable and quaint upon entering. However, there was no one to greet you and no apparent hostess station. We went to the bar and asked if we should seat ourselves. The answer was yes and the server came promptly after we selected our table. We asked for bread service while we waited for our meal. It was presented nicely in a small basket and came with condiments of butter and shredded parm. I ordered risotto with shrimp and smoked salmon. It was topped with greens and shaved zucchini and other vegetables. It was a lovely presentation but the dish was overwhelmingly salted. My
partner's chicken risotto dish had the same salty problem. Neither of us could finish the meal. We had to ask for our check and we did share with the server the problem with the saltiness. They could have been great dishes. We had been watching the Denmark vs Germany soccer game while dining, however, their connection was lost completely after awhile. I believe anyone would be better off going somewhere else for a meal.

We were placed in the "bar" room, which might be a reason why we were overlooked most of the time? We had severe trouble to get the attention of a waiter, and had to go our selves to order dessert at the bar. When in contact the personel was very nice. The chockolate cake was very,very dry. The food - fish was very good, and so was the wine. We did not get any water. Seemed as they had good pizza, we will try this another time. The athmosphere was although very nice and the prices was very nice. Worth another try next time! Hope that the waiters will come around and remember to pay attention to their customers!

We went to this restaurant twice because we had a large group, and they were very accommodating. Fun wait staff and outstanding, super reasonably priced food.

My friend and I were for a one-day trip to Goteburg from Denmark. When we wanted something to eat, we saw this nice looking restaurant called SENCE, and the decor indside was very cosy, but that's also the only positive thing I have to say about the place. When we entered the restatutant, there were to waiters just standing there, but none of them greeted os, we had to find both table and menu ourselves. Though we sat next to the bar, none of them came to take our order, and we even had to get up and find our drinks ourselves. We also gave our order at the bar, since they did not some to us, and after 30 min. We had the two lasagna for 145 skr each. served by the waiter (WHO KNEW THEY ACTUALLY WORKED!!) but she did not give us knives and forks, this we had to get ourselves AGAIN! And then the food... both of them were without taste, just plain boring, and since it only took 10 min to finish the dish (it should have been listed as a kids menu!) we quickly paid and left with a feeling of hunger and despair. We might as well have been in a Macdonalds, since it was all SELF-SERVICE, overpriced and we were still hungry. I will NEVER set my food in that place again, and i will never recommened it to others, unless they want to be dissapointed!

We tried this restaurant because it was the only one still open at 21.30.
Had to ask the waiter attention a couple of times before he listened to us even if we were in front of him.
We ordered a caesar salar and a tenderloin steak. The steak was anything but tender, full of fat and almost drowned in a strange broth, the potatoes were hard. The salad's chicke should have bene crispy but it was cold, the bread was stale, even the coke wasn't sparkling.
The waiters weren't cordial at all, we were at a table near the kitchen and they kept putting stuff near our head
