“Superb...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

A colleague and I took some potential clients to Fond last night, we were looked after from the minute we arrived by very friendly professional staff. The wine list is extensive and we chose an old Portugese favourite, the food is first class and presented beautifully. The Chef is very attentive and an enjoyable welcoming character. Go there.
Ps. We got the deal we were looking for and now have new clients!

“Elegant cuisine, beautiful venue, excellent service and a well thought out wine offering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

We went for dinner at Fond, which was busy on a Monday night. A good sign. Lovely setting, food was superb, with good fresh produce and flavour pairings which made sense, whilst still having an air of adventure (e.g Duckling breast, fried in cinnamon with a terrine of duckling leg, liver and dried apple. Braised kohlrabi, soured cider sauce and overcooked Boulangère potatoes, fried in duck fat.) This is not always the case with Michelin starred restaurants, where flavours often clash and you can feel like a guinea pig being tested on by an over-adventurous chef.
Each dish had a suggested wine style pairing (e.g. the duck was suggested with a rhone wine from Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre), which is great for those who get lost in wine lists. Furthermore, on looking for the by the glass list I was happily told that any wine costing under 600SEK could be served by the glass, meaning a good range of options at you disposal.
Service was spot-on: Prompt, professional and friendly,
Well worth the price and definitely worth seeking a visit. I will be back when next in Goteborg.

“Quality gourmet dinner and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

This is one of the very best restaurants in Gothenburg. The quality of the food and the competent service make for an enjoyable dinner at an excellent location.
The wine selection and sommelier guidance are perfect.
As expected for this level of quality, be prepared to pay a rather expensive price.
Still, a great place for an elegant dinner
