Tried here for the first time the other week. My friend was not a virgin to Scandinavian food and was very impressed with the food. Service was friendly. We both had the mushroom on toast. Very tasty. Would definitely go here again and try other dishes.

Scandinavian restaurant in Macclesfield? What a great idea! Impeccable service (Was it really one of the waitresses first day? Both ladies were fantastic, warm, friendly and attentive, and extremely helpful...). Food was excellent. Really didn't need the cheeseboard after the soup and stew, but glad I did. Great all round experience and very highly recommended.

Such a treat! I have enjoyed numerous visits here, whether it was having a drink with friends or sitting down for a meal. The atmosphere is lovely and the host and hostess are truly inspirational and down to earth. Favourite dish was meatballs and sauce! Delish!

Keep doing an amazing job!!

1st time here , booked following the excellent reviews , we were not disappointed . Excellent prompt service by friendly staff , short menu but everything was appealing . Started with salmon which was enough to share , this was accompanied with pickled vegetables of which the flavour was perfect . Had venison and meatballs both of which were well presented and tasted gorgeous . Good wine list and selection of beers and Swedish ciders . Illy coffee too . Had apple pie as dessert , again was lovely . Can't recommend highly enough , a great asset to macclesfield

Went in on Valentines day. We hadn't booked a table as we weren't planning on going out but had a last minute change of plans. We managed to grab a last minute table at the bar and I'm so glad we did.
We were served by Elvis, who was an attentive host.
The place is very clean, and the toilets are great.
I had the veggie meatballs. As a meat eater, I was worried that I would be left disappointed but this is not the case. They are spectacular. My dining partner, who had the meatballs, was even trying to swap with me! They are amazing.
The drinks were great, I love that they sell Prosecco by the glass.
Would definitely visit again.
