Description: In Åre you'll find this old hunting lodge reminiscent of the end of the nineteenth century, but which is now home to the Villa Totebo restaurant. The open fire in the dining room spreads warmth and the bar lights up in the winter gloom. The menu contains the best of modern European cooking, with inspiration from other parts of the world as well. The kitchen uses by choice ingredients from Jämtland and other regions in northern Sweden. There are also set menus and a party menu.

“Very nice restaurant with excellent food in the heart of Are!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

If you're in this Restaurant in the heart of Are (next to the train station) you fell like you sit in a living room of a Swedish home. It is very cosy and the food is excellent. The restaurant serves local food and have an open kitchen and friendly staff. If you're looking foor a cheap restaurant, you should look for another place. But if you like good food and a nice ambiente, you should definitely go to this restaurant. Pre-booking necessary as it looked quite busy.

“Very good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

If you want to have a good dinner in Åre, this is the place.

We where there on a quit busy monday evening (considering there was only one waitress), but we where seated right away and our waitress took our drink order.

Even though she had other guests to attent to, she patientlly explaint us the things from the meny we did not understand in Swedish.

The bread they served while you are waiting was, i guess, homemade and very good. But than our main courses came, and they where heavenly. Here was just one little mistake by the waitress. She placed the dishes wrong in front off us. My order went to my wife and vice versa, but since we intended to share anyway, no problem.

At the end off our dinner, and closer to closing time, we had to wait a bit for our waitress, since she was busy with things in the back, but overall it was a very nice evening.

“Fine dining Åre, jämtland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Lodge Tottebo (Villa Tottebo) is a must if you like fine dining the traditional Swedish way. The kitchen is always on there toes to deliver first class meals. Unfortunately the service level do not match the excellent chefs. Unneccesary mistakes happens from time to time.

Nice wine selection, flexible and very affordable taste menu. Good kids menu! Reservations are recommended.

“Fine dining using local ingredients”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Great tasting menu including marinated grouse, raindeer filet, locally produced cheese, and icecream with cloudberries. Excellent wine list, cosy atmosphere, and friendly but a bit inexperienced service staff
