“Superb meat restaurant in Boden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

In this old house you get the best meat you can eat. Try it with their peppersauce. It´s delicous.

“If it wasn't for the sauce”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

Panelen is known for it's one main attraction, Pepper Sauce. And they do that well. Sadly, the rest of the experience doesn't live up to the same high point. The food is ok, not earth shattering, or especially good value, but ok. Service is where this restaurant falls down. Specifically, speed of taking orders, and speed in serving the food. That's enough to make me walk 100m up the road to a more professional establishment, albeit without the pepper sauce.

Often one orders at the bar. During our last visit (and it will be our last) we were kept waiting at the bar by a person, who we later learnt was the owner, for about 10 minutes. When another person finally emerged from the kitchen, we were told to go to a table and someone would come and take our order. Why the owner could not have told us that herself 10 minutes earlier remains a mystery. After 15 minutes sitting at a table, we went in search of the ellusive waiter/ess. Finally tracking one down, we were told that it would be a further 30 minutes before any food would be delivered. We decided not to wait around to see how accurate the estimate was. Looking around the restaurant it was maybe 50% full, so being overworked clearly wasn't an issue. Fortunately Boden has some new restaurants who are proving to be much more customer focused. Panelen has had a good run in Boden but needs to lift it's game in a modern era. People expect more.

“Good steak but awful hamburger”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2011

We visited Panelen after a day at Western Farm.
Ordered a steak and a burger, and sausage and pancakes for the kids.
The pepper steak was great and the fries was very good. The kids liked their food as well.
My wife's burger was however a disaster.
That a restaurant that have such good steaks, do not have a home made burger with some nice belongings to is remarkable. The burger was frozen made and only with bottle hamburger dressing and onion. No cheese and no lettuce. She wished that we gone to Max instead.

“Unfriendly staff and you...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2008

Unfriendly staff and you have to order at the counter like in a fast food restaruant. Servings are big though, and the taste is ok.. so that brings the score up to a 2.
