    Amazing food! It’s not just for people that enjoy Sweedish food, is for people that enjoy good ingredients cooked incredibly. Going back soon!

    Great quality food, super friendly owner. Would definitely visit again. If you go, try the 'Swedish gold', the chanterelles, they are delicious.

    We've eaten a la carte here (they also have buffet). Great service, a super nice and enthusiastic owner, and really good tasting food. The portions are really well sized and are priced fairly. Would definitely recommend others to go here!

    We found this restaurant by chance but it was an incredible surprise! Cosy atmosphere, it seems to be in a Swedish home, large menu and choice. We tried "reno ahumado" and "alce" that were delicious! The quality of the food is really high!

    Wow, can´t believe it took me this long to discover this wonderful place! The food is incredible; I had a lunch buffet, followed by some really good chicken skewers. Price for buffet plus the main dish is only 16 euros (a drink is included, as well as a dessert buffer) - you might think it's a little too expensive for lunch menu. but hey, you have an unlimited count of raids to the buffet, and those pates they have were really-really tasty! Overall, if you want a little rest from standard menu del dia fare, this is a good option. I would also assume the place is an excellent choice for a casual dinner with friends, which I most certainly will try soon as well!
