    The food was really good and different. Not the kind of cousine you normally find in Barcelona. It's quite an experience. I recommend the smoked salmon and reindeer.

    The buffet had a lot of cold options. For dinner I would have liked to have warm meal. The dishes from the menu were uniquely decorated.

    Food excellent (Christmas buffet), quality, variety of dishes and quantity. Nice place with nice Christmas decoration. The only bad thing for us is seating. The place is small and for 3 people you get a 2 people table. Besides, it's our second year we go for Christmas, and we've bee given the same table, which is quite badly located (almost in the middle of the way to the buffet). We've also been there out of the Christmas season, the food is also great, and no problem with seating. It's a really good restaurant, we'll go again.

    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!
