Had a burrata which was great and pork neck which was amazing. Music is great and staff are super friendly. Craft pale ale on tap was a big plus! Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our business dinner here. The restaurant is laid-back and atmospheric, and there's a hipsterish vibe to the place. We had the tasting menu, which was very good -- the pizza and the tapas plates being the highlights. Very friendly staff.

We enjoyed very much the friendly service by Lisa. She was very attentive and naturally friendly. The taste of the food was good (lamb, sole, pizza). But one dish is not really enough for one person. Atmosphere is good, young crowd.

Really excellent meal and very reasonable especially for Sweden. 3 of us had 6 dishes (plus olives) for around $60 each. Everything was beautifully done and incredibly tasty. Make sure you make a reservation

Great atmosphere and decor. Excellent staff, relaxed, attentive, friendly and service minded. We chose four smaller dishes to share. The thing here is they were cooked to perfection and my boyfriend was impressed, but it wasn’t “my thing”. Meaning the combination mushroom-lamb did work amazing,...More

Did you mention the restaurant's name in your review? Because I tried that, and the name is viewed as a curse word. So when I removed the name my review was approved 😊
