We had high expectations being told by locals that this was the best in town. We were nevertheless impressed. We had their three course meny with for us unknown dishes. We so enjoyed every dish.

My wife and I had dinner here on a busy night, and everything was fantastic. The menu is small but very diverse so we had no trouble finding dishes we wanted to order. The staff was very helpful and professional.

We were at Hörnet on a wednesday evening without reservation and had a really great evening! The staff was super friendly and gave good advice on our wine/ drink questions. Everything we ate was just absolutely delicious. Always worth a detour 😉

I ate here two nights in a row because I enjoyed the first night so much. All the food was excellently prepared—cooked just right and fresh. I had four dishes over two nights: three were very exciting with interesting juxtaposition of flavors and textures. There...were pickled vegetables and fruit mixed in with the dishes that added pops of flavor, crunchy bits of vegetables, and creamy purées/sauces judiciously applied (nothing got smothered by sauce). The dishes: steak tartare with semi-dried golden beets, fried capers, smoked egg yolks, and crunchy kale; frittata with portobello mushrooms, carrot purée, roasted carrots, and a kind of carrot leather. There were also lightly pickled unripe currants that were fantastic. Finally, cod with broccoli, perfectly cooked. The fourth dish, fried feta with kimchi was excellent, but not as exciting. Reservations are important, I ate there in late March, and it was booked. This restaurant is in one of my top three favorite restaurants in the world: one’s in Tokyo and the second is in Lisbon.More

My wife and I stopped here during a stay in Vadstena. This is one of the finest restaurants I have ever visited. My wife says the duck breast was the best she has ever had. The prime rib of elk was simply mouth watering. The...staff is outstanding and the presentation beyond belief. A cozy, inviting atmosphere. We will return. I would highly recommend this establishment for a fine evening meal!More

Dined here on a free evening during a bike tour, and we were astounded. Such attention to detail! The bread/spread presentation was creative an delicious, as was the entire meal. Hubby had the char fish dish and I had the tofu with artichokes and mushes...and other lovely ingredients. Nice wines to accompany, a complex and incredible rhubarb compote/goat cheese/white chocolate/mint dessert with coffee to finish. Yes, $$$, but worth every cent with creative, modern cuisine and knowledgeable, gracious and helpful staff. One of the highlights of our visit to Sweden. Thank you!More

From the outside this place looks like a small restaurant but once inside there are quite a few tables and the outside area has seating for around 30 people. The menu is fairly small but changes regularly (it had only changed the day before we...went). The starters were beautifully done with some very interesting flavour combinations that worked brilliantly. The mains were well executed but the flavours didn't quite work - there was far too much going on in the dishes which meant they didn't quite come off. The desserts however were another matter - absolutely stunning. Without fail the staff were friendly and helpful - the young chef explained that the rhubarb came from her mother's garden and she picked all the herbs herself for the dishes. Definately worth a visit and I would love to go back again.More

Most restaurants in the area have more or less the same menue year after year. Röding and Fläskfilé ( fish and pork) and then there are the numerous Pizza restaurants of course. Hörnet in Vadstena has a totally different menue with special dishes. 5 different...starters and 3 Main dishes plus desserts. We have now tried them all except for the desserts. All dishes are based on high quality raw materials , cooked and presented in a very tasteful way. One alternative to starter and main dish is to take 2-3 starters as Tapas. The dishes are not really " child friendly" but I think they also do separate foods for children. I heard other tables order pasta etc. The service is quick and kind. All in all this is a nice restaurant and different from many others. It is usually full and reservations is needed. Pretty good value for money.More

We went here a bit late in the evening after an opera at the castle. We decided to have a light meal and ordered the starters for a sharing dinner. What a nice surprise! They were creative and very tasty. And presented and served in...a very pretty way. The buffala mozzarella plate was extraordinary good and nice! The place has an ok selection of wines by the glass. Service was good and we had a very good evening. You should book ahead. Highly recommended!More
