Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A culinary delight that tickles your taste buds and provides you with new insights. A must is the flounder, Hiramasa, sweet bread and potato bread. A must for food lovers but not Instagram fanatics

We had intended on dining at Host but missed our booking time. They kindly booked us in to dine at U Formel. We were so glad they did. Not only was it located behind our hotel it was a fab dining experience. After much deliberation...(and regret over the crisps we nibbled at happy hour earlier) we opted for the 7 course set menu with matching wines. And despite feeling like we were going to explode we are so glad we did. Each dish was delicious. Special mention for the Zander fish dish. As we were seated near the kitchen we got to watch plating which was fascinating and added to our experience. I highly recommend this restaurant but don’t snack before you go is my only tip.More

This restaurant has delicious food, great service and I really enjoyed the music and general vibe. We came in for an early dinner and every course we had was perfection, and the Chablis (even the entry point bottle) was a perfect accompaniment. Many thanks to...all the team in making us feel so comfortable and welcomeMore

The restaurant next door turned us away, so we stopped by at UFormel almost on accident. From the second we walked in, the UFormel staff treated us like family and did everything in their power to make our experience fantastic. The food and drinks were...outstanding. Every last person in our party of six proclaimed this the best restaurant experience OF OUR LIVES. So glad we got turned away from the other place! Wonderful things sometimes happen that way! It wasn’t cheap but it was worth every cent. The details such as the amazing smelling lotion in the bathrooms were also a plus.More

We chose the 4 course dinner. All dishes were excellent and positive surprised. I mostly loved the crab,and their version of a beef tartare which was seasoned to perfection. We also had the matching wines, and sure they did match. One of the best diners...I ever had.More

An incredible experience!! we had the set 4 course menu and despite arguing our way through the entire evening (apparently he didn’t know my eye colour after 4 years of being together) we had a wonderful time! Mattius went above and beyond, his service was...impeccable and explained all the food and wine as we went. Great atmosphere, very relaxed we were allowed to go for fags outside. Best time ever, thank you!More

Good restaurant with a nice atmosphere. However, the acustics are quite horrible, so the noise level is high. We had The Uformel Experience (see picture), and especially the two first courses were good. We were going for the wine menu, but were scared off by...the waitress who informed us that it cost more than 800 kr. Then she made a calculation in her head and added that the total would then be around 1375 kr. We were totally surprised by this and thus chose to go with a bottle instead. Later, we found out by simply checking the menu at the internet that she was wrong. The wine menu including water would have cost 425 kr. I could have given 4 tripadvisor stars, but with such unprofessional service, we remain at 3.More

I chose The Uformel experience with 5 dishes. I loved the langoustine sauce which was served with the cod. I also enjoyed the dessert. The location is great and the restaurant in itself is very cosy.

A mixed experience, I would like to share with you (and the restaurant). Let me start by saying that the food was fantastic – unfortunately my wife ad I had only a short time for dinner, hence; I couldn’t go for the set menu and...had choose from the menu. Fresh oysters (I can still taste them…) and mallard – tender and very juicy, Uformel you nailed it. The restaurant is located centrally and with easy access. Unfortunately, I would also have to share the full experience, ie. staff only showing limited interest in a small company (my wife and I) but lots more attention to the bigger companies. Further, when you order from the menu and not the set menu you are not entitled to a piece of bread as an appetiser. The wine list was a delight to read, but then again, my wife and I had a limited time, so I picked a ‘wine by glass’. When my wife arrived the waiter politely asked her if she also wanted a glass of wine, and not if she wanted the same as I had which she got – it should be noted that there was a choice of 5-6 wine offered by the glass. My wife ordered a second glass, and the waiter politely asked me if I wanted ‘a top up’ to which I replied, yes please. It should be noted that the glass was not empty, hence; I thought what a good gesture, especially given the price level of the restaurant. Anyway, when receiving the bill, I was charged for a full glass….The wine was extremely cold, but the wine improved a lot when being warmed up! This kind of white wine should not be served at 5C degree. I’m sorry to say but we will not visit you again…More

Amazing food and great service! We had the “En uformel oplevelse” which was truly amazing. The Hamachi was maybe one of the best appetizers I have ever had. We had a couple of pescatarians in the party, and there were no problems changing the dishes....I had the turbot instead of the lamb, and it was so good I almost felt like closing my eyes to get the full experience. Our waitress was extremely helpful and very attentive to our needs. All in all a great experience! Would highly recommend.More

Nothing to write home about .. The dishes were not bad and some of them were definitely above average (though not delicious) but the portions were tiny and the prices exorbitant… Taking into account the terrible attitude of an arrogant and unfriendly waiter (as opposed...to the one who welcomed us upon arrival) there is no wonder why a Friday evening the restaurant was not full .More

In general, the food it’s nice, with some lazy solutions to improve flavour (ex: oyster sauce in the tartar). Good wine pairing. But the piece the resistance, the lamb, has a flaw in the conception: a sauce that is so liquid that takes over the...plate and soaks the salad, hindering its freshness.
