“Very wannabe posh restaurant”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 via mobile

Very wannabe posh restaurant, the only thing they managed was to do was to keep the portions small and expensive:( good taste but no so good that they disguise the lack of food... No value for money if you are hungry...

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

For a restaurant that is only open during a few short months of summer, I am impressed. This is gourmet eating. I really hope this restaurant will go all out and remain open all year.

“Great food in great location, but go early”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

We had dinner here both Friday and Saturday during the same weekend. The first one was perfect, the second not. The problem is that this very nice restaurant turns into a nightclub arond 2300. After this there are people standing everywhere, normal conversations around the table are impossible, and the otherwise very nice staff get more interested in serving drinks than to take care of dinner guests.
The night club is even a nice one with good live music, but this is of course difficult to combine with a gourmet restaurant.

“Fantastic restaurant, exiting food - as good as it gets!”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

We, a family of four, had a six course dinner with wine-package. Fantastic, challenging dinner in a marvelous setting! Mostly seafood, but also one meat dish (blood-dove). Everything perfectly composed and cooked.
The biggest surprise was a fried egg dish with bacon, blackroot and a Hollandaise sauce - wow!
Slight timing problems, food was served before the wine at one occasion - very minor!
When the dinner was over (nobody rushed us), the place was transformed into a cosy piano-bar.
Don't miss this place when in Smogen!
