This place in underground, so don't go there for outdoor dining or scenery. It used to be a large underground cellar/vault. It is decorated very nice - Victorian. Almost felt like I was in a 1920's High Society Speakeasy. The menu is pre-arranged into 5-7 course menus. Price was high, but that is typical for Sweden. The food was superior. A real treat. It does close Sunday's and holidays, etc. So check out the hours of operation if you are traveling to go here.

My first visit to this restaurant was when I was a child in the 60s. I've been back quite regularly since then, with a couple of years in between, but I've never been disappointed. This is a place you can count on for traditional food and restaurant values! The location is a bit odd, down in a vaulted celler under an ordinary building and that's propably why it's not better known to tourists. It's not trendy at all and tries to look medieval (which it's not) but it has the feeling of an upper class German "Bierstube" gone Swedish. The food is traditonal and well cooked, nothing new or fancy but comforting and tasty. I just love this place!

My 5 colleagues and I had a 2-course dinner at Master Gudmunds Kallare and I certainly recommend the restaurant to all who values a good steak and local/traditional cooking.
We had various dishes but all of us found the food (salmon carpaccio, chanterelle soup, garlic bruscetta, deer roastbeef, fish, steak etc) very delicious and well-prepared.
The waiter was very friendly, and together with the nice cellar-and-candlelight setting this experience made us forget about the rain and autumn-cold outside.
The red wine and local beer was also good.

Just passing by Jonkoping. This restaurant was the first one on Lonely Planet's list. They offered Sunday family meal - salad buffet ja two choises for a main course, lax and pork. Sounds good you think but was not! Never tasted so dry lax. It was obviously prepared hours before and now just placed on the plate with rubber potatoes. If we had seen the salad buffet before seated we would have walked away - how can you get tomatos and peas look so gray and dead? Dessert cake was more or less okay. And service was very good I must say.
