This is indeed a very upscale restaurant. The service was terrific. The ambiance is over the top. Because it was part waiter service part buffet it would be hard to comment on the regular menu items, but we certainly liked the buffet. We went nuts...More

It is 20 years since I ate at the Operakallaren and my memory did not deceive. It was great. Despite a large crowd of us for Christmas dinner, the service was impeccable, cheerful and friendly. After a bouche t'amuse of spiced cabbage and sauce, there...More

This institution is, as such, well worth visiting. But if you are looking for contemporary food and interior design, don’t go. Service is ok, the interior is a bit dusty and the traditional food is acceptable. The reason for going is the fact that nothing...More
