Spent one evening in Varberg and decided to go to the beach and try Johns Place. It was a good decision and we definitely enjoyed our dinner. Excellent service!

We had Pluma, which is the neck of a small pig type, but the menu has many courses I would like to try. Venison, lamb filet, filet of beef++. We were recommended... More

We spent a pleasant hour or so at John's Place on a bright but windy afternoon and were able to find a nice sheltered corner on the terrace. We didn't have a meal so can't really comment on the food. They did their best to accommodate my cousin's grandchildren (4 & 7) and there certainly wasn't any problem with them... More

We were there in a group for dinner. The place is just beside the sea. Pretty ok but not amazing! I'm not sure if there is a parking place beside! We parked our cars in #Apelviken parking and walked for 5-10min. Nice and polite staff, little forced me to order a drink (asked me several times to order, I said... More

The best meat I ever tasted. So delicious and well made. You eat with a great view over "Apelviken". Try their lamb, fantastic. Only downside is the lack of different beers. A restaurant this good need to have a better assortment.

This cosy, informal beach restaurant with all the effects around the place welcomed us all and served a very tasty and professional meal. I had deer filet from the grill and it was a big piece of meat and perfectly done. Good... More

John's Place is for me THE place on Varbergs beaches. The restaurant is directly situated on the beach with a lovely terras. It is a pleasure to sit there and enjoy a nice drink or one of their wonderful dishes. The atmosphere is marvelous and yep..the prices are a bit high but the quality is perfect!

Excellent food. I mean, really, properly outstanding food, simply done with no frills, airs or graces. If I could afford it I would eat here every night of the week. But no one can replace their wardrobe every 10 days.

John's Place is the best restaurant in the area and it is terrific in every way: very delicious food, friendly, competent service (plus the courses arrive at just the right time), great ambiance inside plus an elegantly appointed deck outside, and a fabulous beach front location. We've been three times this summer with various friends and family and it is... More
