I was here last week for a work event. Lunch was fine - or at least typical for Sweden, in that it was buffet-style with tasty but boring dishes centered around salad and potatoes. Dinner, however, was the worst meal I have ever eaten. The vegan option I was served began with near-frozen bits of some kind of soy based creme fraiche with potato chips and capers. The main course was a square of polenta, which contained about as much salt as the water in the Stockholm archipelago. That's also ALL there was: a square of polenta. We asked the waiter for anything else - bread, potato, vegetables - and he told us no. Dessert was at least edible, consisting of a small serving of fruit with one spoonful of sorbet - how original and filling.

What can I say? Beside that nothing was out of the ordinary or even ordinary?
The service bad. When asked about the drinking options the servers offer only two. The food was too little for all the guests. Some of it was for less than half the number. The sweets where no sweets - nothing sweet used to make them. And most of them without any taste. The hot food was cold and very little. No option for the vegetariens.
Mostly a really bad dinner.

We came here late in the afternoon after visiting the nearby abba museum. There was a brunch buffet, tasty soup, decent meats and great desserts. A good enough lunch.
