Our family reunion lunched here and were not disappointed. Great breads, wonderful appetizers, followed by a huge and delicious salmon main, was highly appreciated by our large group. The dessert had the richest ice cream on the planet. Great service only added to the appeal.

Smakbyn (Taste Village) was founded by young award winning chef Mikael Björklund who wanted a restaurant of his own where he could do things his way.

Simply prepared simple food, but so very tasty. Lovely setting next to the castle and water only adds to the appeal of this restaurant.

We had lunch in Smakby on a rainy day and the food lifted our spirit immidiately. Fish was cooked to a perfection and meat was cooked slowly so it melted in your mouth. Extremely good food for a good price!
