Really enjoyed everything about this restaurant - the food, the service, the atmosphere. We had the Smörgåsbord, which offered a great range of dishes to try and was always kept full - nothing ran out. All the dishes were explained to us, and the service...More

The Swedish smorgasbord (buffet meal) was absolutely delicious! Each single dish (with many to choose from) was perfectly seasoned and the taste was so full it was hard to resist! Me and my husband were amazed by the cuisine. We recommend this Swedish restaurant to...More

The place was really cozy and the staff extremely helpful. Slightly pricey, but worth it. Either the the Swedish style "tapas" to share or the full dishes are just as good. Definitely worth a try!

I went for Christmas lunch for 35 euros - then you need to pay for drinks- The food was okay but nothing special- So would not go again. Maybe worth it if you are missing Swedish food!

Lot's of Swedish tapas and traditional deserts. During the month of December rather than menu they offer a buffet with Swedish Christmas food which is an amazing experience that I strongly recommend all of you. Staff is very friendly but overhelmed. Booking a seat is...More

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
