We had eaten indifferent food at the harbour front, but just before a lunch-time departure we discovered G Swensons Krog. Lovely sunny location beside the former historical church site, we enjoyed a warm welcome, efficient service and well prepared food. Set us up for our journey, a real treat. Recommended.

TOREKOV sounds like it should be hanging off a Russian peninsular somewhere but in fact is a beautiful unspoilt & charming beach resort in southern Sweden. Swensons restaurant was an absolute gem. An unadulterated delight. The staff and food were both fab. The fish soup, the artichoke soup, the cod dish ... Oh food is truly one of the delights... More

I ate here twice as part of a wedding weekend, once for dinner and once for brunch (they also catered the wedding food - also very yummy). While on both occasions food was not from the menu but had already been selected given the large number of guests, all of the food was fresh and very well-cooked, and was very... More

This Sunday Torekov town was apparently not prepared for great weather and masses of people who wanted to dine. Yet G Swensons Krog was able to have us, plus being very friendly. The menu is a bit too traditional for my taste, but then again, it was great to sit on the verandah looking out at the square and the... More

The restaurant is situated in central Torekov with possibility to dine both out- and indoor. The menu contains a variety of food but mainly Scandinavian. The food is well prepared and tasty! Nice and helpful waiters!

It's a lovely restaurant in the heart of town and always full. The food is lovely and the staff are really friendly. Casual mixed with upper class, and it works just fine. A little overpriced though.

I revisited Swenssons at a nice autumn day to enjoy the season to pass by in Torekov. I still have good memories of the food and good company here and I am sure I will visit them again, next year. For me, they have the best food, created of pure local products.

We stay in Torekov every summer for more than 25 years and have also visited this establishment once every summer the last years. But no more. It has always been over priced and the last years also pretentious. This is probably because the place is targeting the "nouveau riches" type of visitors primarily from the Stockholm area and expats, visiting... More

An oasis of quality in the Torekov culinary scene, Swensons remains a safe bet. The homey ambiance and fresh decor creates a space that is welcoming and befitting to all, from beach bums to the occasional A list celebrity. The food is elegant without being overly complicated, and is so fresh you get the sense that a local farmer came... More
