Bak has a beautiful surrounding and view on the Ij. There is no a la carte menu. Wines are pricey. After indicating to desire a mineral, fresh one, we were offered woody or sour ones. The main caloric intake came from the bread. Dishes were...More

Bak knows what’s important now: seasonal food, locally grown or caught and no commercial animal husbandry. It’s fresh and innovative, aervice pleasant, atmosphere relaxed. Only downside: €€€

I so wanted to like this place but really didn't. The food is ok. Nothing wow or great but nice food but you pay way too much for what you get. The rest was a complete let down. We took the (again very pricey) wine...More

First finding the restaurant is not as difficult as many have written about it. The taxi/uber delivered us to the building & there was a flag/sign for the restaurant. Once you go inside the building there's more signs to take the elevator upstairs. The restaurant...More
