We arrived to the restaurant in a group of 20 people and had our meal pre-ordered in advance. It took the kitchen 1 hour 40 minutes to serve us anything except for the bread and wine! They never apologised or offered anything as an excuse...More

I've been here many times but thought it was time to spread the word. Most recently for drinks and then a conference dinner (julbord). The restaurant has a lounge section with sofas and low tables, which merges into a more formal dining area. All of...More

Very nice food. Modern cooking combined with local and traditional ingredients and dishes. Ecological alternative with nice wine list. Friendly personnel and good service. Quite cheap. The local downstairs, not very elegant.

13 of us went here for an early dinner. The atmosphere was terrific--you have the sense that you are in an upscale cellar. The presentation of the food was fun (e.g. the butter for the bread was served on top of small stones). I had...More

The menu had several choices that sounded interesting, making it tough to decide. The dishes were delicious, presented beautifully, and organic, with wine suggestions for those who wanted it. The cloudberry dessert is a must-have. Service was courteous.

I had a lamb burger. A piece of food I don't think you should be able to fail but it was dry, completely over cooked and uninspiring. The menu was promising but they didn't deliver. I will probably try something else here again tho just...More

We ate from the lounge menu, delicious lamb burgers from a local farmer for main course. The bun was home made sour dough which was really nice. We had tasty ostkaka and cardamom cake for dessert. The coffee was good enough, but not the best....More

This is a red house on the riverside with a terrace. But when I visited we could only stay inside, which is white and ascetic. We were a large group (50 or so) but the service was quick and food excellent. I recommend especially fish,...More

Organic, close-by and on-site farming! As Umeås first KRAV-certified restaurant, we take the full step towards a more earthy and natural kitchen. Instead of buying into anonymous goods and meats we act directly by farmers and producers in close connection with the city. A couple of kilometres from the city, we operate our own organic outdoor cultivation providing us with high-quality vegetables and root crops during summer, autumn and winter.We put a lot of energy into finding exciting drinks - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic - that fit into each dish on our seasonally changing menu. Again we prefer drinks where an organic and biodynamic thinking lies in the basis for production.We also bake bread and is completely self-sufficient for our restaurant. Our bread is made of 90-100% organic ingredients! Welcome to Socialize!
