Great food and fantastic lively little pub/restaurant. The only warning is keep an eye on those prices, especially with the drinks. Got a bit of a shock at the end of very enjoyable evening. Very expensive Grappa !!

The place to be if you have money to burn. Pretentious and anything but service minded. It's a shame because the food in the Restaurant part is really good and the staff is friendly but the bar is just..... well, do't waste your money there

This restaurant was recommended by a local couple I met in my hotel. They weren't wrong! My dinner was delicious. We were lucky to get in without a reservation because it is clearly popular. However, the staff were really accommodating and we had a really nice meal. I had the pork my son had the duck. Nice atmosphere. Good service.

I was looking forward to eating at Bara Vara, and was disappointed with the food. On a positive note, the drinks are great and service was impeccable. The food had no dept, and not memorable. I found it overpriced.

Bara Vara is an excellent and fun place which I've been to many times. They have both the best bar in Helsingborg (in my opinion) and a restaurant that serves great food. I really like just about all the dishes I've tried there. And the service is professional and friendly. One of my favorite places to go to Helsingborg for... More

You will not be dissapointed ! Wonderful atmosphere, great location and the best food ever. Highly recommend a visit! If you just want a drink, something from the barmenu or a real meal in the restaurant section this is the place!

What can I say in a few sentences. Clean, great menu, Swedish service and relaxing. Nice place for a glass of wine on a warm evening. Very good wine list. Some said it was very sony, I didn't feel that.
