We managed to get a table for 4 without reservation on a Monday night. The food was good and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. There was a reasonable variety of choices. One of the dishes we ordered was the veal and it was nicely done. As we went after 6pm, and there was plenty of free roadside parking near the... More

We extended our stay in Falun to eat at Banken but regretted it. The portions were on the small side considering the price in particular, and we were not offered bread - it felt odd to consume what mostly was meat without much in terms of vegetables or starch. As fir quality, somehow, the various parts of the meal didn't... More

Thank you for your review! We are sorry that we didn’t lived up to your expectations. All guests will be offered bread so it is a mistake of service. Nice to hear that your teenagers felt welcome! We think that all guests are important regardless of age, everyone should feel welcome to us. Hope to see you as our guests... More

We were in town with a large tour group. Couldn't stand another hotel buffer so we looked for a local eatery. This place was perfect. Charming and quiet. The food was beautiful and delicious, the desserts were perfect and our waiter, Patrick, couldn't have been more helpful or attentive. All around it was just what we needed.

There's a reason Banken is one of the top-rated restaurants in Falun. Just walk through the door and you're drawn in by the jovial atmosphere. People are there to have dinner and have fun. From the public-feeling table layout, open air kitchen, upbeat music, Banken creates an atmosphere. The menu features regional specialties and an especially good lineup of craft... More

I've been here a number of times during the last few years, always pleased. The restaurant has been around for ages, which is probably the best recommendation for any local restaurant.

We got into Falun without lunch and it was 230pm and this is where we landed. How fortunate! Quick service. They made a vegetarian pasta plate for my husband with no fuss, and it was delicious! I had the fish and chips, also good, though the fries were more floppy than crispy they were fine. The berry sorbet was astounding,... More
