We were passing by Halmstad and booked a shoppinglunch. We were served a delicious "planka" with meat. In combination with an italian wine, this was as good as it can be!!!

Great restaurant, best to book. On the pricey side but you get great waiting staff, who are bilingual.

Nice restaurant at the pedestrian street. Great place to sit outside, eat and watch people passing by. A bit expensive place, but it was worth it.
