Had dinner at the restaurant with a business colleague and thoroughly enjoyed the great variety of excellent dishes offered as part of their signature menu. It was a wonderful and memorable experience. The restaurant is in an old building by the harbor and the interior...More

This is a superb restaurant. It's divided up into a few separate rooms which gives a lovely sense of intimacy. It is beautifully decorated and elegant. There is a reassuringly limited menu, so everything it promises is done well. The food is delicious and inventive...More

The buiding is close to the Market Square, by the sea, and was build by a master mariner, Captain Sundman as his home in 1817. The rooms are very classical and the atmosphere is out of this world. I had a business lunch here on...More
