One of the best hotel restaurants I have had in a long time

Hotel restaurants are often hit and miss with average food and inflated prices (take note, Scandic) so when we came down for dinner here we went in with realistic expectations. Cuckoo's nest and the excellent service we got from our hostess Jenni was above and beyond what we expected. The tartare was scrumptious, and the röding was on the same level. My partners hamburger was also very good. The food arrived in good time, was delicious and we both went back to our room very satisfied. The menu might seem a little on the pricey side at first glance, but portions were reasonable, and the food lives up to its price. With top-notch and attentive service personal like Jenni then you will not leave disappointed. View more
