We stayed at the attached hotel, and the front desk recommended this restaurant. The mussels were excellent as well as the hamburger. Dessert was strawberry ice crime and creme brûlée. Very good and the service was excellent

Excellent food though menu definitely spartan. Quick service and lively well decorated place which is unusual for the city... If you are near definitely recommended for a drink or a meal.

I definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a great brunch. There is so many different types of breakfast and lunch foods - you'll leave full! It's also great because you can order a mimosa at the bar to add to the experience. Good service and a good atmosphere!

Love the food, the atmosphere and the spooky empty chair in the corner.. You have to try the burger, it's "to die for"

Have been to this Brasserie many times and have enjoyed it each time. Fridays is half price night on food and drink from 1600 - 1800 (I recommend you go early) as it gets very busy. Saturdays they do a good brunch, help yourself bacon, eggs, pancakes and much much more. Well worth the money if you are hungry enough... More

The offer was that you could order anything for 1/2 price, and I don't really think that there is any other high quality restaurant in Gävle with that offer. Even though it's usually full on the after work hours, the service... More
