  • Little is given away by the regular entrance, but as soon as you walk into the restaurant you get an idea why this took Mr Miglis over a year to renovate this building to fit his dream of opening Cuba’s first experiment in Swedish cuisine. The ceilings are high, the decoration minimalist but with that attention to detail of Swedish heritage–the pike fish, the fern, the chairs high up above the bar. The finishing is superb, the lines all so very clean. From the modern wooden furniture to the tableware and the Swedish candleholders that are a treasure in them there has been little missed to create the desired effect. It works. This has a very small bar, which is a good place just to drop in for a beer even if you don’t fancy eating.
