Good service and delicious food. The home made Swedish Rye bread is fabulous! Just like my Grandmother used to make and so hard to find anywhere but at Plaj.
If you want to have a quiet conversation, recommend going early before it gets full. Even then, noise level is better than a lot of other places unless you are beside a big party (we weren't, but have been in the past). Food and service excellent.
The service and ambiance is great. Plating and presentation are beautiful, but some of the plates like the gnocchi could use some more depth either seasoning or ingredient. The northern lights dessert and coffee are insanely good! Value is okay in comparison to similar fine dining in the area.
The food is a Astoshingl The lobster in lobster foam was remarkable. Robert Sundell is a very talented chef. I had the semla cake which is only on the menu in February.
It was a spectacular experience. One of the best, most delicious, and creative meals I've ever had. Also, their bread is to-die-for. An absolute must. It's a great place to visit pre-or post-performance at the ballet or symphony.
Great Scandinavian specialities. Especially the herring and all the fish. And the soup was divine.
Our only criticism is that the dining room was so dark we had difficulty reading the menu and seeing the food.
Perfect dinner spot prior to a show and the service team is well trained for that. Delicious food! Cute place.
Plaj is tucked away down a charming corridor so it already feels like a special secret upon arrival. The wallpaper and decor continue the fantasy. The food is fantastic - updated Swedish classics.
This was such a bizarre experience. The service was so hostile we almost walked out. But then we honestly couldn't decide if the waiter had some sort of empathy-related disorder, and actually began to feel sorry for her. Basically, we asked for some help choosing a vodka-based cocktail, and after an age, one appeared that wasn't at all what we were after. We were polite, and understanding, explaining that we'd actually hoped to discuss some options with the barman... but what we got was outright hostility! So very weird. Meanwhile, other attributes of the meal:
- Very hard to get attention from any of the wait staff (we were partially sat behind a pillar that didn't help)
- Amazing food (esp. Saddle of Elk)
- The room was quite cold, but we were loathe to say anything about it given the reactions we'd had thus far.
Don't know what else to say, it was honestly the weirdest restaurant experience I can remember, and overall, really very unpleasant. And if you're wondering if we were the only ones to feel this, the table next to us felt the same.
It's a big shame, my wife is Swedish, and I was excited to find a Scandinavian restaurant for us to check out.
