Brasserie du Sud

Reviewed By kacytjobb - Lund, Sweden

My friend was looking forward to lunch or coffee at Hotel Continental as part of the Wallander experience. We arrived on a rainy July day to be told that the restaurant was closed and there was just outdoor serving. We walk out to the outdoor service and all the chairs were put up and no one around. So, no food or drink for us and no review for the restaurant.

Norra Promenaden Tradgardsrestaurang

Restaurant Norra Promenaden was built around 1870 in typical architecture for the period. Several music and dining pavilions were added when the area became increasingly popular. The area was before the old cemetery, laid out in two stages in 1812 and in 1948. Here Birgitta Chapel was built in 1848 and was built with side chapels 1923rd The park's beautiful environment is today Norra Promenaden Trädgårdsrestaurang & Café. We serves seasonally inspired cooking in a refined manner. Our cafe offers a lot of goodies, produced by our own pastry chef!

We called in here first for tea and cake in the afternoon. It gets very busy so it's worth booking a table. The food is beautifully presented and fresh with daily specials. It seems to be very popular with young business people who meet there for lunch so be prepared to wait for a table if you can't book. Tables and chairs outside are pleasant, but local dog walkers tend to use the cafe and tie up their dogs outside, so it can get noisy with dogs Barking.

Restaurant Store Thor

Summer time we serve grilled food & tapas outside. The rest of the year we are Open downstairs in the romantic restaurant from the 14 centurie.

Reviewed By Brian B - Cleveland, Ohio

Came with high expectations, based on other reviews. Interesting space in the cellar of a building on the main square, in the pedestrian zone.
Carpaccio was OK, but nothing special. Same with the entree -- chicken with chili glaze (something one would get at TGF Friday's in the US). Given the price, would not say it's a great value, and would say there are better alternatives.
And the 10 SEK charge for a glass of water, which I didn't even ask for, is quite annoying.

As the Ystad Jazz Festival was in full swing, the restaurants were full everywhere. We were told that if we came early, we would have an hour and a quarter to eat. There was no outside Seating available (it started raining a little later so we were actually better off inside!).
As my friend John knew the place well and wanted me to try it, we accepted the offer.
Thanks to the good service we managed to finish within the time frame given.
I had halibut (excellent, but a very small piece at a price of about 25 euros). John had filet of chicken which was fine. For dessert we both had a delicious chocolate brownie.
John said that next time we'll have to try the fish and shellfish soup which, according to him, is a must.
The view, right in the harbour, is lovely, particularly if you can sit outside.
There is a long jetty leading to what is going to be a very future-looking spa. We needed that short walk after the brownie!

The interior decoration is, well, extraordinarily eclectic shall we say...a mish-mash of colors, furniture styles, photos, you name it. The friendly staff sported funny knitted hats and served up vegetarian sandwiches, pastry, coffee and tea. Seating is available both outdoors and indoors.
The cafe is located in one of the oldest and best preserved crosswork houses, with the oldest parts dating back to the 17th century. It is now a center for creative art.

Hos Morten cafe

Reviewed By twoatemv - Isle of Man, United Kingdom

Looking for somewhere for lunch on Easter Sunday, and finding several places closed, we were delighted to find this place.
Although small and tables quite close together, it had a cosy atmosphere.
The soup was delicious, as was the apple dessert, and the menu offered enough choices to please all our party aged from 3 to 60 plus.
The prices were most reasonable too.

Lovers of the TV show should go here. Whilst not the most glamorous of places, the coffee is good as well as the cakes. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Reviewed By solotraveller351 - Barcelona, Spain

Firstly, the quality of the fish is good. The great shame is that mayonnaise is liberally poured all over the maki and completely overwhelms any natural fish taste. Before I ordered sushi I discussed with the waiter my desire for traditional plain nigiri & maki, making use of the laminated menu given I ordered. Dish delivered had less nigiri & more mayonnaise maki. Post raising point re mayonnaise deluge & difference to my order - the waiter informed me that they were aiming 'high class' & 'differentiating' themselves in the busy Ystad restaurant scene & that this was what was on the menu. So. Not only did the waiter fail to pass my specific request to the chef but he also changed the actual menu without informing the customer ( yes. I was shown & ordered from an entirely different menu to the one that the kitchen was working from). I know. Monty Python. I am greatly understating how far the waiter was from a customer friendly attitude when both valid points were brought to his attention.
