If you want to enjoy good seafood (in a fairly sleepy Normandy town) this is the place to go to. Baligan is the local fisherman’s name for octopus – The essential theme is: – fresh – seasonal – well prepared. Take the menu or go a la carte and enjoy. We had the fishsoup as starter which was really tasty but unfortunately didn’t go for the seafood plate as main which looked very good at the table next to us.
Meals are a bit heavy with lots of cream or butter. This is typical from Normandy cuisine but may be too much for you . In that case, I recommend to just pick up a starter and a dessert, out of a menu offering an incredible assortment of gastronomic options.
The food served (especially fish and fruit de mer) is absolutely fantastic. The products we were served were excellent (especially the oysters) and fresh and tasty.
This is where the locals go (crowded on the Saturday): a bustling, crowded and jolly atmosphere.
The personnel was also very nice, and after the dessert a small glass of Calvados was offred to us. If you love the fish soup, you can buy it take away. Do make reservations or you are disappointed as there are not that may places available.
The first week in July – Pontus Frithiofs new restaurant will open its gates . The London based restaurant concept with just lobster and hamburgers on the menu will occupy the former fine dining location on Norrlandsgatan. The restaurant primarily based in the basement will also host a 20 meter bar area upstairs and around 100 seats. The price tag is as simple as the menu: All courses cost 275 SEK. Since the restaurant has limited the number of choices they have put all the focus on the atmosphere, music and colorful service.
According the Pontus Frithiof the Interest in the Burger & Lobster concept has been tremendous since we released the news in March. The restaurant Burger & Lobster is a collaboration with Modis restaurants (a company that up to now have run more suburbian type of lunch restaurants).
Let’s if it will be a success also in Stockholm. However since especially the younger urban professional crowd never seems to get tired of having burgers….chances are high.
The first Burger & Lobster restaurant opened in Mayfair in London in 2011. It became a huge success. Soon followed several branches and just this year launched eight pieces of restaurants in the world, from Manchester to Dubai.
