Before travelling I googled new restaurants in Karlstad (my hometown). The one that kept popping up with amazing reviews was Br. Olssons Elektriska, a new restaurant in the city centre.
Back in 1933 there was an actual electrical company by two brothers with the same name in the very same spot and the “current” brothers, originally from a small town near Karlstad, decided to go for a retro design throughout the restaurant and bar and add Elektriska to their name. The menu is quite international with high quality ingredients. The meat is swedish and the fish from Vänern (the lake close to my parents house).
We all chose fish dishes that were absolutely outstanding in both taste and presentation and for dessert a classic creme brulee and strawberry mousse, yuuuum. I highly recommend Br. Olssons Elektriska, go go go!
