The text above translates to "A genuine Christmas at Solviken". And that really explains it all. This autumn we have a classic swedish Christmas smorgasbord premiere. Herring, sausages, meatballs and ham together with a new take or two. 'Vörtbröd' and Jansson's of course! We grill the Christmas spicy ribs above real coal. Snaps, Christmas ale and 'mumma' with that. André has promised to create some new christmasly drinks.

We sum it all up with sweets and adequate name the whole ”En riktig jul!”

Fredag - Sunday 19th November to 13th December

A sitting down Christmas smorgasbord

A year like this we bring all the goodness right to your table, and start with glogg and ginger bisquits. Naturally. Then four platters. Even if we can't do it the buffet way - like it usually is, and you have room for more, just ask for refill – do however save space for the desserts, they are worth it.


The 16th of November the Swedish Government issued new restrictions due to Covid -19. Unfortunately these make Thomas Piano bar impossible. We're, as you and not at least Thomas who has rehearsed Christmas carols for days, really sorry about that. We'll contact everyone who has booked - and do hope we've find a solution that will make it possible to enjoy all the delicious Christmas food after all.
