Djuret (The animal) is always evolving and it is therefore a good idea to check their website to see what the kitchen is up to at the moment. Whatever it is, it will be tasty and comfortable. At the bar the menu is a la carte and specials often including great wine deals. The wine cellar is legendary, good value and its wines can also be ordered from the sister venues Flickan and The Burgundy.
