Added extra!


There’s a true gem right next door to the exclusive At Six hotel that opened in the spring. TAK is a new rooftop restaurant serving modern cuisine that is carefully adapted to incorporate seasonal produce. Featuring largely Japanese flavours and techniques with Nordic ingredients, TAK delights its customers with innovative and understandably popular dishes created by star chef Frida Ronge. You can even experience some true taste sensations at sister restaurant UNN, where Albin Edberg is head chef. UNN is a reinterpretation of traditional teppanyaki. With only 8 seats and one service per evening, you must make sure to book well in advance. In warmer weather, we strongly recommend a trip up to the rooftop where spectacular views await you!
