Chef's Area

On February 14, 2024, a completely new dinner concept premieres in the heart of Sand. Here, our chefs invite you on a local taste journey with the Bjäre Peninsula as a starting point. At a large communal table next to the open kitchen, you can enjoy a seasonal menu in eight servings. Accompany the menu with the sommelier’s selected beverage package, with or without alcohol. A dining experience with surprising elements, a relaxed atmosphere, and dedicated service.
