Restaurants & cafés

In Sälen there are plenty of cafés and restaurants that are open in summer.

Fompes träkolsgrill

Fompe's charcoal grill, outdoor seating with locally produced burgers, sausages and other goodies, open both summer and winter.


The Gammelgården restaurant, known for its wild game meat, has become a popular classic far beyond Sälen. Here you can enjoy delicious poultry, fish and wild game from northern Sweden - a true dining experience. This year, Gammelgården was even nominated as the Wild Game Restaurant of the Year.

For lunch, enjoy a really classic dish at Gammelgården! The Waffle Hut, dating back to the 1600s, was moved to its current location in 1945 from Malungsfors to Högfjällshotellet as a destination for the hotel’s guests. They’ve used the same waffle recipe for 100 years. And of course it's a secret... But we’ll give you a hint: we use sparkling water in the batter.

Gustav Grill & Bar

We are open in slightly different forms during winter, summer and autumn. Serving lunch, après-ski/bike, à la carte, pub & tavern from our own brewery. Our kitchen focuses on honest, ambitious cooking from scratch!
