Garbo - The Swedish Restaurant

This is a restaurant called GARBO'S.  Located at 42 Crawford Street, London in England.

Garbo's is very cosy inviting Swedish restaurant close to Baker Street. It had  a “bistro like” atmosphere, but the quality and attention to detail of a quality  restaurant. It was cosy, cheerful and intimate. The floors were polished wood,  the walls were painted white and decorated with a large amount of memorabilia  including; pictures of the Swedish royal family, copious prints of Great Garbo  and a very large moose's head (the eyes of which seemed to follow me around  the room).


The tables were laid with linen cloths and napkins, with a touch of the IKEA in  the condiment display. There was a fresh carnation on every table. This restaurant has been there for a few years and has a good reputation.
