Fodor's Review

If you'd like to take a detour from Tokyo's sushi-centric fine dining, consider this unexpected alternative. One of a handful of authentic Swedish restaurants in Tokyo, Aquavit offers a reasonably priced prix fixe dinner (and lunch). A great introduction to the cuisine is the herring sampler, which includes pickled herring and sweet varieties that change seasonally. Entrées like the smoked trout with celery puree, white beech mushrooms, and apple-horseradish sauce or the venison loin served with cured ham, potato dumplings, and lingonberry sauce continue the Scandinavian theme. But don't ask for the tab before sampling dessert in the form of scrumptious Swedish pancakes served with ginger confit, fresh cream, and raspberries. The ultraromantic dining room manages to be both inviting and modern, thanks to design and furniture by Fritz Hansen of Denmark.
