Wallmans Nöjen's concept is simple and successful-The audience should be plied with good food and given good entertainment simultaneously! The waiters double up as artistes, and are actually in charge of the show. First they take your order, then they take to the stage to sing popular songs to the best of their ability, and then they serve your food. Diners often become directly involved in the show, since the waiters do not limit their performances to the stage area. The timings and the prices vary depending on the show.

The result is a unique and exquisite theater space that suits the experimental repertoire of dance and circus perfectly. Linus Tunström frequently directs here.
