Koppargrillen....




Restaurang Koppargrillen, 1960`s (click to enlarge)

This restaurant has remained almost unchanged since it opened in the late 60`s. After more than 30 years, "Fläskfilé med bearnaisesås" (pork tenderloin) is still my favorite. If you ever visit Vänersborg ....do not miss this place at Sundsgatan.
