Aristo

Jazzy venue with European theme

On the corner of Kommendörsgatan/Styrmansgatan, where Bengt Wedholm's popular Östergök restaurant once stood, restaurateurs Douglas Fagerman and Ruben Blomdahl have created a corner spot full of culinary offerings. One of the three restaurants on the corner is Aristo, a classic venue with beautiful, light wooden interior and a modern à la carte menu with European flavours. The name is a tribute to jazz, a genre cherished by the establishment.

Duvan

Ambitious neighbourhood restaurant

Duvan is a neighbourhood pub from veteran restaurateur Micke Ljungberg. Naturally, they serve beer, but the food is a cut above the average local pub. The menu consists of pub-grub favourites such as fish & chips, bangers & mash and other rustic dishes, but made with a whole lot of love and skill.

Pelago

The hottest spot of the summer?

Svenska Brasserier's rooftop restaurant Pelago opened just in time for the summer of 2024 and is a real oasis for anyone craving spectacular views, summery food, refreshing drinks, DJs and live music. Located on the roof of Katarinahuset at Slussen, Pelago spans almost 800 square metres, offering views in all directions.

Jarden

Experienced gang

When the gang behind Etoile and Celeste open a summer restaurant you know it's going to be a hit. They've created a delightful garden party feel here, with grilled food, assorted drinks, music and a nice vibe. The food consists of grilled skewers, small dishes and tasty sauces with a summery twist.

Bord

Ambitious in laid-back surroundings

When Michelin-starred restaurant Agrikultur closed down, chef Joel Aronsson took over the premises. Under the name Bord (which means “table” in Swedish), he serves up the kind of ingredients and wines you'd normally find in a fine dining restaurant, but in laid-back bistro-style surroundings, which turns out to be a very successful concept. He uses classic techniques combined with a large dose of French cuisine.  

Bambi

Super French

Bambi describe themselves as a "timeless French restaurant", with classic cooking, rustic dishes and French wines. They serve a classic starter-main course-dessert menu where the ingredients do the talking. Sometimes, when the mood strikes, they open up the cinema in the basement showing (French) films.

Sun worshipping in Slakthusområdet

Klotet

Modern above the rooftops

Café Klotet, which is a part of Svenska Brasserier, along with its neighbours Gondolen and Pelago, opened in early 2024 and can be accessed via the footbridge from Mosebacke torg to Katarinahuset. Eat, drink wine, and socialise with a stunning view over the entrance to Stockholm harbour. The restaurant also boasts specially designed modern interiors.

Rolfs Hav

Salty sister restaurant

Piscine delicacies take centre stage at this sister restaurant to Rolfs Kök. Drop by for a couple of oysters or some caviar at the bar accompanied by a glass of wine, or enjoy a full dinner with both cold and hot dishes. The atmosphere is lively with a touch of Continental charm.

Leijontornet

Classic restaurant destination in new costume

After nearly 14 years lying dormant, restaurateur Daniel Crespi has breathed new life into the classic Old Town restaurant, Leijontornet. The emphasis here is on perfectly pairing wine and food with its roots in southern European cuisines, served in hedonistic surroundings spread over four floors and with a drop-in-friendly wine bar on the ground floor. The restaurant's extensive wine cellar has been built up over almost 20 years and holds around 30,000 bottles.

The Social

Sponsored

Social in the city

The focus in the Clarion Hotel Sign's restaurant and bar is on modern versions of bistro favourites, served in a sociable setting with a living-room feel. A big night out with a three-course dinner, lunch or a post-work drink with a few snacks in the bar - everyone's welcome at The Social Sign whatever the occasion.

Gondolen

Classic elegance

The Svenska Brasserier restaurant group, which runs restaurants such as Sturehof and Riche, has taken over the classic Gondolen premises, which have been a restaurant since 1994. Expect classic elegance, Swedish gastronomy and incomparable views of Stockholm.

Bar Europa

On Bysistorget

You'll find this lively and slightly legendary haunt on Bysistorget. Bar Europa draws in people from all over Stockholm, who come to eat small dishes and pizza slices, washed down with natural wine or beer. If you fancy doing some celebrity spotting, you've come to the right place.

Bacchanale

Talking point in Skanstull

The duo behind popular Främmat in Vasastan also run Bacchanale in Skanstull, a warm, welcoming restaurant serving Southern European flavours. Bacchanale quickly became a talking point when it opened, so if you're a bit of a foodie, head to Ringvägen 110.

Noema

Gastronomic experience to remember

Culinary influences at Noema come from all corners of the world, in the form of a menu with sharing plates and meaty main courses. The aim is to offer a destination for memorable food and drink experiences and, as well as lunch, brunch and dinner, you can drop by for a cocktail. In summertime you can eat and drink al fresco. 

Triton

Set three-course menu

Leave any control freak tendencies at the door when you enter Triton, as a set three-course menu is the order of the day here - and it can change daily. What doesn't change is that their food is made from top quality ingredients and given the unique Triton treatment. The restaurant is run by a trio who have previously worked at top restaurants such as Ekstedt, Oaxen Slip and Gastrologik.

Forma

Passionate about food

The restaurant scene around Hornsbruksgatan has a new addition in the form of Forma, which is run by the restaurateur duo behind the Östermalm restaurant Napolyon Bistro & Bar. Here in Hornstull they've created a slightly louder, edgier establishment that's open until 3am, but is still passionate about food. They serve French/Asian medium-sized dishes, often with Swedish influences, made from sustainable ingredients in season. 

Frippe

Spanish food bar from Sandhäxan

The team who run the popular sandwich joint, Sandhäxan, have now set up shop in classic surroundings in Dramaten, the Royal Dramatic theatre. Frippe's new guise is a Spanish-flavoured food bar with "a long bar counter, lots of fun guests, plenty of food and wine". Dishes are served in small and larger formats, and in addition to wine by the glass, you can sip carajillos, cocktails, sherry, ice-cold beer – and, naturally, oodles of cava.

India's

Modern Indian cooking

The locale in the Elite Hotel that previously housed Vassa Eggen has been taken over by India's, run by Jonas Svensson, famous for concepts such as Miss Voon and GOMA. The focus is on interweaving traditional and new flavours from India's culinary culture - quite simply "Modern Indian Cuisine".

Miyakodori

Japanese izakaya

Restaurateurs Max, Lars and John have taken their inspiration from Japanese culinary traditions. Miyakadori, whose name is taken from an izakaya in Tokyo, welcomes guests into a relaxed space to hang out and enjoy good food and drinks. The menu consists of grilled skewers, small plates, sake, cocktails, beer and a wine list.

Meet up Madrid-style

Ever since Spanjorskan opened just a few steps away from its sister restaurant Nybrogatan 38, this part of Östermalm has felt a little more continental. Meet up with friends over a few plates of tapas and a glass of wine or order some pintxos in the bar after work - this place just oozes hot Madrid backstreet vibes.

Persona

Daring fine dining

Fine dining, but louder and edgier - that's Persona. Two former Frantzén chefs, Louis Cespedes and Jonatan Nyström, are behind the helm here. The restaurant serves a maximum of 25 diners per evening, who are treated to a varying tasting menu paired with perfect wines.  

Frantzén

In a class of its own

The famous fine-dining restaurant Frantzén has moved from the Old Town to a completely renovated 19th century house in the heart of the city, and the result is something completely extraordinary. The restaurant has three floors, with a dining room, terrace and a lounge in the old loft apartment - but only 23 covers. Take the lift going up and prepare yourself for a gastronomic journey in Sweden's first three Michelin-starred restaurant.

Astoria

By Frantzén

The former Astoria cinema on Nybrogatan has been transformed into an international brasserie with an elegant, relaxed style and star chef Björn Frantzén at the reins. Open all week for lunch, dinner or drinks, with a focus on cocktails and wine.

Food bar with a focus on wine

On the corner of Ringvägen and Katarina Bangata, Ring Katarina, from the team behind Racamaca, aims to be a place where both guests and staff feel happy and right at home, a place to enjoy a glass of wine and a few snacks, or stay for a slap-up dinner. The emphasis is on natural wine from both larger and smaller producers.

Röda Huset

Exciting cocktails

Award-winning bartender Hampus Thunholm is behind yet another new bar concept, this time in the middle of Sergels torg. Together with the Stureplansgruppen restaurant group, he has created a cocktail bar and restaurant called Röda Huset. Sip exciting cocktails wth Swedish ingredients and eat pizza late into the evening.

Bar Central

Eastern European favourite in a new guise

When Bar Central moved out of their premises on Birger Jarlsgatan, many wondered where the restaurant would turn up next. In autumn 2023, they moved into the former Folkbaren, where they're continuing with their concept that revolves around Eastern European food and beer.

You can also drop by for after-work drinks with cocktails and small dishes in a wonderfully lively atmosphere.

Rummel

Ambitious neighbourhood restaurant

When restaurateurs Robin Moderato and Christopher Ellertsson open a restaurant, the result is establishments such as  Vassa Eggen and Boqueria, and now Rummel.

It's described as a neighbourhood restaurant, although in the duo's own special style, with ambitious food that's hard to pinpoint on a map.

Punk Royale

Playful luxury

After a controversial guest appearnce at Kåken, the chef duo Jocke Almvist and Kalle Nilsson opened this rather cheeky luxury restaurant on Södermalm. The flavours are as much of a talking-point as the wildly creative presentations and the prices are relatively benevolent. Very popular.

This is verdant oasis ideal for hanging out, whether it's for a glass of something in the bar, a long lunch or an Italian dinner made with locally grown ingredients. During the summer months, guests flock to the al fresco dining area.
