Lisa på Udden
There are now three Lisas in Stockholm: A trio of well-known seafood restaurants that are invariably busy with the locals who come for traditional Swedish food good service and stylish decor.
Hotellet
Gondolen
GQ
Fåfängan
Hilltop cafe overlooking Södermalm that's a great spot for brunch or sunset drinks.
Frantzén
The hottest restaurant in Sweden right now, Restaurant Frantzén is all about beautiful ingredients sourced from Sweden and given cutting-edge treatment...
Fjäderholmarnas Krog
Fjäderholmarnas Krog has intrigued us at Hg2 for months, as it was completely off the radar in terms of communication, due to stormy weather and frozen waters. The unattainable is always desirable. Check that it's open before going and then head
East
Divino
Stallmästaregården
Set in Hagapark, the city's most regal public park, this feels a million miles from downtown Stockholm, but is only a ten minute cab ride away. The restaurant is highly respected in its own right and the 49-room hotel followed in 2000.
Allmanna Galleriet 925
With the minimalist white walls and bare floors as a backdrop the fashion-conscious Stockholm crowd that comes here in the evenings is a sight to be watched from the inviting sofas.
Wedholms Fisk
When you feel like splurging on some really great seafood, Wedholms is the place to go. The room is classically Swedish, decorated in shades of grey and cream, service is warm, and the fish is perfect. If you just want a drink, you can perch at the b
Prinsen
For some old-style Swedish food, come to Prinsen. The interior is clubby, with leather booths and lots of framed pictures crowding the panelled walls. When it's warm enough there are plenty of tables outside. Service, like the food, is classic: Some
PA And Co
Locals love PA & Co. It's not the most fashionable place, it's not known for the best food, it's no longer new and exciting. But just try getting in here any Friday or Saturday. It is constantly busy, thanks to its exuberant, informal atmosphere.
Ljunggrens
Södermalm has a reputation as the most happening island in Stockholm though its restaurants often fail to support this. Thankfully Ljunggrens delivers. During the day it's full of people taking a break from shopping but comes into its own when t
Le Rouge
The enclaves of this French restaurant in Gamla Stan resemble the billowing silk tent of an old fashioned Big Top at the circus‰ÛÒ it also has top food to match.
Esperanto
The fact that this restaurant was dreamt up by two chefs on the deck of a boat in the Atlantic ocean has infused the place with a certain magic.
Griffins’ Steakhouse
Meat gets chic at Griffins' Steakhouse Extraordinaire, with eclectic interiors elevating its mouthwatering menu of marbled meat.
Portofino
Three venues in one, this restaurant-cum-salon-cum-bar is sure to delight.
Vassa Eggen
In a way, Vassa Eggen shouldn't be this good. It's close to hip Stureplan, and has a wildly fashionable interior and a clientele to match, so to find that the food is so good comes as something of a pleasant surprise.
Teatergrillen
Teatergrillen, located close to the thespian world of Stockholm, treasures the performing arts and has made them into its primary motif. The backstreet location means the clientele have come looking for it as opposed to simply dropping in off Sturepl
Restaurangen
Stockholm, like many other Northern European cities, oves its concept dining. There's a thrill, an attraction and something rather subversive not being part of the norm. Essentially this is high-end tapas-style dining - choose a selection of dishes a
Peacock Dinner Club
The windows are blocked out so that no one can see in or out, which is a common feature of Asian restaurants. The idea is, that once inside you enter a different realm, which may seem like a trick, but we're all for the tricking if it tastes this goo
Operahuset
For the best classical French cuisine in the most opulent classical Swedish setting, it's hard to outrank Operahuset. As befits a place known for public performances, there's a sense of high drama about the place. Food, and patrons, are rich. It's no
