The Best Restaurants in Stockholm

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to dine in Stockholm, both International gourmet and traditional Swedish cuisine.

Our team to Stockholm are four young professional travelers who have tested a lot of hotels, restaurants and night-clubs world-wide.

Stockholm “the beauty on water” is spread across 14 islands. Bridges, ferries and the metro link it all together. Walking is often a good way to get around and exploring the city – but check distances before setting out – a bus or metro ticket is cheap.

Stockholm’s beauty and fashion sense are legendary – it is modern, dynamic and ever-changing. Good design is simply a must – even the humblest coffee shop invests in attractive furniture, strategically placed greenery, sophisticated lighting and richly textured wall coverings.

Stockholm has a lot of shopping options. The essence of Swedish fashion is simple, wearable looks with a high trend factor and at reasonable prices – fashion is one of the most popular forms of contemporary cultural expression.

Stockholm is a city of food obsessives – fine dining is a must – if a food trend appears anywhere in the world, Stockholm is on it – but traditional Swedish cooking is still going strong – fried herring, meatballs, toast skagen and sill with hardbread are all menu standards.

Currency is Swedish Krona ( SEK ).

The StarTripper Journal Recommends these Stockholm Restaurants:

Hotel picture Portal is located on Sankt Eriksplan, close to the Vasa Parc. Portal is a nice and modern small restaurant. Portal is open every night and is suitable for both small and large groups, for spontaneous dinners at the bar, or just for chilling out with a glass of wine.

Chef Klas Lindberg took over the restaurant in 2016. His focus is on uncomplicated food with clear tastes and quality ingredients — alongside the belief that good food can be elevated effortlessly by great drink pairings. The food is always well prepared and uncomplicated, and the focus is always on the taste. Lindberg serves grilled seafood, tender meats and home-grown vegetables.

Each dish is matched with bottles from the wine cellar selection of Totte Steneby, an award-winning sommelier.

Portal is a unified gastronomic experience – top cuisine – top warm service.

St Eriksplan 1
Hotel picture Operakällaren's Main Dining Room is one of Sweden’s most beautiful restaurants with its original interior of wall paintings, gilded oak panels, suspended panel ceiling and impressive chandeliers. With the addition of large mirrors, new furniture and fixtures, it has been transformed into a modern restaurant.

The Main Dining Room serves international haute cuisine, signed by Chef des Cuisines Stefano Catenacci. Carefully constructed dishes are underpinned by classic techniques. Using top quality ingredients, dishes with distinct flavours are carefully prepared to a consistently high standard. The wine list boasts extensive vintages of the world's great wines.

This is really fine dining, the place for great occasions, one of the top restaurants in Stockholm.

Karl XII:s torg
Hotel picture Brasserie Bobonne is situated on Storgatan in Östermalm – a little two-roomed restaurant with comfy chairs and a homely feeling – an open-plan kitchen which fills the room with pleasant aromas.

Here you can enjoy classical, well-prepared French dishes such as Moules Marinière, Boeuf Bourguignon and Chèvre Chaud – or something new and exciting.

The menu is presented on a blackboard, and is evenly split between starters, mains and desserts – from classical French staples to French-inspired dishes based on the finest seasonal ingredients. A very strong French wine-list – a wide range of wines and champagne are available in all price ranges, many offered by glass.

Chefs and restaurateurs Roger Lindberg and Ingela Persson present a fine French neighbourhood eatery. Top cuisine, top and warm service.

Storgatan 12
Hotel picture Aloë is situated in Brännkyrka, a southern suburb of Stockholm – located in a repurposed supermarket with a seemingly hidden entrance – this warm, welcoming restaurant is run by two chefs and owners Daniel Höglander and Niclas Jönsson.

The latin name “Aloë” roughly translates to “unknown origins” which illustrates the broad geographic variety of ingredients and inspirations that make up the menu. The Chefs chose to work with the best produce wherever it comes from. Always highlighting quality ingredients married in intense but delicate flavour compositions.

The chefs take the guests on a journey of flavours and indulgence in a warm and charismatic setting. Snacks at the kitchen counter are followed by a locally-influenced surprise menu with a seafood bias. Creative dishes stimulate the senses with their intense flavours and original combinations.

Take bus 141 to Brännkyrka and find this exciting little restaurant – it is well worth the short ride.
