    Aster chooses to go its’ own path and sets the bar high as one of the first higher end establishments opened in 2021 in one of Malmö’s most up and coming districts – Varvsstaden in the Western Harbour. Everything is more or less cooked over open flame and influences from the Mediterranean and the middle east are combined seamlessly with produce from the restaurant’s own garden. Even though the concept of “middle dishes” can be found wherever you find yourself in Malmö, this menu feels vibrant and is a welcome addition to Malmö’s restaurant scene. It is, to say the least, well worth the 10-minu...

    Bouchon is the number one destination in Malmö if you crave food based on the traditional cuisine of Lyon, France. The keyword at Bouchon is rich. Rich in butter, meat, flavours and size. They offer both à la carte and a three-course menu but be sure not to miss out on their speciality, the pressed duck, a truly well served classic. Bring your second stomach and eat your heart out! A cosy and clean atmosphere with a small bar that hosts a generous list of stronger liquors and a ​smaller selection of cocktails.

    Sture 1912 is classic restaurant territory in Malmö, and the walls have housed a restaurant for over 100 years. Under new ownership from the end of 2021, the restaurant was carefully renovated and restored to a more classic brasserie feel. The result is refreshingly elegant and continental. The menu is classically Swedish, with a strong nod towards classic European bistros. Perhaps it appeals to an older crowd, and it is charming in an old-mannish kind of way. In short - a welcome addition to Malmö's restaurant scene, even though the price point is on the higher side. The wine follows the...

In the bar Malmö’s natural wine lovers and sommeliers can be found in the late hours.

    Located in the old town of Malmö, two stones throws away from the tourist friendly lilla torg in Malmö, lies Julie. A wine bar established 2018 and is borrowing its name from Beaujolais artisan wine maker Julie Balagny.

    When Alexander Sjögren opened Mutantur at the end of 2017, nobody thought the concept would fly in the long run. Many restaurants have opened with the hope of being able to keep closed during the weekends but have been forced to have open on Saturdays and Sundays. The restaurant also only takes reservations between 5 and 5.30 pm, to make the later part of the evening more spontaneous. The restaurant's name translates into a Latin phrase meaning "change", and the only thing that hasn't changed since 2017 is the restaurant's opening hours. Mutantur is still closed during the weekends, and reserv...
