Restaurant Triton on Södermalm in Stockholm combines a hipster-friendly neighbourhood bistro feel with high-quality food and welcoming charm. The food comes as a set menu of three savoury dishes, and the menu is updated continuously. There are also some smaller snacks to choose from. The wine list is on the smaller side, and the idea is to update and develop it continuously. Europe is the focus, especially Italy and France. Nicely priced and with relaxed and welcoming service. For those who just want to stop by for a glass of wine, the so-called "Capri corner" is open for drop-ins.

By the Glass List of the Year Sweden, presented by Domaine Laroche 2023
Experienced sommeliers Béatrice Becher and Jonas Sandberg opened the Stockholm wine bar they wanted to visit themselves in this eastern Södermalm part of town. The name plays on the French word for madness, Folie. As you'll see on the interior, it’s loosely related to Territoriet in Oslo. Folii is one of the best wine bars in town and they have won our wine list competition in the By the glass-category several times. There are tasty small dishes on the menu and if you are eager for a more full meal - drop in to their restaurant next door: Voisine.
