International By the Glass Wine List, presented by Coravin 2021
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.

The rather angular exterior of the Waterfront Building does little to prepare you for the warm atmosphere you find inside. Among mismatched velvet chairs, deep sofas and a lively bar, grilled food and great wines are to be had. The burgers are a classic.

L'Avventura is the Italian flagship of the restaurant group Stureplansgruppen, located at Sveavägen in Vasastan. In the grand dining room you can find families celebrating birthdays, friends meeting up for dinner, couples on their first date and business diners. And at least one Italian winemaker we've met have named L'Avventura the best Italian restaurant in town. The pasta dishes are to die for. L'Avventura has an Italian American style and we think Tony Soprano would have felt at home at a corner table.

When winemakers arrive in Stockholm, it's not rare to find them here.

But even though it's been open for ever (or more than 30 years), it can still get packed - reservations are wise. The restaurateurs are Johan Jureskog and Klas Ljungquist - the team behind AG.
