When Restaurant Frantzén re-opened in September 2018, they quickly and justly gained a lot of attention, and only half a year later the restaurant was awarded three Michelin stars – the first and only three-star in Sweden.

You start with some appetizers in the livingroom-like lounge and then eat the main courses seated by the wooden bar right in front of the open kitchen.

By the Glass Wine List of the Year Sweden, presented by Le Verre de Vin by Sparkling Ideas 2020
Operakällaren in Stockholm’s Opera House is probably the most beautiful dining room in Sweden. And the service is like a scene from the Opera stage, professional, classic and warm. The menu is French-inspired, classical and executed at the highest level (one Michelin star). Downstairs, Operakällaren has opened the wine bar Nobiskällaren where you can enjoy a top glass of wine with a view of the wine cellar. Or go for a wine from the full wine list.

The fire is still burning at Ekstedt, which was one of the first to use fire as the main source of energy in the kitchen. The ambiance is warm (!), the food is as good as ever and the service is friendly and professional. The Swedish celebrity chef Niklas Ekstedt has left the daily flow but the food here is consistently very good.

Sushi Sho caused a splash when they were awarded a Michelin Star for their Omakase and Tsumami, the chef’s choice of sushi and small dishes to die for. All is served over the counter at high speed, like a proper Tokyo hangout. The wine and sake list is short but well balanced, and the cellar is growing.
