Etoile is a fine dining restaurant near Norrtull in Stockholm. The name showed the ambitions and sure enough, a star in the Michelin Guide followed. Etoile goes for fun dining, a set menu with unexpected or even radical but tasty combos. The wine program has expanded since the start and showcases both classical and natural offerings, primarily from France, Germany and the US.

Vinverket, located in northern Vasastan in central Stockholm has a homely feeling and is more of a wine bar than a restaurant. Going down the stairs a few steps, and you'll find a wine cooler reaching from floor to ceiling, and a solid kitchen table serving both as bar and workplace. Walk a few more meters and sit down by the small tables, perfect for a tête a tête. You will be served smaller dishes, influenced by the Mediterranean cuisine.

The wood-fired oven is like a warm heart in the cosy little restaurant on Roslagsgatan. Magical and very natural dishes are brought from it by chefs Filip Fastén and Joel Åhlin. Despite its small and cosy format, Agrikultur has earned a star in the Michelin guide.

Wine bar and restaurant E & G (short for Egon and Gösen) is located at Birger Jarlsgatan in Stockholm, a few minute’s walk from the crowded neighbourhoods around Odengatan. The place is relaxed, like a living room away from home. The food is rustic and tasty and made for sharing – snacks, smaller dishes and stews. Small, intimate and cosy and with an interior where wine is, literally, all around you.

Roslagsgatan in the Vasastan neighbourhood may not look like much but you have a bunch of good gastronomic addresses. Prospero opened in 2019 and the little space a few steps down is very sparse. When the plates from the set menu arrives you will find more colour and taste, but still with simplicity. The wine program focuses on artisanal producers from Europe such as Julie Balagny and Strekov, which is all fine, but we also appreciate a few older bottles of Bordeaux as a contrast.

Vineriet or The winery has opened a few steps down from Roslagsgatan and it’s a cosy environment. The small kitchen turns out some classic tasty dishes, cheese and charcuterie. Founder Antoni Daoud has loaded the wine list to the brim with an impressive range, including a lot of mature stuff. Lovers of Piedmont and Tuscany are especially well taken care of.

With Mirabelle, sommelier David Lilja Lundin and chef Viktor Sandström have opened the French bistro they dreamed about, in the Vasastan neighbourhood of Stockholm. Monsieur Lundin was previously at Café Nizza where he managed the wine program. Mirabelle loves wine of course, but the list is fairly short, at least until more space is found. The food is rustic household French, and the paté de campagne makes us say oh la la. Did Vasastan really need another bistro? For a place like Mirabelle, there is always room.

Svartengrens states that it’s about meat, cocktails and love. May we add wine to that description? The restaurant sources all its meat from small farmers in Stockholm’s archipelago. The wine list sources from small producers as well and includes both natural and classical wines.

As the name implies, the Stockholm restaurant and wine bar Babette is a feast in itself. A place for lively discussions over delicious small plates and some of Stockholm's most tasty pizzas. But don't miss the other plates from the chef's menu. In summer the crowd spills out onto a small terrace.

Farang takes guests on a journey to Southeast Asian cuisines. The restaurant is located in an old factory hall and the rustic backdrop contrasts with the warm atmosphere. The restaurant is decidedly high end - great food. The bar in the front is cool and serves simpler dishes. For a fine dining lunch experience, this is one of my main choices in Stockholm.

Is it possible that German wines and food is becoming a thing in Stockholm? New addition Sekt serves a tasty modern south-German cuisine in a somewhat industrial modern bistro Berlin feeling in central Stockholm. No a la carte, two set menus. Drop in guests can order from a simpler bar menu.

Savant is a wine bar in Stockholm that changes profile during the day. From early morning it's a café and later in the day it turns into a neighbourhood wine bar with charcuteries and some small dishes. Everything is built around sustainability and the wines are in the natural style. Photos: Dan Lepp, Sandra Backlund

When winemakers arrive in Stockholm, it's not rare to find them here. The hearty French-inspired classical bistro cuisine is very wine-friendly and with its generous opening-hours all days of the week - it's a sure bet if other places are closed. 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.

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.

Grus Grus is the wine bar opened by Tranan just next door on Odenplan in Stockholm's Vasastan neighbourhood. Snacks, small dishes and larger dishes to share are served in the cosy space. The Grus Grus wine list offers mostly wines from small-scale producers, often with an organic and natural focus. But be sure to check out the shelves in the wine fridge, where unlisted treasures from the Tranan “secret” wine cellar can be found at very attractive prices.

Carl Ishizaki's 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.

Lilla Ego is well known for being run by three Chefs of the Year in Sweden and for being fully booked. However, you can come early and wait around for one of the drop in seats to be free, you will not be alone, nor disappointed. Although people come for the food, we also like to go there for the wine and relaxed ambiance. The Lilla Ego two wine lists are not the longest in town, but there is real breadth. The wine lists wines from well known wine regions like Burgundy, Piedmont, Wachau and California – some with good age too.

The Swedish Chef of the Year 2012, Klas Lindberg, opened his dream bistro in 2016 and the accolades did not wait. The food is modern Nordic, mixes classics with modern takes and is superb. The wine list is varied and growing - and the service team is professional. This is a solid recommendation if you want to experience Stockhholm dining. There is also a separate bar and dining room across the portal(!) from the restaurant.

Ambar is the Stockholm wine bar that likes to serve orange wines and beverages, hence the name that plays on amber. But there are plenty of other colours and types on the wine list. If you are hungry, there are delicious small dishes with touches of Japanese cuisine.
