Why: This restaurant is perfect for any occasion, whether you are looking for a place to start a night out with your friends, having family dinner or just want to play chess with your date – yes, you can actually sit in the bar and play some board games while enjoying an excellent glass of red wine.
Where: Artillerigatan 56, 114 45 Stockholm
Why: This restaurant is a favorite of mine when it comes to Neapolitan pizza. The pleasant murmur that emerges from the buzzable environment creates an atmosphere that guarantees a memorable evening. This is the antidote to a stiff ambience.
Where: Skånegatan 47, 116 37 Stockholm
Why: Oaxen Slip, located on the island of Djurgården in central Stockholm is one of my favorite go-to restaurants when spring has arrived in Stockholm. I love to start off with a Gin & Tonic outside in the late afternoon sun and then go inside to enjoy uncomplicated but truly magical dishes.
Where: Beckholmsvägen 26, 115 21 Stockholm
Why: This is a relatively newly discovered favourite. What I love about Symbios is how they perfectly balance everything from food to decor. The service is spot-on. Friendly, good attention to detail and there when you need them. The food is elegant and plays with your senses in unexpected ways. A somewhat different ambience than what you’re used to in Stockholm. Highly recommended.
Where: Skånegatan 80, 116 37 Stockholm
Why: My go-to dinner place every Sunday. Located in my neighborhood at Hantverkargatan 76, Kungsholmen. Charming Italian atmosphere and staff who always feel one more than welcome. Their wood-fired pizza. Their pasta made from traditional Italian recipes. Impeccable. A personal favourite is their Tagiatelle Vitello together with a San Pellegrino Aranciata.
Where: Hantverkargatan 76A, 112 38 Stockholm
