A historic thick-walled building is home to Edsbacka Krog, which was the first licensed restaurant in Stockholm. Edsbacka welcomes you to fine dining in an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere. Executive Chef Christer Lingström creates a seasonally changing menu, using the freshest of ingredients. The restaurant is as popular for its romantic setting with candles lit on each table, as it is for its attractive presentation of delicious dishes. Relish Silltallrik for starters and Whitebait Roe with Marinated Halibut for the main course. Although the restaurant has a large dining room, the space seems inadequate after the evening crowd starts pulling in. Therefore, reservations are strongly recommended. Please check the website for timings.

Come winter and there is a pianist here on Fridays and Saturdays, so find your way to this bar in the Scandic Park Hotel, and enjoy "As Time Goes By" and other smooth evergreens.

When you feel that everything and everyone is against you, come to Cliff Barnes and propose a toast to the biggest loser in TV history, Cliff Barnes of Dallas fame. There are pictures on the walls of him losing all his money yet again to the ice-cold J R Ewing. The atmosphere is friendly and cheerful. The jokes come thick and fast; the whole menu is one big pun. This is a place for everyone: young or old, trendy or totally uncool. Be forewarned though, it can get quite boisterous here at night.
Typically set for an elegant evening, Champenoise is a wonderful place to dine in. Famous for Champagne, at Champenoise, guests can choose from a five-set dinner course with traditional European roots.

At Champenoise, patrons are assured a lovely evening.
Located in trendy Vasastan is the Sibiriens Soppkök, an underground soup kitchen that serves warm hearty meals. It is a cheap and cheerful venue, whose true value can be found during winter when temperatures in the city can plummet below zero. Customers can be found huddled around, seeking comfort from their bowls of blended parsnips and carrots. Lunchtime is especially busy during the week, and finding a table at these hours can be problematic. This aside, the Sibiriens Soppkök has a rustic feel to it that can warm the heart of those frozen by the outdoor snow. - Christian Tsangarides
