Ulriksdal's Wärdshus, located on the shores of Edsviken bay, is one of the remaining few, old rural inns. Dating back to the seventeenth century, it is situated close to Ulriksdal's Royal Palace. The Swedish flag is ceremonially lowered every evening at sunset, while the Swedish National Anthem is played in the background. Very traditional and aristocratic! In the evenings, you may choose between a monthly prix fixe dinner and the à la carte menu, which lists both Swedish and international specialities. Weekends only, the famous smörgåsbord lasts all afternoon. Timings vary according to the month of the year so you may want to refer to the website for details.
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. Bring your date with you, sink down into the classic lounge armchairs, check out the super-cool close-fitted carpet in a leopard pattern and listen to the international chorus of voices—French, Italian, Japanese, etc.
Enjoy excellent Mediterranean food in this romantic restaurant. The great service and good prices make this a great dining experience.
Mouth-watering cuisine, a relaxed ambiance and friendly service have earned Stockholm's Matvarufabrik, the reputation of being one of the most popular restaurants in the city. The French specialties, which include escargots served with garlic butter, and moules frites are delicious. Mostly frequented by families and young couples, this place is definitely worth a visit.
The food here is well prepared and everything from the menu to the interior décor is genuinely Italian. This is a superb place to enjoy a three-course meal, and the setting is romantic. The service by the Italian waitstaff is very good and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. A lot of people come by, so don't forget to book a table.
Birkastans Pizzeria has been attracting customers for the past 13 years. It is the sheer size of the pizza that brings people flocking to this place. It is crowded on Saturdays and Sundays. Takeaway orders are encouraged, and the unusual feature of this Swedish pizzeria, is that it serves beer and wine too.
This is one of many English pubs in town, but the Bagpiper's Inn never seems to lose its old world charm. Between its next-door neighbours the Boomerang Hotel and The Bald Eagle, Bagpiper's is always the busiest place. The inside is done up in a Scottish theme. You can try a large selection of beer and have the pleasure of being served by kilt—clad male waiters. The clientele consists of people of all kinds — young and old, people in jeans and suits, both sober and drunk. A lot of people drop in for a quick drink after work. The menu consists of the standard pub selection, with burgers and fish and chips. Servings are large, and worth the money. Here you can also treat yourself to the classic bacon—and—egg brunch on Sundays.
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.
Rött is one of many lovely establishments on Rörstrandsgatan. It is a cool restaurant, and you will not be disappointed.
