Whether you are a picky connoisseur or just want to have a good dinner, there’s a restaurant in Östermalm for you. It houses some of Stockholm’s most classic restaurants and award-winning star restaurants. And they have the excellent company of genuine neighborhood restaurants and ‘small holes in the wall.’ In short, there’s something for everyone.

To help you find the right restaurant for you in Stockholm’s most exclusive district, we have selected 10 of Östermalm’s best restaurants – and thus also Stockholm’s best restaurants. Welcome to a culinary journey!

01

Sturehof

It isn’t possible to talk about good restaurants in Östermalm without mentioning Sturehof. It’s a classic institution in Stockholm in the middle of Stureplan. You come here to have a beer or drink at the bar, eat home cooking, celebrate something with beautiful seafood plateaus, or just mingle and look for celebrities. The food and atmosphere are unique, and it’s hard to find something like this in Stockholm or the rest of Sweden.

PA&Co

If any restaurant can compete with Sturehof’s icon status, it’s PA&Co. This classic establishment dates back to the mid-80s. In 2006, a new group of restaurateurs took over and created the restaurant as we know it today. Lovely, intimate, loud atmosphere full of fantastic restaurant noise, excellent food and drink, and a place to be seen. You’ll find it on the hilltop of Riddargatan, and when you enter through the doors, you immediately understand why PA & Co is one of Östermalm’s absolute best restaurants.

Adam/Albin

The duo Adam and Albin have taken their place on Stockholm’s restaurant map and consolidated it over the years. Among their four restaurants, it’s Adam/Albin that showcases their original style and noblest cuisine. The menu has its origins in Nordic cuisine and is described as a gastronomic dining experience where they redefine the otherwise exclusive meal with a passion for exceptional ingredients. In other words, well worth a visit to Rådmansgatan.

04

Bar Central

Sure, the restaurant has a centrally located bar in the room, but the name alludes to where Bar Central gets its inspiration from – Central Europe. And they do it exceptionally well. Bar Central has added something unique to the capital’s restaurant scene. Food, drink, and decor – yes, everything speaks Central Europe with Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, and the Czech Republic at the forefront. Not entirely unexpectedly, it can be a bit difficult to get a table, so book in time. The wonderful atmosphere, the service, and the generous portions make you always feel that you get more than you pay for – and make Bar Central one of the best restaurants in Östermalm.

Nybrogatan 38

Nybrogatan 38 could be called the neighborhood restaurant of the neighborhood restaurants in Östermalm. Located at the same address as the name reveals, this favorite always offers a great atmosphere, perfect service, and a very nice selection on the menus. Here you can enjoy several popular classics, and it’s a lot of regulars in both the dining room and the bar. The menu is French-inspired with fun elements from other parts of Europe, and the same goes for the wine list. Here you can have breakfast, lunch, dinner, and takeaway.

Halv Grek plus Turk

Halv Grek plus Turk has been located in the somewhat hidden street corner of Jungfrugatan / Tyskbagargatan since 1996. And the ingenious name reveals the type of food served here – the best from the eastern Mediterranean region. The fact that this gem has delighted Östermalm for so many years shows that the restaurant always delivers good food and a fun atmosphere. A different and wonderful addition to the more traditional restaurants in the same area. It’s a great choice for both small and large parties, and they also offer a Chambre separée.

Italiano Ristorante

No list of Östermalm’s best restaurants is worth the name without a real ‘Italian.’ This classic has been in the game since the late ’80s. Italiano was started by Angelo Ottobre and is still run by the same family. Here they want to share their passion for Italian food and offer a part of ‘the real Italy.’ The food is classic Italian, and the recipes traditionally come from none other than the founder’s mother. The wine list also shows what Italy can do with many wines from the country’s different regions.

08

Villa Dagmar

It’s hard not to like restaurants located inside trendy boutique hotels, especially when it’s as beautifully and eclectically decorated as Villa Dagmar. Daniel Höglander and Niclas Jönsson, both acclaimed and innovative chefs, are in charge. The restaurant invests in combining gastronomy, heart, and high ambitions with warm and personal service. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night cocktails are served in this international atmosphere with keywords such as The real New Nordic and Mediterranean fusion

Brasserie Astoria

Astoria is one of Östermalm’s latest additions and perhaps one of the most anticipated. Directed by none other than Björn Frantzén, Sweden’s only three-star chef, this brasserie has opened in the old Astoria cinema on the restaurant-dense Nybrogatan. However, Astoria does not have the same ambitions as the award-winning sister restaurant; instead, it’s a luxurious brasserie with a beautiful cocktail bar. But with that said, you might want to bring a big wallet when you visit. Here you are offered an elegant and welcoming atmosphere, and a large and generous à la carte menu is available for both lunch and dinner. Extra plus goes to the large bar area, the wine bar, and the small intimate dining room where only drop-in guests are welcome.

Gastrologik

Speaking of luxury restaurants, we must, of course, include Gastrologik. With its two stars in the Michelin guide, it has its own place in Stockholm’s restaurant scene. There’s no menu to choose from; just sit down and see what’s served. The tasting menu is composed daily based on the finest ingredients, and the result is modern Scandinavian fine dining with that extra something. Gastrologik can compete with the top international restaurants and has received several awards. It’s a place for true foodies – here, you get an authentic Nordic luxury restaurant and a culinary dining experience you’ll remember.
