Very good food and a nice atmosphere. The restaurant feels traditionally Scandinavian without any fuss. The breakfast buffet is nicely varied and a good experience, although it can get busy early in the morning.

Arrived pretty late, few guests, but kitchen still open. The restaurant is a real gem, very nice interior perfect for a business dinner or a romantic evening. I was delivered a huge G&T upon request, and then the menu. Ordered the "menu" which was three courses. Scallops as entry and fish as main course with berries and ice-cream as dessert.... More

I've had shrimps on dark bread, which is a simple dish and it can go wrong easily, but it was excellent. The service is great, the location is lovely as well. They also have a bar in the evening, which is quite empty most of the times, but I've enjoyed it nevertheless. I drank some of the best cocktails there,... More

I've visited this restaurant five times during the last 12 months. Initially it started out great - really fine cooking at a very reasonable price. But what has happened? The concept is great: put fish and shellfish from the Swedish West coast on the train ("Blå tåget" - run by the same owners), make these fresh ingredients to simple and... More

I'm in Heaven . . . That is exactly what I told the Chef de Maison while having something so extraordinarily brilliant that words still fail me. The name of the meal, you might wonder - Fired Crayfish. To make a long story a bit shorter, I am completely head over heels in love with Ostra. First, many years ago,... More

This place is tucked away in Stureplan ... and has an authentic interior that is hard to describe. The service is excellent and the food is divine. It is a favorite of mine.

Opened in July 2012 and is much better than the restaurant that used to occupy the same premises. Went there on a Monday evening with my wife and we had the 3-course tasting menu, which was to die for.
