It might have begun life as a restaurant serving bog standard Chinese fare in the 1940s but the modern Asiatiska is a different beast entirely. Serving a mixture of Asian cuisines, it does the best steamed dim sum in Stockholm as well as quirkier dishes based on local ingredients such as pike finished in a Japanese style.Address:

Edsbacka WärdshusPrice: Expensive
Going back to its roots since renowned chef Christer Lingström packed up and left with his two Michelin stars, Edsbacka Wärdshus is a wonderful inn-like restaurant that concentrates on traditional Swedish fare that changes with the seasons. Food has been dished up here since 1626 but it’s hard to believe it’s as good as the Barbary duck with red wine rhubarb that they serve today.Address:

Rolfs KökPrice: Moderate
