It’s been a roller-coaster year, with the closure of one-star favourites Gastrologik, Oaxen Krog and Agrikultur. But it’s not all gloom – on a brighter note, the year’s standout moment came when Aira bagged two coveted Michelin stars. From innovative dishes to world-class chefs, Stockholm continues to be a hot spot for food enthusiasts. Here’s the updated roundup of Stockholm’s 13 Michelin stars for 2023, bestowed upon 9 remarkable restaurants.

Frantzén

What makes Frantzén, a 23-seat Michelin three-star restaurant – Sweden’s only – so memorable is not only the remarkable food and outstanding service but also the truly how the immersive dining experience involves all three floors of a Stockholm townhouse, designed by local interior architectural studio Joyn. Chef Björn Frantzén’s food is a unique hybrid of Nordic cuisine with Asian notes that will blow your mind.

Aira Stockholm Sweden restaurant

Aira

In the light and airy dining room of Aira, a restaurant located in Stockholm’s harbour, chef Tommy Myllymäki serves up a sensual feast for the eyes and taste buds. While the dishes are prepared using Nordic ingredients, inspiration comes from across the globe. Aira, by iconic architect Jonas Bohlin, was awarded ‘best Swedish interior design’ in 2020.

Aloë

The residential neighbourhood of Hökmossen is an unlikely spot for a two Michelin star restaurant, but chefs Niclas Jönsson and Daniel Höglander effectively prove that Aloë’s success is found in other aspects than an A+ location. The warm and welcoming decor of the open kitchen and dining room takes its cues from the look and feel of a contemporary understated luxury villa. We highly recommend getting a seat at the bar to watch the chefs in action as they prepare a globally influenced menu with bold flavours and wonderful textures.

Adam / Albin

A glamourous and moody dining room sets the tone for what is to come: a gastronomic spectacle that is sure to wow guests. With an intricate food philosophy sprung from Nordic cuisine, chefs and owners Adam Dahlberg and Albin Wessman don’t fail to surprise and delight with their sometimes decadent and other times surprisingly pared-down flavours.

Ekstedt Stockholm Sweden restaurant

Ekstedt

Chef Niklas Ekstedt loves to play with fire at his eponymous Stockholm restaurant and takes on the New Nordic Cuisine with an added dose of charcoal, soot and smoke. His inspiration is his remote countryside upbringing in the tiny village of Järpen, and a set of 18th-century cookbooks that detail Swedish cooking before the advent of electricity. The result achieved from the heat of the wood-burning oven, fire pit and chargrill is no small feat. Make sure to reserve a seat at the counter for a firsthand view of the action.

Etoile

Located on an unassuming throughway on the outskirts of town, Etoile’s rough, exposed brick space sets the unlikely scene for an outstanding dining experience. Inspired by their travels across the world, chefs Jonas Lagerström and Danny Falkeman have composed an inventive, playful and flavoursome 20-course menu (with accompanying beverages) that are far from the traditional fine-dining fare.

Nour Stockholm Sweden restaurant

Nour

Anyone who’s had a taste of Swedish chef Sayan Isaksson’s culinary compositions knows that they possess a refinement and sophistication not often found in Stockholm. Nour, located on the third floor in an inner-city townhouse, is no exception. Nour, which is Arabic for light and named after Isaksson’s daughter, brings together Nordic and Asian (predominately Japanese) flavours and techniques. Expect a dining experience that is light, casual and almost like spending an evening in a good friend’s home.

Operakällaren

A favourite hangout among artists, politicians and celebrities in the 1930s, Operakällaren, set within the historic Opera House, retains its history as one of Sweden’s most famous dining rooms. And what a dining room it is. The original gilded oak wall panelling and chandeliers are all still part of the grand restaurant that under Chef de Cuisine Viktor Westerlind specialises in traditional French dishes with a contemporary flair.

Sushi Sho

One of Stockholm’s smallest sushi bars is also its best. Sushi Sho, a hole-in-the-wall that can seat only twelve guests at a time, is the brainchild and culinary playground of Japanese-Swedish chef Carl Ishizaki, also called the ‘sushi jedi’. Meals are served omakase-style, which is a form of Japanese dining in which guests leave themselves in the hands of a chef and receive a meal which is seasonal, elegant, artistic and uses the finest ingredients available.
