Six Michelin Star Restaurants to Know in Stockholm

Michelin star restaurants in Sweden aren’t hard to come by, and Stockholm is the city with the higest concentration of them. Awarded on a scale of one to three every year by the Guide Michelin, Michelin stars represent excellent food, service, and consistency.

While there is only one three-star restaurant in Stockholm (Frantzén), there are two two-star spots and seven one-star restaurants, for a city total of ten. There are 13 Michelin star restaurants, with either one or two stars, spotted around the rest of Sweden.

While many of the celebrated restaurants in Stockholm focus on New Nordic cuisine, there are other kitchens on offer, including sushi at Sushi Sho and wood-fired meats at Ekstedt. If you’re looking for an unforgettable dining experience in Sweden’s captial, those places with a Michelin star (or two or three) are a good place to start.

These are the Michelin star restaurants to know in Stockholm:

Frantzén

The only restaurant in Stockholm – and even in Sweden – with three Michelin stars, Frantzén has cemented its reputation as one of the most innovative, beautiful, and delicious New Nordic restaurants in Scandinavia. Led by head chef Björn Frantzén, the kitchen produces dishes from local and seasonal ingredients with an artistic and often humorous twist.

Their fixed menu is 3.500 SEK so…not exactly your typical night out. But if you are looking for a meal that is as much a work of art as it is sustenance, you really can’t go wrong with Frantzén.

Frantzén

Klara Norra Kyrkogata 26
111 22 Stockholm

Opening Hours:
Sun – Tues Closed
Weds – Sat Lunch from 12:30 – 1:45 pm, Dinner from 7:00 pm

 

 
 

Oaxen Krog

Oaxen Krog, along with it’s sister bistro Oaxen Slip, is nestled in the beautiful Djurgården, right on the water. The building, which was designed by architects Mats Fahlander and Agneta Pettersson, is nearly as big a draw as the food; huge glass panes let in light and showcase the waterfront.

Krog is a New Nordic restaurant with a focus on seafood. The menu is always seasonal and local, with a focus on ethical agriculture and animal-rearing. They have a fantastic wine list that highlights smaller vineyards across Europe.

After your meal, ask if you can take a look around Prince van Orängien, the converted Dutch riverboat docked by the restaurant that now serves as a super-small (and chic!) hotel.

Beckholmsvägen 26
115 21 Stockholm

Opening Hours
Sun & Mon Closed
Tues – Sat from 6:00 pm

 

 
 

Ekstedt

Opened by renown Swedish chef Niklas Ekstedt, this restaurant is a little different than your typical gourmet fare. Instead of delicate plates of painstakingly plated food, you get ingredients cooked over an open flame. That doesn’t make the food any less refined or tasty; the result is a rustic take on the New Nordic tradition.

Ekstedt offers a small menu (four courses) and a full menu (6 courses), both of which explore different fire cooking techniques including smoking, blackening, and wood-firing, among others.

Expert tip: if you’re a cook under 25 years old, you can write to the restaurant to receive 50% off their six course menu price Tuesday – Thursday. How lovely!

Ekstedt

Humlegårdsgatan 17
114 46 Stockholm

Opening Hours:
Sun & Mon Closed
Tues – Thurs from 6:00 pm
Fri from 5:00 pm
Sat from 4:00 pm

 

 
 

Agrikultur

It’s all about the veggies at Agrikultur. This charming, welcoming restaurant serves four and five course menus that highlight the best local vegetables of the season. For those looking for a gourmet yet unpretentious experience, this is your spot.

Their sister restaurant in Stockholm, Bar Agrikultur, is more casual and affordable, but shares similar menu offerings and overall focus.

Agrikultur

Roslagsgatan 43
113 54 Stockholm

Opening Hours:
Sun & Mon Closed
Tues – Sat 5:00 pm – midnight

 

 
 

Sushi SHO

Specializing in Edomae sushi, Sushi SHO has quickly become a favorite purveyor of Japanese flavors and techniques in Stockholm. Edomae is a type of sushi that originated in Tokyo in the 17th century, and has its roots in quickly-made street food, sold in booths on the street. The dishes historically focused on one flavor profile, though that has changed over the centuries.

Sushi SHO takes the Edomae tradition and adds in Nordic ingredients and flavors. The resulting fusion menu is made up of only Omakase and Tsumami: small dishes and nigiri sushi. There are 12 seats at the bar with an additional four on a sofa to the side, and guests are all served at the same time by the chef. It’s an incredibly intimate and unforgettable experience.

Sushi SHO

Upplandsgatan 45
113 28 Stockholm

Opening Hours:
Sun & Mon Closed
Tues – Fri 5:00 – 11:00 pm
Sat 1:00 – 11:00 pm

 

 
 

Gastrologik

Using a kitchen philosophy they call “logical gastronomy,” founders and chefs Jacob Holmström and Anton Bjuhr have created perhaps the most farm-to-table of the Michelin star restaurants in Stockholm. Gastrologik only uses Swedish ingredients, and works closely with farmers for each menu item so that they can vouch for not only quality, but also transparency and ethical production.

The interior of the restaurant is ultra-modern and minimalist, as is the look of the dishes. At heart, though, this is about taking pride in local ingredients and the traditions of Swedish/Nordic cuisine.

Gastrologik

Artillerigatan 14
114 51 Stockholm

Opening Hours:
Sun & Mon Closed
Tues – Sat from 6:00 pm
