Matsalen is a modern gastronomic restaurant. Our cuisine is based on using the best fresh produce available here and now in Sweden and other parts of the world, spiced with curiosity and inspiration from everything we encounter.

"The natural cuisine" is a menu that changes with nature and the seasons. We pair wine, beer and other beverages with each of the dishes we create.

All the producers we work with are meticulously selected, they produce something we like. Our menu and drink offering - like the fresh produce - are living and change with the time of the year.

A true paradise for a food nerd.

A true gastonomique experience from start to end. A very personal and warming start, with a walk through the kitchen and a exquisit appetizer served by the chefs. The menu was amazing and the staff extremely friendly and professional - yet not as stiff as at a lot of other "star" restaurants. Very... read more

This restaurant does not only offer food, they offer an experience. If you enjoy high quality food, new taste experiences and superb service this is the place to be. Costly (for 2 people we left with the bill around 9000 SEK/!,000 Euro) - but doing it very seldom it really is worth the money spent. Extra bonus - a private... More

Without time to book a table, we just had the chance to go to the bistro, that was a real good experience and a way to discover the svedish cuisine. Nice, neither so expensive. To go absolutely.

I cannot find the words how to describe this amazing restaurant. Absolutely perfect - exceeded all the expectations we had. A quality of food, wines and service was 10+. Thank you all for making a special night and dinner for us. This is a place worth to travel outside of Sweden as well.

We dined at Matsalen at the end of October 2015. The meal begins by our being shown into the kitchen by the chef and meeting the sous-chefs, with amuse-bouches as we have it all explained. Then to the table where iPads display the food and wines to be served. The food is based on Hunter or Fisherman themes (actually only... More

This is a two starred Michelin restaurant. We booked in advance and got a nice, cosy table close to the window. The meal started in the kitchen with appetizers. The set menu was excellent with an interesting match of wines with a core last of the sweet. Experiential :-) Lovely service.
