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.

We often eat at Michelin 3 star restaurants when in Europe. This is a 2 star restaurant deserving of a 3d star. You are first seated in a separate room where you can have a glass of champagne. You are then bought into the kitchen for 3 small tastings each of which is fantastic. You are then... read more

We had dinner, the tasting menu, and I thought everything I had was excellent (a few adjustments to remove truffles from my dishes, I had the scallop main course and an alternative dessert, based on strawberries as I don't like yoghourt which featured on the main menu). From the small dishes in the (amazingly calm) kitchen, through all the other... More

It seems to us that Michelin is more forgiving in considering restaurants outside France. Not so respecting Matthias. Personally, we would have given it a third star, but for the absence of drama and service ranging from obsequious to “we were evidently mistaken to allow you into our shrine”, none of which is, in our experience, a welcome addition to...

We have been to Matsalen in Mai for Diner. Due to our late booking request, we were offered to seat on the "Chief Table", a table located near on the 2 kitchens where you can see the team finalizing dishes. That was ok, but I would rather recommend to book a table in the main dining room. Now concerning the... More

Matsalen was my first real experience with Scandinavian food and it was a wonderful experience. Starting in the kitchen with "snacks" with the chef, you are given a glass of champagne and a few small amuse bouche type things and you get to chat with the chef. After that, we were taken to our table where the food kept coming,... More

Don't expect the usual Michelin star restaurant experience, typically Swedish cuisine which won't be to everyone's taste.

We were taken to Matsalen by a Swedish friend and were treated to the natural tasting menu. The evening started with wine and amuse buche in the kitchen with chef Luke. We then went to the dining room room which felt comfortable and like dining in a friend's home as the there was a serving / prep area just through... More

This small Swedish restaurant in the grand hotel had exceptional service, a small but amazingly well selected wine list and a tasting menu that was as good as any we have had at great Parisian restaurants like guy savoy and newer innovative ones like le passage and spring. Each course\'s presentation was exceptional, the sublime combinations of seafood, leaves, spices,... More

We went there with my wife for a nice evening. The service was friendly and the meal very good, with some very inventive recipes, but we were shocked by the price (over 700 euros) especially that we were served simple wines and did not take any extras. Far too expensive for what it is.
