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.

The courses was par excellence with nice selection of drinks. Old fashioned interiors with basic comforts. But what the heck, for this class of... read more

This is a culinary walk in paradise. Try to be seated next to the bar where you can experience the first class service with a closer look. No matter what you chose from the menu, the food is beyond expectations.

One of my top meals ever (right up there w a Tickets in Barcelona, a Mr Chow, Nobu, Jean George's ,The Ivy, Le Quartier Francais etc) - excellent service and memorable flavours and presentations - equally memorable was the bill - v v expensive so come prepared! A special treat though and well worth it!

I had a great time at this restaurant. I attended for a business meeting, the food was ridiculously fresh, innovative and each of the 15 courses tested incredible. The restaurant visit started off with a tour of the Kitchen and I would expect that the restaurant calls dining here "the experience" as they were keen to point out why they... More

I dined here alone but was well cared for by staff. Starting the meal in the kitchen with several chefs serving 'bites' is innovative...I really enjoyed interacting with them. Considering I am a gastronomic traveler, Chef Dahlgren is the reason I stayed at The Grand. Presentations really were a party and I appreciate the staff telling the history of the... More

This is a great restaurant for couples as well as business meetings. the staff is friendly and attentive, and the food is fun, beautiful and filled with michelin-quality-flavours. I would certainly come back here, but I would also be really really happy if they had other wines than "naturviner" (ecological, no additives, produced by small vineyards in the old-fashioned way...

This place was a wonderful surprise and a delightful memory of my recent trip to Stockholm. It's elegant and sophisticated with an amazing helpful and gorgeous staff. The minute you sit down (I sat at the counter), you are given a tray with a bag of bread and wonderful Swedish butter. The menu is your placemat and it's explained to... More

The dinner started with a presentation of the kitchen, followed by four small appetizers at the kitchen counter. An innovative welcome and delicious creations! This warm and different welcome was enhanced be the charming small talk by the two chefs who prepared and served the appetizers. A unique, and probably trendsetting, approach to bringing your guests into the dining room.... More
