Yes, it is indeed an excellent venue for fine food, and not the slightest bit snooty. enjoyed the little touches that are the hallmark of fine establishements, meaning amuse-bouche and great bread selection and I mean....great... appetizers and mains on the same level. No desserts sampled that evening. wine list for connoisseurs, alas SEK prices scare us as we are... More

Fish all the way, a new wine with every course and finishing off with an amazing pudding with a posh desert wine was a treat. Great unpretentious service, simple but well cooked and served food and nice atmosphere, even if I was on my tod.

The service was well-informed and comfortable; the dining room was nicely lit & interesting. The food was very tasty, and well prepared. Definitely worth going, and one of our best dinners in Sweden!

I went for dinner to Magnus & Magnus in October 2013. This is a small restaurant so booking ahead is a good idea. We went for the 4 course menu with matching wines: amazing tastes!

We both had 2 course meals, My wife had foie gras and steak, I had lamb and a cake dessert. We both had the wine pairs. Different tastes would sometimes arrive at the table. It was just magnificent.
