Bockholmen Hav & Restaurang probably has the best location of all Stockholm restaurants on the island of Bockholmen in the inner archipelago. A rural calm reins, so it is easy to rediscover your peace of mind after the stress of a few days in the big city. The restaurant is housed in a beautiful late 19th century building. The menu features dishes such as: steamed sea bass with petits pois, brandade, mange touts leaves and balsamic vinegar; and seafood bowl with long flounder, tuna, gambas, pilgrim scallops, squid, mussels, reduced lobster stock, tomato, fennel and broad beans. For dessert, you can enjoy an exotic fruit cocktail with vanilla cream, mango, pineapple and passion fruit.

We had our tradtional Swedish smorgasbord here for christmas. Theres was everything you can expect! We had a chambre separeté upstairs. The only down side was that we were seated in the room with the bathroom. Awesom food. Great surroundings!

This place has changed. The setting is the same, beautiful. The prices the same as before, but the service and food is mediocre at best. We went there with a big group and the staff at Bockholmen couldn't handle this. Not worth it primarily because of the unprofessional service.

Swedish friends took us to dinner there. Don't think foreign tourists would find the way, maybe a bit too remote. It is a very nice restaurant. Eating on the terrace gives you a great view. Large umbrellas keep you dry and blankets are handed out during a chilly summer evening. Friendly staff, all speak English (doesn't everybody in Sweden?). I... More

If your idea of a perfect restaurant is good food in an idyllic waterside location, then this is the place for you. The restaurant, though within the city limits, is located on a small island in an inlet of the Baltic sea. A short walk over a small bridge takes you to this lovely old house overlooking a small boat... More

We keep coming back to this BBQ buffet - it's small, well made and is served on the docks overlooking the inlet to Stockholm. The Bar is only open on sunny Summer days and serve a variety of excellent drinks and the small buffet hosts grilled vegetables, chicken, beef, salmon, sausages, salads and home made sauces. Always happy and friendly... More

We took our parents to this great restaurant for lunch, as we have been here a number of times and on different occasions and never been disappointed. Although slightly remote, actually good for keeping it from becoming overcrowded, the location on an island and by the water makes the outdoor seating on the veranda magnificent. Down by the water there... More
