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.

Innovative and flavorfull food!

Went to Bockholmen for dinner with business guests on a thursday evening. Great location if you want to get out of the city hustle. Truly feels as countryside despite just 10 min from city center. Menu is quite short but well balanced - 4 starters, 4 main courses. I had the birchwood smoked salmon... read more

This is a place with very good food, nice atmosphere, nice winelist and not that expensive. I really enjoyed dinner with friends and we were very well taken care of. Quality of food is great - portions are ok.

The terrace is wonderful to spend a summer evening in. The service was friendly and the food was tasty. Seasonal ingredients were utilized. I would definitely visit this place again.

Great location next to the water and clearly very popular with locals and visitors. Ate here with colleagues one evening and would recommend you book before you travel. Stayed at the Stallmasteregarden Hotel, which was approximately a 50 minute walk from the restaurant (roadside or lake). Service was very attentive and there was a good selection on the menu for...

Been coming here for summer lunch year after year. The food has always been great. The setting is really nice. But the service! It's as inconsistent as can be. Somewhat friendly at best. Most of the time grumpy and stressed. It's peak hour lunch, I understand that. But a little improvement can go a long way. Then this place will... More

The restaurant is located next to a small marina and has a fantastic view of the archipelago. I think it is a little tricky to get here by public transport. The last time I was here was 6 years ago for lunch and enjoyed it back then. This time, it was for a summer buffet lunch. We were a group... More

What happened, Bockholmen? This place used to be pretty good for family dinners. Now, I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy. Visited in June for a Family Birthday dinner. Food = bad, service = baad, portions = baaaad. Setting = yes, it is still breathtaking, like a villa in the archipelago with a lovely garden. Our family of 8... More
