Description: Djuret is Leijontornets bistro. At Djuret we serve one animal at the time. We concider this to be the most sustainable way to work with the slaughtered animal both from an organic perspective but also out of respect to the animal in question. The whole menu consists of different meat paragraphs from the same animal. These are prepared with a lot of love on the grill, halster or in a pot and then served in a rustik way.

“Heavy meat dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Lots of meat choices. Chef has a heavy hand with spices. Overpowers meat flavors. Could use a salad with meal.

“A bit challenging, but they do well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Ate here solo when in Stockholm for work as I was intrigued by the "one beast at a time" approach. It worked for me. I had the tartare as a starter. Was very good, but realistically the only option for me as I am selective re the offal I eat and the other choices were mixed. So sweetbreads...yes. But raw heart? Just a bit far for me.

Main was a very good piece of liver, delivered pink. However, the caperberries in sauce were too much. Far too powerful a flavour for this dish, chef. Or indeed any other dish I can imagine. The bacon and ordinary capers were good, and enough flavour. Then a piece of hard aged Swedish cheese that had good flavour.

I had a good local draughr beer, and a couple of glasses of a perfectly respectable Burgundy. First glass from an oxidized bottle and immediately replaced. That was typical of the good although relaxed service. All in all a good experience.

“Delightful High-end Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The restaurant is situated the picturesque streets of Gamlastan, which is Stockholm's Old Town.

The restaurant is small enough to feel homely, and the service was attentive without being overbearing.

This month is chicken and duck month, and we skipped the starters and ordered duck main courses which were both delicious, both followed by "All the cheese". With a nice bottle of red wine, the bill came to SKK 1,360 including tip.

I will definitely return, possibly to sample the all-you-can-eat tasting menu, although it will need to be a special occasion, as that menus costs SKK 765 without drinks per head.

Thoroughly recommended.

“This is NOT a tourist trap - high end food and very nice ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Djuret is a concept restaurant which uses the whole animal when designing the dishes. They change animal almost every month, and this month it was milk cow and rabbit on the menu. Djuret offer a la carte, but also a Grand deluxe-menu, which is their tasting menu. That basically means that they bring you everything on the menu, until you say stop, i.e., the food keeps coming until you can't take it anymore.

This might seem tacky - and touristy - but believe me, restaurang Djuret is anything but touristy, this is a high end restaurant and recommended by Michelin.

We had the Grand deluxe-menu, and it started with deep fried pig skins and a - of course home-made - chili mayonnaise to dip the skins in. The skins were crisp, fresh and wonderful with the chili mayonnaise. The next course became my favourite: rooster liverpaté with pickled red onion which looked like rose petals, cornichons and a jam - the best liver paté I've ever had and I've eaten a few fois gras in Paris.

Among the eclectic, but yet homogene menu (the theme was after all cow and rabbit) there was marrow toast with roe and the fluffiest slice of brioche life can bring, a sausage made from the chuck, relaxing in a rich, beautifully balanced ox tail broth with generous shavings of truffles, a terrine of rabbit and ducks liver.... Everything beautifully plated and well balanced. Well, I had 10 courses before I had to put an end to it - my boyfriend manage to eat 11.... And all that food for only 795 SEK (give or take 100 USD or 100 Euro)! Spread out, each course was less than what a lunch costs in Stockholm City!

The reason why I think it deserves a 4 and not a 5 is the service. I dislike being served by different people during my dinner - this evening we had four different waiters! And one of them rubbed her nose (not very hygienic) while thinking about what wine to recommend us, and then, with the same fingers that just were at her nose, picked up my boyfriend's water glass at the brim - not the foot of the glass. She also felt stressed, like she thought we were annoying for asking for her recommendations. And - there were some small pieces of cartilage or bones in my rabbit paté, and when I pointed that out to another waiter, he didn't appologize, but answered "that's how you know it's home made!".

Well, apart from that, we were a very happy and a very full couple when we left the restaurant.

I highly recommend restaurang Djuret.

“Great food, nice atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I've eaten at this restaurant twice, once with my partner and once with a group of colleagues, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience both times.

The menu consists of a few dishes all made from the same animal, with the menu/animal changing every 3 to 4 weeks. On the occasions that I've visited reindeer and elk have been on the menu. They also have a great wine list.

Eating out in Stockholm is not cheap and I think this restaurant is extremely good value for money.

The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. They are attentive but do not bother you.

I like the atmosphere in Djuret. It's cosy and intimate. The butcher inspired decor- meat hooks for coat hooks, meat mincers for lamps etc is tastefully done.

For meat lovers willing to try something a bit different I would definitely recommend this restaurant but make sure you make a reservation to avoid disappointment.
