“Fantastic ambience, really showcased most of what Sweden has to offer in one evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Myself and my girlfriend popped into this fine establishment for a birthday dinner whilst we were on a weekend away (for a friends wedding). Bookings were very straightforward and they were kind enough not to make a fuss when two other friends pulled out last minute. The restaurant itself is tastefully decorated, very vintage and right up my street. Music was lovely- old jazz. The meal began with us sat down on some leather couches having the dining experience explained to us by our lovely waitress- whether we wanted to dine a la carte or if we wanted to try the taster menu. Now here I should explain- the taster menu consists of 5 dishes (2 starters/2 mains/1 dresser) and each month they pit cuisines from two different regions of Sweden against each other (changing the menu monthly). The evening we happened to be dining they were sampling cuisine from Gotland and Halland, naturally we opted for the taster menu. They did warn us the meal would take approximately 2.5 hours. As we had the whole evening ahead we were in no rush and managed to fit in a game of chess and sample some aquavidt. The meal itself was inexplicably delightful. Each course completely different to the other, it was a genuine swedish dinner. Certainly worth the time and money spent. I can't recommend this restaurant enough to anyone passing through Stockholm, especially if you're only in the country for a short while. We were certainly in agreement that this ranked up there as one of the best meals we'd ever had. Visit quick before the rest of Stockholm realise!!

“Good food and nice service but still hungry!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Me and me girlfriend ate a 2 course dinner. We liked the location and atmosphere but we were very disappointed how SMALL the dishes were. Even though we paid 700 or 800sek for all of it we had do go home and eat something because we were so hungry!

“Eccentric twist on the traditional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We chose this restaurant because of a romantic attachment to Gotland which is one of the areas featured in Oxelblom's menu. The food was good, I loved my beets and the lamb was nicely cooked, but the wine list was disappointing. I appreciated the smaller portion sizes and hubby went for the tasting menu so he was happy. Our waiter and waitress were friendly and keen to be helpful. We enjoyed the decor, which reminded us of a twist on Mormor (grandmother)'s flat. A nice alternative if you're already in the Södermalm area, but I'm not sure that it is worth the trip from central Stockholm.

“Regional delights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

From the moment you walk through the door, you can tell it is a classy establishment and a different experience. They have two regional taster menus which are changed every so often. Rather than just being given a menu, the waitress sat with us on a comfy sofa to talk through the options, before taking us to our table. She also gave us plenty of attention between courses, which made the whole experience very personal.
We took one of each menu and could therefore sample each others'. The food was wonderful - perfectly cooked and very tasty. The portions were small, but I felt more than satisfied by the end of the meal - and I have a big appetite!
All in all it was a very special meal and I would highly recommend it for a special occasion.

“We left hungry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Whilst the food was undeniably delicious, my starter and main course could have fitted onto a saucer with room to spare. If you don't want to spend £50 per head on the taster menu don't be surprised to go home hungry! We had to fill up with snacks when we got back to our apartment.
