“The freshest taste of spring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the warm atmosphere and culinary sophistication of this restaurant which went above and beyond our expectations (see photos). In addition to the excellent service and wine, the appetizers were playful and rich in flavor ranging from a sweet and salty macaroon to a heavenly Berkshire pork bouillon flavored with truffle. Every dish was exquisitely composed to let the ingredients shine through.

We went for the Spring tasting menu and were impressed by the sophisticated presentation, flavor combinations, and varied textures. Particularly memorable was the langoustine with perfect juiciness balanced with a very light lemon cream and crispy celeriac and the aromatic Berkshire pork with baby vegetables dotted with garlic and herb emulsion. The usage of unusual herbs such as mustard herb and cress also helps to bring out a hidden dimension of each dish.

When the desserts were presented, our server came by and offered us a dessert wine tasting with three different wines for each dessert which was the highlight of the evening. The nuanced wine pairings reflected the mastery of the sommelier who described to us how the wines were selected for their slightly different acidity levels to accentuate the flavors of the different desserts. The quality of both wines and dishes were exceptional in every way. The level of dedication and creativity of their entire team should not go unnoticed and I hope they receive a second Michelin star soon.

“Swedish Gastro haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I have now eaten here a number of times, all good, with definite interesting local flavours , and local sourced product, good ambiance, good location, good food, what more do you want? 30 years ago Stockholm was not a foody destination but it is getting that way. As for price yup its a tad wallet nibbling, but if you go for lunch and just stick to the daily special its always tasty and reasonable, cheap even,Go off piste and its pricy but good.

“A great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This offers food to make you think. It is interesting and challenging for the palate. The presentation is designed to have an element of theatre which accentuates the experience. I had the wine pairing which was sublime. It isn't cheap but definitely worth it. I think Lux is heading for another Michelin star and deserves it.

“Lunch special at Michelin Star rest. for 150SEK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

If you take a lunch special here, you'll have a great Michelin Star lunch for quite affordable prices (for Stockholm price levels).

149SEK bought me an amazingly tasty Swedish Meatballs lunch with mashed potatoes. You get some bread and a salad, and water anyway. For Stockholm prices, that's not bad at all.

I had a desert 120SEK and glass of good wine 120SEK too, that made it pricier, but I neededn't have done that.

Very much worth it.

“Excellent (now with a Michelin star)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Excellent modern cuisine, in a modern scandinavian atmosphere. It looks a bit cold as atmosphere goes, but the service and the food are beyond impeccable.
