“Wanted to love it -- really we did! (Also read for $ saving tip!)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Ulla Winbladh was suggested to us as a place to have a "traditional" Swedish meal, and we reviewed some of the reviews on Trip Advisor and thought it sounded nice. We visited a couple of museums in the area and went to the restaurant for a 7:30 reservation. The food was average at best -- but perhaps I'm not much of a herring fan -- and pretty pricey. The staff struck us as a little pompous and full of themselves (almost like you might expect in a Parisian restaurant). I had a seafood stew, which was just okay. My husband had a beef dish that he liked, but wasn't crazy over. My "apple terrine" was some tart baked apples smushed together between what seemed like graham crackers. All seemed too pretentious without bringing it home in a meaningful way. But, I wanted to make readers aware that IF you choose to check your coat (which they pretty much insist that you do at the front door), you can be prepared to pay 15 SEK per item. I felt like this was something that should have been explained up front and was not happy about it. So, all things considered, I probably would not return to this place when I return to Sweden.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Amazing food. We were there during summer, had a table outside and enjoyed the fresh air of Djurgården. But you go to this place mainly because of the food.

“Luxuriate in the ambiance and enjoy a great dinner !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Our swedish friends recommended us to to dine in this wonderfully furbished restaurant - located amongst a great expanse of gardens and greenery - which provided impeccable service, wonderfully prepared dishes.
The decor matches with the outer surroundings. I felt I was dining in an "öutdoor-indoor" garden. We were warmly welcomed and we were not rushed to place our order. The food was well prepared, the wine list was extensive. Very pricey, but worth the experience.

“Always classy and reliable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is an old favourite. Unlike many of Stockholm's better restaurants, the atmosphere at Ulla Winbladh is very calm and relaxed.

The setting is lovely in Djurgarden, a lovely leafy area close to the city centre. The decor and feel is that of a country house.

The food is based on classic Swedish home cooking, delivered in the style of a serious restaurant.
We had toast Skagen followed by sausage with beetroot.. Could have been a cliche, but both were superb, in presentation and execution.

Service is crisp and friendly, and the wine list contains some real bargains, by Swedish standards.

A must for visitors to Stockholm, particularly if you feel like a rest from the buzz of the city centre venues.

“Good Old Reliable Ulla Windbladh's!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

I was first introduced to Ulla Windbladh's in December 1996 - not the best time of the year to visit anywhere in Sweden, but I was still impressed and have returned on many occasions. My most recent visit, with two Swedish friends, at the end of August 2012, confirmed that, unlike so many other establishments, nothing has changed. Food, service and atmosphere remained consistently good. It isn't cheap, but then Sweden isn't a cheap country!
