Description: Matsalen is a modern gastronomic restaurant. Our cuisine is based on using the best fresh produce available here and now in Sweden and other parts of the world, spiced with curiosity and inspiration from everything we encounter. "The natural cuisine" is a menu that changes with nature and the seasons. We pair wine, beer and other beverages with each of the dishes we create. All the producers we work with are meticulously selected, they produce something we like. Our menu and drink offering - like the fresh produce - are living and change with the time of the year.

Relaxed atmosphere, or at least it tries to be. It was almost entirely businessmen when we were there. Waiters in jeans and aprons provided fine service.
The concept - which is a good one I thought - is just to order small plates, rather than courses. Good king crab, but the scallops and truffel lacked taste. Lamb's heart ok, duck breast pleasant enough.
At the end of the day, the food lacked a wow factor. I regret not going to the proper restaurant part.

This restaurant has an interesting concept of serving. Dishes are seasonal according to ingredients available. They are basically divided between dishes with Swedish ingredients and those from elsewhere. Dishes are individual portions and you order them one at the time (they come very fast, but are carefully prepared. We had Swedish deer and squid; and scallop tartar. In average, you will be satisfied with 2 to 4 dishes. Service is very good and waiters know how to harmonize each dish with wines available. A very good surprise!
