Restaurant Natur in Gothenburg

We are constantly looking for natural wine bars in Paris (our masochistic streak?). But you can find them in other places as well. For example in Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast. Several restaurants and bars there now have natural wines on the wine list. One of the best is Natur on the Geijer Street. […]

Brasserie Makalös in Stockholm | restaurant review

If you want French atmosphere in Stockholm, go to Brasserie Makalös, a stone’s throw from Kungsträdgården in the city centre. Here the waiters speaks Swedish with a French accent (you can speak French with them if you prefer) and the menu includes French classics like boeuf bourguignon, onion soup, grilled entrecote, snails with garlic butter, […]

A new Barrique Restaurant in Gothenburg

We have enjoyed Barrique Restaurant & Wine Bar at their different locations in Gothenburg. Recently a new Barrique Restaurant opened on Berzelii street. We had dinner there just a few weeks after the opening and we were not disappointed. Not this time either. We have never been disappointed with Barrique. The concept here at Berzeliigatan […]

GQ wine bar and restaurant, Stockholm

Restaurang GQ, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Jürgen Grossmann is a bit of an eminence gris on the Stockholm restaurant scene. Or perhaps not so grey, he actually has quite a reputation. Today he runs GQ. We first encountered his cooking talents at Gässlingen, small restaurant on Söder in Stockholm. That was many years ago. Now he runs a much more sophisticated […]

Duvel Café, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Don’t be fooled by the name. It’s not a beer hall. The decoration refers back to classic French bistro style with naked wooden tables, wooden floors and linen napkins – but with a modern design flavours (Swedish restaurant somehow must absolutely be ‘designed’). Very centrally located, a short walk (5 minutes) from the central train […]

Hos Pelle, Gothenburg | BKWine Pick

Pelle is the name of the chef and ”hos” in Swedish is the same as the French ”chez”, so you’re at Pelle’s Place. The restaurant is very small, elegant and modern design and happily free from loud music. A modest walk away from the centre of the city – stroll through the old Haga part […]

Restaurant Lagmark, Helsingborg | BKWine Pick

A popular watering hole in the coastal town of Helsingborg, open for lunch and dinner, or for just a glass of wine. The popular tapas, called ‘gourmetas’, are world famous in Helsingborg – two or three makes a nice lunch, for example in classic Swedish style with marinated herring and egg, “skagenröra” (with a creamy […]

Magnus & Magnus, Gothenburg | BKWine Pick

A cosy restaurant, friendly and competent service and exceptional food – that makes Magnus & Magnus to one of the stars on the Gothenburg restaurant scene. You could for example try some of the innovative tapas as a starter – the tuna is wonderfully lightly grilled (or “seared” is it’s supposed to be said), the […]

More restaurants and wine bars in Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Eriks Bakficka (Erik’s Back Pocket) Erik’s Back Pocket is not exactly next door to Eriks Gondolen so he must have big trousers. The Bakficka is close to the Narvavagen street in fashionable Ostermalm. Classic Swedish food (“husmanskost”) mixed with more unusual cooking (for example delicious gnocci). A decent wine list (but far from outstanding). Very […]

Eriks Vinbar, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Eriks Vinbar (wine bar in Swedish) is at ground level in the same building as the luxury restaurant Eriks Gondolen (from which you have a view over all of Stockholm), close to Slussen. It is a small and cosy place, really a bar and not a restaurant even if you can have some small things […]

Beluga Restaurant, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

The name speaks partially true but don’t let yourself be deterred. They do serve caviar but they also serve real food. Both the menu and the wine list is restricted to a small number of well chosen references. What is particularly interesting is that for each dish they have a suggested wine – and all […]

Terreno Wine Bar, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Perhaps the most important reason to visit this wine bar is to see how it functions. It built around an original self-service concept: First you have to buy a “wine card”, like a pre-paid phone card. then you go to the “dispensing machine”, insert your card, push the button for the wine you want (don’t […]

Il Fantozzi, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

I can’t claim to be an expert on Italian restaurants in Stockholm but this one must be high up on the list of the top ones. But first you have to find it: it is on a small, obscure street but not far from Skanstull, the metro station. In the husband and wife team he […]

Ulriksdals Wärdshus, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

One of Stockholm’s old classics! Classic food, classic building, classic surroundings (in the park of a royal palace). Very well made, excellent cooking and beautiful surroundings. And also the wine selection is leaning to the classic with an emphasis on France even if there is a reasonable selection of wines from other countries too. And […]

Sturehof, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

This must be considered as one of the classics in Stockholm today. Fetching inspiration in classic Parisian brasserie they are open almost around the clock and you can get a meal at any hour. Very informal (and busy) atmosphere. Excellent kitchen with some rather exclusive things and a few more reasonably priced. Very good wine […]
