I never eat better, than here. Nice restaurant. You can't eat a la carte. Every month they have an other menu. Whitin the menu they use everything of one animal. Every month a other animal. The menu contans 6 course and for every course a other wine.

Upon others' recommendations, I visited Bakficken on the north side of the Opera House. I opted for the very classic Swedish meatballs meal and it was superb - everything that I expected based on recommendations. The price was also reasonable and the location convenient, so don't miss it.

In a calmer part of the old town and the hotel restaurant you find Djuret, with a menu focusing on delivering as much as possible from the animal. Tonight it was Oxe and the five course meal were all tasty and combined with recommended wine - excellent! We liked the fact that we get some privacy since the old building... More

The restaurant has a really interesting concept. The food is really good and the service was nice. It can seem expensive but is worthy and reasonable after you get to enjoy the food and the service.

Dinner at Djuret was a pleasant experience, as we ate delicious food in a warm and sleek environment. However there were a few flaws, which explain the mediocre rating, to be interpreted in terms of value for quality. First, the menu is fixed (we could choose between a baseline 5 course menu and an extended 7 course menu). Second, not... More

The concept here is simple, 2 set taster menus, one large, one smaller (but still 5 courses including amuse bouche) - both menus serving dishes that based on a single animal. I've been twice now, two different animals, both times excellent. The setting is like an old gentlemans club, with great attentive, but friendly, service, very recommended!

If you love meat, you should not miss out on this restaurant. It's a "no fuss" restaurant with a menu focusing on meat, more specifically set menus reflecting a specific animal (animal changes with a certain frequency). The food was well made and the service as well.

The set menu here was really good, and very well presented. The staff knew the menu well and was able to guide us to good choices, not just for food but for wine and aquavit after. My friend and I loved it! And hope to return soon.

When I went to Bakfickan, it was the evening of the Eurovision and they were packed. I had the fish (name starting with D, seem to forget now) and it was simple and fresh-exactly how a fish should be. My friend had the sausages and he enjoyed that too. We had this amazing chocolate dessert which is one thing I... More

Djuret is Leijontornets bistro. At Djuret we serve one animal at the time. We concider this to be the most sustainable way to work with the slaughtered animal both from an organic perspective but also out of respect to the animal in question. The whole menu consists of different meat paragraphs from the same animal. These are prepared with a lot of love on the grill, halster or in a pot and then served in a rustik way.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
