2) Oaxen Slip

Like the younger, more laidback cousin of the Michelin-starred restaurant Oaxen Krog, Oaxen Slip offers a more easy-going atmosphere and tasty, uncomplicated Swedish dishes. Discover the flavours of herring, chanterelles and cloudberries, which are served on iconic retro tableware while enjoying lovely views of Beckholmen island through the large windows.

4) Piren

With expansive views of Ulvsundasjön, Piren has become the hotspot in Kungsholmen's newly-built neighbourhood of Hornsberg. They serve a modern menu with a classic twist and a fantastic sea view year-round. This is one of the best restaurants in Stockholm to catch the sunset.

5) Milles

Despite its upmarket address, the ambience at Michelle van der Milles, also known as Milles, is rather unpretentious and laidback. The interior is a mix of pastel walls, leather, marble and contemporary art and the outdoor terrace is extremely popular. The best place for a front-row view of the glamourous passers-by and the boat traffic around the archipelago.
