This is the first choice for a sunny day—a waterside café with a floating bar. It can be paradise in the Swedish summer, when you can sit with a bottle of rosé and watch the tour boats chug by on their way to the royal palace at Drottingholm. Daytime brings a cross-section of locals, but the later it gets, the gayer it gets.
This is one of the coolest places in town to grab a drink or some food, which is both good and bad. The good is that when the beautiful people of Stockholm assemble, it is quite a sight. On the other hand, service is wildly uneven. The room is attractive, and the outdoor seating in the summer months offers Grade A people-watching. Come for a drink before dinner elsewhere.
The setting, overlooking the harbor, affords views of ferries coming and going to the archipelago and families out for a stroll in the lingering twilight. The décor is modern Swedish, with a soft color palette, airy atmosphere and fish sculptures on the walls. On the menu: impeccably fresh oysters, herring, grilled salmon, poached sole. For a summer dessert, the warm cloudberries with vanilla ice cream is a must. Lunch is served on weekdays.
