2 stars ("excellent cooking, worth a detour")
1 star ("a very good restaurant in its category")
Besides the star system, the Michelin Guide has another category called Bib Gourmand which is "exceptional good food and moderate prices". In other words, it won't empty your wallet. Here are Stockholm's Bib Gourmand restaurants:
- Brasserie Bobonne
- Den Gyldene Freden
- Lilla Ego
- Oaxen Slip
- Rolf's Kök
- Ulla Winbladh
Please keep in mind that the Michelin star restaurants need to be booked a few weeks in advance and often guaranteed with a credit card. If I had a dollar for every guest who has come to me on a Friday late afternoon and asked me for help in booking a table at a star restaurant for the same evening (only to be disappointed), I would be a rich man! If you are staying at the Rival Hotel, please contact me ahead of your visit for any assistance in booking a table. Of course, the Michelin guide isn't the end-all of restaurants guides and recommendations. There are plenty of other great restaurants in the city as well as other excellent guides.
