Best Stockholm Restaurants in the White Guide 2018

While the Michelin Guide is very popular with travellers visiting a foreign city and searching for the best restaurants, the White Guide is another good tool for finding great restaurants in Sweden. In some ways it is even better than the Michelin Guide as it is Swedish critics that rate the restaurants in the White Guide (local knowledge in other words) and they test hundreds of restaurants throughout the country and region. You also get restaurants rated/awarded in several categories, including several that concentrate on environmental sustainability which is fantastic. The trouble is that the White Guide is published in Swedish which makes it a little difficult for non Swedish speaking visitors to access the information... but here is a break down of the Stockholm restaurants that nabbed the top awards and made the lists in this year's guide:

  • Best restaurant in the category gastronomy  (Årets Bästa Mästarklass - Gastronomi): Frantzén
  • Best service experience (Årets Bästa Serviceupplevelse): Frantzén
  • Newcomer of the year (Årets Stjärnskott): Ichi
  • Best restaurant, with emphasis on sustainability (Årets Hållbara Gastronomi): Volt (2nd year in a row)
  • Seafood restaurant of the year, with emphasis on sustainability (Årets Merroir Award): Unn and Tak.
  • Pioneer of the year (Årets Banbrytare): Rutabaga
Best service and Best restaurant: Frantzén
