Vegetarian & vegan friendly | the conscious green fine dining cuisine
The restaurant at the Museum of Photography has won several awards through the years for delivering sustainable food. This is green fine dining at its best with innovative ingredients and flavours.
The restaurant focuses on vegetarian medium sized dishes where 4 dishes are recommended to order by each guest (1 cold, 2 warm and 1 dessert). Animal protein can thereafter be ordered more as a side rather than the main component on the plate. If you are a vegan most of the dishes can be served plant based. The food is seasonal and ecological and whats unique most of all is the “zero waste” philosophy.
The dishes we got exited about was the Rosen quince, apple & false foe gras made of an innovative soft paté of red lentils which balanced perfectly with the home made mustard and rosen quince gelé. We also loved Yellow onion filled with mushroom, Jerusalem artichoke & tryffel. The truffle created such an umami sensation and the dish combed crispiness & creaminess in a harmonic way.
The dishes were however too small, this were no “medium sized dishes”. If we hadn’t ordered a couple of basket of breads we would have left the restaurant hungry.

Modern interior with a great view of Stockholm’s sea side. Organic materials with industrial touches. The open kitchen shows the passionate chefs in their work and gives an open feeling to the atmosphere. Since the restaurant is part of the museum the walls are also filled with modern cool art with great lightening
Our waitress was vey service minded and keen on making us feel comfortable. She alos went the extra mile to get one of us a dessert that had ran out officially. The dishes, however, came out bit too slow which made us very hungry in between every serving- and the restaurant was half empty.
