We booked previously after having read TA's reviews, we were not disappointed. Ample sized portions of excellently cooked fish with interesting veg/sides. Numerous people were turned away during the two hours we were there, you do need to book.

It is so easy to just walk right by Bistro Bestick, but don't do it. Make it a point to enjoy the great food at this wonderful little restaurant.

Great dinner. Been there now a few times with colleagues and business partners. Service is always spot on. Food is devine. Small but appropriate wine list. Great value for money.

Very tasty and lovely arranged food. We had spiced flank steak and lamb topside followed by the blueberry dessert. Very friendly and competent service. If I HAD to criticize anything, it would be that the red wine was a bit cold.

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
