This is a very cozy place with few more than 10 tables with good wines and very good plates. From Swedish to international food. And with special deserts!

We had a very good meal at Bistro Bestick - we chose the traditional meatballs and the marinated Salmon - paired with some excellent red wine. Excellent service with very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Very memorable dinner. Recommend!

Was here last night and we really enjoyed the good quality food. Especially the salmon starter was amazing, and the tender meat (beef And venison) we had as main. Highly recommended.

The place was full and lucky to get a seat but it seems to be normal. The owner had a big character and made it feel very homely, in a rural sort of way. I was sat on a sofa for a few minutes until a table became free. The lunch was kind of Swedish, I deliberately chose the daily... More

I had a reservation and I'm glad I did, because the restaurant quickly filled up after we arrived. We enjoyed the three course menu and thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. The restaurant was Cody and intimate, and conveniently located in the center of Stockholm. And the complimentary bread was so delicious, I almost asked for more!

A fair warning: the place is small and popular, don't expect to get a table when you just walk in. I got my reservation, therefore no problem. The place has somewhat intimate feel and can accomodate even groups of 8 people at the round tables, which I found really cool. The cuisine is scandinavian mosty, I had a wonderful arctic... More

Visited on a Friday evening having seen the great reviews, but when we arrived the 2 members of staff were preoccupied with the till and couldn't even be bothered to make eye contact with us. We stood for five minutes and then left. Other people obviously had more luck.

I had dinner here a week ago -and found it to be a lovely environment and excellent food. I came early and my dinner companion was an hour late, but I never felt pressured or awkward, although the restaurant filled up pretty quick - even though I didn't have a reservation. The service was great and the location close to... More

The place is small but cozy, service is slow but very friendly, we ask for a local pork and beef and both were very good. its expensive as in all nice restaurants in Stockholm. The appetisers of salmon mayo and apple are delicious.
