Stroll down Strandvagan in Stockholm’s Ostermalm district, a little past the Royal Dramatic Theater, and you’ll find one of the more upscale bistros in the city.
Named for the linens which adorn its tables next to the china plates and crystal goblets and glasses, Bistro Linne offers an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere with views overlooking Nybroviken Bay from which to enjoy beautifully presented dishes of the highest quality.
Priding itself on being a classic bistro but with a modern Swedish twist, Bistro Linne specializes in creative dishes prepared from seasonal ingredients, along with their unique, signature lineup of cocktails and mixed drinks.
Open for lunch and dinner year-round with some irregular hours during certain seasons so call before you go, Bistro Linne offers a variety of meat- and seafood-based starters and main dishes with vegetarian options as well. Recently, they also began opening early on weekends so that patrons could once again enjoy their famous breakfasts of fresh baked pastries, fruit and breakfast bowls, delicious sandwiches, and a full meal menu for those with an appetite! Whichever meal and whatever options you choose, you can be sure that the high-quality dishes will be served to you as though they were works of art on the china – exquisite, beautiful, a treat for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
As you might expect, one of the most luxurious bistros in the city is also one of its most expensive. But for the great food, charming atmosphere, and friendly service, it might be worth exploring, even if just once.
