We'd heard about the place and was able to get reservations. It's laid back, with really good creatively made food (mostly small plates). Service is good. We were just visiting town, but would come back if we lived here!

We had the Chef’s Menu and it was amazing. The staff were excellent and couldn’t do enough for us. Highly recommended and we’ll definitely come again when back in Malmö.

Bustling and buzzing with lots of happy patrons. Food was small but several portions were good. Wine selection was satisfactory. Staff were excellent. In the Swedish tradition of good food being expensive make sure you go with lots of credit on your credit card.

Did you mention the restaurant's name in your review? Because I tried that, and the name is viewed as a curse word. So when I removed the name my review was approved 😊

The modern European home cooking is the starting point of the cuisine. The preference for local produce from small producers preferably varies Bastard menu daily based on supply and demand. Dishes such as walleye with rösti, tartine with pig side and ragout of hare exemplify Bastard?s varied menu.
