This restaurant is definitely on my top regarding restaurants in Stockholm. Gorgeous culinary excursion I ´d call it more than food! Tasting menu is amazing and the restaurant is well located in the Grand Hotel. Service is excellent just as everything else!

If having both time and money, this is something I recommend you experience. With the ambition to taste Mathias' cooking every year, we have followed him from Bon Lloc to Matsalen ("the dining hall") at Grand hotel in Stockholm. The set menu officially consists of five dishes,addded by a handful of amuse bouches, varying from smoked roe, to scallop with... More

If you enjoy good food and good cooking then Matbordet is well worth trying. Having been there now for the third time, it is always an experience. Great food and especially being able to discuss with the chef, picking up the smells and some new ideas is great, as well as being able to have a nice discussion with your... More

Blown away!!! Perfect!!! Everything here is great. The service is impeccable. The food is out of this world. Very expensive but worth it. There is a fixed menu.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and good food and wine selection. We had the tasting menu and the suggested wine package to accompany the food. Overall the food was good and tasty. However the service was inconsistent. The dishes are served to both parties at the same time. However several times, the person who we belived/assumed was the head... More

Excellent small plate concept. The food was innovative and very well prepared. We were able to order as much as we wanted and did not leave feeling over-stuffed or unable to remember what we ate. The restaurant is tucked away in the Grand Hotel and well worth the time to find it since the street sign is so unobtrusive.

On August 14, 2014, I celebrated my wife Anna and 10-year wedding anniversary with a visit Mathias Dahlgren's masterpiece. What a tremendous dining experience we had and it was a memory of a lifetime for us. Food and related beverages are world class and I would recommend anyone who has the opportunity to visit this amazing restaurant. It's not every... More

This is a very interesting and different restaurant in that it is very fine food in a very casual setting. There are people seated around a bar other on high chairs and others on regular tables. No table cloths but rather nice little wooden plate places. We went for the three courses rather than the tasting menu, so no tour... More

Matsalen is a modern gastronomic restaurant. Our cuisine is based on using the best fresh produce available here and now in Sweden and other parts of the world, spiced with curiosity and inspiration from everything we encounter.

"The natural cuisine" is a menu that changes with nature and the seasons. We pair wine, beer and other beverages with each of the dishes we create.

All the producers we work with are meticulously selected, they produce something we like. Our menu and drink offering - like the fresh produce - are living and change with the time of the year.
