Food and ambience

Location and contact

Bistro Magasinet is located on the third floor of our building and on the second floor we have a big roof terrace with an amazing view over Waxholm old fortress. It's the prefect place to enjoy a glass go wine and a delicious meal. Here you can sit back, relax and watch the time fly by in a lovely inspiring environment. We cook with environmentally conscious minds and every day we offer lovely pastries, to satisfy both your soul and stomach.

Lots of flavour. Nice and thick with plenty of croutons. Included salad and cake. Washed down with elderflower cider. What’s not to like.

On a tour to Vaxholm with my family, we’ve stopped here for lunch: toast skagen, nice salads, and a gorgeous selection of desserts. The hall has wide windows and large tables where you sit with others informally (15 Apr 2018).

Hi! We are sorry to hear that you were dissapointed at your last visit. I remember our meeting, you complained about the temperature of the wine before you tasted it which I found interesting. During weekdays on low season we don't serve the a la...More
