Sweden: Food and Drink

More than just flatpack furniture!

Given its size and population, Sweden has a good reputation with food and boasts numerous Michelin-starred restaurants across the country; the Grand Hotel’s restaurant in Stockholm, and Fond in Gothenburg being two of the many, but as you might expect, gourmet food doesn’t come cheap, with evening menus edging towards the €95 per head, mark. Dining in Sweden, on the whole, is often a good experience, with its native fare – heavy on the herring, meat, and potatoes – being available across the board. A three-course meal with wine costs approximately €29-€67 in a medium priced restaurant, but if you want cheaper options, lunchtimes are usually cheaper, as are fast-food outlets and pizzerias.
