In a striking waterfront location on the shores of Stockholm’s greenest city island, Djurgården, Oaxen is a nautical-themed Nordic bistro set inside a stunningly-restored bright yellow shipyard. The light-flooded venue is split into two parts: Oaxen Krog is a fine-dining restaurant that’s picked up two Michelin stars, thanks to delicately presented seasonal tasting menus garnished with wild herbs from the surrounding woodland. Oaxen Slip is a slightly more casual brasserie with a penchant for sharing plates and a reputation for one of the best Sunday roasts in the city. Run by renowned Swedish restaurateur and chef Magnus Ek, both sections take their name from the island in the archipelago where the restaurant started out in 1994. Since relocating to a more central location five years ago, Oaxen has become a firm favourite amongst the city’s foodies and has also won several awards for its lengthy wine list.
Time Out tip: If you can’t justify Oaxen Krog’s tasting menu but want the experience of a lingering meal in this stunner of a location, go for the three course lunch menu at Oaxen Slip, giving you the option of a prolonged coffee after most diners have gone back to work.
