This is an excellent restaurant with a creative chef. Don't be put off by the external appearance (which is a little drab) the interior is lovely. Every dish delivered to ourselves and the tables around looked mouthwatering and fresh. The portions are large but still, otherwise it is very much fine dining.

come for an early dinner without reservation, and taken the last unreserved table. Order was taken promptly. Scallops, salad, and swedish meatballs, with glass of withe and red wine. All tasty and good quality food. Service was friendly. The only drawback was a cold draft from the door anytime someone was coming in.

Cod and meatballs had been of outstanding Quality and very tasty, however with the cod some boiled Potatoes as a side dish would have been nice as the size of the portions is rather small. As there is no curtain between door and tables there was a cold wind whenever someone entered or left the restaurant. This effect was most... More

Our hotel recommended Bisto Bistick for an early evening meal before our flight home. It is small restaurant, centrally located with nice decor and atmosphere which provides good quality food with friendly, helpful service. We all had either the meat balls or cod loin and both were excellent. Overall, it is good quality, simple cooking - nothing too clever or... More

I have been eating lunch here approximately ten times during a period of a little more than a year. Mostly I have chosen the soup of the day but all dishes look good. Everything is genuinely home-made. The restaurant i REALLY small, so you are recommended to book a table i advance.

Bistro with a clear Scandinavian touch. Menu in both English and Swedish. Make sure to order a table as it is very popular and seating is limited. Food was tasty and well presented. Kitchen is strong on umami. I recommend the mushroom carpaccio. Servings are generous. There is a set menu but à la carte is more interesting, and the... More

This is a very cozy place with few more than 10 tables with good wines and very good plates. From Swedish to international food. And with special deserts!

We had a very good meal at Bistro Bestick - we chose the traditional meatballs and the marinated Salmon - paired with some excellent red wine. Excellent service with very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Very memorable dinner. Recommend!

Had a fantastic early dinner at Bistro Bestick. They managed to fit us in at 6pm on a Saturday evening at very short notice; had some great wines to choose from and the highly attentive waiters were very helpful with recommendations. Food was first rate - pictures attached.
