An archipelago restaurant in Stockholm
In a fantastic complex right on the waterfront of Djurgården, with huge windows and boats hanging from the ceiling, you’ll find an amazing restaurant called Oaxen Slip. Trust us when we say that you won’t leave disappointed. Or hungry.
Like any other couple, we get caught up in the daily life. We get home from work all exhausted just to make dinner, go to bed and wake up just to do it all over the next day. It’s hard to notice the small things. So we started going on date nights. Once a month, one of us plans an activity, big or small. This month, it was Amanda’s turn.
Without telling me (Fabian) where we were going, we went for a walk down to Gamla Stan and jumped on a ferry towards Djurgården and Gröna Lund. A few minutes later, we were sitting by the large windows at Bistro Oaxen Slip. Rowing boats are hanging from the ceiling and the walls are filled with other marine detail to provide the venue with a rural archipelago style that feels genuine yet luxurious.
Oaxen Krog opened in 1994 in Stockholm’s southern archipelago but moved to the city and Djurgården in 2013. With two Michelin stars, it attracts connoisseurs from all over the world. We’re not that fancy, so their sister restaurant Oaxen Slip will do just fine. They serve their own interpretation of Swedish bistro food, with hearty and uncomplicated dishes to be shared with the people at your table. The food is cooked with care and is absolutely delicious. The service is unpretentious, and you’ll dine in a nice setting at a fair price. We fell in love with this place—and each other even more. Nawww!
Book a table!
If you’re a foodie and want to experience this, which we really think you should do, you should book a table. There is also a few seats at the bar for drop-ins.
