Oaxen Slip

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.

Rosendal’s Garden

FARM TO FORK IN DJURGÅRDEN

When we want to get away from the city stress without actually going too far away, we head out to Rosendals Trädgård for a more relaxing—and less hectic—atmosphere.

We both live and work in the city, and now and then we feel the need to recharge. Rosendal’s Garden is an oasis located on the beautiful Djurgården island, and the easiest way to get there is catching the tram from Kungsträdgården or the ferry from Slussen. You could either bring your own picnic basket and roll out a big blanket in the orchard, or get something freshly made from café’s artisanal bakery. Everything is made from organic and biodynamic ingredients that most likely was harvested in their own garden.  They also have a farm shop and a plant shop if you’re looking to bring a bit of green to your home.

Since 1982, the Rosendal Garden Foundation runs the garden with the purpose to widen the public interest and knowledge of biodynamic gardening and landscaping. They hold courses and other activities in cooking and gardening, as well as harvest markets, guided tours, seminars, and art exhibitions.

Rosendal’s Garden is a driver of the farm to fork concept and the harvest of vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruits are used in the garden café and wood fired bakery.Rosendals Trädgård
