Fodor's Review

Vegetarians beware. At "The Animal," a cozy bistro on one of Gamla Stan's cobbled stone streets, you can dine on innovative two-week rotating meat-centric menus. One type of organic meat is chosen every two weeks, and a brand-new sustainable menu is designed around every edible part of the animal. For example, if fallow deer is on the menu, dishes might include venison fillet served with braised root vegetables, sautéed spinach, and crispy bacon, or deer shanks and sausages flavored with foie gras and Port wine and served with shallots, pickled celery, and potatoes. Its sister grill-house, Svinet ("The Pig"), is open in summer. The main restaurant has only a prix-fixe menu (four or six courses), and prices vary by the meat served; courses can be purchased à la carte at the bar. Be sure to check the website before making a reservation to make sure you like the meat being served that week.
