Without a doubt, this is one of the most creative restaurants in town. The showpiece is the 11-course tasting menu, with ingredients selected according to a farmers almanac from 1666. The result is dishes such as "The Swell of the Sea" (langoustine on rice bread with dill and ginger) and "The Cooling Shade" (duck liver with white-peach lemonade and toasted seeds). The elegant, neutral-toned dining room oozes class and style; the refreshingly friendly, impressively knowledgable
staff add a pleasant down-to-earth touch to the sky-high prices. This is haute cuisine at its very best—but note that there is a huge difference between lunch and dinner prices: the latter starts around SKr 895.

This was one of the best meals we had on our 3 week trip through Scandinavia and Germany. The food is imaginative and well prepared and the decor and service outstanding. It is a bit expensive but worth it.

If you are looking for an eclectic menu that is definitely different from the general Swedish restaurant scene, Fredsgatan 12 is a must! My suggestion is to go with the special dinner but forget the wine - try the cocktails. The presentation of the food, the unique combination of tastes, and the excellent service created a wonderful Valentine's Day experience. Fredsgatan 12 ranks as one of my all time favorites in Sweden. The restaurant is quite popular
so make sure that you have reservations. The tables next to the windows are close together so if you prefer a little more intimacy, make sure that you request a corner table or a table in the interior of the restaurant. There is also private dining available in the wine cellar. The cocktails and food are always served with an interesting twist - an unexpected taste delight.
