The guide to Stockholm's best Lebanese restaurants
Updated 7 Jun 2018
Geographically, Lebanon is a very small country, but on the gastronomic map it's huge. Here in Stockholm Lebanese cuisine isn't just popular for its delicous small dishes - meze - but also for its main courses of everything from lamb to vegetarian food. Take a seat among the extravagant decor and feast on hummus, falafel, stuffed vine leafes, grilled meats, kebabs and other delicacies - this guide leads the way to the best Lebanese restaurants in Stockholm.
Lebanese in elegant surroundings
Take a culinary trip to the Middle East with flavourful experiences in elegant surroundings. With a menu that focuses on meze dishes the idea is to share your meal with the whole table. The wines are Lebanese and are carefully chosen to complement the food.

The city's most hyped meze spot?
Beirut Café may just be the most hyped Lebanese restaurant in Stockholm. Sit surrounded by One Thousand and One Nights-inspired decor and choose from a menu including everything from classic meze to grilled fillet of beef - there's something for everyone here. They also serve some slightly more unusual dishes, such as sheep's testicles - tastier than they sound.

Well-known Stockholm Lebanese
Tabbouli is Stockholm's own little Lebanese empire, with three restaurants that are authentically Lebanese through and through - from the decor and setting to the menu and concept. Tabbouli suits a broad crowd; it's great for families, but also loved-up couples or groups of friends.
Warmly Oriental by Norr Mälarstrand
The neighbourhood restaurant Café Corniche provides a dreamy little corner of Lebanon right on Norr Mälarstrand, decorated in warm tones and with beautiful Oriental patterns. The emphasis is on ingredients and all the small details. Nothing is overlooked, either on the plate or in the restaurant design.
Norr Mälarstrand 76, Kungsholmen
Promising newcomer since 2018
Kungsholmen saw a new, Lebanese addition to its restaurant scene in the spring of 2018. The menu at Restaurang Almaza focuses on typical meze dishes, made from seasonal ingredients. Interiors have obvious Middle Eastern influences and the small space creates an intimate, personal atmosphere.

Smoking-hot and delicious at a smart address
This really ought to Stockholm's most lavish Lebanese restaurant, with smoking-hot decor and a luxurious address right by Norrmalmstorg. Could it be a dead heat with Beirut Café? Either way, Lebanese food is the order of the day. Well-cooked, delicious Lebanese food.

Popular neighbourhood restaurant feel
Libanesen used to be found on Jakobsgatan but these days has a home on Högalidsgatan in Hornstull. The restaurant has a homey feel and despite being so popular and busy, it retains its neighbourhood restaurant feel. It's also the only Lebanese in town that serves authentic Lebanese home-cooking.
