Oljebaren, so-named as the chef is passionate about olive oil, has been famous for its celebrated hamburgers for some time but these days the emphasis is on sustainable, creative dishes in which vegetables take centre stage. If you're in the mood for a cocktail, you'll also find what you're looking for here.
This longstanding Vasastan bistro on Sankt Eriksplan is a well-loved watering hole that attracts a lively mix of locals, friends, family and cocktail-thirsty after-workers. Chequered floors, rustic wooden tables, bistro chairs, green plants and exposed brick walls create a snug, stylish atmosphere.
Over the years, the restaurant's culinary focus has changed and they've been associated primarily with their extremely popular burger. These days, the menu consists mainly of different dishes with unique flavours. Large parties can book a communal family-style dinner where all dishes are served on sharing platters. The ethos of their cooking is sustainability and their aim is zero food waste. They use organic, locally-produced ingredients wherever possible, with meat from higher welfare sources. All their meat comes from selected Swedish farms.
You can drop by Oljebaren to have something good to eat, but also to round off the day with something to drink at the bar in the middle of the room. There's a range of wines on the drinks menu, all available by the glass, microbrewed beers and cocktails made from spirits flavoured in-house and topped with a garnish from the flavouring. Combine with some bar snacks if you're peckish.
