Together with a wide choice of quality wines and Swedish craft beers. Portal is run by former Chef of the Year Klas Lindberg, who often appears in
the dining room himself.

Le Rouge For several hundred years the canteens of Le Rouge have been involved in gastronomy. Already in medieval times, these quarters were Stockholm’s busiest trading place for fish. During the 1700´s, the “Potato King” Jonas Alströmer, stored his potato treasures here and in the 1800´s the house was the most fun wine tavern imaginable.
Today, these premises have been turned into a restaurant and bar with a cinematic atmosphere. Imagine playful Moulin Rouge, with a menu emphasizing salmon, entrecote and vegetables. We understand that we have a great historical legacy to continue, but we feel we have an even greater responsibility to never cease to surprise you.

Österlånggatan 17 As new tavern owners here in the Old Town, we were delighted to discover that a gentleman named Hindrich Nywardt lived here in the 1700´s. Who? Well, an old chap who had the responsibility for organising the wine carriage transportation in Stockholm. Quite simply, he was a decent fellow who provided the citizens with a steady supply of good wine.
This is just exactly what Österlånggatan 17 is today – to be kind to all citizens and offer a great atmosphere, food and drinks. Our food is influenced from all over the world, but with a lot of inspiration and respect to our local producers. Welcome to Österlångatan 17, brothers and sisters! Here it should be easy to intoxicate yourself with the good life.
