Stockholm has a lot of culinary hotspots. One that was on my list for a while was Oaxen Krog & Slip on Djurgården. I previously stayed at the Prince van Orangiën, belonging to the same group and across the water of the restaurant.
Oaxen Krog & Slip has been listed as one of Stockholm’s best restaurants for a few years already. You can have a quick lunch or an extensive dinner. For dinner it is advisable to make reservations. The restaurant is often fully booked long in advance. If you would like to be sure, you can also book for lunch.
A praline of 5 euro
Oaxen Krog & Slip serves a limited menu. For lunch there is a weekly changing menu. The serving dishes were just put on the table and you could serve yourself. The portions were spacious and we both liked it a lot.
Make sure you leave some place for dessert. One of the desserts on the map is the Oaxen praline. Don’t get scared by the price tag. You pay about 5 euros for the praline. As Belgians we were surprised because there is no special stuff at all in it. It’s just a nice piece of chocolate.
Despite the price of this praline, lunch at Oaxen Krog & Slip is quite affordable. The water is served for free and the service is impeccable. You get healthy, fair and tasty dishes and it’s a very beautiful setting with a view over the water.
