Proof of this are the Michelin stars distributed among the finest restaurants in the city. Stockholm brings together most of the 37 Swedish restaurants that have been awarded with the prestigious star in the latest edition of the Michelin Guide, including three double stars.

With a bucolic Couch, the Ulla Windbladh, is located at a small house in the heart of the great gardens of Djurgården island.
