First Review by Sanna

average experience, not worth the effort - Edit

We chose this so-called restaurant as we are vegans and were curious about this vegan venue. Vaxthuset is very hard to find, it's like a maze and the entrance is a poor and dirty gate you would never ever enter (but you have to). Then after hundred meters in a no man's land maze, you finally arrive at the restaurant (yes, it's very well hidden in the back, poorly marked). So, 0/5 for location. The venue itself is very poor, with some improvisations to look nice. Initially we received a simple empty table in a corner, without table cloth (when all the others had) and when we asked why, they were totally surprised why we asked. After some discussions they finally accepted to switch our table with another one with table cloth, salt/pepper and candle (the initial table didn't have these elements, for the same money, it was a simple bare wood table). Also, not so many cloth hangers. So 3/5 for the hall. The menu is exclusively in swedish, but very creative (5/5 for creativity). Dishes very small and expensive, so even after all 3 courses we left a little hungry (2/5 for dish size). The taste is not so impressive, despite the creativity, the end result is rather disappointing (3/5 for taste) and the prices are quite high for what you get. The personnel is very friendly and managed to save a little of the overall impression. At the exit you have to cross again the junkyard and dirty poor looking yard and landscape until you are back on the street and after a few hundred meters, back in the civilization. In the end I could say it was an OK experience, but I would NOT go there again! Initially I wanted to rate it 2/5 but would be unfair for the cook and the personnel. The overall experience is not worth more than 3/5. And I would not recommend, as for the same money and effort you can find nicer well situated real restaurants in the city (without crossing a muddy junkyard in the middle of nowhere).

Good - Edit

This was my first fancy fine-dining experience. The food was good and nicely presented. As expected it was very pricey and small portions.

Cosy place and friendly staff.

NOTE: This is a plant-based restaurant and not a vegan one. I asked the waitress about the alcohol and she told me that she didn't know if the alcohol is vegan or not. Just fyi

Pros: Good food

Cons: Plant-based

Masterclass - Edit

Vaxthuset is a must visit when in Stockholm and I would go as far to say it is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at, it's that good. Located inside a nightclub you must have ID to enter due to the licensing laws but once you are in, the atmosphere is vibrant. We decided to order the large set menu for 545kr, which although expensive is well worth it, as the food we got was visually stunning, innovative and delicious. To begin this masterclass we were first given some scrumptious bread and hummus dip, quickly followed by crudités with wild garlic puree and cucumber, horseradish, deep-fried seaweed and buckwheat. All starters were excellent and each dish we were served during the night was explained in detail by the fantastic staff. However, the best was yet to come. Next, we were served the deep-fried fennel, salsa of heritage tomatoes with pear and peas and Stockholmstempeh, potatoes, rye, currents with onion foam and garlic mustard, which were absolutely stunning both in taste and presentation. By far the best tempeh I have ever had and our favourite dish of the night. For dessert we had the raspberry sorbet, rhubarb, buckwheat and chervil but also ordered the chocolate cake, seasonal berries with Spanish chervil from the À la carte menu. Both desserts were magnificent and a perfect way to end to a wonderful evening.

Pros: Vegan fine dining, Excellent staff, Atmosphere

Cons: Must have ID to enter premises, Expensive (but well worth it)

Fine dining, sketchy area - Edit

It’s not cheap, and it might not be to place to go if you´re hungry, but it is a great and highly needed addition to the Stockholm restaurant flora.

We had a set menu, the small one (315 SEK). Good service, great-tasting and lovely looking dishes.

Directions. Beneath the skanstull-bridge. Entrance from southeast side of the building and when inside, turn right.

Cons: You need to be a detective to find the entrance.

Lovely food, slightly pretentious staff. - Edit

We couldn't have the tasting menu because I think we booked a table too late (8pm).

The food is like tapas- you choose about 5 plates between 2 people

It wasn't the cheapest but the food was delicious!!!

It was also in a slightly odd area; hard to find and seemed to be through a night club when we left, it was still quite early so just seemed like a fake smoke filled empty room with a DJ playing on headphones and security staff on the door as we left :/

Odd area but really tasty food and an excuse to dress up a bit!

Lovely espresso martini and the pavlova was delicious!!!

Finally a fine dining vegan in Stockholm! - Edit

This is what I've been missing in Stockholm - a high end all vegan restaurant that serves a wide variety of flavorful and innovative dishes. Loved it, and highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for a nice high class restaurant for special occasions etc.
Be prepared to spend some money - but also be prepared to get good value out of that money!
