Arstiderna i Kockska Huset | Malmo | Sweeden

My boyfriend and I were in Malmo last weekend as a little city get away. It was a lovely little break in such a beautiful city (Check out my Instagram photos and see for yourself). 

Malmo Park
On our final night we decided to head out to a nice restaurant in the town. The lonely planet guide that we had, suggested Arstiderna i Kockska Huset. In the guide the restaurant is described as a €€€ Swedish restaurant that serves meals in the vaults beneath Kockska Huset, food is upscale Swedish and the atmosphere is classic with crisp white tablecloths and quietly professional service. So out we went.

We wanted an early dinner (so we could watch the football YAY!! *not*) and decided to attempt to get a table without booking. When walking up to the restaurant it is not obvious at first that it is an eatery, but once you venture down the stairs it opens up into the vaults, it looks like an old wine cellar with curved ceiling and arches. A very friendly man helped us and took us to our table with was nice, not too close to any others and beautifully laid. We were given menus and left to make a decision. After ordering drinks we were ready to order mains. There was a nice choice on the menu, not too much but a nice selection with Swedish specialties as well as more standard meals. Jack went for the veal and I decided to try the reindeer. While waiting for the meals we were given some warm bread and then a nice little appetizers, which was a nice little touch. 

The delicious appitizers
The mains did not take long to come, there were not many others in the restaurant though. The food was presented beautifully and the waitress took the time to tell us about the food that we had. Both meals were delicious and we would both recommend what we had.

The Reindeer Meal 
Once mains were cleared we decided to have some puddings, as I have a super big sweet tooth. Again the selection was great and I was torn between the crème brule and the soufflé. I ended up going for the Strawberry soufflé, while jack had some truffles. Again both were delicious and bursting with flavours.

The Strawberry Souffle
The staff were very friendly, they did speak to us in Swedish to start (perhaps we looked like locals), however when we apologised and said we didn’t understand they all were very happy to speak English which they were all great at (and we appreciated immensely!). In terms of costs this was not a cheap place to eat, but we knew that before going, with the price of the meal rounding to about 1000 SKR (£85).

Overall this was a lovely evening out with delicious food in a great establishment. I would highly recommend to go to Arstiderna i Kockska Huset if you are in Malmo and are looking for a nice place to eat. Here are a couple of photos from the evening:
