On the menu, you will find traditional Swedish home cooking such as meatballs and a selection of International cuisine all impeccably prepared in the true Swedish spirit and presented in a true gourmet style. Fish selections vary from marinated herring and dilled salmon for appetizers to a saffron laced turbot and a whitefish with Pernod sauce. And for the meat lovers such as my husband offered are the perfectly prepared tenderloin steak with artichoke and a rack of lamb flavored with bacon. Food not only impeccably prepared but also a celebration for the palate. Also has an impressive wine list.
Ulla Windbladh is both historic and exclusive frequented by even the most jaded of Swedish High Society; the Swedish Royal circle, well known TV, theater and art-world personalities are said to be regular patrons. In 1996 Chef Emel Ahalen was presented a medal by the king of Sweden for his proficiency in preparation of Swedish cuisine.
The staff both friendly and professional all speak flawless English. Very accommodating to my 8-year-old son, even prepared French fries with his meal. Take a table on the outdoor terrace, it has great ambience.
Very pricey but accepts all sorts of credit cards. A 12-15% service charge plus a 21% value added tax are added to the bill. Proceed carefully when ordering wine and any alcoholic beverages because it can be lethal to your budget. Food is very expensive in Sweden, for those on a budget self-service cafeterias abound.
