El Diablo

TexMex in Stockholm? What's more, great TexMex? Allt om Stockholm readers voted this the city's best restaurant of any kind in 2007, no doubt thanks to its excellent array of Latin-tinged, Southwestern dishes, each of which comes with its own tequila suggestion.

One of the hippest places to dine in all of Stockholm, Kungsholmen is ultimately a wonderfully glorified food court, with seven stations (sushi, salad, soup, bread, bistro, grill, and ice cream) and a cocktail bar. It’s also set on the picturesque Riddarfjärden bank.

One of Sweden’s most famous (and least modest) chefs, Pontus Frithiof unveiled this gem in August 2007. Spanning three floors, are three concepts (oyster bar, cocktail bar, and main dining room) and three menus (Harvest, showcasing veggies; Catch, focusing on fish; and Season, highlighting the freshest of everything).

With only ten tables and 18 seats, this SoFo/Södermalm nugget packs them in like, well, sardines. The great Mediterranean-inspired food, friendly service, and affordable prices guarantee that they’re happy sardines, though.
