The Philosophy

Restaurant Frantzén Stockholm opened its doors in 2008, envisioned by Björn Frantzén, a Swedish chef renowned for his dedication to fresh, seasonal ingredients and artistic culinary creations.

His philosophy is that regardless of if you have a more affordable lunch, or have a once in a lifetime experience at the restaurant, you should get the best possible cuisine in each category.

Restaurant Frantzén is not the only restaurant in the Frantzén group; at Brasserie Astoria Stockholm you can have lunch or dinner at an average price for fine dining in Sweden, and the group also has restaurants in Singapore, Dubai, London and Bangkok.

The star in this small restaurant empire is of course Restaurant Frantzén Stockholm, considered by many to be one of the best restaurants in the world and awarded three Michelin stars.

About the founder Björn Frantzén

Björn Frantzén is the driving force behind Restaurant Frantzén Stockholm. His passion for food and meticulous attention to detail are evident in every aspect of the restaurant, from the curated menu to the service.

Chef Frantzén’s dedication has earned him numerous accolades, including being named Chef of the Year by the White Guide in 2014.
It was in fact an injury that led Björn Frantzén to becoming a chef. In his 20’s he was a football player for the Swedish team AIK, but turned his passion and attention to food after not being able to play football any longer.

While foodies may not feel happy about his injury, many are for sure happy that he embarked on a career as a chef once his football career was over.

The environment is a combination of industrial, rustic and cozy elements, with a flair of Swedish interior design. Low, comfortable designer armchairs, dark wood panels, a crackling fire, and a beautiful view of Stockholm’s rooftops is what you can expect.
