For the sixth consecutive year Proviant was awarded Proviant a Bib Gourmand by Michelin. A BIB Gourmand awarded to restaurants that serve good food at a reasonable price. I believe this very much highlight the personality of Restaurant Proviant.

A first glance at the menu gives you the feeling this is a french bistro but a closer look shows everyone that Proviant is all about the freshness and the origins of what they serve. From the starters we tried the Swedish toast (se below) with shrimps and salmon and the forest mushrooms on toast – they were both lovely.

From the mains I was a bit defensive and went for the Steak Tartare which was lovely but maybe a bit ordinary (not their fault) but uniquely served with whiskey to pour over the meat – fun and brought a good new taste to the dish. Most appreciated was probably the Lemon sole on the bone with cabbage, apple with fennel & tarragon sauce – looked really fantastic.

Proviant is a Small, cosy restaurant, limited menu but nothing really missing. On top of serving really well cooked, really good food, it was served with very good timing (and a smile). And for the great quality we got, I feel that the menu was quite reasonably priced.

Two important things to remember:

1) Please visit the butchers shop located next doors. Fantastic

2) On sunday they have a set 350 SEK menu (3 dishes) which usually is fantastic.
