I don’t eat out much, so you seldom see any restaurant reviews here. Also, when I do eat out, I rarely remember to take out my camera. I know, bad food blogger! Anyway. We recently ate with Lena, Nico and Micke at Dionysos, a charming greek restaurant on Södermalm, the “South Side” of Stockholm City.
It was freezing cold outside, and most places were full, including the one we had originally aimed for. Table reservations you say? No, sorry. Spur of the moment thing. So I consulted my handy Palm Pilot and my list of “restaurants to try” and realised that Dionysos should be just around the corner. We went up there and it looked very crowded. Nonetheless, we were cold and hungry, so we decided to ask. And yeah, sure, they could fit us in! The restaurant was very cosy, and looked warm and inviting.
Dionysos had a marvellous menu. Everything – and I mean everything – sounded great. In the end, three of us opted for a fixed menu, and Nico and Micke ordered a large mixed platter of different meats.
Appetizer – grilled halloumi with salad. Very tasty, I do love halloumi. I liked the presentation, too.
Main course – lamb tenderloin in a tarragon cream sauce. Absolutely spectacular, my favorite part of the meal. Yum, yum, yum!
Dessert – a chocolate cake thingy that was a bit like the Chocolate Oblivion Cake I’ve made, but frankly not as good. Really good, however, were the grapes, swimming in a light cinnamon syrup. Mm! Definitely something to try at home.
We had a nice greek red wine to go with the meal. All in all, it was a great experience, and I’d be happy to go back. I don’t remember the exact prices, but it was very reasonable. I think we ended up paying about 300 SEK per person, including the wine.
