Classic Swedish gastronomy in a unique environment
Villa Godthem, a unique Swiss-style wholesaler villa from the end of the 19th century, is located on idyllic Djurgården, yet close to the pulse of the big city. It is the classic restaurant kitchen that is villa Godthem's soul.
Godthem has a diverse and lovely crowd of guests gathered for business lunches, dates, weekend dinners, cocktails and weddings for over a century. And it is easy to understand that you enjoy it when classic Swedish food crafts are served in one of the country's most beautiful environments, when the historical wings meet the present in a relaxed and inviting way.
Welcome to the house!
Food & Beverages
The classic restaurant kitchen is close to our hearts. Here you will find everything from plank steak (originally from Villa Godthem) to dishes such as raw rocket, herring tray and Wallenbergare. Our head chef Antonio Molina and his team are constantly working to develop and refine the dishes until they are unique without losing their classic roots.

Celebrate the New Year at the idyllic Djurgården, where the Villa's chef Antonio Molina has put together a New Year's menu that starts with canapés and continues with venison carpaccio, followed by grilled fillet of beef, truffle béarnaise and pommes duchesse, or steamed herb cod. Dinner ends with a saffron parfait with citrus mascarpone and cloudberries in the unique merchant's villa in one of Stockholm's most beautiful settings!
Celebrate Easter at Djurgården
Uniquely located right next to the water at Djurgården is Villa Godthem and here it is perfect to have Easter lunch or Easter dinner with your closest ones – of course in a pandemic-proof way.
The villa's Easter menu starts with herring tray: three different herrings with Västerbotten cream, sour cream and boiled potatoes. For the main course, a lamb roast with ram onions, green asparagus, duck liver, lamb sauce and potato voice is served and, sweetly, a chocolate mousse cake with dulche de leche-ganach and coffee glaze.
Of course, we have also put together a suitable beverage package for the complete Easter meal.

Villa Godthem is a unique wholesaler villa and former private residence that was completed in 1874. It was built as a gift by devoted admirers to renowned opera singer Carl Johan Uddman. The story tells that the voluminous Uddman, unusually, walked home from the Opera One evening and once he entered the hall he exclaimed "I've GONE home!!!" – hence the name. Since the Stockholm Exhibition in 1897, Villa Godthem has served as a restaurant.
