One hundred years of guest service!
Villa Godthem has become one of Stockholm’s most historic and well-known restaurants. The house is located steps away from Djurgårdsbron and was completed in 1874, but then as a private residence for the opera soloist Carl Johan Uddman, before it was turned into an inn in 1897. The house was named after Carl Johan Uddman walked home from the opera one evening, and when he was standing in the vestibule, he exclaimed: “I have gone home!” There and then the name Villa Godthem was born.
Joiner’s joy in the house is found in the dining room, on the veranda and in the garden café, and is a large part of Villa Godthem’s history. It is a love for classic cuisine and tasty Swedish dishes that represents the heritage and the heart of our business. Here you can enjoy a good meal with friends and family in a beautiful environment. Our most well-known dish is our “plank steak”, which has become one of our signature dishes since it first made an entrance on our à la carte menu in the mid-1950s. We have been serving guests for over a hundred years, and at Villa Godthem it is equally important to have a meal that is well put together and friendly service. Are you a large group who are having a party, dinner or wedding? Then you can book our club room and chambre séparée. We look forward to welcoming you!
