F12 Restaurant is located at the Royal Art Academy premises, a building with a lot of history, right opposite of the Swedish Government offices. The restaurant F12 has been one of the stronger sparkling stars on the Stockholm restaurant heaven and has received numerous awards and prices. The restaurant holds since many years a star in the Guide Michelin. The restaurant is run by Melker Andersson and his young Franco-Swedish chef Danyel Couet, however; today the principal owner Melker Andersson tends to move between kitchens of all his restaurants so Danyel Couet is the responsible man behind the continuation of the success of F12.
The dining room is decorated in various shades of green and high quality art often prides the walls, the atmosphere is chic and modern, on the verge of minimalism and feels rather formal. The food is innovative and delicious, all dishes demonstrating a perfect mastery in the kitchen. The combinations are subtle of many different flavors and textures; many ingredients are local which makes it even more interesting to sample all the wonderful dishes. As you can expect in such a temple for gourmets the dishes not only taste divine, they are also a treat for your eyes!
Service is impeccable, maybe only rivaled by the nearby Mathias Dahlgren at Grand Hotel however; at F12 the service is not only utterly professional it also feels warm and personal. Most diners select the suggested menus accompanied with suitable wines, this is a real treat that deserves not only time but also an open mind to some combinations that might sound strange at first that creates a wonderful symphony that you are likely never to forget. A visit to Fredsgatan 12 is a gastronomic experience, a very recommendable one. Although bear in mind that Michelin awarded restaurants rarely come cheap, especially not in Scandinavia. The clientele consists of international businesspeople and well-heeled Stockholmers.
