This is the best place to eat in town. Set beside Vadstena's busiest commercial thoroughfare, the restaurant occupies a series of vaulted stone rooms that originally were built in the 15th century by the local church. Today the place is warmly illuminated, partially by candlelight, and maintained as the showcase restaurant of the also-recommended Starby Kungsgård Hotel, which lies within a 5-minute walk to the south. Regardless of where you sit, a staff member will hand you two different menus, the simpler of which contains dishes such as cheese platters, steaks, salads, sandwiches, and grilled chicken with herb sauce. The more elaborate menu offers a more upscale and finely honed cuisine, including grilled turbot with saffron sauce, tournedos with pepper sauce, smoked filet of reindeer, and bouillabaisse. Dessert might include a gratin of chocolate with forest berries and homemade ice cream.
