Restaurant Årstiderna in Malmö

New tastes and influences from near and far blend with regional traditions from Skåne such as spättekaka (a local, sugar-based dessert cake baked on a spit), ålagille (eel feasts), gåsamiddag (the annual goose dinner on 10 November), äggakaka (a traditional thick pancake with fried bacon on top), and endless types of marinated herring.

Eating out in the metropolis of Malmö is relaxed and self-indulgent. The focus is on well prepared and local-produce based comfort food with a European influence, more than on advanced fine dining.
