Bastard

With an urban, edgy vibe and excellent home-cooked food, it isn’t hard to see why Bastard has become one of the most prestigious Malmö restaurants. This institution has been awarded a Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand for its great food, served with a friendly price tag.

About a decade has passed since Bastard first opened its doors. It quickly became one of the most popular restaurants in Malmö and today it is somewhat of an institution for many locals and visitors. Bastard serves traditional home-cooked food with bold, earthy flavours, influenced by culinary traditions from all over Europe. The ingredients are locally sourced and you’ll find innovative yet well-balanced items on the menu – such as oysters with rhubarb granité or plum jam rippled with vinegar caramel for dessert. 

Bastard has been awarded a Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand – a lesser known Michelin Guide award for restaurants offering excellent food and great value for money.
