PM & Vänner, Växjö

PM & Vänner is a Michelin star restaurant and the only restaurant in Sweden with a Grand Award by Wine Spectator. However, for PM & Vänner it all boils down to their three corner stones: forest, lake and meadow.

PM & Vänner is a gastro hotel aiming to create a modern interpretation of the culinary traditions of Småland. In order to do so the restaurant uses local produce from the forest, lakes and meadows of the area – creating Swedish food with a twist. Thanks to the chefs’ dedication, skilled craftsmanship and creative gastronomic thinking, the menu at the restaurant is constantly evolving. There is an impressive selection of wines from all over the world available too, and like the menu, the wine selection is frequently assessed in order to create a unique gastronomic experience. Furthermore, PM & Vänner is a prime example of Swedish design and architecture. The key elements ‘forest, lake and meadow’ are visible in the design too, such as the oak floor sourced from local forests and the bathrooms decorated with limestone from the nearby island of Öland.
