Tips on restaurants, bars, cafes in Ystad

Villa Strandvägen

The heart of the restaurant starts from the kitchen, and the chefs love to cook and create good combinations of seasonal and local ingredients.

The evening at Villa Strandvägen starts with an aperitif and a bread and pickling service, then four dishes are served per person that the guest can choose themselves and they can distribute however the guest wants, small cold serves, hot small serves, cheese & dessert and smaller hot dishes. The villa offers a dynamic and solid drinks list, on which there is something that appeals to most people, as they have one foot in the classic drinking world, and the other foot in the modern one.

Le Petit Bistrot

A French restaurant with a constantly changing menu, what they served yesterday can be replaced today. They serve classic food that you usually recognize and that is cooked from scratch. The restaurant has a small but well-curated wine list with many different varieties by the glass and puts full focus on personal service and a pleasant and relaxed environment.

In 2022, they won an award in both the restaurant of the year but also in the Scanian world cup of the year.
