    Två Krögare (Bullen): A Malmö institution

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is tucked away on a side street to the pedestrian area downtown, and you could easily be fooled into thinking nothing special of it. That's until you enter, and are met by cheerful staff and a special ambience which comes from the fact that it has a high ceiling but more of a snug old library interior with golden leather wallpaper. The place is an institution amongst Malmö's restaurants, not for its outstanding food but for its history. It used to be a billiard hall in 1906 when it opened, and then they started serving food to the players in the evening. The owner was also into pigeons and had them in the loft when they didn't participate in various championships. After changing owners some times, it ended up becoming a British-French style pub in the 1970s which was then a first for Malmö! Nowadays. Två Krögare ("Two restaurateurs") is still simply known as "Bullen" which is short for Bull's Eye - its name in the 70s when people came here to play darts. Today, it is a nice mix of new and old in that you can still have fun here, and meet both dining couples and the odd overly refreshed Malmö local. By Malmö standards there is a great beer selection from all over Europe even if it is dominated by British and Belgian brews. Food is good, with Sunday menues and so on. Schnitzels, fish gratin and other down to earth international dishes which are perhaps predictable but which you lack elsewhere when you get in the mood is mixed with some Swedish classics. :)

    Favorite Dish: Fish gratin with mashed potato.
