Maritim is a small but very cozy restaurant that serves local food. It's a lot of fish courses as it is in Simrishamn, where they've always fished a lot.
Favorite Dish: I always ask the staff about the daily special, they give you great advices.
Tjörnedala is the farm where Östelen Art Society have its exhibitions so you will find artists and people who like to know them here but also biking parties and food lovers. Also people from the hostel across the road. The restaurant is in a listed building and with great antique interior. On the menu you will find wild boar, lamb and similar local food. Expensive - yes, but still affordable. There is also a great nature trail down to the sea for when you've eaten too much. Rumour has it that the current restaurateurs want to move into Simrishamn but whoever takes over should be equally good as this is a well known establishment.
Favorite Dish: Only one veggie dish - had I eaten meat at the time it would probably have been the gorgeous looking wild boar. Nice beer too!
Mr Buhre himself has become so successful he has come ashore and now buys his herring from colleagues! His wife pickles what he buys and there are loads of varieties to choose from so the queues are long in summer.
Eaten everywhere from the highland coast to north of Malmö, the Baltic herring comes in many shapes. Here in Skåne, it is just fried fresh and served with raw onion, though it is then eaten with mashed potato and lingonberries just as further north in Sweden. Here in the south, it is known as "sill" which to other Swedes mean the bigger North Sea herring found on the west coast (in the rest of eastern Sweden it is known as "strömming"). This is considered "fast food" along the Swedish coast and you best enjoy it sat outside some harbour café. Should a whole meal be too much for you, there is usually a "hard bread" variety too. Mmmmm....
