Restaurant Särimner at Birka

A unique Viking Restaurant on the shores of Lake Mälaren 

Welcome to Vikingakrogen Särimner on Lake Mälaren. We are a KRAV- certified restaurant. We are proud to have achieved this important step in contributing to a more sustainable future.

Our Särimner food philosophy

Tavern masterchef Jens Nykvist and restaurant manager Jennifer Löf use local products as often as they can, and always Swedish produce when possible – even the ale and mead – come from microbreweries located on neighbouring islands. Last year our supplier Nyckelbydals Bryggeri created a unique Särimner ale that was an immediate hit! We will continue with this ale in 2022, as well as adding a completely new Birka Beer brewed from natural mushroom yeasts found at Birka!

We have several different mead varieties on hand to sample. One of these is from Stallarholmens Bryggerie, also a local Mälaren producer.

Särimner Restaurant serves Viking-inspired food for the modern palate, served up inside in a rustic interior or outdoors in the fresh air.

Our wonderful outdoor setting is at the lakeside, near the dock. From here one can take in the view over Björkfjärden and some truly spectacular sunsets.

A popular tradition: wild boar grill nights

We continue with our popular tradition of many years – the wild boar grill nights (on Saturdays). Booking available for July 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 as well as 6 and 13 August.  At the grill you can meet master grillmen and hunters Peter and Claes and eat your fill of free-range wild boar hunted from Mälarens forests, grilled whole and served with tasty sides. During the evening the group Medvind plays Viking music for your enjoyment.

If you cannot join us in the evening, have a grill plate at lunchtime, served from 12:00-15:00.

Wild boar grill evenings are only by booking, latest 16:00 on the same day. The ”gillet” begins at 19:00 and the buffet is open from 19:30-21:00.

We also offer our regular evening menu on these evenings.

Note: If we have places over we do allow drop-in guests and there is also the possibility for take-away (popular with our boating friends!)

Please note – Wild boar grill July 9 CANCELLED
