Nordic entry in Europe’s top station restaurants

It’s “so good the locals go there even if they haven’t got a train to catch”
The romance and motion of rail travel are sometimes accompanied by superb dining experiences at train stations. In a roundup of the top rail-station restaurants in Europe listed by British newspaper the Guardian, there is one entry in the Nordics.
Järnvägsrestaurangen in Stockholm is described as “so good the locals go there even if they haven’t got a train to catch. Virtually unchanged since it opened in 1932 (though a stylish glass wall was added in the 1950s), the restaurant offers good old-fashioned Swedish home cooking (vegetarians will go hungry).”
It adds: “The short lunch menu (each dish is SEK 95, about £7.50) is changed every day, so you may find yourself trying the potato pancakes with fried pork and lingonberries one day, and coming up with an excuse to return for the mustard-marinated halibut the next.”
Other top rail-side dining experiences can be found in Amsterdam, Athens, Berlin, Brussels, Gare de Lyon in Paris, Jungfraujoch in Switzerland, Stazione Termini in Rome, Sirkeci station in Istanbul, and Jimena de la Frontera, Spain.
