In May 1945, peace is proclaimed all over Europe. The Löwander family runs their old fashioned restaurant in Stockholm, but the small amount of patrons worries them. The eldest son, Gustaf, is willing to resort to unconventional methods to solve their problems. His brother Peter is suspicious of him and represents an even bigger threat. Meanwhile, their naive little sister Nina runs into a stranger who she shares an impulsive kiss with, a kiss that will have long-lasting consequences. Calle Svensson makes an attempt to become one of DK's scullions to provide for his family, but his grumpy old boss is not making it easy for him. Margareta, who is working as a waitress, is struggling to get back custody of her three-year-old son while at the same time a forbidden love makes her position even more precarious.

Did You Know?


Even though it's called Djurgårdskällaren the restaurant isn't located on Djurgården island but in the neighboring Östermalm district. The street sign on the building says Narvavägen, which begins by the main bridge to Djurgården. In reality however the street is Haga Kyrkogata in Gothenburg. See more »

Excellent series
31 March 2020 | by monimm18See all my reviews

The plots and subplots are great, the character development is great, the acting is great, the depiction of the periods are excellent, the social connotations spot on. Someone called this "a Swedish Downton Abbey". Pretty close. Totally worth the time. First season free with Amazon Prime. At the end of it I was more than willing to pay for a Sundance subscription just to keep watching, so beware :)
