About Heart & Bones

I stood in a rented catering kitchen at Ristens Marina in beautiful and lovely Öregrund and struggled with all the preparations for the days service. It was the height of summer and I had opened the Bojabäs restaurant in a small boathouse in the harbor. Unaware that Öregrund had so many summer guests, I did not expect this onslaught to a small fish restaurant. This was supposed to be a pleasant summer hobby.

I was very tired and realized after half the summer that my planned vacation with Katarina and the family did not get off. Not good!

The phone rang!

A nice guest at Bojabäs wanted a meeting. We met and Sture told us that there was a restaurant in the Old Stadshotellet that might be available. I was as usual interested! Went there and looked and got stuck. It became my last tavern. Heart & Bones.

A restaurant I put all my heart and soul in, it’s the last! I have landed, after all these years with many taverns, I feel secure. Nothing awkward, not on a quest, groundbreaking or effective but just me.

Welcome to my home!

Melker Andersson


A place to enjoy. A certain measure of conservative city hotel meets modern function and design.

Carefully, selected ingredients and pure flavors cooked in Melker’s spirit, no hassles, just very good.

The bar

Small, intimate and perfect to slip into. Before the food, after the food or why not at any time?

Our fine bartenders serve delicious cocktails and of course everything else you expect to be served in a bar.

The living room

Like home but with much better service. It’s exactly how we thought when we decorated the living room with Morris wallpaper and beautiful sofas and armchairs.

The living room is a place to meet for both large and small company. Eat something good from our bar menu and find a favorite in our drink menu.

Of course you can book the living room for your own after work or cocktail and mingle.

Private rooms

Sometimes you want something else, maybe celebrate something, have dinner with business people without being disturbed. Then you can book our private rooms. We have three cozy rooms for the respective 18, 12 and 8 people.

Brick Bar

The bar with its own entrance, guest DJ and pulse.
Open Fridays and Saturdays.
Mattias Hedbom is the entertainer.

Brick bar’s delicious cellar vaults invite a party beyond the usual. Here is an opportunity to organize private parties, dinners and wine tastings. Or maybe you have your own party idea?
