Loved the food and the service! I felt like a local dining here...very comfortable and everything tasted great...I know he has a more upscaled restaurant, but this was exactly what we were looking for...I liked the atmosphere, but not very lively

We went here for a pre theatre dinner. The food was great but the service, although kind, was kind of slow. We had a really nice evening though and I would definitely come back for the food. They have a large wine list with a wide selection of wines in different price ranges.

3.5/5 is my real verdict. Come here for the lunch. The venue is nice and they offer a great selection of well cooked classical Swedish lunch dishes. Somewhat pricey. Many celebrities eat lunch here. The dinner here is, however, not quite so good.

Swedish restaurants have a wonderful tradition of offering "Husmans kost" or the lunch or dinner meal of the day at very reasonable prices. Eriks Bakfika is one such restaurant and i fully recommend trying this establishment. The food is good and the service excellent.

We ate at Erik's the first evening in Stockholm as it was easy walking from our hotel. The restaurant is very atmospheric and pleasant. Considering how busy it was the service was great (as was the service everywhere we visited). Our meal was delicious, and we would happily return there again and again.

Avoid the tourist traps - leave gamla stan and take a taxi to this little hidden gem just off Strandvägen in Øster Malm. Best burger we have ever had - limited amount of bunn but loads of good wuality meat and nice condiments. Also a variety of good local Swedish dished and an excellent wine/beverage list. Service is relaxed and... More

At the end of our Stockholm visit, we ate dinner at this neighborhood favorite, recommended by our hotel. The atmosphere was friendly and comfortable, noise level good, and the food was quite good. They are known for high quality champagne at an affordable price; the wine list, however, is rather expensive.

This is a small restaurant with modern Swedish cuisine. It is located in the upscale neighbourhood of Östermalm, but still a relaxed place.

Failing to find a free table at the harbour, we stumbled upon this place, and we're glad we did. The restaurant has been open since 1979 and shows it through its genuine vintage feel. The food is also classical, but with modern technique. After being seduced by the restaurant's own champagne, we fell for the seasonal three courser, the sorrel... More

Eriks Restaurants, now a Stockholm phenomenon, started just down the road from here on a boat on Strandv��gen.

It is therefore entirely appropriate that Eriks Bakficka is located where it is, a stone's throw from the bridge over to Djurg��rden. Eriks Bakficka is located on the lower ground floor and has the charming ambience of a neighbourhood restaurant.

The menu takes in Swedish classics such as beef and potato dish Biff Rydberg, as well as seasonal raw ingredients. The restaurant seats ninety people, and guests often remark on how they appreciate that the waiting staff often recognise them after just a few visits. When Eriks Bakficka becomes your regular haunt, you know you are counted as a friend. It's as simple as that.
