This was our first meal in Stockholm, and ended up being our favorite. The Swedish meatballs were amazing, as was the Reindeer. They had a fun bar set-up that you eat at, so you may be sitting next to other people, but it wasn't a problem. They don't take reservations, so if you're headed there on a busy night, just... More

One door to the right of the entrance to Operabaren you Will find Bakfickan. Eventhough they have the same menue (and the same price) it's not close to the experiance you will get at Operabaren.

All bar seating. Avoid if you're a party of 4 or more. Good meatballs, but do not order the lobster soup, I've had wayyy better than this even in a regular bistro. The soup tasted like beer-ish, I wondered if they put beer in it. A tad bitter and alcohol-ish flavour. Do get the meatballs and perhaps try the reindeer... More

The food is good. However, I really don't like the service providing there, especially the attitude of the waitress. My credit card was not accepted in the resturant and can be accepted before and after this meal, it only happened in this resturant when I was in Sweden. the resturant cannot accept other currencies or any other methods while my...

A few guidelines when visiting this restaurant: No bookings. Do not approach a table or seat by the bar until it has been cleared and set. Do not push yourself into the restaurant when other people are already waiting to get seated, most likely you will be blocking the staffs' way and be much too close to other guests trying... More

like home cooking. We had the "Köttbüllar" with mashed potatoes and Salad. The small Restaurant is like a bar, nice atmosphere, but the whole lunch is no longer than one hour.

This place will provide you with good introduction to Swedish food. The service was exceptional. I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the restaurant too. It has an endearing old school vibe to it.

Always nice to get a place at the bar desk in this place. It is almost always full, so you better be prepared to queue up. Once inside you can choose between several Swedish classics. This time we both had a wonderful plate of fish & chips, large pieces of flakey cod with a crispy exterior not overwhelmed by that... More

Perfect start to my stay in Stockholm. The meatballs were great, loved the flavor and texture (thanks to the crunch of the pickled gherkin). Wine was paired well and the ambience is relaxed.

Typical swedish dishes such as meatballs and salmon in a nice surrounding. International and a lot of tourists and easy to talk to your neighbors when sitting at the bar. Pretty intimate. Not as expensive and "stiff" as the main restaurant and not as small portions and innovative but you ll for sure be full, happy and satisfied when you... More
