Hectic place but good food and charm:)

Went for traditional swedish restaurant Tranan and was not dissapointed. When we came the window-table opened up and we took a predrink and waited the extra 10 minutes for the table. Ordered my favourite drink Old Fashioned and the bartender nailed it. And I am picky ;) Ordered oysters for first... read more

Had a lovely mean at Tranan restaurant which was recommended to us. We had a typical Swedish meal and it was delicious. Our waiter was so helpful and friendly. I would definitely try and find this hotel, it is a little out of the way but about a 20 min walk from central Stockholm. Ask the waiter he will explain... More

My niece and I were treated to dinner tonight at this lovely restaurant by a Swedish cousin. I had the Wallenberger. It was one of the best meals I have had in my entire life!

This restaurant is a bit outside central Stockholm, be easily reached by taxi. We went on the recommendation of a friend and it was well worth the taxi ride. The restaurant is popular with locals so a reservation is a must! I ordered the veal Swedish meatballs with mashed potatoes and peas and my family both ordered another house speciality... More

Eating at this restaurant was a really delicious and satisfying experience. We started with home-baked breads and wine recommended by our delightful and attentive waiter. We were in a large family group so had a wide variety of tastes and needs and the food was so good everyone was happy - a small miracle with us. We arrived a little... More

Lovely restaurant. The food was delicious. Something that is not on the menu but always available to order is the hidden treat Kottbullar (Swedish Meatballs)! Comes with Mashed Potatoes and Lingonberry Jam. It no uncertain terms they are out of this world. So for our 30th Wedding Anniversary we went to this local favorite and literally ate Swedish Meatballs elbow... More

Great food at this place, especially their 'råraka'. A bit pricy but well worth the money to enjoy the cozy atmosphere and their bar downstairs after dinner!

Learned of this place through a travel guide, then recommendation by a local friend. Our experience confirmed all the positive reviews posted here -- well prepared, satisfying food (especially the meatballs!), friendly service, comfortable/casual atmosphere. Despite closely packed tables we did not feel pressed by space or noise. One thing most other reviews have not mentioned -- a surprisingly interesting... More

I tried Tranan on my visit to Stockholm based on a recommendation from the guidebook and from an employee of the hotel I was staying at. It's essentially a local cafe/restaurant that serves all of the Swedish favourites for locals, natives and visitors. At the recommendation, we had their famous meatballs with potato puree, lingonberries, rich gravy and cucumber with... More
