Could be the best traditional Swedish cuisine in Stockholm

This restaurant serves traditional Swedish cuisine, but it taste even better then when grandma is making food at home (sometimes). I went once with some german colleagues and they were all very happy with the evening. They also have a hidden little bar in the basement, perfect to start down there... read more

The food was nice, but quite expensive for the quality that we got. The shrimp starter was very disappointing. The shrimp tasted like they were old/out of the freezer. The mains were nice.

It's not a secret Tranan serves one of the best and still affordable typical Swedish cuisine in Stocholm! Tables inside are quite packed and in the rush hours people can get really close, butbtye atmosphere is familiar. I do recommend it; I don't eat meat but my wife appointed Tranan's meatballs as the best. I would also suggest råraka, a... More

This place is just amazing. They have the best köttbullar (Swedish meatballs) but you have to ask them because it's not on the menu. I've written a blog post about it too. http://www.kth.se/blogs/abraham/2015/01/the-best-kottbullar-swedish-meatballs-in-stockholm/

Once again we go to Tranan (the Crane). Like an old friend things are the same and lots of memories shows up. Here food has been good for the last 30 years or so. The place itself is an institution. The staff knows what they are doing and a visit is smooth compared to most restaurants. It is perfect for... More

The place (at Odenplan) was packed (on Monday evening) what is the best mark for high expectations. And we were enjoying our meals (and service) very much. The crab appettaizer was excellent also as fried cod, also as the sourbet with expresso for the desert. They have variety of food-seafood is especially good, but other meals (ask for secret meatballs,... More

My husband and I were looking for somewhere where we could have local food and we were lucky enough to find Tranan. As it was a monday night we were able to get a table without having made a reservation but I think it would be a good idea to book the closer you get to the weekend. The restaurant... More

Everyone knows Ikea for its ... meatballs. Well, what only Stockholm people know, is that the best meatballs are found at Tranan's. If you search for a typical local restaurant, where locals gather: go there and order meatballs. Delicious. Thank you, Tranan!
