This place is on Odenplan, not in the centre, so it has to be good to pull in other than local punters and it does. The food is solid but varied. The service is cool and capable. The clientele varied and agreeable. You need to trim your order not to feel your wallet is hoovered (though that is the norm... More

My collegue and me had a nice evening and a very tasty Swedish diner in Tranan. Staff was very friendly and advised us a lovely meal. Although tables are closer together than I am used to in a restaurant, it didn't bother me at all.

Their Biff Rydberg was just amazing, we also had the rib eye steak which was almost as good, fried herring was not up to the same standards but still ok. The service was quite friendly for such a busy restaurant. Note that, this is a very popular restaurant with the locals and you may want to make a booking for... More

Through the years I have been visiting Tranan a number of times. Often, but no always, enjoying my favourite "Rimmad lax med dillstuvad potatis" which in Tranan is one of the highlights but really, all their dishes are good. I have tride many. The restaurant has succeeded all through the years to keep a certain atmosphere, a high standard and... More

Very tasty salmon eaten downstairs because the upper level was almost full..a reduced "pub" menu instead of a full restaurant menu at same prices..not correct in our opinion..a pub is different from a restaurant. .good service but prices should be reduced downstairs..

Recommend a visit to this place if you are looking for authentic Swedish fare. Tried the Swedish meatballs were perfect. Couldnt resist coming back another evening for dinner and treated myself to the Hashbrowns with fish roe. Very good. Highly recommended. Ambience is great and excellent for business, casual or romantic meal.

They deserve their very good reputation for excellent food and personal service. I visited on a busy Saturday evening (alone) and was given a table for four to myself despite it being quite full and lively, with reservations aplenty. Made such a change from being shoved near the loo door on a poky table. Recommend the scallops to start and... More

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel and since a lot of other restaurants in our neighbourhood were closed on a Sunday night, we decided to have dinner there. The main course was average at best. Simple food, no effort was made to make it special. It wasn't bad, but for the price they charged, we'd expected more than just... More

We ate at a lot of restaurants in Stockholm, but Tranan will never be forgotten. we ate meatballs in Stockholm before but the meatballs here are unlike any other and very big sizes too. It was amazing, a must try. The blond waiter with the beard whose name I forgot was the friendliest one we met in Stockholm, very helpful... More

I came here with my boyfriend as we have a list of restaurants we aim to check out in Stockholm. I had fish with a lovely potato/mushroom puré. Gluten free: No problem. The lovely waitress was quick to understand what we wanted and she also had very nice humour, My boyfriend had meat and he said it was nice too.... More
