Prinsen restaurant has a very nice athmosphere, old traditional nice building in the city, and the service is just super. J was there in march 2015 and had "Biff Rydberg" and j can tell it is the best "Biff Rydberg" you can get in Stockholm. They also have other good traditional swedish food alternatives like "Wallenbergare"!

Very nice traditional swedish restaurant. Pleasant and cosy ambiance, good service and nice table. If you are looking for a good address is Stockholm, this is worth trying. A little bit expensive like all places in Sweden, but a good moment guaranteed.

Lovely, peaceful setting right in the middle of downtown. Had the meatballs, a Swedish traditional delicacy and they were just delectable! Highly recommended!

We had a 3 course meal, and the starter (reindeer tartar) and main course (slow cooked lamb) were delicious. A bit disappointed by the dessert, but not enough to ruin the great impression I got from this authentic, classy restaurant. Very friendly and professional staff. Great location.

Loved it: very good food, very nice place, very nice staff, perfect location. I will definitely go back. In fact, it's that rare thing nowadays: a proper restaurant, which feels like it, where food is good, and it's pleasant to be in.

Be sure to make a reservation if you are more than two people. I have passed the restaurant several times always people standing out side as well quit often fancy cars parked outside so have not dared to enter. Finally I was inside everything was rustic and look as I nothing has changed over the last 50 years, but still... More

Decent food but questionable wine by glass - at least the red we tried. Biff Rydberg and Wallenbergare are some of the most popular choices.

If you know Chicago, you probably know Gibsons. Well Prinsen is effectively the Gibsons of Stockholm (ultimate compliment). Great venue & menu but it all starts with a character of a coat check man! Jovial and friendly, he sets the tone. Inside the service was also great, as was the food. We tried Swedish meatballs which were fabulous. Check out... More

We dined at Prinsens' on a Sunday evening and were warmly welcomed. We sat near the window and had a nice table. Staff was very friendly and attentive, and the Food very good. We enjoyed the Swedish meatballs and the "Hackbraten" to no end so that we decided to come again, same week, for lunch. my Lax Pudding was great... More
