Delicious!

Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner here. Perhaps a little unoriginal of me, but I had the Swedish meatballs and they were fabulous! I'd highly recommend this place.

Restaurant Prinsen has been in the same place since 1897 - an attractive medium-sized restaurant which gave off a 'vibe' of being family-owned though that's just a guess. The food is very good, and the service is pleasant and attentive without that annoying "Hi, I'm Sven, I'll be your waiter" and "Is everything all right?" nonsense you often get in... More

Hadn't been in Prinsen for nearly 20 years but the decision to revisit it proved to be a good one. The restaurant is bistro style, retaining features that show that it is no newcomer to the block. It would have a lovely warm feeling on a cold winter's night. On the warm summer's night we were there you could sit... More

Definitely try the Swedish Meatballs. Food was really good, big portions so you won't walk away hungry. Service was ok.

A classic and favorite restaurant in Stockholm. This is a very nice restaurant any time of the year. They serve their specialties as well as new additions to the menu. But Wallenbergare and their warm scampi sallad are my very favorites.

We loved Prinsen! We went late at night so it wasn't overly busy. Food was great - we had the herring appetizer with Swedish meatballs (first of many on the trip) and veal. Our service was good, although I see a.lot of negative comments. I would recommend going to prinsen and trying the meatballs -either make a reservation or visit... More

Food is good but not great - the waiter straight out of La Cage aux Folles, who will insult you in the nicest way & ensure you have a wonderful evening. Has a great reputation which means you MUST book a reservation or wait a long time. Enjoy the fun!!!

Menu was very attractive and we chose a variety of Swedish specialties. All our food was top notch but the service was lacking. We waited long after been sat to order, we had to re-request various order items, and the effort to get attention was grandiose: a final shout of "hey" worked.
