I just left this restaurant in a huff. Absolutely awful service. One of the worst I've received and I have eaten in many places worldwide. My table had no bread, and other tables did, and the waitress didn't even come to take my order despite other tables coming much later, receiving their drinks and their food orders taken. It has...

The food is really good! Try the Swedish "husmanskost" and you won't be disappointed. The only thing I didn't like so much was the attitude of the waiters. They weren't that friendly and seemed kind of disappointed with life. I didn't feel that welcome that's all. But the food leveled that out.

For our last evening in Stockholm before our cruise, we wanted to go to a restaurant that was a classic Swedish cuisine establishment. Our hotel recommended Prinsen, and it was a very good choice. It is a traditional establishment with rustic charm and on our evening was extremely busy. We had made a reservation long before our arrival in Stockholm... More

This restaurant is bigger than you think. We pitched up relatively late (by Brit standards) about 9.30pm on a Saturday night. The restaurant was still relatively busy and more people arrived after us. Lots of locals but the staff spoke excellent English and there was English translations in the menus. Good choice of dishes across the menu, I actually had... More

This restaurant, in an upmarket area, was recommended to us by the hotel We arrived without a reservation, and we were seated without delay but I would recommend you book for ease. Staff were very helpful. Home made bread arrived on a spike and was tasty. Swedish meatballs came with traditional lingonberries. The meal was excellent, couldn't fault it. Great... More

Was a little hesitant to go here as the hotel recommended it and didn't know if there was a kickback. When we got to this lovely restaurant I could see if was full of locals. Lovely setting, great food and service.

Really poor service -- our waiter ignored us (and several other tables) while he and several others took care of a large table. We understood that he was busy so we were very patient. However, he never even checked in -- we wanted more water, wine and dessert but gave up and finally tracked him down for the bill. The... More

Prinsen is one of the grand addresses of Stockholm and has done an excellent job of staying relevant with the recent wave of "new nordic cooking". It is a good point of reference, as many of the classic dishes are not done corretly elsewhere anymore. At Prinsen, after one bite both regulars and visitors are remembered how light most nordic...
