3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

Too crauded, service not efficient ( one or two extra people will be justify) wine with a price too high, and guardrobe that seems to be a service is charged at the end of the dinner. Food was good but on my opinion a little too elaborate. Total price high but mainly due to the wine

Went to this restaurant on a friday night and it was quite busy. Average service, the waitress forgot my boyfriend's espresso and we had to ask for water refill. Lovely bread and food. Our table was located by the window wich was nice but got a bit cold. Don't like though when you have to pay extra for wardrobe.

An old institution with elegance, charm mixed with a modern touch. The traditional dishes ordered were Wienerschitzel good honest, meatballs according to my sister the best in town. Havets Wallenbergare was a great dish, fish and shellfish meat cooked together that complemented and accentuated each other. Winelist is good thou the single glass list is on the short side. Prices... More

We were taken to Restaurang Prinsen by local colleagues. It is an iconic old establishment with a jovial coat waiter in the entrance vestibule; wonderful wood featured decor throughout and good service. I have to say though that the food didn't quite reach the same heights. My Scandinavian friends raved about the meat balls being 'the best in Sweden!'; well,... More

We were recommended by a friend to eat here and were able to grab a spot outside. The service was average but the charm of the restaurant along with the really good even though simple food was exactly what we needed at the time.

This place reminded us of a wood paneled and mirrored Parisian cafe with a Swedish menu and a well-dressed blend of tradition and modernity, business and romance, overseen by efficient towel-over-forearm waiters.

Tender and succulent and very lean...if the rest of the food is this good then you could camp out here for your whole visit to Stockholm. Execellent presentation, wait staff was very professional...cool but professional. A little pricey, but we'd go back.
