Prinsen is one of Stockholm's oldest dining establishment. We had reservations to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. We were greeted by the manager when we arrived, who was very friendly and thanked us for celebrating her special day with them. We were give a very nice outside table. Also, we were given a complementary glasses of Champaign along with a... More

Like the restaurant which I have tried at several visits to Stockholm. very good Swedish specialities. The waiter was not really selling those things all too well but anyway very good. I had the Lojrom which is a Scandinavian speciality. Very nice to try if you want to try something different.

Its probably a good idea to book ahead if you want to eat inside, though there is moderately plentiful seating outside (with small heaters). The meatballs come with the creamiest, smoothest mash and are extremely delicious. The calf liver is also very rich and tasty. The apple pie was not quite what we expected (and was a bit small) but... More

Friendly service, very clean, typical european outdoor sitting. Simple explanation of quite a sophisticated menu- got a good advise on beer! Just loved their mushroom soup! Dish of traditional Swedish meatballs is an unmistakable -and delicious- choice.

The lunch menu with some traditional Swedish meals is fantastic. Had the meatballs for lunch and they are excellent. This is a classic Stockholm restaurant that is for everyone. The outdoor seating when weather permits is a must.

Due to a change of plans, we found ourselves without a reservation one night in Stockholm. Our hotel conceirge had recommended Prinsen, so we walked by to see if they could seat us. It was a warm night, and the only table available was indoors. Initially, it didn't appear they wanted to seat a family with children, and we had... More

The decor is good The food was excellent and the Swedish meatballs were memorable. The prices were no bargain but similar to any good quality restaurant in Stockholm . Would recommend the place to my own... More

Located in the main shopping area this restaurant has great kerb appeal to accompany a small but specialised menu. We tried the crayfish starter followed by minced veal and meatball main courses. Not too expensive for the food but be prepared to pay heavily for a glass of wine to accompany your meal. Food very well prepared and presented.

A relaxed, casual, Paris bistro style restaurant in the middle of the main shopping area of Stockholm. Average food, but very typical Swedish dishes. Maybe it's because it was exceptionally warm at the time of our visit (over 30° Celsius, which really doesn't happen often up in Stockholm) that we found the food to be too rich and heavy for...
