Excellent value for the money

Their daily specials are always worth trying and it is difficult to find food of this quality for that orice in Stockholm. Adding oysters did not make it a cheap lunch after all, but added to the quality

The service was great, the food was amazing. I heard they have the best meatballs in Stockholm and it was the best meatballs I have ever had. Nice restaurant.

This was one of our best dining experiences in Stockholm. It was mid afternoon and we needed some food with a good view. This cafe was perfect with tables looking out towards the park and church. The meatballs were excellent and we also had a rhubarb dessert which was really tasty. They also had excellent selections for beer and champagne,... More

You must try swedish balls in this place. Simple but very good with mashed potatoes, berries and pickles. Little place perfect for couples (You can eat at the bar). Not expensive for Stockholm.

I had saved the location of this restaurant, hoping to find it. I'm glad I did, otherwise we wouldn't have specifically walked in this area looking for a restaurant. Our group of 4 (one 11 years old) all got the meatballs. My previous experience with Swedish meatballs was IKEA, like many people probably. The food was absolutely AMAZING. The kind... More

Delicious meatballs and some nice beers from Sweden. We enjoyed the patio overlooking the gorgeous St. Jacobs Church. Service was excellent.

If you want to try out a proper Swedish traditional lunch you should try out Operakallarens bakficka. It's not cheap but it's well worth it since everything are cooked and prepared at the restaurant kitchen.

I have been coming to Bakfickan for many years and this week's visit offered no surprise: fantastic food in the typical simple setting of a Swedish "Bakficka". You eat at the bar, sitting on bar stools. But the quality of the food is amazing and there are always nice daily specials "Dagens". No Stockholm visit is complete without having been... More

We tried to go here the other night and it was too busy. We decided to go back tonight - early - and my family of 5 got a seat at the counter. We have several members in the family who don't eat fish so they had the swedish meatballs - which are always on the menu. They were wonderful... More

After reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided to give Bakfickan a go for dinner on my first night in Stockholm. Facing the opera, you have to turn the corner on the left to find the restaurant. There is a terrace outside but I found a seat at the bar without a reservation. I arrived just before 6pm... More
