Amazing Swedish food in a friendly atmosphere

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... read 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

Backfickan is a "hip pocket" restaurant to the Operakallaren. Very casual, we sat at outside tables, facing a church. Members of our group had the Swedish meatballs or the grilled fish (char I think). Both were outstanding, perfectly done and really delicious. The meatball were served with creamy whipped potatoes, gravy, ligonberries and pickled cucumbers (better than the ones at... More

We've been fortunate to travel to Stockholm numerous times over the past 10 years. It is one of our favorite destinations. Bakfikan is our favorite restaurant. Probably in the top 5 of all our favorite restaurants. We've probably eaten everything on the menu. It's all wonderful. I love the fried herring, my wife the toast skagen, one daughter the meatballs... More

Beautiful wood bar, comfy and cosy. Very good level of service, friendly but professional. Superb meatballs...melting and tender, with good salted cucumber and lovely sweet lingonberries. Very reasonable for the quality of cooking. A nice, relaxing place to eat...not fancy, but expertly done at every level. Highly recommended.

Visited in the evening. were concerned that we hadn't booked, but walked in . Good food, especially the SOS. Great service in a tiny (28 cover) space.

Nice place with friendly staff and good local food. Beef tartar was great btw, and herring platter as well. My daughters enjoyed meatballs. So nice place for lunch!

We sat in the bar area, but the dining area looked quite inviting with overstuffed chairs and a nice ambience. The waiter suggested a very authentic Swedish meal beginning with beer, schnapps (with pomegranate) and herring appetizers. I loved the portion made for the old guys lost all their teeth. (Even though I have all my teeth, it was excellent.)... More

This is a fantastic, casual and authentic local restaurant. We ate here twice, once at the bar and once at one of the two person nook type tables around the back. The service is extremely friendly, efficient and professional. The menu is limited but full of hearty local fare. We had the steak and béarnaise sauce, the artic char, the... More

The restaurant doesn't take reservations so come early or get ready to wait for a while. The dining room is small but elegant,with few small tables for two or you can sit at the counter, nice if you like to talk with other guests. Classic swedish food well served and very tasty (herrings,salmon,meatballs) Prices are cheap (for stockholm standard!)
