Overall this location was really nice and homey. The staff was extremely friendly. The food was great. I had the boeuf bourguignon and my friend had the swedish meatballs that are not on the menu, but you can ask for them. They were amazing. The beef was quite a bit dry as were the veggies. Downstairs there's a really cool... More

Awesome dinner, great atmosphere and amazing service from all the staff. We ate traditional Swedish food (salmon and meatballs) and a very good steak tartar as appetizer. Everything was extremely delicious. Happy to have been there in the beautiful Stockholm! Hope to come back again!

They cram you in here but it works really well. The service is fast and friendly and the food is very good (overpriced though). The wine list is enormous. They have about 20 orange wines alone. There is a trendy bar at the back which is worth a visit post dinner.

..however as long as you don't mind a hefty prize tag + giving your cash to Stureplansgruppen (we have our objections, but got the info too late) I'd still recommend it for the ones who'd enjoy a visit to an old classic place in stockholm but also for it's culinary flavors. But we especially thought their wine list was impressive.... More

We have selected the restaurant based on its location as it was close to our hotel and it turned out to be an amazing experience. We had the saltcured salmon as starter which was simply so fresh and delicious, after we shared the veal mousseline, which is almost like meatballs, but better and more juicy. It was the best local... More

Tried the fried herring filets with mashed potatoes. A classic dish served continously since this place opened almost 90 years ago. The melted butter, heated until almost burnt, is the perfect companion.

Last night we, a party of five, had dinner at Tranan. We were really nicely greeted when we arrived and got a nice table by the window. We all decided to eat "Kungsflundra" (plaice) on the bone and the two men were ok with that - and we, the women wanted to know if we could have the fish taken... More

Every year when in Stockholm, we visit. My wife ALWAYS orders the Skagen toast as a main and I alternate between the meatballs and some fish dish. We greatly enjoy the ambience and attentive service we receive. The prices are reasonable for Sweden, although high for us from the New World!

Staying in Vasastan

Neighborhood Profile
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
