The protagonist here is the herring. The customer has a lot of choices, the portions are pretty big and there are a lot of garments as well. A fish canteen at its best.

If you ever visit Stockholm as a man you just must have fried herring “stekt strömming” at this legendary place. I prefers the version with knäckebröd, union and pickled cucumber. Some like the mached potato version, is a matter of taste to be discussed.

I make a trip here every time I am in Stockholm. Most of the time it's for some hot fried herring on mashed potatoes with pickles etc for lunch. But the little dish of herring on crispbread is also tasty if looking for a snack.

I am an American, never a traveler to Sweden or Scandinavia before now. We were passing through Sweden to a country southeast. My knowledge of the typical food is strictly from the Internet and food TV; but I was excited to try the fried herring...More

It’s a little herring stand that is located on the southern end of Gamla Stan. If you don't like oily fish (e.g. sardines, mackerel), then I wouldn't bother as you probably won't like it. The clientele seems to be equally split between locals and foodie...More

The place is located in the outer of Gamla Stan near the souvenir streets. Pretty decent fried fish and the price is quite reasonable given the serving size. There's only some benches on the open area, might not be suitable when it's raining or snowing.

For those who love fish and want to eat something cheap in the Old Town, Nystekt Strömming is a great option. I was there once this week and it was closed (although according to the opening hours it should’ve been open) but the second attempt...More

Couldn’t pass by this place while being in Stockholm. Totally worth visiting. We chose a plate for 80 SEK and it exceeded our expectations. Meshed potato, fried herring, cucumber with sauce, plus a cranberry sauce for fish and salad. Tastes good. I recommend it for...More

What can I say more? It was fresh, unheard and delicious! You can sit and eat on the place and you can feel the Stockholms city vibes around.

You can have lunch during strolling around Gamla stan. The open sandwiches were very nice and their prices were good for my pocket! Lol

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
