Went for lunch with clients. Old established Swedish dining, serving classic Swedish dishes. Excellent Maitre d' Camilo Barros and service. Fine dining at a reasonable price. Last went 10 years ago and just as good.

The place was nice, good wine & service. I was not too impressed with my meal: I had a fish soup, unfortunately it was spoiled by addition of olives?! My partner had meatballs & those were good.

Prinsen is a classic restaurant that used to cater to artists and writers and the place itself is beautiful. One would think that the warm, casual chic atmosphere would be reflected in the service of the waiters but at least the one we encountered was professional but ice-cold. Not a smile and not a word that was not absolutely necessary.... More

Quite busy but with a good buzz. Took some time before we were acknowledged but still decided to stick around, which I don't regret. Got a lovely table down-stairs with a view of the entire dining room. Quick, professional service and well prepared meal: a stew of ox muzzle and mashed potatoes with an interesting touch of horse radish. It... More

Went to this place recommended to me for a colleague farewell dinner. Once you step in, the ambience is quite good and the chatter of the tables around you fills the air.

One of The best restaurants in Stockholm. IT was so when I was a kid - and IT still is. Fantastic atmosphere and really good food. Try Biff Rydberg! Delicious! Friendly and welcoming staff. Nice to sit outside when weather allows.

Good place to eat some swedish specialties. I ate a reindeer dish: it was good but a little bit sweet. The anchoves were cooked in strange manners but I appreciated them a lot. It is expensive, but there is no difference with other restaurants in Stockholm. The living cost is high in Sweden, the restaurant corresponds to it.
