I came for the meatballs and was not disappointed, they were amazing. Sure, it's a different dining experience seated at a "bar" but chatting to my neighbour (who had come from Hong Kong for meatballs) and the friendly, helpful staff made it very enjoyable.

I have been several times in Stockholm and each time enjoyed my stay, including the excellent restaurants and friendly service. This time for a short meal before our evening program we have selected Bakficka based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We arrived at a time when it was mostly empty, however the staff seemed to be busy with many thing -... More

Very busy Friday after work. We had to wait, some is okay but this took to long time. Drinks and then we had to wait again. Not many smiles. What has happened to this old fine place?

We went to this restaurant in the late afternoon to have a small dish. In Trip Advisor it was mentioned to be vegetarian friendly. But in fact they had only one vegetarian dish, unfortunately with mushrooms which was a no go. After some discussions the cook was ready to make a risotto which was appreciated from our side. The waiter... More

We went here at noon on a Saturday. There was already a line before the opening time and within 30 min the place was full. We enjoyed the Scandinavian food of this restaurant, as well as the nice selection of Swedish specialty beers. Service was very friendly. Highly recommended.

We didn't find any of the Stockholm restaurants interesting and decided to do a self-guided Swedish meatballs tour. This was our second stop, and it's a convenient one due to the prime location. We came here for lunch on a Thursday in June, and there was a small queue. We waited about 10 min for a seat at the bar... More

Great food and great experience sitting by the bar to eat and drink with most of the other customers. The crayfish toast appetizer was really delicious and the Swedish meat balls main was exactly what I was looking for. Prices are quite high but pretty average for Stockholm. Would definitely go back there.

Everything on the menu looks good and it tastes even better than you would expect. Our son declared that the Swedish meatballs are the best ever. I had the arctic char which was perfectly cooked. The restaurant is small but it does not feel crowded in any way. The waiters are quick and attentive. The view from the restaurant is... More

Tucked away at the back of the opera this is a little gem of a restaurant with great bar seating which means you will talk to your fellow diners. Innovative cuisine with excellent and suitably filling ingredients. So good we went back!
