“Classic but pricey, there are better alternatives”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Extensive but expensive wine list. Classic but expensive menu... see where this is going?
In my opinion there are better alternatives to this restaurant in Stockholm. But if you are in the neighborhood, got some money to spend and wanna gobble down some traditional Swedish cuisine, why not?
Friendly, flawless service and pleasant atmosphere.

“Good but not great”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We visited Tranan in June (taking 2 locally-based Swedish relatives with us) based on the recommendation that Tranan was a good to try typical Swedish food. The restaurant was very busy even at 8:30 pm on a Thursday evening so reservations are definitely a good idea. The room was very warm and the noise level was high with tables very close together. We tried a couple of Tranan classics - the herring fried in butter and the meatballs – as well as bleak roe and while the food was good it was not an overly memorable meal. The service was pleasant and efficient. We enjoyed our visit but there are so many great restaurants to eat at in Stockholm that we’re are unlikely to return here.

“Exactly what you want!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

This is a great restaurant with genuine Swedish food + some French dishes ! I prefer food that isn’t to fancy. The food at Restaurant Tranan is perfect for me! Try for instance their delicious meatballs (they are not on the menu, you have to especially ask for them). Service is okay, but nothing exceptional. All in all, a nice, not to expensive Stockholm reastaurant.

“One of my favourite”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Try the meatballs or Beef Rydberg. This is always a safe bet and we return on a regular basis
