Description: Since 1931, KB Restaurant and Bar has been a regular haunt of artists and actors who have left their mark on the design, décor and walls of the restaurant. The tradition continues with an ever changing exhibition by today's artists. Situated a stone's throw from Norrmalm's Dramaten and theatre district, KB Restaurant offers a wide range of traditional Swedish fare as well as dishes with a non Swedish influence. There is an extensive wine list from both Europe and the New World. Also a long list of whiskies and Swedish liquors.

“Lunch here was special”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

From the minute you walk in, you get the feeling that this place is special. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The lunch menu was very interesting and we had some really delicious food here.....and by Stockholm standards, reasonable enough.

“Where regulars are in majority”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

In the middle of Stockholm city, entering this place sends you to another town in an-other time. And yet not. It’s hard to explain, but this restaurant somehow is its own universe. Most of the customers are regulars and well known to the staff. Maybe that’s the reason for the direct and “equal” tone between staff and guests. Don’t expect to be overly courted here, but at the same time well taken care of.

Food is generally very traditional, Swedish restaurant food. It’s well prepared and swiftly served at a higher end cost. Very noisy and busy at peak lunchtime.

“Genuine local”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We came for a business lunch on a Tuesday. This is good, solid quality all-over without any creative edge. It was crowded by local celebs and you overhear everything from the tables next to you. There is a strong local touch to the food which my international guests apprecieted. All in all, you get what you can expect without any surprises and they charge quite a lot for the experience,

“Artists restaurant”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

KB means Konstnärsbaren or Artists Bar. It's been around for more than 80 years and has always had a good reputation. The food is of a high quality with both Swedish and international cuisine. The atmosphere is artistic interior decoration, paintings etc. Prices are rather high.
