Prepare to spend the evening there....the food and the service are the show. Elegantly pressed, either pre-fixe or ala carte, each course ( and in between) are presented like acts of a play. Fish for the evening was Artic Char and Striped Perch. Lamb, beef and Quail complete the menu. Try the chocolate dessert to complete your experience. 3 1/2 hours will fly by.

Restaurants in Stockholm are in general expensive - Operakallaren is at the top end of this spectrum. There were four of us for dinner and the total bill was over £1000. We all opted for the Degustation Menu with matching wines - in the case of the two ladies, they were able to opt for half portions of the matched wines which was a very good facility. The food was extraordinarily presented and the taste of each of the seven courses was second to none - absolutely delightful and a true astronomic experience. What tipped us over the £1000 mark was two glasses of 1946 Macallum Special Reserve whisky!!! We experienced superb service which made this a truly memorable night. Would we go back?.....Most certainly!!!

We enjoyed a magnificent meal in this restaurant. The venue was refined, and the staff were charming to a one. We opted for the seven course tasting with wine experience. This was not too large at all, and was truly one of the finest dining experience of my life. It did come with one of the finest bills I have seen, but it was a special occasion, and was definitely one to savour.

This was my second visit to Operakalleren - it was the Swedish Meatballs which drew me back and again I was not disappointed. A delicious starter of crayfish salad set the tone and, though not cheap, the quality and taste of the food was excellent. If the weather is fine customers can sit out on the verandah type decking, but it is much nicer and more ornate inside, without intrusive music to hamper conversation. Highly recommended.
