“Good food & service”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Wanted to have Swedish meatballs during a business trip to Stockholm. Found this place from Trip Advisor & it was easy to find. The restaurant is small'ish & popular and you cannot make a reservation but I had no problem getting a seat around the bar (I was on my own - may not be the case if there are more of you). Had a crab starter, the meatballs, a beer & a glass of wine, came to around 40€. Plus side was the free Wifi, sitting with strangers who if they are also alone, tend to chat to you. Also from the restaurant, they allow you to go to the disco in the adjoining room without the need to queue up outside.

“Busy and delicious”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Located in the Opera house and little sister of Operakällaren this casual restaurant serves real food! You ate seated on high chairs around a counter or by high tables for two. Salt etc sit in little trolleys that you push around! Swedish meatballs with mash, steak Tartare raw or grilled as well as daily specials-all delicious! This is fine " home cooking" Great decor and atmosphere in the middle of Stockholm. A true classic!

“Our favorite place to eat in Stockholm”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is simply a brilliant place to have lunch! The decor is warm and cosy, the service always efficient and friendly and the food is absolutely wonderful. My husband always has the Biff Rydberg while I tend to try different "menu of the day" dishes. The only negative thing is that you can not make a reservation so sometimes you have to wait a bit for a table.

“Great food doesn't have to cost a lot”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

This is 'basic' food done very well. In fact, I had mashed potatoes that were just divine and would those of Alain Ducasse a run for their money.
Doesn't hurt that bakficka share their kitchen with a top class, michelin-starred restaurant. I'm sure the mashed potatoes over there were just the same. Of course, there's still a big difference but you can taste that it's 'family'. Liked it so much we went several times while in Stockholm, and definitely would go again.
Small, cosy, but can get very busy. Go in early.
Staff is correct but not overly friendly.

“Not really impressed”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Visited for a regular lunch. Nothing was bad, but nothing stood out as good either. Average food, average service, more expensive than average lunch prices in the neighborhood. Might visit again, but chances are rather low.
