Restaurants in Stockholm

As you'd imagine, there's plenty of excellent seafood here in top-end restaurants like Michelin-starred Operakallaren in Östermalm. It's also worth trying other traditional dishes like meatballs and lingonberry dishes, at Rolfs Kök, or visiting a café in Södermalm for a coffee and a cinnamon bun – a pastime known as fika. Restaurants open at around 11.30am and close around 12am, with a break between the two sittings. Tipping is not expected.

Operakallaren

Grand gold dining-room

The food at Operakallaren has won a Michelin star. But the dishes fight for attention with the glorious Opera House dining room, with its gold-framed paintings, carved ceiling and huge chandeliers. Guests are businessmen by day and special occasion diners by night. The platter of northern delicacies features smoked eel, reindeer and Swedish red caviar.
