This restaurant is intimate, in fact very intimate... My group of four were sat at a table with another group of four other diners. To be fair, it wasn't the restaurant's fault that our neighbors were rude, but our proximity to them was. The service...More

Dined with a rather large group (10) but everyone remarked how intimate the restaurant felt. Loved the historic sense of place and was not disappointed by the menu options or the wine selections either! I will return with my family when I am in Stockholm...More

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

¿Cuanto cuestaría un persona que coma un menu normal?

Hola, el precio es alrededor de 25 euros por persona, siempre que no tomes vino que encarece mucho la cuenta en cualquier restaurante de la ciudad

At Den Gyldene Freden we have served authentic Nordic home cooking since the opening in 1722. Famous cultural personalities, tourists and local regulars visit our historic facilities in Gamla Stan to enjoy the fine food and the genuine atmosphere - for everyday or special occasions. We, the people who work at Den Gyldene Freden are very proud of our heritage and passionate about refining classic courses into modern cooking. Our philosophy is based on the idea that one must make time to cook - and eat - fine food. We make room for international influences, but our base is the Nordic kitchen interpreted in our own personal manner, with great respect for flora and fauna.
