On a short break to Stockholm we decided to sample some traditional Swedish food. This lovely old restaurant was just what we were looking for. Great service and ambiance. The S.O.S herring dish was particularly delicious.

We had an excellent dinner with local items in a remarkable location. Since their remodeling a couple of years ago though, I think they have toned down the overall level of the restaurant. Used to be higher-end, now relatively mid-level service and environment.

Location, interior, food, stuff, cutlery - everything was absolutely great. Soup on lobster was phenomenal.

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)

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.
