We had reservations which was necessary even on a Sunday night. The place while casual was also very nice. Good spot to have dinner with friends in a lively atmosphere.

When friends and family come to visit, this is where I take them. Really charming interior and staff is always helpful / friendly, even when it's really busy. Food is consistently good. As others have said, get the meatballs!

Dinner on May 6th: grilled sea bass with mussels, garlic sauce, and chorizo. Interesting blending of flavors. Glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Chocolate truffle with Italian-style espresso. 475 Sek. Cannot give 5 stars because the wine was not so good as the food. Recommended.

We were privy to information that meatballs are not listed on the menu, but always available. My husband (embarrassingly) said to the waitress, "these are way better than IKEA"! We had a drink in the bar downstairs before dinner and a wonderful Italian red wine with our food. Our waitress was great and the atmosphere was perfect!

Good old and well know Tranan, busy Cousy and very loud! Super fun great food and wine, prices are not too bad. Tip: they make some great cocktails too, the Martini Espresso is a must!

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon after the lunch rush. First we enjoyed a drink and a spot of people watching on the terrace in front of the restaurant (it was busy with late afternoon drinkets enjoying the sun). The restaurant wasn't busy given it was 3pm by the time we decided to take our table. However, the atmosphere... More

I was unlucky to arrive late and all by myself, and wanted a decent evening meal. The hotel advised thsi place, sure that I would get food there near 22.00h. Unfortunately, there was almost nobody left, but it must a fancy place and rather crowded. The steak was cooked to perfection, the plate well dressed with a variety of vegetables,... More

We had a lovely experience at Tranan though it is well deserving of a four star rather than a five star review. The food was all good but some dishes were not as good as others. The scallops, herring, meatballs and bouillabaisse were all excellent but the truffles in the steak tartare were overpowering and the venison capaccio wasn't anything... More

Many have commented about the delicious meat balls that are not in the menu and that's because there's a separate bar menus downstairs which the will serve in the serve if requested.

Tranan used to be one of my hangouts when I lived in Stockholm 1992-1994. I always went there when I wanted to have solid Swedish food and also for drinks in the evenings as tey used to have good DJs there. Last week I visited Tranan for the first time since I left. The lunch was packed with locals and... More

Staying in Vasastan

It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
