If you stay a few days in Stockholm you really should go here. The building itself has so much character, and they serve wonderful traditional, Swedish dishes. We had our engagement dinner here with the whole family and I love coming back. Always go for the lunch if you are concerned that a place is pricy.

This is one of the restaurants in Old Stockholm with the most known history. Bellman (the perpetually drunk poet and legend) used to hang out here. The meatballs á la Zorn (a famous painter) are the stuff of legend. This is no cheap place to eat, but much cheaper actually that I'd have expected. Book a table in advance if... More

This place has been serving food since 1722. Thats almost 300 years. I m pretty sure they will be open for a few years to come. We, a party of 3, tried roasted chicken with mashed potatos for lunch, and we agreed that it was perfect. Great food to affordable prices! I´ll be back

Perfect atmosphere, lamb is excellent, service is flawless. It is not cheap, but worth to spend money for the great quality!

I ordered the meatballs, and was very satisfied with that. Nice and cozy place with a charming history in the walls. I thought the staff was to some extent rude.

When leaving I realized that the food in general was too greasy. I had the HÄLLSTEKT ENTRECOTE. I saw the next door table having "RÖDTUNGA +Flounder Meuniere". It looked fairly too much greasy as well. Not familiar with this standard at "Freden". Hope that "Freden" takes a look at this review.

A very cosy restaurant with a great historic background. The story benind it enchants you and you still find dishes in the menu from the original restaurant. Located in Gamla Stan in a charming street. Great service. Don't miss.

I just got back to my hotel from this restaurant and needed to write a review right away! I am from NYC and have amazing food all around - however this is a gem that can not be replicated anywhere in the world. Parts of the restaurant are from the original 1700s building and the decor gives it a romantic... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
