We happened upon this darling place just walking along. The decor alone is enough to warrant a visit. Then the food was top notch too. Personable wait staff. Cozy yet classy.

Operakällaren is to my knowledge one of the very few restaurants in Stockholm that truly excel in the classic, and in my opinion most difficult, vein of haute cuisine. Every single dish is a feast to the senses. In fact, by the time I took the first bite out of my main course (I had the beef fillet), I was... More

My fiancé Laura and I would like to express our deep felt gratitude to the staff at Operakallaren for the most amazing Christmas Dinner on 22 December 2016. Firstly, thank you for accommodating our last minute reservation. The smorgasbord was truly superb and a most pleasing assault on our taste buds. The quality of the ingredients, attention to detail in... More

We visited Operakallaren just a few days before Christmas and had the opportunity to enjoy the Christmas feast. It is a multi-course meal with certain parts of it being served in the traditional buffet setting. The food was absolutely delicious. Although unusual for a high end restaurant, we really loved the concept of the buffet, because it allowed us to... More

I decided to compare two of the top Julbord (Christmas table) dinners in Stockholm, Operakallaren and Verandan at Grand Hotel. My preference is Operakallaren: We started with the OK (house) Champagne, a good blanc de blancs. The Julbord is a choice of smorgasbord and plates served at the table; the latter include a tail of lobster and a taste of... More

With absolutely exquisite food, service and lovely atmosphere this place is one of my favorites in Stockholm. Very expensive (and worth it), driven by one of the most famous chefs in Sweden this place is uitable for a nice business meeting or to go for celebrations.

Has the air of an old gentlemens' club. Lots of wood and leather. Do not be put off. Super menu, very good food, very attentive service.

I ate here as part of a corporate event with over 150 people. The bar area is fantastic with great architecture and flaming torches visible outside the windows. The quality of the food was tremendous given the sheer number of people they were serving but it didn't blow me away as I imagined a Michelin star restaurant would do.

Everything was superb during our recent visit. Had the tasting menu without the wine pairing because we ordered a bottle of red wine for the table prior to receiving our menus. Would highly recommend doing the wine pairing but even if you don't the sommelier is extremely knowledgeable and was able to help us find a white that paired well... More

This was a great evening. The food was good and the service excellent. The price is high but in terms of value for money it is right up there. I have had worse meals for more money in London. The theatre of each dish from the pre pre starters to the palate cleansers was wonderful. My highlight was the cheese... More
