Traditional Swedish food in Stockholm

Publish date: 11 March 2021

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, only eight people may be seated indoors at the same table in restaurants, cafés and bars. At restaurants, all guests must be seated while eating and drinking. Businesses also have to impose measures to ensure visitors and guests are sufficiently spaced out. For the latest updated information, we refer to the Public Health Agency of Sweden.

Stockholm's restaurant scene is a melting pot of flavors from around the world, but of course, the best of Swedish cuisine is served as well, often in contemporary interpretations.

Here you will find carefully prepared ingredients such as game, fish and shellfish, and the best that Swedish farms have to offer. Desserts often incorporate Swedes’ traditional and beloved blueberries, lingonberries and cloudberries. Select a dish with the flavors of the Swedish sea or forest, or enjoy herring, salmon and many other delicacies - and Swedish meatballs, of course!
