Traditional Swedish food in Stockholm

Publish date: 12 November 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Swedish government has restricted the sale of alcohol in bars and restaurants, until further notice. No alcohol is to be served after 8 pm (20:00). This might lead to some restaurants and bars closing earlier than usual, or not opening at all.

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!
