Description: At Den Gyldene Freden we have served authentic Nordic home cooking since the opening in 1722. Famous cultural personalities, tourists and local regulars visit our historic facilities in Gamla Stan to enjoy the fine food and the genuine atmosphere - for everyday or special occasions. We, the people who work at Den Gyldene Freden are very proud of our heritage and passionate about refining classic courses into modern cooking. Our philosophy is based on the idea that one must make time to cook - and eat - fine food. We make room for international influences, but our base is the Nordic kitchen interpreted in our own personal manner, with great respect for flora and fauna.

This is an historic restaurant in the old town. Food was good and service attentive. The candles make for a nice atmosphere.

We went there for a late lunch. It was a small but interesting setting. For four the table was very small. There was a limited selection and one of the main entrees was not available. What we got was OK, but not outstanding. The service was rather slow.

One of Stockholm's oldest restaurants, located in the old town. Small dining room on the street level and several dining rooms in the basement with vaulted ceilings.

Pros:
- Nice location, convenient for a walk
- Nice ambiance inside
- Good Swedish food

Cons:
- Can get a bit noisy

Very much appreciated the three types of herring I tasted as appetizer, presented with schnaps and new potatoes. This was followed with Swedish meatballs ("kotbullar") with cucumber and lingonberries ... delicious. Very worth a visit!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us and luckily we're able to get same day reservations. We ordered a bottle of wine sat out on the front porch area to people watch which we really enjoyed.
The bread is delicious but be sure not to fill up on it.
Had tartare and the herring for apps
Then went for the traditional meatballs which came w a large portion of mashed potatoes. Very filling dinner if your looking for a hearty meal. Also ordered the fried gnocchi that were tasty along with a nice bottle of red wine.
