A short stay in Stockholm and wanted to have some Swedish meatballs (or do you just call them meatballs when in Sweden??). Bacfikan does a great rendition of this dish. Nice charred outside, tasty sauce, and hearty flavor. Yum! Do visit

Agree with Magnus I. Am reluctant to tout this cosy gem of a restaurant embedded into the Opera House, but as a business traveler, I feel compelled. Quaint, homey, and unpretentious, this restaurant delivers excellent food. I have been there twice and it has served...More

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
