We will be visiting Stockholm in the summer and we would like some recommendations for restaurants.
From some research i did I found the following restaurants of interest:
Den Gyldene Freden
Mathias Dahlgren (Matbaren and Matsalen)
Please let me know your opinions on the above and any other recommendations you may have.
Also please tell me if there is a period in the summer during which many restaurants are closed.
Note that it's been a while since I was home in Stockholm.
Gondolen is arguably one of the best restaurants in Stockholm, with a matchless view. Exceedingly expensive.
Wedholms Fisk is another winner. Best buy is probably the tasting menu with wine pairings (ca. US $150). Seeing as you can hardly get a glass of wine for less than $15 these days, the price almost seems reasonable!
Gyldene Freden is the quintessential historic restaurant -- I remember the food being fine, the atmosphere better than fine.
Prinsen was always a favorite haunt. Get the meatballs, or something "home cooked" off the menu.
In general, fish and seafood shine in Stockholm. Although I'm sure Italian restaurants offer great options, I'd stay with traditional Swedish fare made more contemporary (like at Riche) or fish/seafood.
You have picked some of the priciest options in Stockholm -- I had sticker shock the last time. BUT I did eat well. Swedish food has come a long way .... I don't remember many major restaurants closing in the summer like in Paris.
