Sleeping and Dining in Stockholm, Sweden

July 5-7, 2013

Kryp In

The popular Kryp In restaurant, highly rated on TripAdvisor, is located on a quiet street of Gamla Stan. The quaint interior fills up fast in high season, thus reservations are a must. Outside tables are on a first-come-first-serve basis and turn over relatively quickly. Without reservations we were able to get an outside table without much difficulty.

The food is well prepared and thoughtfully presented.

We loved the reindeer

but thought that the fish stew had an odd combination of flavors, dill with tomato and saffron.

Wedholms Fisk

Wedholms Fisk is all about the fish and is expensive, very expensive. While it has mixed reviews on TripAdvisor we thought they served the best quality fish, beautifully prepared, of our 3 weeks in Scandinavia. Dishes tend to be traditional rather than inventive but portion sizes are more than ample. Tables are well spaced in the elegant and warmly lit dining room. The last rays of the evening sun bounce off a wall of mirrors. The all-female wait staff is efficient and friendly. The restaurant is located about a 20-30 minute walk from Gamla Stan.

Rica Hotel Gamla Stan

We slept at Rica Hotel Gamla Stan, located on a quiet street in the historic district. Although an expensive choice (most everything in Gamla Stan is) we enjoyed our elegantly furnished dormer room.  The bathroom, however, was one of the smallest I’ve seen – the window sill doubling as the only counter space. The location is great for walkers, service is excellent, the wifi works, and the breakfast buffet has plenty of options.

  1. The cured salmon and creamed potatoes looks mouthwatering. Hmm. I may attempt to make this dish today. 🙂
