Came to Tradition at the end of our stay in Stockholm as a bit of a treat, and my word we did not regret it. The staff were extremely friendly, the setting was intimate and cosy, and the food was absolutely fantastic. Although it is marketed as being on the pricier side, it was well worth it, and I highly... More

My Swedish friends took me and my girlfriend here for a traditional Swedish meal and it didn't disappoint! All the options on the menu looked great and it was difficult to decide what to choose. The wine selection was also good. The service was friendly. It was expensive versus British standards, but that's just Sweden in general! If I revisit... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. Ambiance is calm and laid-back. Service was understated and discrete. Everything we ate was good. The Swedish bread was delicious. For starters we had the reindeer and the salmon - both very tasty. Swedish meatballs for main were good. The vegetarian choice was also good though the dumplings got a bit heavy by the end.... More

It was Good Friday so happy to have this place for dinner. It is located in Gamla Stan (the Old Town), not far from the Royal Palace. It has a pleasant ambiance and everything we had was delicious.

The restaurant was recommended by our tour guide as serving Swedish food at a reasonable price, for Gamla Stan. It was quiet with a modern decor and comfortable; not over heated like some places when you go indoors. I had the steamed cod in parsley and egg sauce which was elegant and satisfying and there was also a Swedish bread... More

Tradition was recommended to us on a Walking Tour of the city and we were impressed. The standard of food was very high (the reindeer starter and the meatballs were fantastic) and unlike other places we'd been in Stockholm, the customer service was attentive, friendly and fast. We paid a little more than other places but in the end it... More

Really nice restaurant that serves modern Swedish cuisine. Good choice of fish and meat. The Morrell soup and the potatoe cake with roe were wonderful. The beef with mild mustard cream sauce was excellent the puddings are certainly worth a try. The Cloudberrys with vanilla icecream was exquisite. 3 courses with a bottle of wine for 2 works out around... More

Very much enjoyed our time here sampling classic Swedish food. The environment was casual and relaxed and the food was well prepared and very good. Prices were very reasonable. It did not feel like a tourist trap though most guests visiting the restaurant were tourists who appeared to be brought here by their Swedish business partners and friends. Would strongly... More

Here at Tradition we offer you food from the Swedish cuisine as it was originally intended: Featured, uncomplicated high quality ingredients that are prepared with knowledge and care.

The three restaurants all have their own unique menus selected by season and what we think is best at the time in that particular district.

Staying in Vasastan

Neighbourhood Profile
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
