Practical information : Eating out Stockholm
Restaurants in Stockholm often close earlier than restaurants in larger French cities, between 10 and 11 pm. They generally stay open every day of the week, with shorter hours on Sundays, sometimes offering only lunch or dinner. This depends on their level of popularity.
Budget & Tips
Eating out in Stockholm is generally quite expensive, with wine glasses hitting record prices never seen in France. It is thus recommended to know the good addresses, according to the budget of all. In general, count between 160 and 200 SEK for two meals during the day for small budgets. Restaurants often offer dagens lunch formulas, served between 11am and 2pm, which cost between 65 and 200 SEK in the city center. In the evening, on the other hand, things get tougher!
Note that there are very few local shops in Sweden (butchers, bakeries, etc.).
What costs extra
Most meals are accompanied by rye bread or knäckebröd with butter. Most restaurants and cafés also offer unlimited coffee and tea. In hotels, restaurants and cafés, service is included, so there is no need to leave a tip.
The local way
When it comes to Swedish street food, you may be surprised to find hot dog stands every 20 meters. The 7-Eleven grocery stores have typical food at cheap prices, admittedly not of better quality. Otherwise, go to Günters korvar for the best hot dogs in Stockholm!
Smoking is not permitted indoors or on most outdoor patios.
Despite the charm of Gamla Stan, it is not always recommended to eat there, because restaurants take advantage of their location to raise prices unnecessarily. You can find better for less elsewhere! Otherwise, you should trust the few good addresses..
