Operabaren Traditional Swedish Meatballs in Stockholm

Step inside Operabaren, and step back in time. The venue with hand-carved wood panels and stained glass ceiling has a timeless charm, and the menu of Swedish classics is the same as when they opened over a hundred years ago. Operabaren is the casual next-door neighbor to the fine dining restaurant Operakällaren. If you’re looking for classic Swedish meatballs with all the fixin’s, this is your place – but be sure to also try the shrimp salad and the toast with bleak roe.
