Since 1897 the restaurant Prinsen has been located at the same address – Mäster Samuelsgatan 4 in central Stockholm. A genuine cultural establishment with a high recognition factor for Stockholmers and tourists from near and far. But Prinsen isn’t just history; it’s a restaurant that’s also very much alive in the present.

Our foundation is our strong tradition, but we also offer surprises. Our goal is that our guests should return often, says Karl Mogren, head chef at the restaurant.
And the goal has been accomplished. Everyone from artists, writers, workers, businesspeople, and travelers have been and are guests since the beginning of the 20th century.
We’re a restaurant that delivers high and consistent quality with fantastic staff. That’s perhaps our greatest strength.
At Prinsen, the food is cooked from scratch with a French feeling, a Swedish mood, and ingredients of the best quality for the season. Meatballs, Biff Rydberg, Wallenbergare and a special warm salad of shrimp and vegetables are examples of classics that never leave Prinsen’s menu. But there are also many other exciting dishes like ‘Prinsens gröna’ with goat cheese from Skärvången, salt-baked beets, carrot puree, fried artichoke, and smoked butter. Or grilled arctic char with pickled cucumber, salmon roe, baked beets, roasted carrot puré, and smoked browned butter.
“We can’t sit back because we have a good reputation. We work hard for a good balance between the classic and the present,” says Karl Mogren.
Prinsen has two dining rooms, and here larger parties have the opportunity to book if you want to celebrate weddings, birthdays or whatever it may be. And the restaurant is open every day of the week, 365 days a year.

Prinsen has about thirty employees plus several extra employees, Staff where the concept of taking good care is high on the agenda or as the well-known restaurant guide White Guide puts it: ‘If you were lucky enough to live around the corner it would be a natural hangout.’
Now you don’t have to live around the corner to visit Prinsen. It’s worth going far for a visit to this classic, historical but also the vibrant establishment.
