Fodor's Expert Review Den Gyldene Freden
$$$ Gamla Stan and Skeppsholmen Scandinavian
Sweden's most famous old tavern has been open for business since 1722. The haunt of bards and barristers, artists, and advertising executives, Freden could probably serve sawdust and still be popular, but the food and staff are worthy of the restaurant's hallowed reputation. The cuisine has a Swedish orientation, but Continental influences spice up the menu.
