Experience Food Classics in a New Way
Welcome to Stortorgskällaren, where we serve classic dishes with a personal touch. Modern and traditional all at once. Everything is prepared with genuine love, and always with the absolute best ingredients. We also focus on organic and locally sourced foods.
A Restaurant With Roots in the Era of John III
Stortorgskällaren is located on the southern side of Stortorget, just a stone’s throw from Storkyrkan (Stockholm Cathedral). Native Stockholmers and tourists from afar have been enjoying the food and pleasant atmosphere here at Stortorgskällaren since 1938. But restaurants and inns have surrounded Stortorget since the 15th century.
In all likelihood, our cellar was the location of the famous Spanish Grape wine cellar in the era of John III. And they say the king could often be seen at these tables, enjoying a jug of wine in the torch-lit glow.
This building is also where Carl Adolph Grevesmuhl ran a furniture store and workshop in the 18th century. The company was so popular that Gustav III himself placed large orders for handcrafted furniture when it was time to furnish the palace. Grevesmuhl also had the cannonball walled in at the corner of Stortorget and Skomakargatan.
When you visit us, you will see literal traces of the old Grevesmuhl in the walls (and in the furniture). We have respectfully interpreted the traditional environment in our interior decor, featuring wood as a central design element. Come and join us, and enjoy a meal or relax with your friends in the pleasant bar.
