You pay the extra because this is right in the heart of the old town. The food, to be fair, was pretty good. Great fish soup and a decent steak. The wine prices are ridiculous - £12 a glass for the cheap stuff. The beer was usual Swedish prices, but not great.

We had lunch here as a celebration for finishing a 4 week camping trip around Scandinavia and found the food to be excellent,the location to be great and the service good but the prices a little on the high side. I understand that Scandinavia has a higher price on than many other places when eating out but when compared to... More

We were just passing by looking for a bite to eat after a long traveling day and was greeted so warmly by the manager. We were looked after better than any place visited previously . They made us want to return again just for the atmosphere and friendly service ( which we did) The food was amazing and reasonably priced.... More

In picking this restaurant, my excuse is I had no service on my phone and was hungry and drawn in by the location, decoration and the fact that they had a rack of lamb on the menu (which I am a sucker for). First I noticed the prices were rather high. Well, frankly, I have never minded getting ripped off... More

I will not even try to go to the details...but... food awful,iwine is expensive and the waiters do not fill the glass as other restaurants do ???, doorman awful, waiter awful, and the smell of the next door ice cream cone factory is just killing all the taste of food and wine. Positive: maybe the nicest interior in Gamla Stan... More

We were on holiday in Stockholm with 2 teenagers and ended up in JT. My mistake was to not have read the trip adviser review before going there. I can confirm that it is quite a tourist trap. Prices are on the high side for what they are offering. Portions are quite small, but I have to admit that the... More

I've have had better microwave lunch from the grocery. Slow service, high priced dishes and small portions a combo that doesn't work for me. Good location does't save the overall experience.

Like most Stockholmers I never dine in Gamla stan (the old town) more than maximum once a year as almost all restaurants are overpriced tourist traps. Made an exception yesterday and went to Restaurant JT by Järntorget square. Don't be fooled by the posh interior or the head waiter who is out on the street chasing guests, just avoid it!... More

We saw that they served pizza, amongst other dishes. We sat down inside, but realized that we wanted to sit outside. Unfortunately, the vaitor told us that we couldn't sit outside if we were to order pizza! So we stayed inside. Our Coca Cola was warm, and the pizza was dull. As soon as a party of 8 came in...

This was our last evening in Stockholm, so we thought we would treat ourselves to a meal 'on the terrace' outside in the old part of town. The prices looked fairly reasonable on the board outside, and the waiter was very jovial. The waiter offered us a 'traditional' Swedish cocktail to start - what turned up was miniscual (and I'm...
