Ate lunch here last Saturday afternoon. What a disaster. A costly disaster I might add. The food was the worst I've ever had anywhwere. I had a steak sandwich which was so destroyed with salt in the sauce that I almost gagged on it. My son ordered a burger with cheese and stressed to waitress NO salad or vegetables and... More

Very nice Irish Pub in Stockholm, situated in Gamla Stan (Old Town). It's lying on a calmer street, and the interior is giving you that real pub-feeling. I have been here twice, and I really liked the visit both times. The food is really very good, and the staff is friendly. It's really worh a visit!

Was in Stockholm on business during the early stages of the World Cup, and my Irish colleague recommended The Liffey for both atmosphere and food. Happy to report he was right. The atmosphere was great for a World Cup match, with the place filling up starting around 5 minutes prior to kickoff. The beer selection is decent, featuring Scandinavian and... More

Excellent food and good service in the old part of Stockholm, worth a visit. Cost about £60 for 2 courses each and 1 alcoholic drink each.

Me and my boyfriend called into this pub to watch a football match while we were away. It's really nice pub, lovely interior, more than one toilet which I was pleased to see and another quieter bar downstairs. However how it can call itself an Irish Bar I have no idea. The furniture was dark and square exactly like what... More

We at here Saturday with some friends. The Liffey was not taking reservations due to a hockey tourney, but when I called and explained to them it was a birthday, they said they would try their best to help us out. Well, they did a wonderful job. The food was fantastic-we had 2 vegetarians in our group and the server... More

By using the site bookatable.com we made a reservation to have diner here. We got the confirmation mail from bookatable so everything looked fine. However, when we arrived at the pub the waitress didn't receive the booking. Instead she was rather insulting and blamed us basically that we made the booking online. No excuse or what so ever. Terrible service!
