I loved this place, we found it by chance hidden between building, just around the corner from one of main squares. I had meatballs and my husband had a big slice of pie with vegetables, everything was so delicious!

This was recommended by a few people. We enjoyed our meal here but were a bit shocked by the prices. To be honest, all of the prices in stockholm were like this, but it was our first meal here. I have food allergies (wheat and cow's milk) and they were so helpful in accommodating them. They even found me a... More

We had lunch here; of course at a tourist price. Good food, friendly staff. A nice place in the Old Town.

Don't tell anyone about this place! It's got this big chestnut tree outside which gives it its name, but unfortunately it was raining when we found it so we ate inside. Very inviting, very pleasant, full of moms and babies and despite its location in Gamla Stan, it's clearly off the beaten tourist path for some reason. Luckily no one... More

What a wonderful place for lunch, simple chose of dishes, including Cauliflower Soup and great deserts. The local Swedish Beer, was superb. A classical pianist played under the tree which made the afternoon perfect. A good place for lunch when visiting the Royal Palace or the Nobel Museum

Our party of five girlfriends had just arrived in Stockholm and were wandering around looking for a nice spot when we found this gem. Our first taste of "traditional Swedish food." I had potato pancakes and one friend had Swedish meatballs. They were well prepared and were delicious! And we shared a dessert that was a sponge cake with lemon... More

Spotted in passing as we wandered through Gamla Stan, this restaurant is under the radar of most guide sites and all the better for that. So impressed by the food, and by attention to service (thank you Rebecca!) were we that we we returned for a second evening dinner. Cool and shady outside tables but try for an indoor table... More

Gamla Stan is an expensive area but this place that is not located in a very busy road offers good food for reasonable prices. The atmosphere and the service were very good. It took quiet a long time for the main dishes, even though at that time the restaurant was not very busy. For around 65 euros we had 2... More

In the old town of Stockholm there are many, many places to eat. Most of them for a quick bite and most of them just for tourists who never come back. This is the exception, a bit off the beaten track you'll find this place under/behind the big tree. This place is perfect for breakfast or lunch, not too much... More
