Well prepared food in nice environments

A nice and friendly atmosphere as well as good food. Appetizer consisting of ham and main course with large piece of delicious salmon is recommended.

Great place, great staff and a really good atmosphere. We had lunch and the food(toast, mushroom soup and Swedish meatballs) was excellent. Thumbs up!

cosy spot if you can manage a table outside. the food was ok, but not overwhelming. a good spot to escape the hustle of the other parts of gamla stan.

Lovely place away from crowded Old Town streets but still in Ould Town and you can enjoy from a great atmosphere, reasonably priced cakes and great vine. There seemed to be also dining possibility but we only enjoyed some drinks there.

On a short trip to Stockholm, my friend and I only had one opportunity to go out for a meal, so wanted somewhere traditional, and not too far from our hotel in Gamla Stan. We'd seen Under Kastanjen while exploring during the day, so thought we'd have a look in the evening. We were guided to a table by the... More

This is such a charming restaurant, the food is top drawer and I would have given it a five star review but....On the night I visited they were clearly struggling with staff shortages. The service was very slow and some of our food wasnt complete - my chips were missing! On the whole though - a really nice resturant.

Just an enchanting spot for breakfast or a cup of coffee. Near the Urban Hostel Gamla Stan and a great alternative to their very mediocre fare in the morning. Also lots of good gluten free options!

We followed the recommendation of Swedish friends and had a late lunch here while exploring Gamla Stan. It is deservedly popular so you need a bit of luck to have a table outside. (We began inside and later hustled to a vacant table outside.) We enjoyed our food and lingered an hour at least. Perfect for a Fika or meal!

My wife and I and a friend stopped recently when exploring old town. The cafe is very attractive and the ambience drew us in. We each had their shrimp salads and a glass of wine. The salads were large with fresh ingredients and a huge pile of wonderful shrimp. The perfect light lunch in a bright, airy cafe with friendly... More

We had Swedish meatballs and Salmon dinners. The Swedish meatballs were very good, but I found the salmon a surprise with each bite. The fish was cooked perfectly, no small thing, but the sauce and the other components of the meal each were wonderful. There was a great dill sauce for the fish. The side dish included pickled Napa cabbage--with... More
