Despite that it is in Gamla Stan/Old Town, it is not the typical touristy place. You can sit down and enjoy the homemade food in peace in the informal, old and cosy house. When the sun us out, it's wounderful to sit outside under the big tree.

Under Kastanjen is a hidden gem in Gamla Stan. At this small square you find this neighborhood restaurant with fantastic home cooked Swedish food. The food and service is very good and the prices very reasonable.

Great atmosphere. You can get a coffee, muesli and a sandwich for 65 SEK ( 55 if you are staying in the hostel)

This place looks really nice, and fortunately, the food looks and tastes just as nice as the restaurant looks. We ordered a hamburger and the steamed cod. Both were delicious. Don't miss out on the home made pralines! Also, the staff is very friendly. A little gem in Gamla Stan.

On our first day in Stockholm we went for a walk around Gamla Stan ( the old city) which is truly wonderful. We stopped for coffee at Stortoget, the famous lovely square with the medieval colourful buildings and quaint cafes. Then we continued our stroll in the narrow alleys without having any plans for dinner. Just two blocks away from... More

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
