On a quiet and leafy triangle square in Old Town, there is very limited and tight outside seating (we were lucky) and more extensive interior dining areas. Very nice service, with a joke and a smile. The menu is not too extensive but it adds a lighthearted narration or backstory to every item - reads almost as a cook book.... More

Nice location and we had very good service, good selection of wine and beer and attractive menu. BUT we had the very delicious sounding burger and it wasn't, the accompanying chips were worse. I would like to give it another chance as all but the food was promising.

We some times stop by for a fika(coffee and biscuits) at Kastanjen, mainly because they have a variety of gluten free biscuits and cakes. Service is slow and the food is average. Enjoy a coffe and cookies, maybe not the best place for a lunch.

I ate at this restaurant on a busy Friday evening. I was glad that I had booked a table as they were turning people away. POSITIVES - delicious food, beautifully presented. - professional service - it is apparent that they take the food seriously here: the waiter gently suggested that my first choice of drink would not go well with...

“Under Kastanjen” was in a little shaded square we had passed on our way to the oldest street in Gamla Stan (Kopmangatan - “street of the merchants”) to see the bronze St. George & the Dragon statue replicating the oak & elkhorn 15th century version in the Great Church. Even though it was Sunday, they were baking that day. My... More

If you're planning to visit here for the food, just like what we did after seeing the pleasing reviews for a decent restaurant in the old town, let me warn you about my experience. Food wise was great. However, when our table of 7 was leaving the restaurant, I found my bag GONE (well it only consisted of my passport,... More

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.
