My wife and I stopped here for a break from shopping. This restaurant is in the middle of the area where the higher priced shops are and is very popular with visitors and locals alike. The maître de was a gentleman and the servers were exceptionally proficient. Do not try to do their jobs, they gave prude and are perfectly... More

I had the Köttbullar and my wife had the Tuna Salad. Both very very good. The service was also nice but with a tiny bit of attitude when we asked if they had ciders. Would go there again!

You can't visit Stockholm and not have Swedish meatballs (and I don't men at Ikea) right? So my son saw this recommendation on Trip Advisor and we decide to go. We walked by just before 11.30 a.m. and it wasn't opened yet so we loitered around and came back around 11.35. Imagine my surprise when I was asked if we... More

We dined outside on a gorgeous sunny day for lunch as a couple with 2 friends. When we arrived we were promptly asked to order as I was unsure if I wanted to eat I was told we had to order everything at once very abruptly to which I did without lunch. However I did try my partners Swedish meatballs... More

This was a great restaurant. The food was excellent and the waiter tried hard to give us recommendations, which turned out to be very good. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

We ate here on a Saturday evening in beautiful weather, so we opted for an outside table. It was a lovely experience - very good food and great service at a reasonable price for Stockholm (given that everything in Stockholm is shockingly expensive). It has typical European "coziness" with smallish tables close to each other, especially outside, but it's comfortable... More

Fully booked so they took a phone booking from our hotel for 6 pm with requirement to leave for next booking at 8 and the reception made us fell second class from the start. Swedish meatballs for me and minced veal for my wife were excellent at acceptable price, other things on menu looked expensive. Wine list massive and dreadfully... More

Ate here on a sunday evening. It was quite busy. The food was good - as other reviewers have said portions quite small for the starters. Only two scallops but the carrot purée was to die for. Pot roast was delicious, as was the creme brûlée. Tables are very, very close together. You can hear your neighbours conversation.

The place is nice. The food was very good and tasty, although the portions are small (the scallops entrance is tiny and there are like 2 scallops - not correct for the price). The waiter was a bit strange and not so Customer orientated. He wasn't bad but definitely not good. Maybe he had had a bad day ? Quite... More
