One of stockholms best steakhouses, suffers from capacity problems?

I was invited with my colleague to this restaurant. First time visit and a really positive experience. Exceeded all the expectations. Nice bar and restaurant in the back of the area. We decided to order several appetizers and share them since everything sounded so delicious. Proved to be a great idea. I would highly recommend sotad kalv (veal), gratinerade havskräftor... More

Great vibe (can be quite noisy on Fri nights). Great simple menu. High quality ingredients and way of cooking. Restaurant can often give good recommendations. A place good for celebrations, with some signature dishes with portion good to share with a few friends.

Sometimes I wonder how much better quality and service you get when you just top up the price level 20%. In Stureplan neighborhood you get a LOT of quality if you do that and VE is an excellent example. Great to have lunch and enjoy a traditional Swedish dishes, mainly meat;) Always nice service!

I was there with my friends (they are from Stockholm) and i was really impressed: nice place where you can have dinner or a drink (it's a steak house, but at 11 it turns into a disco-pub) I just had some drinks so i can't judge the food but, it was really crowded so i think it's a good place.

Vassa Eggen was chose as a place close to our hotel to get something to eat fast upon arrival in Stockholm. We expected a steak-house but found ourselves enjoying not only superior steak but also wonderfully prepared sea.bass along with a number of innovative and very tasty starters. This place has a laid-back atmosphere and very good service, too.

i stayed next door to this place for a few weeks and found myself there often. The food is good and the bar has a great stock. I enjoyed the environment mostly. It does get a bit loud on weekend nights.

Have been to this restaurant several times, and the meat is always good. Had a lunch this time, and the plank steak was just perfect, juicy and tasty, with nice sauces and mashed potato. A somewhat expensive lunch, but worth it. Quick service as well. Only negative was that we had to work hard to get the waiter´s attention to... More
