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

Serves excellent but pricy meat. Staff is equally skilled and the bar is often full. Always a good place to visit

The food here was lovely, especially the steaks. However, it felt a little overpriced for what there was. Also, as another commenter has stated, the chips were excessively salty. It was very dark, in an attempt to be 'atmospheric,' which meant my elderly grandfather couldn't see his food to eat it, so perhaps not ideal for older people. However, besides... More
