from outside you do not suspect the inside. Very good food, great service , well presented dishes , good atmosphere , mostly foreigners guests, avoid the dessert . Value for money? I really wonder . 800 skr per person .

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

I visited on a busy evening service. I had a rather bland salmon and caviar dish for starter that we kind of ok. For main the half roast chicken on a platter with roasted garlic accompaniment and fries was massively salty and made me have to drink copious amounts of water in the hotel next door. This place charges the... More

The food is great, but something I will always remember is their Mojito. This is one of the best ones I have ever tasted. I could probably drink ten of them at one time.

I went to thos restaurant with some of my colleagues. I must say that the very first impression of this restaurant was not that good. First of all, the very loud music that made a cross table conversation not so easy. Second, the restaurant itself was crowded and has a hipster style interior. However, the food itself was very good.... More

Helpful and friendly service and great food with a varied menu. Good selection of craft beers. This restaurant is a regular haunt for our business entertainment and hence I and my colleagues will definitely return. I understand it's tricky to get a reservation so book early.

We went to Vassa Eggen thinking it would be one of the best steak resturants in Stockholm. After a dinner with so so service, meat that was ok and prices for a top notch resturant i was disappointed. I could get the same at half the price. I also informed the staff that my piece of meat was chewy and... More

We tried this restaurant for our sons 21st birthday! The outside does not let you know how fabulous it is inside! The service was great, excellent waitress. The steak was best ever, one of us had moules and another the fish, everything was amazing. The atmosphere was great, buzzing, busy and good music. As it got later into the evening... More
