The outdoor terrace was not available and so we sat at the bar rather like you do in a Suchi restaurant. The meatballs (a Swedish speciality) and mash were really tasty and the service was very good. Some of our party went back later in the week and enjoyed it again. It's fun, atmospheric but the food is good, not... More

The place was operating with a restricted holiday menu (no specials), but tucked away in a quiet side street behind the opera building opposite a pretty church, this was a great lunch spot outside on a hot August day. The starters were particularly good, notably the crayfish toast, and the mixed plate of pickled herrings. Excellent bread too! But the... More

I has been here 20 years ago--and had fond memories of the place--so I decided to give it another try. No disappointment! The place is simple and it's probably best in summertime when you can sit outside at their small terrace. Servide and food are very good. I had an elegant, very abundant shrimp salad for lunch with super fresh... More

I was searching for a place in the centre of Stockholm to try out the meatballs. Having been a connoisseur of the IKEA meatballs for many years, I wanted to see what they really should be like in their homeland. Having done some searching, many locations were recommended, but all just a bit to far away for my short visit.... More

We seated on the outdoor as the weather was very nice. The waiting staff was efficient and responsive. We ordered 2 main dishes, the meatball and the tartar steak. Nothing to say about the food, the meatballs comes with berries and the tartare with butter, nice Swedish food. We shared an almond cake which was very nice.

saturday lunch: we were not welcomed or shown to a table in a proper manner. picking up orders took too long: we were then informed why: the computer system had failed and we would have to pay cash: ok, no problem. But the waitress was so nervous and stressed by this (?), that it affected the service in an negative... More

This is the lightest version of the more important restaurant of the Opera. A good choice for a pretheatre dinner with typical swedish cuisine . Meatballs are a must.

We went here on a recommendation from a friend, and it lived up to its hype!! The meatballs were delicious and far better than any Swedish IKEA meatballs you've had! The potato purée served with lingonberry preserve is also rather scrummy!! Although on the pricey side essentially for what it is, it is worth spending the £££ if you are... More

We wanted to try Swedish food, and looked up good restaurants in the area to have it, and found this gem located in the Opera house. Very informal as it's basically a cafe with bar seating, it felt very informal but nice. We started with the herring plate which had herring prepared in a variety of different ways. I really... More

The food was great, but maybe a little bit too pricy. It was packed on a Friday evening, as it offers only 30 seats. They do not have normal tables, just an oversized bar. Quite nice.
