Vegetarian Vienna.

A vegetarian restaurant, self service buffet and sometimes with live piano music. Fells a bit like the old world of Vienna. Will close in april 2016.

Been coming here for years and in my opinion its still rocking ! Lots of choices for both vegetarians and meat eaters and stillfull peaceful environment in the nice part of town. Drinks and desserts included as well, so well worth it.

We have come here for several work lunches when we finally had to conclude the sad verdict that a visit is not worthwhile. Food is rather sloppy and tasteless, the interior is rather shabby. It really needs some new stuff and higher quality.

This restaurant serves a very high value buffet lunch. There was an extensive range of choices from three different buffet tables: salads, vegetarian dishes and meat/fish dishes. It was all you can eat from all of these, plus coffee, tea, soda, and ice cream and cake. The food was regularly restocked and fresh when we were there (about 1 pm).... More

This restaurant used to be THE place to be if you were into vegetarian food. I do not know what has happened, but I was quite disappointed with the dinner they promised to include almost everything plus 6 desserts. The food was mediocre at most and there was only one dessert, rhubarb cruble in the middle of August when rhubarbs... More

I don't usually write restaurant reviews but felt compelled as this really was the best vegetarian restaurant I have been too, and I've been to loads around the world. It doesn't look very inviting from the outside, as you have to go up the stairs to the restaurant. They let us look at the food choices before we decided if... More

Not even a vegetarian restaurant! Plus we went for dinner, but all that was available was the lunch leftovers...at 7.00pm! Salty rhubarb crumble - not good. Go to Herman's, which is ten times better.

Ortagdarden is upstairs in Ostermalms Saluhall and it was fun to eat on their balcony overlooking this wonderful indoor market place. The 99KR luncheon buffet was a very good deal with many, many dishes to choose. I especially enjoyed their soup and vegetarian hot dishes.

Clearly displayed on all their signage outside is lunch til 4. We arrived at 3.45pm and they charged us for dinner. "We arrived before 4pm" we told the Asian waiter "Yes we know but I dont care it is dinner rate now" was his reply! Be warned! They think they are law unto themselves Swedish Robbery!

Örtagård is a restaurant situated, if you go out on their balcony, with a view of the incredible inside market of Östermalmstorg with its great atmosphere. The buffe' is varied with a choice for every palate, vegetarians, sushi lovers, meat and fish eaters, hors d'oeuvre, salad bar, free drinks (hot and warm) desserts, cakes and ice cream and much much...

Staying in Ostermalm

Neighborhood Profile
Ostermalm
With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.
