4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

I like to take visitors there to try swedish cuisine. The food and service are good and the price affordable.

“Good atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

The familiar swedish meatballs here were enormous and not particularly special but the setting seemed authentically swedish and the atmosphere and service were both good. My mixed pickled starter was lovely but two friends had a similar starter - all anchovy i think -which disappointed them. Standard Stockholm prices i:e: costly!

“Good good, but shamefull service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

We had a very nice evening in the Pelikan. But there should have been some alarm bells ringing with out too friendly italian waiter. Be aware of the question: do you want some snapps? They make it look like its for free. But when you want to pay the bill, they charge you around 30 euro's!!!!!! After a discussion with out friendly italian waiter, he said that he understood and felt really oncomfortabel with the situation. But he could not arrange to give us our money back. After spoken 2 other waiters they said they would call us the next morning. Because there was no one present to give us our money back. Quess what.... They never called...

“Great meatballs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Really easy to book in online even a few hours before you want to go. The meatballs were really tasty and definitely a million times better than any I've had before. Just watch out for the Aquavit; the price on the menu is by the centilitre so it cost a lot more than we expected. Still this is a great place for traditional Swedish food in a lovely setting.

“Traditional Swedish Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

This was a choice by our local Swedish friends. Typical Swedish meal they told us. Very good service. They provided menus in both English and Swedish and were fluent in both languages making everyone at ease. They were quite full and we did need a reservation to get seated at 8:30pm.

I had the Reindeer, my husband had the Swedish Steak and our Swedish friends had the Pork Knuckle with three mustards and our Vegan friend had the Risato. All were ample portions not huge and very tasty.

Would eat here again if in Sweden.
