Description: Cultur Bar & Restaurant is a wine and tapas bar inspired by the Mediterranean. We use only the best products and value the matching of food and drinks. Small and mid sized dishes from wine producing countries are served as they are cooked. At Cultur Bar & Restaurant you can have a glass of wine and an appetizer after work, enjoy a simple dinner or linger with a drink in the bar during the later hours.

“Good tapas, nice atmosphere ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We stopped here for dinner having scoured the local area for somewhere that looked a bit more local.

Very nice ambience inside, one end full of sofas and easy seating around a bar area, the other more set up for dining.

Menu is Tapas style with very small dishes all quite expensive but very tasty. My colleagues ordered the mussels and this dish seemed the best value for money. I had vegetarian options, nice mini risotto and tortilla (portion bit on the small side).

Drinks were expensive, compared to London that is, but were about the norm for Stockholm.

Service was quite good although the staff seemed a little stretched at times.

“Great for a drink or lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Lunch is great value here (for Stockholm) and the choice of wines and beers means its a great place just to go for a drink. Located in the old town means that there is plenty to see and do around it.

“Great for an outdoor people watching lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We were hungry after our short walk from the Hotel Rival into Gamla Stan and had cultur recommended by the hotel staff. It was a nice sunny afternoon and we were seated at the last available outside table. Service was prompt, the lunch specials tasty, and the atmosphere pleasing and energetic as there was a constant flow of people in front of us .. It was a great start to our Northern European vacation, as the relaxed and unhurried atmosphere that Europe is known for accelerated our much needed wind down process that paved the way for an outstanding vacation. Would definitely go back there

“Really excellent food - top location , and nice ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Went with friends. Tried a variety of Tapas which were clearly very well made , and tasty.
Good modern - almost hip - ambiance in this Old CIty extremely central location.
Large selection of wines - which you do need to pay for. Expect 800+ SEK for a half decent bottle of Burgundy .
Service is courteous if somewhat impersonal, but certainly efficient.
I would definitely come back,

“Feast Fest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We started by enjoying a drink and people watching on the verandah, then moved inside for dinner in the stylish dining room. Service was friendly and patient with our lively group. The tapas weren't strictly Spanish, but everything was tasty and made with obviously fresh ingredients. My only suggestion would have been for the risottos to be made with vegetable stock (as they otherwise didn't contain meat, the risottos would have been good choices for the vegetarians amongst us). We wolfed down churros with assorted sauces for dessert, accompanied by excellent coffee.
