“Excellent food, outrageous prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Had a dinner with friends/colleagues.

Apetizers ok, meat absolutely fantastic, nothing special about the veggies. Nice desserts (but again not otherwordly), and good wine/beer drinks were had in a very cozy atmosphere (decor is definitely interesting).

Bill came in at 1000SEK a person, $150... It would have been 5 stars at $80-90...

“Night out in the summer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

A good place to go out in Stockholm , particular in the summer. If you go to the club, the music and probably lots of young people hanging out in its terrace, can be a good option to having fun in the city.

“Interesting night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This review is for the F12 Terrassen.

After hearing so much about this wildly popular spot, I finally decided to check it out on my recent trip to Stockholm. These were my observations from the whole experience:

1. There is really something for everyone. If you want to chill and mingle with your friends--go ahead and sit on the infamous steps of the F12 Terrassen and sip on your Solsidan low-carb beer (It was all the rage). Lots of Swedish guys/girls in their casual yet chic clothing.

2. There are two bars--one of each side of the main steps.They're quite "grungy" and packed with people. I initially thought I was going to be under dressed--but thankfully, that wasn't the case. It is fine if you don't bring your Sunday's best. This is not the swankiest terrassen. Still fun. Great spot for people watching.

3. Inside you'll find an actual nightclub where you can get your dance on. It was a lot of fun and as I expected--packed.

4. No one ID-ed us at the door but there is a cover charge of about $30 to get in. What do you expect? It's Stockholm.
*Watch out for the bouncers--they might discriminate towards guys and make you wait a while. They let girls that are dressed nicely quite easily.

“Great food in Central Stockholm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Had the full tasting menu with selected wines. At £250 per head this isn't cheap but the quality of the food and the service was impeccable. Atmosphere is functional rather than romantic and their club next door was mildly annoying later in the evening. Go for the food though.
