“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We sat ouside and ordered Swedish meatballs and Grav Lax. Both dishes were excellent and affordable. It is on a walk street so you get to people watch. The horse drawn carriage goes by regularly as well.

“Nice stop for lunch - a little off the main street in Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We stopped into Samborombon for lunch one afternoon while walking through the Old Town of Stockholm. Most of the restaurants on the main road were busy, and also very expensive. Samborombon was a nice alternative, and only one street away from the greatest crush of traffic. It was quiet, and we were offered a choice between indoor and outdoor seating.

For lunch, I enjoyed a dish of "pickled salmon" and potatoes. Little did I know that "picked salmon" in Sweden was really nothing more than what we call "lox" in America, but it was still pretty good, as were the potatoes. We had to ask for bread, but it was brought to the table and was still free of charge.

Our service was very good in this restaurant, and, also, it was inexpensive compared to many of the other places. I wold gladly return!

“warm, personal attention and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This gem of a restaurant deserves a higher ranking here; its food was superb (honestly, the best, most authentic Swedish meatballs EVER), and the staff was warm, personal, and patient with my non-existent Swedish (they spoke excellent English). One hint, though: ask if "salmon" means grilled or raw, as they serve either.

“Fantastic Little Restaurant on Gamla Stan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident, wishing to have dinner on Gamla Stan but not wanting to spend a fortune. The restaurant is tiny, only one room with about ten tables, but our dinners were the kind you remember for years. A friend had steak and I had Swedish meatballs. Great food, great atmosphere, great wine. Cuisine is Argentinean-Swedish and just wonderful. Price is very reasonable for Stockholm and incredible for Gamla Stan.
