It's a small nice place to be back too, always friendly staff and good service. The public is the more matured.

Lilla puben has Kalmars best selection of beer and a staff that also know their way around the tap. The food is very good although they removed their famed Club sandwich. I can without a doubt say that this is the best place for a beer in town.

As others have mentioned it is on the pedestrian square but I would add that it is a busy place with locals filling it every night. The crowd is friendly and boisterous. The servers are very friendly and efficient. There is no rush to leave. Great for people watching. The food was very good and also the beer selection. Altogether... More

Because of the Foursquare rate we went to this place to have lunch. And it was great the Hamburger (lokal way) was big and just heavenly. Then I looked up the Whiskey list and it was also good, So I did have my Japanies Single Malt ;-) So happy.

In the summer the street is closed for car traffic making this pub a part of the Square "Larmtorget". It is smaller than the other pubs/restaurants nearby but it has what the other ones are missing - atmosphere. The food is really good pub food and the staff are really skilled in recommending "your" beer and of top of that... More

We made this our 'local' during our four night stay in Kalmar, visiting either at lunchtimes or in the evening, in some cases eating, in others just drinking. The beer is the best we found in Sweden for range as well as quality, and is no more expensive than elsewhere. Staff are very friendly, informed and happy to chat. The... More
