I come here every time I am in Stockholm and never regret! This time I took beef stroganoff which was very tasty and perfectly cooked which is not really easy when you cook beef! Super tasty, good service, reasonable prices! Thank you!

An unexpected surprise. Had planned to go to the highly rated Swedish restaurant across the street. When I arrived it was close to full and I didn’t feel like squeezing in during Covid. Still jet lagged I decided to just come here rather than hunt...for a new place. Peaking in it only had two tables full. The door is funky but, especially when combined with the menu, it suggests a casual eatery. Imagine my surprise when the mushroom soup came out and it was some of the best I had ever had. It could have been a full meal on its own, but I went ahead and splurged on the Pelmeni as well. It is simpler but was also delicious. A single pancake for dessert finished it off well. I would highly recommend this hidden gem.More

What a great place in Gamla Stan! Just stay there, don’t go for a restaurant further, you will not find better place inside Gamla Stan-not at this price! Cosy place with very tasty food (I took beetroot soup - borshch - and potato filled dumplings-...vareniri). Also took take away medovik! I really recommend it to all who loves Russian/Ukranian food or just miss really homemade rich food and warm service. Fantastic! Will come back soon!More

We had just arrived and checked in at our hostel and were looking for a reasonably priced lunch. Gamla Stans Lykta was perfect. It has comfortable tables and a 12 euro lunch special with a drink. We had the beef stroganoff and enjoyed a leisurely...lunch, got out of the rain and had a needed rest before we ventured out to see more of the old town. There were many other choices, also at reasonable prices.More

My husband & I had the pleasure of eating at this great quaint Russian restaurant in July. The borscht was simply delicious- even better than my relatives made! My husband enjoyed his tasty Mushroom Soup & I loved the warneki dish. Overall, delicious homemade food...at great prices!More

This restaurant serves traditional Russian food which is very tasty and reasonably priced for Gamla Stan. The service was fast and friendly. Portions are quite large and the food served hot. We enjoyed it.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
