The food was rather good considering the normal tourist-traps that are located in Gamla Stan. Especially outstanding was the personal that made the experience most enjoyable due to their positive attitude and great attention to details. Worth a visit if your nearby - although very small portion.

First impressions was good and the food (deer for me and lamb for my date) was delicious, but the guy serving us looked really out of place. Seemingly only able to handle one task at a time and blind to anything else, our service was agonizingly slow. We ordered coffee with our desserts, and while the coffee was timely we... More

After a morning of walking around Stockholm, we were in the old section of town. There were several restaurants in this area but the host caught our eye and asked if we were having a good day. Small talk and then we went in. The Falcon Export beer was very good. I ordered a chicken/pasta type dish and my wife... More

We stumbled upon this Italian restaurant in the Gamla Stan section of Stockholm and were very pleased with our find. The staff was friendly and welcoming and we were offered a lovely table in the window where we could enjoy the sight of all the passersby. The atmosphere was lovely and lively. Our appetizer of calamari was delicious; it was... More

For our last lunch we stayed there and we were able to eat in a very pleasant place, with a very good food (with buffet salad included in the lunch plate) and the service was perfect! I really recommend this place.

Very good restaurant at Vaesterlaanggatan in old Town, lots of people passing by outside your window, the staff is very kind, smiley and quick. The plates are delicious, try papardelle with chicken and carbonara. Good wines also. The prices are high, but the quality of food in combination with the location and the staff courtesy are logical.

If I could give a minus score I would. On arriving we were told it would be 5 minutes for a table. Sure enough we had hardly started on our drinks at the bar when we were taken to our table. Almost immediately, our order was taken. An hour later, we still had not had any food. Drew the attention... More

Great location, great food, friendly service, reasonable prices. The waiter helped choose a good and appropriate wine for the meal, but could have been more attentive after the food arrived.

We stopped in here for dinner during a recent trip and we were glad we did. The food was good - particularly the Swedish meatballs (I know an Italian restaurant). The service was great. The staff took pictures of us and offered us advice on what to see while in Stockholm. We really enjoyed our dinner and found the price... More

You can savour Agaton's well prepared meat and fish dishes in a warm, pleasant environment with a Mediterranean atmosphere. The menu also features a host of pasta dishes and excellent pizzas served direct from the oven. Choose from other Italian specialties, such as: zuppa di pomodori e chilli con risoni (tomato and chilli soup with risoni served with parmesan and basil cream); pasta ai frutti di mare (fresh pasta with mussels, scampi, squid, garlic and white wine and tomato sauce); as well as splendid desserts such as mousse di cioccolata con fragole e Grand Marnier (chocolate mousse with strawberries dipped in Grand Marnier).

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
