The food is ok but the service is aweful: really unfriendly waiters during the entire diner, wrong bill but refused to correct, they even openly complained we were not leaving tips! Avoid if you want to have a nice experience of gamla stan!

A cold and windy day I passed Agaton and luckily for me I decided to have a lunch there. Nice atmosphere, friendly waiters. I have eaten pizzas in New York, Milano and many other places and I can definitely recommend Agatons. Thank you all!

Me and a friend stopped here for lunch and are so glad we did, I had beef fillet which was incredible and cooked to perfection and my friend had a pizza that they made into a heart for her! The staff all seemed really happy and they were very welcoming and friendly! Thank you to all at Agaton!

For an Italian restaurant on the happy strip in central Stockholm it is very popular. Large seating and big wine list but limited menu. The food is passable for such hype and the prices are not low. What gets you is the high pressure service which pushes you to have expensive wines, to over order and to charge rapaciously for... More

I went to six places for meatballs and this place had the best meatballs and mashed potatoes I had on my trip to Sweden. I went back for lunch before I went home because they were so good. I am 8 years old.

I was here with my mom and aunt for NYE dinner 2016. We booked our reservation through our hotel's concierge. When we got here for our table, the restaurant was overcrowded that we had to wait outside for 30 minutes under the rain, which was unfortunate. When we got our table, our waiter was really kind and he actually felt... More

Nice atmosphere with a lot of lit candles in this Italian restaurant. We decided at the last minute to have dinner out on Christmas Eve and there are not a lot of Restaurants open in Stockholm on this day. The place was jam-packed with people but we got our table quickly. Because the place was so fully booked we had... More

Delicious food. Free bread and salad at self service area before your main course arrives. Very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Special, more reasonably priced, lunch menu only available in Swedish, but if you ask they are more than happy to translate orally-definitely worthwhile if you are looking to keep costs down. I would thoroughly recommend the vegetarian lasagne, it was... More

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.
