The food and service is much less than what to expect based on prices. The presentation of the food is cheap and looks more like food served from a road diner. If you're in Old Town of Stockholm avoid this place.

I was hungry, and stopped here because it seemed the best choice of 3 restaurants at the corners of the intersection. I ordered the reindeer, some mashed potatoes and a Krusovice beer. The beer came, delicious and cold, shortly followed by the main course. I...More

Always solid delivery for good taste and when belly pinched. The service is done with agreeable fellows. Very attractive locations in the old town of Stockholm.

We went there for lunch. The food was fine. The only problem was this very rude waiter. He seemed annoyed with tourists in general.

The food here was good and staff very nice. Was a little empty when I visited, but not a problem. Variety of Swedish food seemed okay. Quality of food was good.

A chance find, & we weren't disappointed, I had Lamb Steak which was cooked to perfection, beautifully tender & super tasty, after paying the equivalent of £18.00 for a pizza the day before the prices seemed reasonable by comparison. Well worth a visit.

We stopped here for lunch after a visit to the Nobel museum. The restaurant was very quiet, with slightly subdued staff, but the food was good and the service was quick (which is all you can really ask when you're day tripping).

I took the pasta with dijon sauce and beef: absolutely delicious pasta dish with some mushrooms and grilled veggies on the side. My other half ordered pork black&white, dish was nice, the bearnaise was slightly cold though. Nice atmosphere. I recommend if you are looking...More

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)

Borgmästar'n is both a Bistro and Bar. The design is a fusion of antique and modern, predominately in reds, golds and browns. So be prepared to meet antique roccoco chandeliers and 19th century candelabras united with walls hung with Hollywood stars proving that these different epochs can coexist in harmony. The menu offers food, drink, ambience and music to suit all tastes and occasions.
