Before I moved to Gamla stan last year in November, I accidentally booked a table at this restaurant thinking it was another restaurant with a similar name in the area. The service was under all critic, the food was terrible (like they had bought it from some cheap supermarket and just tossed it to a plate). The furnishing is outdated... More

Not worth it!!! A tourist trap. Food was ok. We got the special 3 course meal for 250kr then drinks. The bill was the most I've ever spent on a very mediocre dinner. Food was a little more than grilled.... Burnt

My husband and I were starving by 3:30pm aftera Hop-on Hop-off boat tour. We decided to walk to Gamla Stan since there's a lot of restaurants to choose from. We saw a lot of people sitting outside dining at Jarntorgspumpen and decided that the food must be good. I ordered a Caesar Salad with Tiger Prawns or Scampi. My husband... More

They just lie. They promise to do kids portions and then just simply charge full price. Everything else is also true about overcharging for water, bread etc. as other reviews have already mentioned. The fact most things are not written down on the menu means you should be worried from the start. I wish I had read the reviews before... More

RUN FAR AWAY!!! RIP OFF Artists! You will be asked if you want bread and water with your meal...but they will make it seem like it's free yet charge 69 krs X 2 bread baskets and 49krs for a tiny bottle of refilled tap water. Yes this is normally complimentary just like cutlery use, salt and pepper, etc. My gut... More

As other reviews have said, the Man on the front is the main problem, and I would give 0 stars if possible. The Man took our order. As there was no free tap water we ordered one bottle of water (it was not even bottled mineral water but tap water in a refillable bottle for £4.50!) and two of the... More

It's a grilled meat restaurant which is expensive and not really tasty... Tap water is expensive ! The service is not included in the bill and it's well underlined on the ticket ! I don't recommend this restaurant.

I would post 0 stars if it was possible. When we got here the guy at the front seemed nice. I ordered over priced fish and chips and soup the chef supposedly specially made for my daughter. When we got the bill we were charged 95K for 2 glasses of TAP WATER we didn't order that he claimed was "specially... More

What everyone else already said it´s true. I wish i read the reviews. My boyfriend ordered a pizza and he asked if he can add tuna. For that they charged him 150kr on top of the price, without warning him. The waiter even admitted this is what they do. They take advantage of the tourists. We paid because we were... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch during a day trip to Stockholm. Time was limited so we didn't shop around - the location of this place was nice and the staff seemed welcoming enough so we gave it a go. Mistake! Two small portions of an average pasta dish and two non-alcoholic drinks gave us a bill of £48.... 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.
