The restaurant is situated in a very nice locality, and the environment inside the restaurant is cozy especially in winters. The staff was friendly. We made a reservation in advance for about 7 people. There was just only one vegetarian option which was pasta (199 SEK), and so I would say that this restaurant is not very vegetarian friendly. Personally... More

I ordered bryggkaffe and wasn't good، so watery. The location and atmosphere is very good. And the toilet didn't have toilet paper, maybe was an accident because the toilet is clean and good.

Under Kastanjen (under the Chestnut tree) restaurant gets its name from the large chestnut tree a few metres out side the restaurant. Located in Gamla Stan at the intersection of three narrow streets, Under Kastanjen is a coffee house, bistro, restaurant all rolled into one. The staff is delightful, the ambiance cozy and comfortable, and the food is delicious! The... More

Went on a Wednesday after lunch in January, around 2pm. It was completely empty. We went as part of a food tour. We had coffee and kanelbullar, which were DELICIOUS. We sat downstairs and it was like a cave, really calm and quiet. Nice bathrooms.

If you are vegetarian and need gluten free products this is the perfect place for you! Unfortunately if you are also vegan (like me) there are eggs in every gluten free product so I couldn't taste them ... But I appreciated that the waitress took some time to check all the ingredients. I had a coffee while reading a book... 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.
