My friend and I had this restaurant recommended as a great place for steaks and drinks. It's a very popular place, hipster one could say. However, the food in the restaurant was completely over-priced. We waited 30 minutes for a steak. When we got it, they had chopped it up and only served on one plate. And I can tell... More

Went to Vassa Eggen with a few friends. The restaurant is ok, even though we didn't get a very good table. Food was quite good, but it took extremely long to get. A bit pricey as well.

WOW, it was definitely a super stylish place but the people who work there weren't warm at all. I waited for my rib eye for an hour.....and the duck was quite strange and puny. Make sure you order lots of appetizers if you order the steak. Lobster was awesome tho also the soft shell crab.

A good restaurant and bar to have a good steak. But be aware, it is not a cheap place. Pros: 1- Good and tasty food 2- Cousy environment 3- Good service (really nice people) 4- Perfect location (central Stockholm; easy accessible by public transport) Cons: 1- Pricey (small portions with regard to the price), but yo won't leave hungry!

I had Wagu tartar and the moules frites. Wagu was amazing. Mussels also great but a little on the small side. Great Manhattan from the bar and very nice wine suggestion with the mussels. I loved this joint and will bring a crowd from the office next time.

But weird logistics. We were a party of over 23 persons, having softshellcrab, Wagyu entrecote and the dessert. The food was perfect. But why these strange things ? The fries are for 2 persons. The Wagyu plate is for three. Im not sure how many the salad was for. I think the dessert was one per person. I give you... More

Have been here several times -an excellent choice when going out with friends. Last time, we showed up on a Saturday night without any reservation. The place were packed, but they managed to get us a table in the kitchen! Stunning experience!

Super steakhouse in Centre of City. Steaks are big, so dial back on starters. Good bar out front too. Super quality food. Good choice of sides. Two mains, two glasses of wine and one coffee ere some USD 100
