Quiet atmosphere, nobody was stressed but still our food was served quickly. Salad was served together with the main course, I would have expected it as a starter. Meals were very tasty, we really enjoyed it. We would go there again.

Terrible food and terrible service. The waiters were not helpful when we asked for gluten free and vegetarian food. The food tasted like it had been pre-made the day before or in the morning and then heated just before served. It was brown and bland and we could not finish it. Not even the beetroots were fresh but tasted like... More

On a quiet corner in Sodermalm, this restaurant offers tasty Greek dishes. We especially enjoyed the baklava, with delicious vanilla ice cream. The seafood and lamb were both excellent.

Nice restaurant with really friendly service from all waiter staff. Generous with bread and home made bread spread. Cold water on the table automatically. The problem comes when trying the food. Something must be wrong in the kitchen. Ordered beans in tomato sauce for starter. not seasoned, and some of the beans very hard. I had Bifteki Gemisto for main... More

I was not really impressed with the food of this restaurant. Nothing bad, just a bit too oily and not especially great quality. It was a busy Saturday but the service took forever and it felt like the waiter had almost forgotten us. On the pricey side for what you get. You can find better greek restaurant and not too...

Staying in SoFo & Medborgarplatsen

Neighborhood Profile
SoFo & Medborgarplatsen
Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods transformed from a rather quiet residential area into the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts. Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) & Medborgarplatsen managed to hold on to their residential charm and quietness and became one of the most sought-after places to live among young people in Stockholm. This neighborhood is also home to Sweden’s highest student hall, Skrapan, which used to be the head office of the tax authorities and now combines a mix of student hall and shopping mall with a bar on top.
