“Swedish Traditional Food back in time”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Went here New Years Day 2014... Great start to the year w very professional service, surprisingly good food... We wanted traditional Swedish food I think we got it! Had the winter salad, a warm salad that was so good w grilled carrots, fresh beets, green beans so good. I had the meatballs in a cream sauce :) the boiled pork knuckle is good too but drink lots of water bc very salty! Out of the way in a not so glamorous place in town, new urban biz area. Take a cab and go and leave. Overall great experience tho!

“Best Place to Get a True Taste of Swedish Food and Ambience”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The food was plentiful, yummy and truly representative of Swedish cuisine. This is a very busy , popular restaurant with locals- plan accordingly. The actual building is an architectural beauty inside. Staff were superb and our waitress even refused the tip from our large group we left as she stated it was excessive and recommended a smaller amount. I have never encountered such honesty anywhere!

“Traditional Swedish Cuisine”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The food was amazing and very reasonably priced for what you received. We went with a group of 7 and had a minor wait. The wait staff was very good at keeping on top of the time and very personalible. I tried the roasted elk that was served cold, which I thought was a risk, but paid off considerably. Other people in the group tried the swedish meatballs and the ribs. All the meals were excellent.

“Good Swedish "husmanskost"”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Pelikan serves great "husmanskost" with a little twist. A decent beer menu as well. Non-smoking place these days, which is great. It used to be like the smog in Beijing :-). I would recommend the place for a "let's go for a good meal", but not for a fancy occasion.

“Very good”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

I spent my first night in Stockholm having dinner here, and I have to say that the place was beautiful from the moment I walked in. The waiter that served us was very polite and never got in the way, arriving at the right timing without being pushy, nor absolutely impossible to find.
We ordered one main course each, and we were starving; having the pork knuckle served was enough to kill my hunger until lunch the next day; the whole meal was delicious.
It wasn't incredibly expensive, but for a student, having to spend 270 SEK on a single course meal, it's not ideal; but given the quality and the place, probably it was worth it.
