Authentic and delicious Swedish cuisine in a place with a lot of character. The food quality is good and the service is professional and friendly. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in SOFO.

“A beer hall and restaurant of outstanding character”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

You just can't fault the great beer, cosy and traditional atmosphere and decor and the tremendous Swedish fare. This was my third visit: I regard it as a must when in Stockholm and dreamt of the hash main dish before I arrived in Sweden ! The waiting staff are a characterful bunch who have been there for ever but are efficient and polite and run a tight ship. Not a place to rush however so forget it if you want 'fast' food. I just wish I could go every week.

Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

Delicious authentic Swedish home cooking in a lively beer hall atmosphere. Excellent trip of herring. Scrumptious meatballs. Divine cured salmon and good beer. We'll be back.

“Want to feel local in a classic venue with good husmanskost?”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Genuine husmanskost in a classic Stockholm beer house hall. One of two-three left, with many locals blending with you at Södermalm.

“GREAT atmosphere, good swedish comfort food.”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

I got turned on to this gem of a place because my swedish brother.in.law and his old school friends meet at the Pelikan every Thursday for happy hour. I have joined them several times and just love the atmosphere, the service, and the typical swedish fare that is all nicely done. There didn't use to be many PUBs to go to in Stockholm so the few that existed where spacious like the Pelikan. Now Stockholm is overrun with them but there's nothing like this updated classic fo get a feel for the real Stockholm.
