“Feel bad for the chef!!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Like the other reviewers, we stumbled upon this place for an early dinner in Old Town, Stockholm. The only person in the restaurant was the cook who had to run out and try to find the waitress/waiter, who clearly didn't feel like working that day. They also seemed too busy with whatever they were doing (there were only 3 people in the restaurant), to be able to take our order and even clear the table we sat at. So, after about an hour of sitting with dirty glasses and napkins (which remained on the table during our meal) and a couple of reminders about our order, our food came. Naturally, we thought silverware was to follow, but again had to go up to the waiter station to ask if we could get utensils. Normally, we wouldn't have stayed at a place with such horrible service, but the cook was so nice and apologized on their behalf, we felt inclined to stay - even when they were both standing around while he was fixing the lock on the bathroom door. In short, excellent food - horrible service, with a staff that didn't seem to have a clue - or a care in the world.

“Sadly, disappointing”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant, down a little alleyway in old town, on our first night in Stockholm. We thought the restaurant looked quaint, and being slightly off the main drag, might give better value. Disappointingly, our meals were quite mediocre. My husband ordered meatballs but was given a very skimpy portion of small meatballs, unlike the larger ones we experienced several times later during our holiday. We would have liked to have ordered a bottle of white wine but there was only one available, which we weren't familiar with. It was rather risky to order a bottle of unfamiliar wine at Swedish prices, so we ended up sharing a glass (that was a first for us!), finishing our main courses and going to find a better choice elsewhere.

“Nice lunch and good value”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Came across this place whilst looking for lunch - not on the main thoroughfare, just pop down one of the little side streeets of same name. We shared the smorgasbord, then I had the fish casserole and Niall had the schnizel dish. The chef was very pleasant and the waiter was efficient but businesslike. Overall good value and nice for a quick tasty lunch.

“Off the beaten track of Old Town”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Rather smal and very romantic little restaurant in the Old town. Rather difficult to find but when you do it is great! Good food, not too expensive wines and nice staff.

“Not recommended”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

We were a group, and got placed in the cellar at first. It was a smelly, moist and hot air down there, so we went upstairs again. Everyone except one got their food - he had to order again after the rest was almost finished. The servant didnt pay much attention as we wanted more to drink. The people at the table next to ours sat for about 30 minutes, without even getting a chance to order drinks, so they left. Several of the meals was quite bad, at a very high price. We will absolutely not come back.
