Scenario: Tourists rolling around the Vasa museum in Sweden, needing some place to grab some grub. Walked by here and decided to sit down.

First impression: Looked at the menu, about 170-300 SEK for entree's and beer about 50-80 SEK for a 33cl. Looked around, and it was not very busy, but people were sitting around drinking. Music kept skipping though, and being unplugged as it seemed, or they had a faulty connection, regardless very annoying

Food: We both had the Beef chuck roll (I think thats what it was), but it was a braised bbq beef with roast potatoes and sliced fresh tomato. Beef was quite good but the potatoes and tomatoes were rather elementary.

Overall: Would probably not go back again, nothing was spectacular and I thought it was mainly based as a tourist option, which being one, we fell into!

We made the huge mistake of being a party of 14. As such we did not deserve the same attention as other guests.
We arrived at 7 pm, were, as requested, seated outdoors on this fantastic Nothern lights summers eve.
We placed our orders and started to wait. The sun went down, the infra gas heaters were ignited.
After the entree at 8 we waited some more. And some more. The heaters ran out of gas. We waited. At 9:42 we received the first main course. By then some of us were shivering.
When we informed the staff of this fact and asked for some blankets they told us they had run out of them.
Finally, when demanding to talk to the head waiter, they managed to find new gas flasks and discovered they had a ceiling.
Final verdict: Decent drinks and food, but not worth the price. Go there for the drinks and the setting, but do not arrive hungry...

Haven't tried the food, but the drinks are great. Excellent music. Nice atmosphere. A bit pricy.

Rude and arrogant staff. Thet got our order wrong and then implied we were wrong. The maitre d was the most arrogant petson i have ever encountered. The two waiters were unprofessional and insulting. On top of this we were told we would have to sit in another part of the restaurant because we had a baby in a stroller. But a typical östermalm couple with the pre-requisite poodle were accomodated with no probelm and grovellingly fawned over by the aforementoined maitre d.
