We went to the summer terrace, the less fancy part of the restaurant opened only during the summer. The menu offers some BBQ dishes, and the side dish (potatoes, corn cobs etc.) is ordered separately. I ordered a cheeseburger which was good but very small. The potato wedges I took were a dwarfish portion, a couple of mini potatoes. I had to ask the waiter for more and when he brought it he said "That's on us!". Well thank you but I don't think potatoes are something you should spare. Costs nothing and your guests would have been much happier if they left the restaurant with a full stomach... All and all, nice location, reasonable food, but small portions and a relatively high price make a bad value for money equation. I will come back for a drink, but will eat somewhere else.

Good food, excellent service. Perfect to celebrate but quite expensive. They also have nice brunch. And a knowledge of intolerants such as celiakia.

This is THE place to eat traditional swedish christmas buffét. The diversity of herring, ham, sausages, patés, salmon, cheese etc is great. I have gone to Långbro five years in a row, and it keeps making me happy! Also great "mumma" (swedish mixture of porter, beer and soda) and home made schnaps. This is the best Christmas buffét in Stockholm!

Långbro värdshus is a restaurant within an old, now abandoned, hospital area. It can be reached from Stockholm city center within 20 minutes, but it's a bit tricky if you don't have a car and have to travel by train, subway or bus.
The surroundings are lovely with a well maintained park and small lakes. In the summer there are seating outside, but we visited on a rainy day in early september, so that was not an option unfortunately.
The interior of the restaurant consists of some rather large rooms that are bright and gives a fresh impression. Unfortunately, the height of the ceiling makes it rather noisy if the place is full, which it was on out visit.
The menu is adjusted according to the season and has a nice array of options. Prices are medium to high. The service is attentive and quick, but a bit "stiff" in my opinion, like they were serving the Nobel dinner. However, this attitude might appeal to others.
The food itself is nice and good value for money. The only thing that could be improved upon is the somewhat sloppy presentation of everything on the plate.
On the surface, everything is just fine at Långbro värdhus and not bad value for money. And I have heard people raving about their brunches.
However there was something about this place that makes me hesitant about going back. Maybe it was the lack of personality and warmth or a slight atmosphere of "assembly line service".

We arrived a standard summer friday and as the outdoor seeting can not be reserved in advance we arrived early. Even though it was 1,5 hour waiting for a table and even though the drinks were top notch it was a long wait. Eventually we got a table and the service here is excellent. We started with a lovely mushroom sandwich and continued with a rather nice crabfish-soup. The wine is reasonably priced and the house-wine is really good. If you are staying in the southern suburbs of Stockholm, this place is the place to go, but if staying in the central parts it is quite a journey. Nice surroundings and pretty good pricing considering the standard of the food I can really recommend this place. Still, the long wait for a table on busy nights and the lack of possiblity to pre-bookings really takes down the rating from 5 to 4.
