We went here for dinner on may 19th. Our waitress was very nice and spoke good English. We ordered tap water, two main courses, a wine and a beer. the food was ok, nothing special and we were given a basket of bread along with the food. we knew it was going to be expensive but were shocked when the bill arrived . we had been charged 450 sek for the tap water and 390 sek for the bread! what was more shocking was their euro exchange rate. they said that the total of 634 sek was the equivalent of €90. By the real exchange rate it should have been about €70! We complained and they took the bread and water off the bill but their exchange rate did not change. Beware of paying the euro price on the bill in this restaurant, going on the days exchange they are charging 15% extra! by the way we didn't pay in euro!

I ate here twice. The first time, reindeer strips (perhaps beef mince, who can tell?) with lingonberries and creamy potato. It was delicious, and the price was right for Gamla Stan, but I was shocked that the two pieces of flat bread and two bread rolls that I didn't ask for, but was given, came to about forty kronor.

The second time, I ate swedish meatballs, again with ubiquitous lingonberries and potato. I ordered a beer. It never came, except on the bill. They didn't argue, and deducted it. They brought a bread basket around. I naively thought that taking one piece of bread would be less expensive, or perhaps even free (as per equivalent restaurants in Kungstradgarden). But one piece was now the same price as the previous four pieces.

Problem is, if you can't speak Swedish, there aren't that many restaurants that serve Swedish food on an English menu. Any of the restaurants in Gamla Stan will be as expensive, and the food, if not the service, is quite good. Be forewarned that you'll add weight to your belly, but lose an arm and a leg, and you'll enjoy the experience more than I did.

We passed the restaurant and although there was a wait for the table, we were given complimentary cocktails whilst we were waiting at the bar - a real bonus when drinks are so expensive! We had two courses which were lovely. Service was a little slow at times but they were very busy. All in all we had a lovely evening at Restaurang JT!

We have been there on April 29th, 2012, after a long walk in Norrmalm and Galma Stan looking for a nice place to have dinner.
We decided to enter because of the price (not that expensive) and the pizza menù. We got 1 pizza with reindeer meat and 2 beers. As italians, we were happily surprised of the good quality of the dough and simplicity of ingredients: good dough, good mozzarella and tomato souce.
We really liked to eat there!
