“Nice old town restaurant”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Went to Ardbeg Embassy with some colleagues and everyone was happy in general. I think the only thing to criticize was the same problem that applies to many Stockholm restaurants; rather small portions for high prices. That doesn't apply to all dishes though: The meatballs are 185 kr and so is the veggie option which I took, which was good. The reindeer was 345 kr and there the portion appeared too small given the high price. Also dessert portions were small. Beers were good, staff very friendly. I might have given a five had we seen larger portions; cannot find anything else to criticize (although some richer veggie choice is always good, of course - there is no veggie starter but I got the pea soup without the pork bread but without replacement), in fact. Would most likely come back to this nice place.

“Great reindeer!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

A nice place with friendly staff. Normal Stockholm prices (quite expensive). Excellent quality but small portions; you pay quality over quantity. Good wine as well. Overall a delicious meal with good Swedish food!

“Beer + reindeer + whisky”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Picked this place based on the good tripadvisor reviews. Was a little too noisy for a business dinner as this was a pub + restaurant, but we were a large group and managed to talk above the noise. Situated in the old town, the ambience is rustic and quaint

We mostly started with beers and their brewed selection is large.We were hapy with the quality in general

We started with pea soup, and it went very well with the mustard provded, strangely. There were also herring, and my friends liked them

My main of reindeer was good,and not gamey at all. Others had the Rhydberg beef which is usually a tasty safe bet. The meatballs others had were only so-so apparently

the whisky selection is incredibly long, and there was 1 at $500 a glass, gasp. The ones we tried were good, and a nice way to end the evening

Good service, and overall a good choice

“Very good beer”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Having pass this place many times but thought of giving it a try after studying reviews here. If there weren't 2 guests before me, i would have left immediately as is a pub at front and awfully noisy.

Really friendly staff who recommended the game meat balls. However as I guess the meat was too lean, is not as tasty as expected. Highlight of the meal was the waitor helped me to choose a very fruity beer out of their 24 choices. It was too tasty to be true.

Would I come back for the food, hmmm maybe not but definitely for another beer!

“Nice food but very expensive”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

The food of the restaurant is ok, but I found it very expensive. I think you can find better food in nicer restaurants for the same price.
