I could easily rate it Very Good instead of Average. The food is not bad, and the interior is rather cool. The problem in my mind is that the restaurant is trying too hard to be different. Some of the dishes are a bit too complicated and expensive. I would also question the wisdom of beer pricing. Who are they targeting? For me this is a place you go once or twice to try and enjoy the setting and the odd menu, but I wouldn't become a regular.

Really nice place if you want pub food with a bit of a twist. Prices are a bit higher than your normal Stockholm pub, but the food is so much better. And there is a great selection of beer and wines. Staff is helpful and knowledgable.

We went there on a Sunday because we were very excited about the burgers. French fries were the best I have ever eaten, trippel fried and really good! Burgers tasted good, but were not cooked through, they weren't pink but red. Very unfortunate. I still think flippin burger has the best burgers in town!

This is one of my all-time memorable meals. The menu is a Swedish take on British pub food. It's quite high end, both with regard to cuisine and price. All of our meals were incredible and the service was perfect. Don't miss out on this gem!
