“Exciting menu”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

A place for friends and colleagues, the interior very "old town goes arty". I like the interior, the food, the menu with very tempting dishes, but the triple-fried french fries was too fatty and oily. The venue smells of truffle, not the chocolate one, but the oil. And it seems the truffle was a favorite in the kitchen, because it was sneaked in here and there. Over all I liked this place and it is so nice to be back in the Old town, though the staff needs to smile and be more engaged.

“I love this place”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Nice setting, helpful and polite staff, good selection of beer and amazing food. I especially recommend the burger they serve on sundays, it's one of the best burgers I've ever had. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it's a little bit too expensive.

“Sleeping on their gloria”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

I had read good reviews about this restaurant and decided to go ther for a spontaneous dinner with a friend visiting out of town. The service was good, they know their wines. We ordered the "famous" hamburguer and it was good, goood meat and well constructed hamburguer BUT the fries.. I would be ashamed to serve those fries even in the worst of places. In a very swedish way we did not complanthen, I didn't want to shame my friend, but we should have said something, it is not a cheap place, they have one of the best chefs in Stockholm, they should pay atention to those details.
