This is a unique cocktail bar with seasonal beverages and side dishes, right on the main square in the old town/Gamla Stan, where Sweden's first pharmacy opened to the public 1575.
They pair up cocktails with a menu consisting of seasonal ingredients and traditional medicinal herbs. I had the barbequed pork together with a flower salad, and a 'wild turkey bourbon'. Taste of heaven! Great staff, great atmosphere. Dont miss this place!

Loved the setting on the outdoor terrace, and the excellent service and top shelf ingredients. Expect corresponding prices.

Visited in early June 2014 with a group of co-workers. While we only sampled the cocktails, it was a great setting and a phenomenal set of alternatives for ingredients. If you have a larger group (over 4) you will likely have to sit inside and miss the great views and atmosphere of the patio but the interior is a cozy, laid back environment. Staff was prompt and helpful, drinks were excellent!

As scientists we were interested in the origin and the theme for this restaurant. It sits in the square in central Stockholm, with some seating outside, some inside and some at the bar. The seating indoors is different with low tables and some pretty tiny chairs....not very well suited for those with a few pounds to lose! We lunched there - they don't serve the cocktails at lunchtime - and the choice, whilst limited proved to be very good. We all had the beetroot dish which was beautifully presented and tasted divine. The service was somewhat haphazard - staff were pleasant but the timing was poor through limited staffing....fine if you are not pressed for time!

This is a place with a different proposal. The menu presents pairings of a drink and a dish. Of course you can order only the drink. But I was tempted one particular combination. That was duck magret with green tomatoes, small purple onion halves filled with pesto and asparagus sticks. The drink was called pennicilium, a mix of whisky, citrus and smoke. I loved it.

The only word of caution is that the food is more for a bite, not to fill a hungry belly. Highly recommended.
