“OK for lunch if in the area but don't have the nachos”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

A tex mex bar that wouldn’t look out of place in downtown New York. We had the usual starters of nachos which were disappointing. Tortilla chips covered by melted cheese. Separate servings of guacamole and sour cream. (SEK78 = £7,80) Score|: 5/10
Main course, as usual, was chicken fajitas. Not many onions, some peppers, just enough chicken for four small tortillas each.(SEK 158 = £15,80). Score: 7/10.
House wine (0.5L) was fine. (SEK 89 = £8.90)
Service: older woman, rather dragon-looking served but was actually polite and efficient.
Time of visit: Saturday afternoon.

“Awful - this place has gone down hill”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

This is a follow on review from my review of July 2010.
Harry B James did hold very many happy memories for me having dined there many times over the past 8 years or so with both family and friends
However on 27 July 2011 I experienced not only the worst meal ever but was served by arrogant & extremely rude staff. This pub / restaurant once was a jewel in Stockholm's crown - just how a perfect restaurant can now get it so wrong is beyond belief -
Tough so called "Fillet" steak, salad dripping wet from water (having not been dried) and potato wedges (called baked potato for some strange reason) were so sodden in Cooking oil it would probably last the local McDonalds a week to cook their crispy fries in.

I complained about the quality to be told they had a new chef - Maybe this new chef is a relation to a famous Jim Henson creation ?
Please give this place a wide mark it' has become a total rip off with extremely rude staff awful food, poor table lighting and so unlike other most Stockholm restaurants could be so much cleaner.
The local Street vendors "Varm Kov" (Hot Dogs), Fast Foot Outlets: Seven Eleven stores, Mc Donald's or MAX Burgers are far superior to this dump.
I apologise if you have recently visited this dump on the reading my previous review.

Maybe Trip Advisor should make it possible to give minus ratings as a rating of one, is now far too good for this place
