We went in and someone took our coat. The man at the door was rude. We were seated quickly at a very small table that would have been extremely difficult for anyone who wasn't petite to sit in. The sangria was descent tasting but was not made in house so I would not get it again. We had four dishes that were not expensive by swedish standards. The tapas were average at best. The bread was stale. The service was friendly and good. What did me in was they charged us 20 sek for our coats upon leaving. They mad it seem like we hade to give them our coats when we walked in so we didnt know any better.

I was there whith my family. The food was really dissapointing. Very uneven, some dishes were quite good, whilst others were average, a few where really bad. All in all not good, too bad. Will not go there again. Quite pricy aswell.

Please please read before you go to this Tapas bar, this is the worst experience we have had at a restaurant let alone a Tapas bar
Some thing bizarre happens at this Tapas bar, as you go in the man at the door rudely stops you causing a huge amount of people to stand in the door way, those going in those going out and those he is trying to get coats off of!
Food - this is the worst tapas ever, there is no taste, the food comes too quickly, paella is simply quickly made rice with anything they can throw in
The cheese tastes like butter, there was no dish of 7 we would re order
The service starts by you having to tick boxes for the tapas you want, it is naff, the staff have to put the tapas on top of each other as they can't find room on the table
The bizarre thing? it is packed, either I am missing something or Swedish people have a low tolerance level when it comes to this type of food!!!!

Please do no go here, tacky tacky tacky, and awful food

Saturday afternoon, party of 4, we sat in one of the outside tables in their local at Schelegatan # 3. We ordered a paella and various tapas like tortilla de patatas, lomo, gambas al ajillo, patatas bravas.... The waitress was friendly but the food was TERRIBLE. Everything was extremely dry (overcooked or re-heated?). The chicken was so hard that knives didn't help. The tortillas had rubber consistence, and the paella was dry and didn't taste like paella at all. Really bad food! We had to leave the place and go somewhere else to eat. This restaurant was a big disappointment. Very cheap though for Stockholm standards but well, I believe this is the typical case of "you get for what you pay for"

I went to the Mamas & Tapas at Kungsholmen with a group of friends and had a great time. It was very crowded as it was a Saturday night and we did not have a reservation. The food was good and the house wine too, we had plenty of both ;)
I am sure you can have better tapas in Stockholm, but this place is pretty decent.
