It’s just across the street from the entrance to the cathedral. Great lunch place with outstanding goulash soup and bread. Downstairs is a cellar room from the 1500s that they still use for dining. Ask to eat downstairs for more atmosphere. Rest of menu looked...More

This place had some nice coffee but we never got around to trying the meatballs. It was a nice place to sit down and also they had great toilets. We sat outside which was great.

Located in Gamla Stan, their meatballs are awesome. Staff is hospitable. They don't accept cards though.

Stoped in for lunch out of convenience, but had a superb meal that exceeded my expectations. Cozy atmosphere. Loved the fried herring, and the potatoes were just excellent.

Very interesting place. The meatballs were the hit. Portions were large. Waitstaff was good considering our group of 40. Ate in the basement, more like a castle. Adds to the ambiance. If it too cold outside to eat ask for downstairs, or go there anyway.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
