Very pleasant atmosphere in a small square under a big Chestnut tree and very good quality food (soups, meat balls, salads). I probably wouldn't recommend it for full course lunch or dinner, but a must for a small snack or desert in a great atmospheric...More

We ate dinner at Under the Chestnut Tree in the old section of Stockholm, Gamla Stan. There is a big, beautiful chestnut tree outside, and the setting is lovely. Both indoor and outdoor seating. The interior is light and it was quiet on the night...More

Good place for lunch in the old town, especially if you want typical Swedish food - "dish of the day" is good value and high quality. In a quiet square with lots of outdoor seating and airy inside seating, a relief to get away from...More

Our tour guide recommended this restaurant if we wanted to try great authentic Swedish meatballs. So, we did. We ate outside and shared a few plates midday. Waitstaff was very good and meatballs did not disappoint.

A very nice restaurant a little off the main beat in Gamla Stan. Good food, usual prices, good service, although "you'll find cutlery around the corner" might have been a nice indication.... When possible, sit outside, because inside it's hot...

A small cafe located in the old town of Stockholm. They have good local homemade food, and is a great place to stop for lunch while sightseeing. I ate the potate pancakes and i loved it. Recommended!!

We enjoyed "Under the Chestnut Tree" so much we went back for a second time. The Salmon plate and the Swedish meatballs were each delicious. Service was excellent. Friendly staff. Three of us highly recommend this restaurant.

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)
