Stopped here for lunch on a tour of Stockholm. The meatballs were delicious, but the shrimp salad was sooo good! I even tried smoked reindeer heart, which wasn't bad.

Like this place. Tasty food with nice Scandinavian design ambiance. Tried the smoked reindeer with white fish roe and also the smoked reindeer heart (carpaccio) as it's quite unusual to find reindeer on the menu. Quite enjoyed both. The beef brisket was good too.

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)

The three restaurants all have their own unique menus selected by season and what we think is best at the time in that particular district.
