This institution is, as such, well worth visiting. But if you are looking for contemporary food and interior design, don’t go. Service is ok, the interior is a bit dusty and the traditional food is acceptable. The reason for going is the fact that nothing...More

Drenched from rain, the bartender immediately gave me a napkin to dry my face and hair. The old sofas in the bar are very comfortable, and the food a wonderful collection of lower and upper class favorites. We got some superb food and excellent service.

The decor is truly old world. Possibly one of the most beautify restaurants you will experience. The food matches the decor. Each course was special. We had a wonderful experience

On arrival they greeted us by name! How did they? The dinning room is grand. One of Sweden's pride. We opted for the 5 course chef's menu to which they probably added another 5 course. Each mouthful was delicious, different and memorable. The staff easy...More

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and

There is always at least one vegetarian starter and one vegetarian main course on the à la carte menu. However, I don't believe vegetarian dishes are their forte. If you want to have a full vegetarian tasting menu I'd... More
