We dropped in early one Saturday night and were met by lovely staff. It did fill up pretty quick so I would recommend booking a table. The food was very good. The starters were big, the main lovely and the house wine good too. The atmosphere is informal and warm. We would go back.

Grill Ruby wasn't completely full so we tried our luck and were very happy in the end. Service was exceptionally efficient and friendly. I had the ribeye steak which was cooked to my... More

If in old town, this one of the best, non tourist trap, premise. This is however a place for us addicted to grillad food (there's also a Bistro Ruby nextdoor). Not cheap but quality.

Very nice grill restaurant. I was in Stockholm for ten days and I definitely had the best meat here. Cosy atmosphere as well, and good and friendly service. Strange selection of music that is playing sometimes; wasn't expecting the Spice Girls to suddenly start blasting through the stereo :) Wine was good but a bit overpriced - even for Swedish... More

Ruby Grill is a pleasant place, nicely located in Old Town which is the most exciting part of Stockholm. They serve all kinds of foods, from traditional Swedish food like isterband to classic New York deli food like tuna melt. But they usually close down in the winter which is too bad...

In the old town the frame is perfect from this restaurant. Tasty plates and in quantity! Perfectly cooked meat. Made this evening even greater! Truly recommend it. Honestly a... More

Went to grill ruby for New Year's Eve and we were extremely disappointed. Two of us ordered the same dish but only one of us received vegetables on the side and a big difference in the size of portions! Meat was dry. Service was terrible, water was just left on the table and not served, when we asked if we... More

My chicken was just delicious and James really enjoyed his steak. Staff very helpful and friendly and a lively atmosphere. Keep an eye out for Winston the adorable pup who sleeps by the side of the bar ever now and then checking that everything is running smoothly!! A lovely night out, recommended!

Went in for a Sunday brunch and was very pleasantly surprised. My girlfriend had the brunch plate and sat there with a very very satisfied smile (after trying the scrambled eggs she asked if it'd be ok to kiss the chef :) ). I had the Vegetarian burger and it was easily the best burger I'd had since quitting meat.... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
