The Old Man and the Sea, what a beautiful name! I had dinner there twice and both with the same dish, pasta with scallops. Such a delight! Food and wine is good. The place is nice though it might get quite warm in the corner,...More

Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost
looks too good to be true. It has the winning
combination of a central location, tranquility, and
beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and
eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s

tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s
