We found this place by pure luck on the internet and couldn't have been happier with our choice for the first evening in Stockholm. I had the fried herring with browned butter and potato pure and a salad and it was unique and delicious. My...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
