I loved this place. It's small and cosy, in a convenient, beautiful spot in Gamla Stan. The food is delicious, especially the lentil soup which was one of the best I've ever had.

Even though I eat pretty much everything, we went to Stockholm with a vegan friend. That kind of limited our options, but we discovered this fantastic restaurant with vegan, vegetarian and, in general, healthier options! They had a lot of interesting staff to try even for the non-vegans! Recommended!

The restaurant was small and cozy. The buffet offered one main vegan course with rice, potatoes and salad bar. Overall, the food was tasty however there was a limited vegan choice among the warm dishes.

We had a half-day layover in Stockholm so decided to go to town, visit the Royal Palace, and have a tasty vegetarian meal. Hermitage is conveniently located in the old town (Gamla Stan) near many attractions and shops. We arrived just after noon and were kindly greated by the proprietor. The buffet consisted of a mix of Middle Eastern foods... More

Like most things in Gamla Stan, Hermitage seems well-hidden, but it's worth seeking out. They had a surprisingly extensive selection of vegan buffet foods – when we visited, everything was vegan except one of the sauces – which were all delicious. It had the homely charm of a small café and was a lovely place to have a long break... More

Not being vegetarians ourselves, my Wife and I honestly chose Hermitage based on tripadvisor reviews and the SEK 130 cost of a buffet meal in Old Town, a very reasonable fee when compared to other establishments. The restaurant is small in size, but we liked this fact and while the buffet service area itself is cramped, a little bit of... More

I am not particularly a vegetarian but I enjoy it more and more. This small place is worth a go if you are looking for an affordable place for lunch in the old city. Great that it could be such a place in the old town! The homemade bread is amazing by the way!

Just mediocre in my opinion. It is in very good location, right in the heart of the old city, and this is why it is so much worshiped and preferred among vegetarians in my humble opinion. Personally, i love all kind of food that is well prepared. I can definetely say this is not the case for this restaurant. First... More

The restaurant is pretty small and the buffé is not perfectly located BUT the food is so good, tasty, well seasoned and fresh that is imposible to give less points. Do not miss anything of the buffé, everything is really tasty. Vegetarian lovers, here is a restaurant for you!

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.
