Sometimes you give a very good restaurant 5 stars but know there are likely a few undiscovered gems and that maybe only those should be reserved for 5 stars. This was one of them. I use the word cozy a lot but what a charming atmosphere. Old world, cozy and intimate. Beautiful original wall paintings, a wonderful private room upstairs,... More

I stopped for drinks and dinner with some business colleagues on my last visit to Stockholm. It is located just off the trendy Birger Jarlsgatan, near the strand and the city center, in a cozy old building. The bar is comfortable and the bartenders know how to mix cocktails as well as how to pour a beer. The food is... More

We were looking for a bar and couldn't find anyplace where we could sit down. Came to this small place that had still tables available. Service was good. Soon afterwards it got packed. I thought the Swedish were silent but this was a loud crowd.

Excellent bar, but the restaurant is well worth a visit. Many Swedish specialities that are well cooked as well as excellent French fare. An older well established restaurant that is still worth visiting for food, service, wine and atmosphere. They have an excellent wine card. Reasonable prices.

We had a meal there on 11 August, our first dinner in Stockholm having arrived that evening. Excellent food and service, the meat balls were delicious, so was the dessert. Friendly and helpful staff. A very enjoyable evening. A must visit to all vistors to Stockholm!
