The menu had a good variety of Swedish food and beer and it was promptly served by a friendly waitress. Prices reasonable for Sweden. We sat outside but inside looked like a cosy old fashioned beer cellar, fine for winter. It was very full: always a good sign.

My cousin who lives in Stockholm used to come to this place all the time for the all-time Swedish classics. The one time I come with my boyfriend and my mom when we are visiting Sweden we have to wait for more than one hour for our food to come. We saw a table who came in 20 minutes after... More

It's always good to have dinner here! I've been back here after two years and food is still very very good! You can find typical Nordic dishes a la Carte and dishes of the day!highly recommended. Prices are good to be in Stockholm!

Went here with my wife. Small place and lots of locals but still we managed to fit in. Service was great and the waitresses spoke fluent English. Food was really good and meals were good sized.

Looking for a local place to Ear at Sødermalm we came by This place. It was a pleasant surprice by all means. The service was polite and genuinly personal. The food was great and small collection of Swedish craft beer was good. We will be back next time in Stockholm.

Six of us visited on a Friday night. We had a reservation for 7.30pm. When we arrived the place was packed. A very good indication of its deserved popularity. The menu was varied with a choice of different European dishes. The menu cards were printed in Swedish, English and German. The food was well presented and very appetising. The portions... More

Place is very crowded and nice. Food is good (we recommend the fish soup with saffron). Come here if you want to be with a lot of Swedish people.

Nice pub with a quite european atmosphere. We had some starters and some main course, all more than good. The price was good considering that we are in Sweden. Recommended

Staying in SoFo & Medborgarplatsen

Neighbourhood Profile
SoFo & Medborgarplatsen
Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods transformed from a rather quiet residential area into the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts. Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) & Medborgarplatsen managed to hold on to their residential charm and quietness and became one of the most sought-after places to live among young people in Stockholm. This neighborhood is also home to Sweden’s highest student hall, Skrapan, which used to be the head office of the tax authorities and now combines a mix of student hall and shopping mall with a bar on top.
