You'll maybe want to try getting a reservation, once we went and once we couldn't get in. One fine vegetarian meal which was great considering it is a BISTRO. Very nice staff. Amazing wine list. Good, good food.

An excellent bistro with good food and good service. A small restaurant and it's almost crowded everyday. Best to book in advance. Moderate prices but a bit noisy.

We ate here on a Monday night. It was busy but we managed to get a table. We had the pork for main course which was very tasty. About 250 sek. There were other mains that were cheaper. Service was efficient and pleasant. They were helpful in explaining things in English and allowed us to taste a few wines before... More

Went there by recommendation of our hotel. Food was ok, but not special. Service was divided, partly friendly but the other part not really at all. I think there are better choices in Stockholm!

On a Tuesday evening when the alternatives either had closed or were full. Nice offerings on the menu and we were surrounded by famous Swedish musicians and comedians... seems to be their preferred place. Good wine selection, and reasonably priced to boot. A pleasant experience all in all.

The restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff. The pork shoulder was delicious, but the char was average, quite plain . My son had a burger, no complaints there. The restaurant was full, therefore service was slow. The waitress looked stressed, but the waiter tried his best to serve us. Altogether was an average experience.

Food we ordered was good but menu was very limited. My husband ordered the veal and I ordered pasta with the famous yellow mushrooms. Both dishes were good. We finished off with Cloud Berries with cream and white chocolate. We ordered this based on the advice of our waiter and it was very good. I would recommend Sud if you... More

Recently this place got a number of not so good comments, mainly from british clients. We know exactly which waitress those people meant but we cannot complain. The lady does not have an overbearing (and sometimes fake) friendliness you sometimes get and some people expect. Everyone was friendly with us. More important, the quality of the food was good, everything... More

This is a pleasant enough atmosphere for eating, but the food is overpriced for what you get, even by Stockholm's expensive standards. The food is pretty average - not very imaginative nor especially tasty, but palatable. The service is quite unpleasant - the waitress we had was intimidating and brusque, and seemed to think a smile/a please/a thank you might... More

Staying in Mariatorget

Neighbourhood Profile
This rather quiet neighborhood revolves around a postcard-like park with a dramatic fountain in its center and is definitely one of Stockholm’s showcase neighborhoods. Mariatorget, a central residential area, is the best Stockholm has to offer when it comes to juxtaposing architectural masterpieces with sophisticated art galleries, coffee shops and bars. Stockholmers love to spend their weekends in the park or one of the nearby coffee shops, so come to Mariatorget to meet the locals. The northern part of Mariatorget boasts historic buildings, beautiful cobblestone streets, and one of Stockholm’s best observation decks, Monteliusvägen, from where you can see an amazing view of the city hall and Stockholm’s old town.
