Although it's an Argentinian restaurant, we really wanted to try the meatballs. The dish was really tasty but a bit small. They have great tastes but the dishes must be bigger in my opinion. The prices are fine.

It's a small place in the old town. The location is definitely a plus point here. The staff is nice too. I was served very quickly. The selection of the dishes is fairly okay. I wanted to go for some swedish classics and got mussels as an appetiser, which were lovely and marinated salmon with potatoes. The salmon was okay,... More

This is a small cosy place of a restaurant in Gamla Stan. I can only recommend the Argentinian beef with french fries at the very reasonable Price of 175 SEK. Definitely a neat and nice place with competent service and good food. We'll go there again.

The atmosphere looked very welcoming from the outside, so we walked in to warm up after walking around Gamla Stan for some time. We only tried the desserts and they were lovely, especially the sorbet in champagne. If in Stockholm again I'd go back to try more of the food here as they looked and smelled wonderful.

Having failed to book a table anywhere in Stockholm on a Friday night, we were very happy when the proprietor of Samborombon found us a table for two in the corner of his tiny restaurant. We had been turned away at a number of other places and did not want to stoop to the low of the inevitable Italian or... More

The Old Town in Stockholm is full with 'täourist traps'. Here however, we found a true gem! Argentinian restaurant with great food and excellent service. 5 persons from work eating starter and main, drinking wine and having a great time. The Scampi was great and so was the lamb, really enjoyed it. The place is not big but cosy, the... More

We visited Samborombon on our first night in Stockholm and we were warmly welcomed by the owner. The atmosphere was great, on a cold night it was nice to come into a warm cosy space. We had the meatballs and Elk burger. My Elk burger was cooked a little under what i'd normally be comfortable to eat but I ate... More

I think if we'd have just visited 3 times, I'd have given this restaurant the full 5 stars, as the first three times we visited during our stay, it was excellent. Well cooked food and swift, friendly service on the 3 evenings we visited. However, we decided to go for lunch here once again,, as we'd been so impressed. But... More

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.
