+ nice atmosphere, cool location
+ easy going cool staff
+ fantastic food, seriously mindblowing!
+ strong tastes

- sometimes even a little too salty or creamy maybe
- booking 2-3 months in advance
- a little tight to sit, it makes it cozy, but you also feel packed like sardines

I'd give it at 4,5 stars in total

Took a trip into the suburbs to visit this place. Having read previous review was worried about understanding the menu as was lead to believe it would be in Swedish only (and why not, it is in Sweden!), however there was an English menu. Small, interesting menu with good choice of ale. Raspberry desert was lovely. Guys serving were really friendly and informative.

Had the sirloin steak for the main course which was excellent. This was upon the recommendation of the waiter. Just very good beef. Starter was horse beef tataki, while novel did not impress me as I did not taste the horse. The dessert was a wonderful creme brûlée with goat's cheese foam on top which was really rich and special.
It is expensive to eat in Stockholm and I think Lilla Ego gives the best value for money.

We went there at 4.20 pm to wait for a seat at the bar as we did not make prior reservations. Just be there early and I think it is worth it. Good job to the guys.

From the get-go, this restaurant was described as almost ridiculously rustic in terms of its interior design. One recurring detail in reviews is that the menus are semi-sloppily stuck on the wall. It may seem contrived, but there is a reason for it. The people behind Lilla Ego want the food to speak for itself. And it certainly does. The dish I had was beautifully composed, combining flavors in an intelligent, sophisticated manner.

The one drawback (at least for spontaneous souls) is that you have to book a table three months in advance. However, if you're comfortable having a meal while sitting in the bar, you can slide by Lilla Ego and take a seat. If you're planning to eat at the bar, I'd recommend that you turn up rather early, though, because this place is very popular - and rightly so.
