We picked dishes from the daily specials and they were all good but for some reason I did not get that special feeling from this restaurant. Maybe it is because of its touristy location in the old town...

Hard to know what you are getting in Gamla Stan in Stockholm: so many tourists. This was really nice. Small, homey, Gunnel is your server and the owner. The food is simple and straightforward, beautifully prepared. And inexpensive. Just a treat of an experience, very happy to be there, very happy to recommend. I had the "lamm huset" (house lamb)...

Excellent value restaurant offering traditional Swedish dishes with some interesting but not excessively "clever" twists. Gamla Stan is home to some pretty cliched Swedish souvenir shops and tourist trap cafes, but this is the real deal! It's also about 100 metres from the Gamla Stan T-banna station so it's very easy to take public transport. We enjoyed all of our... More

Nice and personal restaurant in Gamla Stan. Had lamb and the "polkagris" dessert. The food was excellent, as was the service. Nice and quiet.

The owner, Gunnel, is the only server, so do not expect quick service. She was not very friendly and just a bit scary. After we ordered, she brought a small piece of white bread with some fishy cheese topping. My dining partner asked for some bread, and the owner replied "this IS bread". Well, okay, then, I guess she didn't... More

We came on a Saturday night and were lucky to be able to get a table after being rejected by several restaurants. There was only one lady serving all tables and hence the service was quite slow. It took around 30 mins for our mains to be served after the starter. We were cold, tired and hungry but there was... More

My wife and I joined Finnish, Swedish, and British friends for dinner here in mid-September. It's a small restaurant in Gamla Stan, a part of downtown Stockholm that may be the most picturesque tourist trap I've ever seen. Nevertheless, we enjoyed an excellent, reasonably priced dinner in congenial surroundings. The restaurant has a homey decor, and doesn't seat more than... 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.
