Went here for a drink and food with friends, when we first arrived we didn't feel very welcomed. Staff seemed unsure about us and what we had asked, however we were eventually sat down. This may have been due to language barriers. Food itself, all round was excellent. Everything came quick and tasted fresh. The service soon warmed up and... More

Had meatballs as recommended by several reviewers here. They were quite good with beef and pork, well seasoned with strong sour cream presence..quite nice. Whipped/mashed potatoes accompanied the great meatballs but the potatoes were room temperature....This is what made four stars. Is a bit pricy however the views and ambiance were really really nice. Excellent service with visit from chef.... More

In summer, the Eken outside bar is the perfect place to enjoy a drink accompanied by views over Gamla Stan and the waterfront after a long day of walking through Stockholm. The prices for drinks are reasonable. Will definitely come back when I'm in Stockholm during the summer.

Friendly service, they really take care of customers. Food was very nice. Beautiful view to Stockholm downtown. Wines were ok just a Shiraz I ordered was warm and was served in a very small glass. The white wine was ok.

We dined here twice and the food was very good both nights. We'd recommend the Swedish meatballs if you've never tried them as they were fantastic. There is a good selection of food on the menu, a wide range of drinks and the prices are quite competitive with other restaurants in the area. The staff are friendly and professional.

My wife and I were exhausted, and we wanted dinner but have always been leary of hotel restaurants... after finding nothing in the neighborhood we surrendered and went in, and are darn glad we did.

Staying in Slussen

Neighbourhood Profile
Slussen
A unique mix of grotesque 1960s concrete urban vision and cosy historical Swedish brick houses, Slussen has become one of Stockholm’s most architecturally edgy and controversial neighborhoods. Plans to rebuild the area have been on the agenda for decades, however, so far no agreement could be reached, which is the reason for the continuing decay of its brutalist substance. Nevertheless, the museums and the main shopping street, Götgatan, attract both locals and tourists with Sweden’s most fashion-forward clothing retailers, hipster coffee shops and restaurants. Once the lights are out, the area turns into a bustling nightlife haven, catering to all preferences, from posh hotel bars to sweaty underground nightclubs. There is no better place to experience the clash between old and new Sweden.
