This place was GREAT. We moved to Sweden a few months ago and tried Under Kastanjen for the first time when we had family over this week. Their food is excellent - real ‘husmanskost’. It’s not high end fine dining, but it is as good...More

We stopped in for a quick fika- Swedish coffee break- and were we surprised. Underground, it's actually quite large. And a great array of quick-pick pastries or you can order something more substantial. It bordered on elegant but was definitely casual. The service was great....More

Went for coffee & a snack during the day & returned in the evening for dinner. Quick, friendly service. Food really nice - especially the home baking. They own 2 bakeries (one gluten free), so everything freshly made next door. Free bread, butter & water...More

This place is a hidden gem where the service and atmosphere is at its best! The homexooking style is genuine and their menues are at a much lower rate than the touriststraps around.

Relatively small, but nice place to stop for a break at the center of the old town. We had a lentil soup and a piece if cake, !nd they both were wonderful! Friendly staff. Calming scenery.

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)
