A very cozy and also modern restaurant thriving with live. We were there on a Friday night and the place was delightfully noisy. We managed to find a seat without having made a reservation at the common 12-seats table which is offered for such cases. The menu offers good quality Swedish food. The burger was exceptionally tasty and juicy!

The service was really nice, smiling proactive, efficient. We had some tapas/starters there everything was good and original. The interior was really nice and taken care of.

I enjoy this place for a beer and maybe the occasional burger. For the rest I've mostly been disappointed. Not bad, just overrated, feel like I overpay.

We had lunch here on our last day in Stockholm. Read previous feedback on TripAdvisor as we walked by and wanted to check if it would be as nice as it seemed from the outside. It was!! Very nice food and friendly staff as well. "Eetcafé" we would call it in NL. We'll be back a next time!

We ate lunch here on the last day of our stay in Stockholm and were very impressed with the service and the food. We have some finicky eaters in out group of six and all customization requested of the menu items were cheerfully accepted and catered to!

I went here with a couple of friends for lunch. My choice when I ordered at the bar was a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. The only beer on tap for the day was a rare (at least in Sweden) Italian beer with plenty of hops from the Piemonte region; Menabrea. The Caesar salad was very well balanced and tasted... More

For me this is just the best hamburger in Stockholm. Not the biggest for sure, and not the cheapest, but the yummiest. Fries are delicious and the ketchup is home made. Hummmm can't wait to go there again. The ambiance of the place is very nice, a mix of cosiness and relax type of places. The waitresses are not only... More

Went here for an impromptu dinner with friends. From the start, the warm friendliness of the personnel amazed me. Since it was a legal holiday, this place was one of the few open, and were willing to accommodate our party of six people on short notice without having to make a reservation. What followed for my part was a fabulous... More

Staying in Vasastan

Neighbourhood Profile
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
