Love the place, usually meet my friends there. Nice atmosphere (no music so it's possible to have a conversation!), great staff and good deals ("wibe/bear of the month"). Nice food as well, also some vegetarian alternatives. In summer (and fall) you can sit outside. Book a table on their website because it's always crowded!

We had the toast skagen to start, it's quite a lot of shrimp and super creamy and tasty We then ordered fish and shellfish casserole and pork shank! The casserole is large and super fresh and very yum! The pork shank, it's ridiculously large - as in you should share it between 2, it was like a whole pork roast... More

Östgötakällaren is a classic restaurant, that serve traditional European food - often with Austrian, German and Swedish touch. Don't miss out on there Fläsklägg med surkål och knödel - it's absolutely fantastic!

Stumbled in the door looking for some decent food and beer. And I was extremely pleased with the result. Hearty food and German beer a plenty. I know I am leaving having eaten a little to much and most likely sampled the beer to heavily. Recommended.

If you wish to dine with locals only, this is probably not the best place for that, but you will very likely find loyal local customers. Service is very warm and the atmosphere cosy. Prices are affordable and the quality of food very good. I had an exceptionally enjoyable dinner here and will be glad to come back.

The pub has a very good ambience. We had Skomakarlåda. The food was great, a bit on the upper side of salt level though. The tastiest Swedish food I have ever had. The service is, however, really slow- my friend was getting quite annoyed with that. nevertheless, the staff is very friendly.

My first concern was the problem to make a reservation. Tried phone and then the email form on their website. The response to my email was that the reservation had been received but that did not imply I had a reservation. So the next day I tried to call again - and got a most kind and friendly response.

The menu had a good variety of Swedish food and beer and it was promptly served by a friendly waitress. Prices reasonable for Sweden. We sat outside but inside looked like a cosy old fashioned beer cellar, fine for winter. It was very full: always a good sign.

My cousin who lives in Stockholm used to come to this place all the time for the all-time Swedish classics. The one time I come with my boyfriend and my mom when we are visiting Sweden we have to wait for more than one hour for our food to come. We saw a table who came in 20 minutes after... More

It's always good to have dinner here! I've been back here after two years and food is still very very good! You can find typical Nordic dishes a la Carte and dishes of the day!highly recommended. Prices are good to be in Stockholm!

Neighbourhood Profile
SoFo & Medborgarplatsen
Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods transformed from a rather quiet residential area into the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts. Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) & Medborgarplatsen managed to hold on to their residential charm and quietness and became one of the most sought-after places to live among young people in Stockholm. This neighborhood is also home to Sweden’s highest student hall, Skrapan, which used to be the head office of the tax authorities and now combines a mix of student hall and shopping mall with a bar on top.
