We were going to try to find another restaurant when we found this one was full but Kevin (the Assistant Manager?) convinced us to stay and introduced us to Alex who would be taking care of us. And they did. We had a wonderful time!...More

This is s delightful restaurant for Sunday lunch. Suitable for families and complete with fish pond and remote controlled boat to entertain the children and young at heart. The service is efficient and most welcoming. The food is enjoyable and well portioned. My husband particularly...More

Great food, OK service, overly expensive for the quality and quantity, so overall this was somewhat disappointing. The ambiance was not great either, watching the fish swimming in the large pond was the best part. Although nothing bad, we felt that price/quality ratio was not...More

I was not impressed with the food or the service. The food was just okay but for the price, it was not worth it. By far the most expensive place we ate at in Stockholm and our least favourite.

We just returned from dinner at Restaurang Rakan. There were three generations; my 87 year old mother, my thirty something daughter, and myself. Between us we had a lovely seafood casserole with the most delicious sauce, the very impressive seafood platter and a fish and...More

Nice place with a pool with fishes inside. They serve shrimps on a remote controlled boat which is super fun for children and tourists. Not suitable for business meetings and solos. Service was goo.

We took the chance and came to the restaurant without a booking. We were asked: "Do you want to sit by the water?" We looked like question marks, but it turned out that we could actually sit by a huge tank with fish in it...More

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
