Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The service here was very friendly but slow. It took a long time between drinks. The menu outside had some items on it that were not accurate but our server said it just wasn’t updated. Everything else about the experience - the drinks and the...atmosphere - was lovely.More

We just stopped by for some light bites and had a very pleasant experience, just me and my young daughter- staff were very friendly, the lamb chops, aubergine with honey were delicious, reminded me of some I'd had in Cordoba many years ago. My daughter...had meatballs and enjoyed them (its the closest I could get to her eating Swedish food, but she's not keen on the accompaniments to Swedish meatballs). This place is in a popular location tucked behind the big Culture building and was very close to our hotel. Recommend, if you like Spanish food and want a change from the myriad of up market burger bars or pizza in Normallm/Ostermallm! As usual with tapas I would say with portion size, you need around 3 plates pp depending how hungry you are.More

Stopped into this place kind of later in the evening for a drink and a quick snack. They ran out of the liquor I was drinking so that part wasn’t great. Food was pretty good. Gambas and Papas Brava were both great. Not the cleanest...place but overall pretty nice all around.More

Has a fairly extensive menu of tapas plus some mains and a drinks list with friendly service although it took a while. The food and wine were both good and reasonably priced

First night in Stockholm and completely ignorant of restaurants closing times, so at 10.45pm this place was our only choice for dinner. The food was so awful that we probably should have skipped dinner altogether. Bad quality ingredients and bad cooking only resulted in awful...dishes, that should by no means be called "tapas". The slow and unfriendly service and the filthy toilets were a perfect match to the bad food.More

Went on a weekday with three friends. We chose it for the central location, but should have know better as this area is known to be touristy and quality might not be the word you associate with the location. A really busy restaurant but service...was okay and fast. Between the four of us we tried seven different dishes. They were all okay, but nothing out of the ordinary and it did not come off as being homemade. Variation was good but the menu cards with picture of the dishes looks like something you will only find at a tourist trap anywhere in the world. They could really do better in all areas, I will not return.More

Went for lunch, ordered three dishes per person. Lot of food, nothing wrong with it but quite average in taste. Staff was friendly and service was fast. Toilets were not too inviting, smelled quite a bit, and in my experience the cleanliness of toilets says...a lot about a place... Crumbles and dust in the window by our table. Will probably not go back here.More

Small dishes, too greasy and pricey. Good service and good house wine. One dish was great: Datiles Envueltos en Bacon.

The tapas had an acceptable taste, however everything was so greasy that it was impossible for us to finish our plates. Service was very lousy: despite several requests none of the 3 waiters gave us cutlery, napkins or glasses...we had to get it ourselves; apparently...they were too busy with only 12-15 guests... We will never return to this place!More

We were on our way back to our hotel after spending a few hours in Gamla Stan and decided to grab something to eat here. It was a great choice. Food was good as was the service. Nice choice of beers and tapas selections. Highly...recommended.More

This restaurant was close to my hotel. They have a nice large outdoor patio with heat lamps. Selection of tapas is good. And sufficient vegetarian options to choose from. The food I ordered was good. My first choice of wine was unavailable so the server...made an alternative suggestion and it was good. Service was good the price seemed fair.More

Tasty tapas, not to expensive and nice seating. Nice variety of choices and well cooked food. Outdoor seating was nice when it's not to cold. It was a busy restaurant and they would have needed more staff. The wait was long but waiters were nice....Not a place for a quick dinner. Reasonable prices considering the food and location. Definitely worth a try.More

Cozy ambient, perfect for the weekends. Sangria is marvelous, and do try the different tapas with Jamon, the croquette is delicious! Also, the tortilla de patatas is very tasteful.

Ended up going here for dinner since it's on our way back to our hotel and tapas sounded good after a long day. It wasn't crowded when we went there. We ordered a bunch of tapas and weren't impressed with the quality and taste of...the food. Would recommend going somewhere else for tapas.More
