This is a great casual restaurant that offers a good assortment of dishes. As a vegetarian, I was pleased to see some options for me. The vegetable and lentil stew with rice was really good. The service staff was friendly and helpful. It is a...good spot to have lunch if you are in Vaxholm on a day trip.More

Wonderful staff, great menu options. the location is right at the waters edge with nice outdoor seating, well spaced for safety during COVID. We went back twice as we enjoyed so much. Facilities are kept exceptionally clean and tidy.

I had the fish and my husband had the veil as main course. We would also like to...give five stars to the staff, they were very attentive, intuitive and so friendly!

While exploring the many islands around Stockholm we stopped in Vaxholm mid-afternoon and stumbled on this restaurant. They were just closing at 2:00 pm but Victoria kindly offered to still serve us. What a great meal, the food was excellent, the view of the harbor...great and her hospitality appreciated! I would certainly recommend Hamnkrogen to anyone visiting Vaxholm!More

The food was fantastic, I highly recommend the swedish homemade meatballs. They were super delicious and tasted exactly as homemade. The citronsorbet was also super delicious and refreshing. One could tell that the staff is young people learning how to do service in the best...way, but I think it was more cute than annoying to experience that. Food 10/10, service 8/10 in my opinion.More

We made a reservation by phone for the same day. Arrived at 8pm for dinner, even though the restaurant was about half filled only and three staff were behind the bar, they simply ignored us. We walked up and asked for our reserved table and...were pointed to it. For the next 25 min staff passed us occasionally with drinks and food for the other tables but could not be bothered to asked us. We left with noticing one of their staff that this behaviour is not acceptable at all, which he response was more than careless. Wondering what this place is like when fully booked. For us: never again!More

I booked the restaurant for my freinds visiting stockholm, with the hope that we can get an nice outdoor sitting on a summer day with the view to the water. Unfortunately the restaurant is not big, and therefore the outdoor sitting was also limited and...not necessarily with a good and comfortable view. However the food was really dellicious, the staff were rushed but helpful, but it is more of a diner than a proper restaurant.!More

This seems to be a local lunch spot. Value pricing with great food. We had fried food with potatoes and ended up sitting for over an hour over a cup of coffee with cookies chatting among ourselves and with some local retired people after the...lock crowd had left. The food was tasty, portion sizes perfect, the ambiance delightful, and the staff friendly. All this on a beautiful September weekday makes for the kind of experience that shows up in the travel section of the New York Times.More
