Great restaurant where both the local specialities and the more typical food for swedish local restaurant are excellent. All dishes we tried were excellent and service more than you expect in central Stockholm. It's like a hidden place. Nice atmosphere as well. This was my third visit and I will definitely come back.

You'd probably miss this place you weren't specifically looking for it but that adds to its charm. It's a small restaurant with a small pub vibe and the service was extremely friendly. The range of food/drink is good, especially if you're a meat eater, and you're sure to be very full by the end of your meal as the portions... More

Been here a couple of time but now leaving a note. They offer a varied selection of menu's however their house selection at a fixed 2 or 3 course is the best value. And yes you can mix 1 say starter from 1 menu option with say a main from the other option. You just pay the higher option menu.... More

Quiet restaurant with a very local clientele.. Lovely food and excellent service.. A short stroll away from the Kungsträdgården. You can easily see and taste the quality ingredients. Very good meal, moderate prices and good portion sizes too.

Excellent tasty food, nice location, quirky and traditional. Need no more for a quick business lunch. The fact that we found it accidentally adds to the charms.

A very nice little pub/restaurant in Norrmalm close to Kungsträdgården station. It's got a real locals feel and serves good classic Swedish dishes.

This small establishment is located in city centre, close to a subway entrance. It has only a few tables, but a bar where locals has a beer or two. We started with Toast Skagen. Avoid that dish. Soft bread and extremly small portion of roe. For main we had Wienerschnitzel and Cevapcici. The schnitzel had soft crunch, with potatoes aside.... More

You'll get your tournedor with either wedgies or the 'powder french'-potatoes . The meat is perfect, so the service and the middle-city atmosphere . The beer is perfectly cold!! In the core off 'the money-Stockholm' you'll find this tiny side-walk restaurang "Arsenalen" and you'll be home again !! Wish you ' good meal !! ' and a perfect stay in... More

Other reviews have mentioned that this restaurant is good value for money. We agree. The menu is on the small side but what is on it is good and the portions are large. Add to that beverages which are reasonably priced (for Stockholm) and staff that were really friendly and helpful and one has a great dining experience. Search this... More
