Food was fine. However, when i ordered pork, the waitress misheard and thought I ordered chicken. When telling her that the order was wrong, she wasn't apologetic and was insistent that she was right. She should've repeated the order to us to confirm the orders.

I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The space itself is cozy and well decorated, and the food was very good. My husband's homemade dumplings were incredible, as was the mushroom soup. Plus, the service was much friendlier than anything else we encountered in Stockholm....More

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
