    Traditional Swedish dishes. Great options. We did the tasting menu & everything was cooked and seasoned well- missing a bit salt but overall everything was great. The dessert was also perfect!

    A place with tradition for both dining and partying. Great place for classical Swedish dining with a choice of fish and game, as well as a great selection of drinks. At night, there are three halls with different music available for partying until 3 am.

  • 5Peter A. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) As a Gothenburger, you can only dream of a place of worship like this. Calls itself "beer hall" but it can possibly describe the atmosphere. Perfect service and wonderful Swedish dishes. Not very cheap, but rustic service and experience without compromise costs. The mill is a must when visiting Stockholm and is highly recommended! (Original) Som göteborgare kan man bara drömma om ett kultställe som detta. Benämner sig "ölhall" men det kan möjligen beskgiva atmosfären. Perfekt service och underbara svenska rätter. Inte jättebilligt, men rustik service och upplevelse utan kompromisser kostar. Kvarnen är ett måste vid besök i Stockholm och rekommenderas varmt!

    A must visit in Stockholm. The traditional food was delicious and the restaurant is charming. Our waiter Michael was very accommodating and warm. I can definitely reccomend this if you're looking for delicious traditional fare!

  • 5Walter M. 3 years ago
    Visiting on a day trip and happy I ran into this place. I was specifically looking for a traditional Swedish place and fortunately I found it! The service and staff are all very friendly. Had the picked herrings four ways, a couple of rounds of snaps and Swedish meatballs. Pickled herring is a bit of an acquired taste but everything else is super tasty! Super!

  • 5Evelina A. 1 year ago
    The drinks and the sorbet were delicious. The bar has a beautiful design. All the personnel was extremely nice, they talked to us and offered recommendations for our next stop around the city (we wanted to go somewhere to dance as the next stop). We felt welcomed there and we liked everything about the experience. <3

  • 5Lars D. 1 year ago
    Shoot out to the waiter. He knew his stuff and even gave a few recommendations for romantic places in Södermalm. Meatballs were fine. Beef Rydberg was excellent.

  • 5johanna k. 3 years ago
    Excellent service and delicious traditional swedish food. We are going there again for sure. Friday night was quite loud but atmosphere was cozy and nice. The place was quite full, so maybe reservation is suitable, if you want to go there especially with bigger groups. We absolutely love'd it!

    We had the Brunch offer (375kr per person). Although it seemed pricey initially, we did eat as much as we could! The food was fantastic, plenty and varied. Very good products and traditional Swedish dishes so it was completely worthy!

  • 5Celestia K. 2 months ago
    For a beer hall, it has some rather classy menu options. The meatballs had a great and hearty flavour, even if a little on the dry side. The mash was creamy, but almost felt like I was eating a potato- not very most, also a little dry for my preference....but the brown sauce is top notch- a shining example of a cuisine that knows how to abuse cream to disguise dryness. Definitely a favourite in all that I've tried across Sweden. The pickled cucumber condiments absolutely pull the dish together with the tartness from the lingonberry. The reindeer stew was also rich- but was not so much a fan of the thinly slice preparation of the meat. I do wish the cider options expanded beyond Pear and apple though.

    The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was excellent! The restaurant was lively with guests on our visit. The history of the restaurant is interesting too, serving traditional Swedish dishes. I had the Swedish meatballs, and the food was perfect. They have bread with butter, and coffee after the meal was brewed just right. Definitely a recommended place to go.

  • 5Studio Mavrek S. 11 months ago
    A nice experience for dining and night life. The place has a restaurant and a dinning area while having a lower clubbing floor where you can enjoy a live DJ and drinks from the bar. There is another clubbing area on the upper part of the place. Its located in central Södermalm area in Stockholm and conveniently close to the Medborgareplatsen metro station

  • 5Paolo De G. 1 year ago
    Amazing restaurant in the middle of Stockholm, we waited 20 minutes to be seated because it was Sunday, it was packed of (from what I could tell) locals eating and having brunch. The meatballs were amazing, the purée too. The place was opened in 1908 and the look represents this, but it’s still kept very clean.

    If you are in Stockholm and you want to eat Swedish dishes instead of international proposals, this is clearly a good option. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff, particularly the waitress. We had a starter, two main dishes and a bottle of red wine for 105 euro. The fried herring was very good but unfortunately the reindeer meat in the stew was a little bit dry, otherwise it would have been a 5 star score. Overall recommendable.

    Old Swedish traditional establishment that I visited 10 years ago. It has survived the Covid years, congrats! Food: the fish of the day, was fine. Fish itself maybe a bit dry, vegetables & potatoes- nice, the cream that was mixed with a horseradish made all ingredients work well together in this somewhat traditional Swedish dish.

    Nice place with nice prices. I don't like the food (the taste and the texture, but I normally eat Mediterranean food and this is have too strong flavour for me) but my partner enjoys it. Good quality-price, and good access. The blond girl who attends us was really nice.

    I have been a couple of times here. Once for brunch and it was good. Once for dinner and it was Ok. Inside you get this classic European restaurant feeling, but I think it lacks a bit of WOW-factor. It is however great for a casual meal.

  • 4Ira R. 1 year ago
    I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of the place but a waiter forgot about me and served the meal for too long. But the tea was absolutely free to my surprise. The cheese pie was delicious but generally the meal was pretty much salty.

  • 3C. 5 months ago
    Good food (I ate meatballs) but expensive. The pub is really crowded as the disco downstairs but I think the atmosphere is nice. Also alcohol is very expensive

    (Translated by Google) Unfortunately not the experience we wanted when a scent hit hard at the entrance so we turned right away. Now I know that Kvarnen is a good restaurant so I hope they solve the smell problem. The scent I think comes from empty water traps. We are happy to come again and give the restaurant the rating they deserve when the smell is gone. Had it not been for this, I'm sure I could have given them 5 out of 5. (Original) Tyvärr inte den upplevelsen vi önskade då en doft slog hårt vid ingången så vi vände direkt. Nu vet jag att Kvarnen är en bra restaurang så jag hoppas de löser doftproblemet. Doften tror jag kommer ifrån tomma vattenlås. Vi kommer gärna igen och ger restaurangen det betyg de förtjänar när doften är borta. Hade det inte varit för detta så är jag säker på att jag kunnat ge dem 5 av 5.

    I liked the historical place (old mill) and the food, I had a lamb steak which was really tasty. I give three stars because of the bad smell coming from the toilet downstairs, they should really fix this problem, it's not pleasant to eat with the sewage smell around.

  • 2Jonathan P. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) The food tasted okay and the service was really good! This restaurant is decorated like an authentic workers' restaurant. But the appearance deceives when the prices are presented. My partner took an entrecote for SEK 320. For this she took a beer for SEK 96. I ordered a casserole for SEK 200, and a glass of lager for SEK 92. Got a minor shock when the waiter came with the card reader, and also asked us to enter the total amount (a nicer way to ask guests for tips). * Sizes: 3/5. * Prices 1/5. 𝗧𝗼𝘁𝗮𝗹𝘁: 𝟮 / 𝟱. (Original) Maten smakade okej- och servicen var verkligen god! Denna krog är inredd som en autentisk arbetarkrog. Men skenet bedrar när priserna presenteras. Min sambo tog en entrecote för 320 kr. Till detta tog hon en öl för 96 kr. Jag beställde en pyttipanna för 200 kr, och ett glas lager för 92 kr. Fick en mindre chock när kyparen kom med kortläsaren, och dessutom bad oss slå in totalbelopp (ett finare sätt att be gästerna om dricks). *Maten: 3/5. *Priserna 1/5. 𝗧𝗼𝘁𝗮𝗹𝘁: 𝟮/𝟱.

    We came especially for the scandinavian local food, but it tasted general and not specifically swedish. All positive reviews will be justified, but unfortunately we didn't have a great meal here today. Too bad! Waiter was very friendly and welcoming.

    Booked a table for a bachelor party and upon arrival they changed some of the orders to salad for appetizers AND main course. They has asked us to order from a special menu since we were a large party, so we did, though they still changed our orders when we got there. The salad was average. If you want a beer after most bars close this is a good place to go, if you're looking for a place to eat I would look elsewhere.

    (Translated by Google) Okay just. Went to eat but it was not as good as restaurant food should be. The dessert (pannakota) was bad, I think it was too old (Original) Okej bara. Gick att äta men det var inte gott som restaurang mat borde vara. Efterrätten (pannakota) var dåligt,jag tror att det var för gammal
