We live across town, but it's worth the trip. The tapas and Latin American food is proper. Excellent for lunch, dinner and even dance at night. The staff is well trained and very polite.

The food is ok, service is terrible, tables are cramped. Sangria is more ice and apples than sangria. The prices are ok for Stockholm. The three times we were served here it took at least 1 hour to get the tapas we ordered. Last time we went there waited 20 minutes for services and it never came. We .left.

Quite a nice place. The Tapas is OK. . and the service is good. Would recommend the Gamba al Ajillo. Slots machines in a hallway that should be removed for a better total impression!

The tapas were excellent, but the meat dishes are real good too. The prices are reasonable and waiting times weren't bad. We've eaten there 4 times, it is worth the ride across town. It's about 50 meters from Skanstull metro station.

Do not go to this place! If you want to go to a good tapas place, choose another. There are way much better in Stockholm than this. They had absolutely no chicken when we were there, no potato wedges, no aioli. We got French fries with ketchup instead! And they still thought we wanted to pay full price for that.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
SoFo & Medborgarplatsen
Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods transformed from a rather quiet residential area into the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts. Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) & Medborgarplatsen managed to hold on to their residential charm and quietness and became one of the most sought-after places to live among young people in Stockholm. This neighborhood is also home to Sweden’s highest student hall, Skrapan, which used to be the head office of the tax authorities and now combines a mix of student hall and shopping mall with a bar on top.
