My chicken was just delicious and James really enjoyed his steak. Staff very helpful and friendly and a lively atmosphere. Keep an eye out for Winston the adorable pup who sleeps by the side of the bar ever now and then checking that everything is running smoothly!! A lovely night out, recommended!

Went in for a Sunday brunch and was very pleasantly surprised. My girlfriend had the brunch plate and sat there with a very very satisfied smile (after trying the scrambled eggs she asked if it'd be ok to kiss the chef :) ). I had the Vegetarian burger and it was easily the best burger I'd had since quitting meat.... More

Great spot for a restaurant but table tiny for 6 people on the sidewalk. Food was great, service good, lovely sunny day to enjoy the atmosphere. Good Swedish meatballs.

There was nothing wrong with the food but we were sat near a party of eight consuming large quantities of beer over a prolonged period before they even ordered food. We gave up any attempt to talk to each other.

This restaurant has been here a long time now and have plenty of returning guests. Focus on charcoal grilled meat, very good hamburger that you gladly take again. The scallops are good and everything breathes United States and Texas. Good and nice! Perfect location in the Old City in Stockholm close to the Royal Castle. Good for lunch also and... More

Excellent food and a pleasant cafe for eating inside or outside. The waiters are discrete and don't come without request but quick and helpful to serve when you call them.

The place is right next to his high quality twin restaurant, the bistro ruby. The grill ruby seems like a fancy steakhouse, it has a very sober appearance and the waiters are very friendly and work well and the service is fast. We asked for 2 beef fillet, one rare and the other medium, and we actually had a medium... More

This is the Bistro next door with the same name just change Grill for Bistro. I've been here a few times and I can't complain, rave maybe not, but it is quite ok! Good wine list, small but interesting menu ( my wife loves the mussels) in a town and area that is full of tourist and mediocre restaurants, this... More

Grill Ruby is allways a good choice if you're in Gamla Stan (old town). Located on the quiter of the two long streets in the old town, it is a good and relaxing place to have lunch or dinner. And the food is good. Service is good too. Prices are not for the ones on a budget.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
