This gastropub close to the bridge on the edge of Gamla Stan is a nice choice. The fish and chips were outstanding, and the duck my husband had was good as well. What we really enjoyed, as beer aficionados (and why we chose The Flying Elk) was the outstanding beer list.

Rather pricey, but so is the rest of Sweden. We recommend The Flying Elk, especially for beer lovers.

When 15 people walk into a busy restaurant, after a day at an exhibition, that is booked, and the maitre de says "I have somewhere in cellar that might work", it has to be applauded.

We had access to a small bar with an excellent waiter who spoke to the chef when he realised there might be 15 burger ordered. When he was told there were only 9 his quick thinking meant that some of our group had the amazing Veal escalopes with a sauce that can only be described as heavenly.

I had the burger and triple cooked chips - delicious. Meat cooked med-rare to order, just enough jalapeño and strong cheese with crunchy salted chips.

They have a wide selection of beers and wines available and you can book online.

We had an amazing evening here and we both tried the short ribs which turned out to an amazing choice - the flavours of the food and presentation were both exceptional. The skinny fries a great accompaniment and not quite as expected - even better ! Would fully recommend this Michelin starred restaurant to anyone visiting Stockholm!!

Came here with a massive appetite after a day walking around Stockholm and didn't leave disappointed. The beer menu was good (I particularly enjoyed the locally-brewed Sleepy Bulldog Pale Ale) and the food was excellent. I got the tasty fried pork rinds with creamy chipotle sauce and the absolutely delicious "Spice Girl" burger with fries. Staff was very friendly and accommodating -- the main restaurant was completely booked for the night but they quickly found a place for me in the pub area.

If you're looking for great meal in a welcoming atmosphere that isn't outrageously expensive, I'd recommend checking out the Flying Elk.
