It’s a 700 yrs prison converted into a bar and restaurant. We are intrigued by the underground dungeon especially after visiting the Cathedral next door. Didn’t have food but had the Swedish Falcon beer that satisfy my curiosity. Worth a visit if u are in...More

Stumbled upon this restaurant while exploring Stockholm Old City. Very unique setting in a 700 year old prison. Service was fast, food well presented and delicious.

We stopped at this café/restaurant for some fika. We had the mudcake and some coffee. The cake was good and the staff friendly. Cozy cafe with a lot of seating. Nice atmosphere, i think the place used to be a prison?

Nice atmosphere in a cellar build on 1300. Absolutely perfect mudcake and tons of free space. Quiet, comfortable and friendly service. Really nice architecture. The best thing however was that there’s no reception on smartphones, so you actually take a moment enjoying!

Recogido y oscuro. Recordando las antiguas mazmorras. Good service and good quality of the product. The toilets are upstairs and you need a key, in winter is very cold because is connected to the street so you lose the heat from downstairs.

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)
