Description: Herr Julius c/o Strand Hotel serves Swedish classics with international influences, all made from ingredients that are in season and always of the optimum finesse. In the early morning, the city's most glorious buffet breakfast is served. Then a la carte is served throughout the day, and at the bar you can order cocktails until late. From a cup of cappuccino on the terrace to a glass of champagne, you can always indulge here. Diners and Stockholm residents have eaten, drank and enjoyed life here since 1912, near Stureplan and the promenade. From the dining room, you can people-watch at Nybrokajen and watch river boats go by.

“Brunch: Below average - avoid!”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

Noted the following:

- Caesar salad without chicken
- Tomato and mozzarella salad with approx. 2 % mozzarella
- Luke warm food, which would fit in very well at a three star hotel breakfast buffet. We're talking soggy bacon and scrambled eggs. The toasts had no taste what so ever and were also soggy.
- The chicken served was of horrible quality
- Price included juice which most certainly was the cheapest kind, tasted sour and artificial
- Desserts were of low quality, felt mass produced and had no distinctive/genuine tastes
- Small selection of bread

The service was alright and the staff were kind, but slightly inattentive.

Paid 295 SEK (EUR ~30) for brunch here. In no way can this be called value for money. There are many much better alternatives.

For some reason, the place was fully booked and packed with people. Must have been first-timers as ourselves, because I really can't see anyone going back here - I certainly won't.

“Nice atmosphere, poor food”
Reviewed 4 September 2011

We ate salad and burger. Both were pretty poor, fairly eatable. Atmosphere and service were excellent. We don´t wonder why the restaurant was quite empty whole weekend while we stayed in the hotel.

Great atmosphere and location. Service is adequate, food poor and overpriced, even for Stockholm.

“Great place to eat at if you like to be ignored”
Reviewed 13 March 2011

We booked a table on a Saturday for brunch at the Strand hotel. As we first arrived, the whole party was totally ignored. We stood there at the counter for several minutes whilst the staff went passed us a couple of times.

Finally we had to stop one of them to acknowledge our existence and we were shown to our table… and that was about it. Once again, this time sitting down, we were totally ignored whilst staff passed our table setting empty tables. We received no menu, no explanation on where the brunch buffet was or if it was possible to order something else, maybe a la carte.

So using the same procedure as last time we caught one of the waiters, who also happened to be the bar man, which probably explains the awful taste of our drinks. His vocabulary stretched to “yes” and “no” and to a rude way of cutting guests off when questioned about what wines they had.

All in all extremely poor service where staff didn’t seem to be bothered with guests, food that was poorly cooked and variety wise really pathetic. Never going back.
