I have had lunch here a few times and this is one of the best of this style in Stockholm. I assume dinner is the same.

The praise is about the food. The interior is quite robust and a touch rural, in its own fashion. Staff is super kind and forthcoming, my best compliments.

For lunch, fresh salad, bread, and coffee is included. Prices about 100 SEK.

My husband and I tried out this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend who lives in Stockholm. We are always looking for authentic food experiences in the various cities of the world we travel in.

We were thoroughly charmed!

The food was hearty and absolutely delicious - I would particularly recommend the crayfish soup and fried herring - the atmosphere was warm and cozy, and the servers were attentive.

It made for a wonderful night out in Stockholm - and was by far the best restaurant we dined at all week. I would recommend this place without hesitation for those looking for a real swedish food experience. I will be be sure to visit again next time I am in Stockholm!

Not that easy to find real swedish food in Stockholm. It seems that many restaurants that claim to be Swedish are catering to the "single visit tourist" and dont seem to care about quality. MATMAN is different. located on Hantverkargatan in Kungsholmen, it is far enough away from the tourists traps of the old town but still in walking distance to hotels and downtown. The atmosphere is down to earth and the serving personnel really make the effort to welcome you. when I was there last night they even asked another guest if he would like to help explain the menu in French for a table of french guests. he was happy to do so and the french table felt well treated and special. the food is creativly based in swedish cuisine and was tasty and beautifully served. Simon and Mia who run the restaurant are helpful and friendly. they are locals and will take the time to help you discover stockhol if you are a tourist and will encourage you to be a "regular" if you are a local.
