Restaurant Söders Hjärta
We would recommend Söders Hjärta for a good neighbourhood restaurant, right around the corner from the Rival, our favourite Stockholm hotel.
In Swedish this type of restaurant is called a "kvarterskrog" which is a casual neighbourhood restaurant much like your local pub in the UK and Ireland. The atmosphere is pub-like as well. In fact there is also a bar ("Hjärtats Bar") with a separate entrance from the street. The menu is made up of hearty, comfort food... mainly traditional Swedish but with some international favorites like schnitzel, cannelloni and moules frites. The portions are large and the prices very reasonable.
