We actually entered the restaurant from the internal guest entrance, as this is also the location for the morning breakfast. In the evening, with the lights dimmed and with candles on the table, it looked and felt entirely different. Unfortunately, all of the balcony tables were taken, so we sat inside, as close to the open windows as possible.
I ordered a beer for myself and a Sprite for Andrew. Now for the tricky part – what to order for Andrew? With the help of the waitress, we settled on a Rival Burger, completely plain, along with french fries. However, there was still one concern – the burger was made out of veal and I had no idea how Andrew would react. Thankfully, he ate the burger with relish and finished more than half of it, which I thought was decent, since it was an adult-sized portion to begin with. For myself, I ordered the Toast Skagen (shrimps in mayonnaise & dill on toast; with a small heap of cod roe), a seafood salad (mixed greens, scallops, shrimp, salmon, and a vinaigrette dressing), and for dessert, vanilla ice cream with various fruits and berries.
Both the presentation and the food itself were wonderful. It was pricier than any other meal on our Stockholm trip, topping out at 600SEK, including a 15% tip or roughly $80 U.S. Considering the convenience factor (we were back to our room in 2 minutes) as well as the overall quality of the food, it was money well spent.

It's not cheap, but the food is good and the atmosphere is really nice. During the day, you can look out over Mariatorget park, which is always brimming with people.
They have a nice breakfast buffet selection, including eggs and pancakes made to order, as well as a wide selection of breads and rolls.
Lunch and dinner have a variety of dishes, all of which sound quite good. All of the ones we tried were in fact quite good.
