A long time ago, Örtagården was actually the only vegetarian restaurant in Stockholm. It's definitely not the place with the tastiest food or the nicest atmosphere, but their vegetarian buffet is worth a lunch or two. We have been here twice. Both times the place was rather crowded, mostly by people between 40 and 60, and over. I guess they enjoy the old-fashioned atmosphere with old looking chairs and tables, long thick curtains, pastel colors and cut-glass chandeliers in the ceiling. It reminds me of my grandmother’s house, so it’s not especially strange that this restaurant doesn’t appeal to teenagers or people in their twenties.
Örtagården is located on the second floor of the house. Another, non-vegetarian, restaurant is situated on the same floor so make sure you go to Örtagården to the right and not to the other place.
The atmosphere or environment wasn’t really in my taste, but the buffet was good with a lot of warm meals and cold salads to choose between. The staff was courteous. The reason we returned was only because of the food. Every day they serve this big fresh and healthy vegetarian buffet, you can eat as much as you want, one or two servings tend to be enough. Bread is included in the price, not drinks. The buffet is completely vegetarian, but a lot of the hot dishes (like the potato gratin and lasagne) and the salads contain egg and milk, so it’s not a great options for vegans.
Örtagården is open Monday to Friday 10.30am-9.30pm, Saturday 11am-9.30pm and Sunday noon-8.30am. The closest subway station is Östermalmstorg. [more ]
