Hotel Rival, www.rival.se, Mariatorget. This place has a Bistro, a Bar and a Café: It is a bit more expensive but not as expensive as Bistro Sud (see below). The Bistro is perhaps more suitable for dinner or a more luxurious lunch.
Bistro Sud, www.bistrosud.com, Mariatorget almost: This is a very nice but expensive restaurant in Stockholm. The place is though very nice and friendly and not at all posh and the food is excellent.
