The food and the atmosphere is fantastic.
The rest is history.
In Gamla Stan the old has been embracing the new over many centuries. You can almost feel the wingbeats of history flut- tering through the medieval alleyways, over the cobblestones, around all the nooks and crannies, and finally making the candlelight gently flicker at your table.
Ever since this building was first named – half a millennium ago – numerous owners and businesses have passed through. To make this long story shorter we jump straight to 1999, when the cool fashion boutique Agaton was converted to a restaurant and our own story begins. Over the last 20 years the best of Sweden has embraced the best of Italy at this address.
Hang on a minute, 20 years? Exactly. A small anniversary. Worth celebrating, isn’t it? A glass of sparkling wine before your meal perhaps?
Restaurant Agaton. The heart of Old Town.
Restaurant Agaton offers a loving mix of Swedish and Italian cuisine in a warm and inviting environment with first class service. Choose between well-prepared meat and fish dishes, as well as fresh pasta and newly-baked pizzas. Round your meal off with classic Italian desserts topped with Swedish berries.
We are the obvious choice for lunch in Gamla Stan as our salad buffet gets good reviews. In the evenings Agaton is often the setting for larger groups, including after-work get togethers, business dinners, delegations, family meals and wedding parties. Just ask, and we'll be happy to tell you about our alternatives. Ciao and welcome!
