First Review by Poundie

A nice experience, but too expensive - Edit

Herman's has changed over the years, they are finally vegan. The "main attractions" are three - their buffet, their grill (during summer) and their dessert table.

The buffet is very overpriced, especially considering it's not organic, but it's nice to now and then choose from their wide selection of salads, their four dishes and other condiments that are accompanied by fresh bread. The taste is what you can expect from buffet food that's produced en masse, sometimes too bland, but most often quite all right. If only they didn't charge so much for it.

The dessert table is a nice attraction as well, the prices are yet again painfully high, but the assortment is not the run-of-the-mill kind and quality is fairly OK, which isn't very common for vegan desserts. Again you get the feeling of someone making it in their home kitchen, it's not a gourmet experience.

For the longest of times they used non-vegetarian cheese but still called themselves a vegetarian restaurant, and when the staff were confronted with that some turned VERY aggressive and deleted every review posted about it, but I guess it pays to persist - they're vegan now. The staff is not as rude anymore either, fortunately, although not particularly nice either.

Pros: Wide selection of salads, Nice dessert table, Varying themes on the dishes

Cons: Very expensive, Not organic, Historically - bad behaviour

Bland Buffet food - Edit

I wasn't excited by the bland buffet. While it had some nice salad and raw options, the lasagna was soggy and over cooked. Over all it was pricey considering drinks and dessert weren't included and the range of food on offer. It was functional but not comfortable seating with limited space, people practically on top of each other jammed in.

Pros: good raw food options

Cons: Expensive, uninsipred and bland range of food on offer, uncomortable atmosphere

Awesome view! And food - Edit

Studying in Sweden, I ate here a few times during lunch hour. They have an amazing variety of vegan dishes (also raw dishes!). The only 'negative' thing I can add is that it is so popular, that at least during lunch time (work days), you can hardly go there to have a relaxed lunch, there are just too many people! But the view from there is amazing! I can only recommend this place!

Pros: Price, Location, View

Cons: Lunch time is too busy

Luke warm, average but lots of variety - Edit

I think you pay a lot for the view here... unfortunately we didn't book and got sat in a room without a view even on a Monday. Food wise... there was a great variety of salads and several hot options but really the individual dishes were barely above average for taste and they were all only luke warm. You have to pay extra for drinks unless you just want water and the desserts all had individual prices on them behind the glass so we didn't enquire about them.

Pros: variety

Cons: luke warm, expensive (pay for the view, may not get one), food not a high quality

Expensive as hell but worth it! - Edit

I visited this place with an idea of a cheap buffet as a fair option for a non swedish tourist. But no, it is a very elegant restaurant with fancy food and very eyepleasing view of the bay. It is still a all you can eat buffet but very expensive. Nontheless it is wort of paying it. The food is very uncommon and with many options, e.g. "vegan herring", with wide selection of pukka and yogi teas, and elaborated desserts, all included.

Pros: very elaborated dishes and desserts, all you can eat!, nice decoration and views

Cons: expensive, very expensive

Don't miss out - Edit

I had the best dinner in Stockholm at this wonderful place near Fotografiska. The buffet idea is great, there is no queuing with food on trays; everyone can take their time, stay as long as desired and have all-you-can-eat delicious fare (all vegan). The music is just right, both soothing and entertaining, and the view over the harbour is unmatched. Super friendly and welcoming staff. Also the décor is warm and inviting, like a traditional bistro in a thick-walled house, with some Asian accents - great, because I don't like the "sterile" type of vegan restaurant. It should be a pleasure to eat out and Hermans certainly provides that in every way.
PS: Also loved the written signs - about the bins! :D

great value friendly staff - Edit

This was my favourite vegan eatry in Stockholm. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. It's also nut allergy friendly and the staff are helpful in showing you what has nuts. The food is good and I like how there is some mock meat options and not just tofu, the mince was like actual mince it was crazy. The view is awesome too - overlooking the harbour and at night it's particularly special. Good value and good selection in the buffet and the desserts are tasty too. Highly recommended !!

Pros: great value and lots of options also tea and coffe

no bio food - Edit

Disappointed that they do not use bio food.
so we must eat the Chemicals.
and they use normal cheap gmo rice also and add sugar to food.

This need to be changed totally Before i would consider to go there again.
expensive in weekends and evenings after 3 smht considering its not bio.
was looking again and still they want to be cheap and use the gmo rice which is hazardous.
Before they wrote bio food outside which was a con after saying they were taking the sign away.(because they were maybe using some very few bio stuff)

Pros: view

Cons: no bio food, gmo rice., added sugar in food

Best Vegan joint in Stockholm - Edit

I've been vegan 17 years and been on three continents, 15 countries, and in the 5 days in Stockholm this place was the best. Buffet style's can be hit or miss, Hermans was not a miss. Also the view from the terrace outside is amazing if you are there in the mild weather. I didnt try desserts because I was so full from great buffet, but was told all desserts are vegan. Price was normal for Stockholm. We had to wait in line but luckily not too long. The staff all spoke perfect English as well. I would 100% go back. Plus added bonus smokers couldn't smoke outside on the terrace and ruin non-smokers fresh air.




Updated from previous review on 2017-09-21

Pros: All you can eat buffet., Close to Photography Museum/ great view., Pleasant staff/ non smoking on terrace YAY

Cons: Entrance is a bit off putting.

Good food - great view! - Edit

The food was above average, but not much more. We sat outside in the sun with a great view over the city. Look out for the seagulls or they will eat your food!

Huge line to get in.

great view - Edit

A buffet-style cafe with a stunning city view terrace. I didn't enjoy so much my meal as I did the view ;) nevertheless it is another more or less cheap option to eat decent veg food in such an expensive city as Stockholm.

A buffet with a view - Edit

We visited here on the last night of our holiday. As most reviewers have already mentioned, the panoramic views are stunning and we were lucky enough to get a prime spot outside. Normally I'm not a big fan of buffets but the food was very tasty especially the lasagne and curry and there were plenty of other options available to cater for everyone. You can also get some grilled veggies from the BBQ downstairs. As with most buffets you can expect buffet traffic whilst you wait for your food but the wait is worthwhile in the end. Student discount is also available, which was most welcome when we paid for your food.

Pros: Tasty vegan food, Panoramic views, Student discount

Cons: Buffet traffic

No organic food - Edit

They should use organic food and good quality ingredients if they want to charge so much. The food was nothing special.
I´m complaining because the sign outside the restaurant used to say that they cook with organic ingredients and it turned out to be false advertising just like in many other places.

Pros: good view

Cons: no organic food, nothing special

Come here for both food and view - Edit

This Smörgåsbord of vegan food is great! Plenty of salads, spreads and raw cakes. There are many options for the gluten free and raw foodie, on top of that - the view here is impeccable.

Pros: Student discounts, Beautiful view

Cons: Pricey for non-students

Nice vegan buffet - Edit

Lots of glutenfree choices. The buffet was quite small but sufficient I guess. Bit pricy though. Long waiting lines. We called to make a reservation but we were told they don't do reservations. When we arrived lots of tables were reserved. Places indoor are narrow and crowded. All in all we had a good meal. Tea, coffee and water for free (that's a good thing, otherwise the waiting line would be really long and it makes up for the price of the buffet). Most food tasted good.

Pros: lots of glutenfree options

Cons: Bit expensive, not much options, crowded

there's a grill downstairs - Edit

All you can eat, coffee included but dessert is separate.

If you go, make sure to go outside with your plate and downstairs to get some grilled veggies. We completely missed out on this as there's no signage (at least none in English that I could see) and the cashier didn't mention it at all. We only spotted it on the way out because we saw the smoke.

Pros: all you can eat , variety
