ok - Edit

The staff was quite ignorant and didn't make us feel that welcome. They have two doors where guests can enter and one of them is where the guests are eating. So whenever someone new came, it got cold in the entire room since it was winter. Maybe they could have closed that entrance... the buffet is quite expensive in our opinion especially because you have to pay extra for beverages and dessert in case you want that (which is pretty much always the case...). Those things are quite expensive too but you get water for free (thank god). I think they could have given a discount on the drinks or desserts to the people who get the buffet. But the food is good :)

Almost 5 Stars! - Edit

Herman's was so nearly perfect! The food is great, the view is simply outstanding, the restaurant plays good music and the prices are fair for Stockholm standards.
However, improvements could be made.
It's a small restaurant with one of the best views in the whole city so it's in demand, and many tables are reserved in advance. However, during our time there, we were moved from table to table twice without much explanation or apology. One of the dishes was gone and not refilled during our time too which was unfortunate.
Work out a better way of dealing with crowds and reservations and Herman's would be perfect!

Pros: Amazing city view, Nice variety of good food, Plays good music

Cons: Bad organization for crowds, Reservations system could be improved

Vegan is what matters - naturally! - Edit

This place rocks! A wonderful assortment of vegan dishes that has nuanced flavors for all pallets. The staff was super friendly and they were constantly freshening up the buffet with new and exciting entrees and other goodies. I found it very affordable, about $15, an all you can buffet of this quality would cost $20 in the USA. As for worrying about bio food, the most important thing for the planet is promoting things that lessen the impact of animal agriculture first and the organics will follow, i.e., we all cannot afford to eat pure organic food all the time. Therefore, restaurants like this must strike the balance of bringing vegan food to a wider audience and acquiring organic produce 100% of the time. If they did the latter, the price points would be unsustainable and they might not survive.
I wish we had this place in my home town. If you can only come to one vegan place in Stockholm make it Hermans!

(P.S. For the sake of public health, please please please require a new plate for return trips to the buffet. This is the law in most cities because when people touch the serving spoon to their used plate it can easily transmit horrible diseases like hepatitis A etc.)

Pros: The food is exceptional and it has the best view o

Cons: They should require a new plate every time to the

Only come for the view - Edit

Perfect views, but limit your consumption to coffee/tea and maybe some cake if you don't want to be disappointed. They will have bio teas available.

I've spoken extensively with one of the founders, and they moved away from genuine green buffet vegan food a long time ago. This is mainly a tourist trap in terms of the food.

Food tends to be half-decent, but expensive. Try to catch one of their theme dinners for something fresher and of better quality (maybe), preferably in June when it's light until 11 pm at least.

I can't resist this place because of the views and innovative hammocks.

Pros: Views

Cons: Prices

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.

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)

Updated from previous review on 2016-12-26

Pros: view

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

A disappointing visit - Edit

I went to Herman's for Valentine's Day as they had a special menu. Unfortunately I was very underwhelmed. The dinner was 300kr ($35USD) and was hardly anything special. The presentation was nice, but that's about it. The food was average.

Our server was completely unreliable; she was scattered and din't even explain the dishes to us as they arrived — we had to ask the chef as he passed. Worst of all, the tables were SO close together that I was only a few inches away from the stranger beside me.

Overall, I found it to be disappointing and not worth the money. Maybe I'll give them another shot, though I can't say I'm excited.

Pros: Decent food, Nice interior

Cons: Expensive, Crowded, Poor service

Just Yes!!! - Edit

We went here two nights in a row ... our last two nights because it was so perfect!

Food is delicious and so much choice!!! Everything is vegan!!! Even the delicious cakes!! A whole salad bar and hot options like pizza, shepherds pie, puff pastry pies topped with sesame seeds. Everything was so tasty and it's a buffet so you help yourself!

Drinks are great, they don't have wine 'no strong alcohol' but they have cider and fruit juice and coke as well as free help yourself tap water.

The dessert tart with crumbled shortcake and blue berries with vanilla cream (which we took away with us) was so yummy!!!

Really friendly staff who spoke excellent English!!!

Lastly, the place is set up so nicely with pictures and quotes on the wall going down the steps. Some witty t-shirts for sale e.g. 'Give peas a chance' or 'lettuce pray' and fantastic views over the sea.

Perfect; a must see if you visit Stockholm!

You can turn up or book a table before; it was quite busy both nights we went.

Enjoy!

Exepcional vegan food - Edit

I never review anything online. But this place deserves it.
Best cakes and coffee ever, seriously it was the most delicious chocolate cake i've ever tasted.
The golden milk and the oat milk latte was outstanding too.
It's a shame that we lost our chance to try the vegan christmas buffe.-
But we went to the tradicional one and it was delicious. the scaloped potatoes were remarkable-
The whole personal of the restaurant was very kind and helpful. Hoping to be back.

Pros: the food, the personal, the view

Cons: it's difficult to find it

Pros: all vegan, cosy

All vegan buffet - Edit

I can confirm everything is vegan here, it was the first question I asked! Basically it works like this: you pay first, and then you fill your plate with as much as you can eat. If you want to add dessert to the meal, you will have to pay extra. It is a bit expensive: a meal for 2 was around $53 after the conversion. The food selection was great and I'm glad they have a sign reminding you not to be wasteful and fill your plate only with the amount of food you really need. It's a very generous meal, so pace yourself. We sat inside because it was chilly outside, but you also have that option if you have warm clothes.

Pros: Great vegan food, as much as you can eat, Friendly atmosphere, Outside seating available

Cons: Expensive

Its all good - Edit

Went on a Tuesday after 3p and it was 195DK per person and desserts were half off with purchase of buffet. Coffee and tea included. No alcoholic beverages available.

Went on a Thursday before 3 and it was 100DK per person for takeaway. Desserts were full price. Dine in was 130DK. With takeaway we were given 2 containers per person about 5"x8".

My choice of seating was the patio with umbrellas (and heaters) right off the indoor dining. The open patio just done the steps from the indoor dining/umbrella covered patio had great views too!

Pros: ample options, great views, friendly staff

Cons: not enough to detour me from going, but no alcohol

Lovely - Edit

With so many options on the buffet it's hard to know what to try next. everything was really tasty.The only slight downside is that when we entered it wasn't clear what to do, eventually found the till where you pay and pick up the plate.It would have been nice if some sweet option was part of the buffet as the cakes were a little expensive.We loved it so much we went twice in the short weekend we visited.

Pros: Lots of options, everything vegan

Cons: No desert included in the buffet
