Movitz – A really classical restaurant & pub in Old Town
You know that feeling, from the TV series Cheers – of a cozy local bar where everybody knows your name – that’s exactly the feeling you get when visiting Movitz at Tyska Brinken in Old Town. This is a charming, familiar neighborhood tavern and pub with good food and drinks at affordable prices, attracting lots of regulars and tourists from all over the world.
The restaurant is located in genuine cellar vaults from the 17th century. At this address, there has been a tavern for years. Under the name Movitz, the business has been welcoming guests for over 40 years and the current owner has been here for almost a decade. Taking over a classical business can be difficult, but in this case, there have been no problems as the owners have chosen to preserve both the environment and the menu so that all regulars feel right at home. As the saying goes, never change a winning team.
Among the favorite dishes at Movitz you’ll find classic dishes that are, although loved, rarely seen on the restaurant menus in Stockholm nowadays. These include the Cœur de filet Provençale, Surf & Turf, and Sole in white wine sauce. Another popular dish, especially among tourists, is Swedish meatballs, served as they should with a creamy sauce, mashed potatoes, lingonberries, and pickled cucumber. If you are really hungry you can start with appetizers such as “Gravlax” cured salmon, or Toast Skagen with shrimps, among many other tasty specialties. A small but yummy selection of desserts will satisfy those with a sweet tooth.

Movitz restaurant is also famous for their much appreciated “julbord”, a magnificent Christmas buffet. All the traditional Christmas dishes are of course found on the julbord, but you will also find plenty of shellfish and crustaceans, as well as some really tasty vegan options. Some of the vegan dishes are among the most popular items on the buffet and sometimes receive standing ovations from the guests. We recommend booking the julbord early, as it is very popular!
At the street level above the restaurant, Movitz Pub attracts visitors not only with their drinks. But with tasty dishes from the pub menu. The “steak on a plank” is the favorite here, and perhaps one of Stockholm’s best. The quality of the raw materials is very important at Movitz. The “steak on a plank” is cooked with tender Angus Beef, or fresh salmon fillet, for those who prefer fish. The pub is also a popular spot for After Work drinks, actually one of the best in town, according to the Nöjesguiden Guide. In addition to affordable food and a wide range of drinks, the generous opening hours, until 1 AM Sunday-Thursday, and until 3 AM on Friday and Saturday evenings, contribute to the popularity.
Despite the pub’s classic style, it is at the forefront when it comes to new beers. Many local craft breweries are represented, and the assortment is renewed each week – an excellent reason to come here often. Another good reason for visiting the Movitz pub is the live jazz played each Wednesday evening between 7-9 pm. During the Stockholm Jazz Festival Movitz is one of the jazz scenes, check the website for more info about current gigs.
In other words, you can come to Movitz all year round, Stockholmer or tourist, for a well-prepared meal or just a quick beer. You may bring your dog inside the pub, so feel free to stop by the next time you are out for a dog walk. Soon you too will be a regular, welcomed with a cheerful “how nice to see you, it’s been a while” when you step in the door!
