I had a wonderful evening with my family, good food, excellent wine and atmosphere. I'm Nordic and I have used to eat dishes like these, even prepared ones sometimes . It's like my home ground here and the same goes with my family. I had my mother-in-law with us and herring dishes has been with her since she was a... More

If you´re looking for outstanding cooking and culinary delights when it comes to seafood, this is the place. Sjömagasinet is located very close to the Göta Älv and has a tremendous view of the shipping traffic passing in and out of port, the interior gives you a warm and cosy feeling and the service is, of course, close to perfect....

Everything was Ok. Nice place, very cozy, a 100% match with the weather, the staff seems happy ( very good) . The taste was good, but salted was the last flavour my mind got from the meal. Nevertheless I have had better experiences ( at least in taste) in Chile and Spain. Pricey, but everything is pricey in Sweden...

Our children gave us a joint present for our birthday. They couldn't have choosen a place were we could have had a better experience. The food was divine, the wine was spot on, and the atmosphere was cozy even though the weather was frightfully cold and windy outside. The people looking after us during the evening were highly informative about... More

Fantastic location and lovely setting and service. Romantic. Excellent traditional Swedish seafood. But a bit on the pricey side. But if money is not the issue - you will love it.

I almost never rate a restaurants 5 stars. But the food we had in October this year was absolutely sublime. There was no fault to it. The starter was a "sandwich" fried in about a kilo of butter, with confit egg in the middle and Swedish bleak roe harvested from Kalix in the Bothnian Bay. That roe is the best... More

Amazing historical place! An old warehouse from the 17th century, with excellent swedish food. Choose a table with a harbor view and enjoy the sunset.

The atmosphere and the intimacy of this restaurant make it very special, the rustic and historic building it operates from add to the experience. The fish, salad, and dessert we received was fresh but it wasn't memorable. I could tell the skill of the chef and his team but maybe I'm not a big fan of the typical Swedish cuisine.... More
