Description: From market trader to purveyor to His Majesty the King. It all began in the early 1920s. Fisherman's daughter Lisa Elmqvist traded her wares at a street market by the waterfront, and customers quickly flocked to her stall. Her fish, shellfish and cookery skills were of such a high standard that she swiftly moved up to Ostermalms Saluhall - the perfect place to allow her ability to shine through. Today, 90 years later, the fourth generation of the Elmqvist family continues her work assiduously from the same stall, gaining more and more experience and ambitions. The restaurant has recommendations in Guide Michelin for the last 10 years in a row. During the renovation of the old market hall from 1888 you will find us at the temporary market hall at Ostermalstorg. We will move back summer 2018.

“Pleasant setting in an interesting food hall / market”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

You can't miss Lisa Elmqvist while walking through the food hall because because of all the omnipresent crowd. It's also obvious that the restaurant is quite an operation given the amount of staff and space that it takes up. We got a table fairly quickly and were presented with a menu that had lots of tasty-sounding choices. While not the best food we had in Stockholm, the meal was certainly enjoyable due to its freshness and company. We struck up a nice conversation with a local couple who were seated at our table. Being able to interact with genuine locals made the experience feel that much more authentic.

“Market atmosphere, high class premium”
Reviewed 11 October 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is in a Sauhall, but the business is very good. We had to queue at 1+pm. We had the gourmet platter SEK 499 and steamed codfish SEK 280. The shrimps are so sweet! The food is delicious, but certainly expensive. They sell lobster too, but the price is lethal. If it's not filling enough, stuff yourself with bread and butter :P

“Gotta try the fried salt hearing”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Had a woderful experience. Staff was friendly and helpful, and had a great sense of humor. The fried herring is something everyone from US should try. The Ostuermalm Saluhall, the building Lisa Elqvist's is in is a fun experience, not to be missed.
I would recommend this to friends without hesitation.

“What a delight!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Lisa Elmqvist was such a great experience! Inside a wonderful Food Hall and the quality of the fish was amazing. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Make sure you check the daily offering. Usually very fresh and delicious.
