“Good quality food, but little value for the money”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Tvåkanten enjoys a nice location and nice premises right on Göteborg's Avenue. The environment is not really romantic, but it could be very good for a business dinner. The food is well made, and the menu has the advantage (rare) of an effort towards offering typically Swedish dishes, or interpretations thereof.
Unfortunately the service is mediocre, done by amateur waitresses. The pretentiousness of the place, the reputation and the bill is in striking contrast with that. It is worth trying your luck there, but I am not sure I will go back.

“Tvakanten - great food with very Swedish flavors”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

I love traditional Swedish food and for lunch on the second day we decided to go to Tvåkanten on Avenyn in Gothenburg.

The restaurant is beautiful and I can imagine that it is even more so when it is dark outside. The fire was lit and there were candled on each table So all was nice and cosy.
I could not resist the cured venison to start with, served with lingonberries and celeriac. I loved the lingonberries but the taste of he celeriac I thought was a little harsh and for me, parsnip or swede would have worked better but the meat was great.

One of the maincourses was beef and one was cod, served with boiled potatoes, clarified butter, prawns and grated horseradish. The cod was perfectly cooked and horseradish is so great with white fish.

“Cloak-room attendant's service of high class”
Reviewed 7 December 2012 via mobile

Friday night dinner. We had great time. Quite modern cosy design with not too visible ventilation vaults. We were seated at a round table allowing comfy communication. The service was good. The food was beautifully arranged, the real treat for the eye. I chose halstrad röding, it was good, yet a bit too salty for my taste. The cloak-room attendant's service was a nice surprise, as it is not usual in Sweden to assist ladies when they put on their coats.

“Friendly and nice restaurant on Avenyen .”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

A very wellcoming place to come into from the cold street an evening in november . The interior a little rough but stilish and warm . The staff were friendly and made efforts to seat us quickly. The service continued like this, effective and with a smile. We enjoyed the meal and the good spirit. The price in the upper segment . We sure be back next time in Gøteborg.
