The restaurant is nice, centrally located and has decent decor. But what really sets this place apart is Magnus the bartender. He is a master of his craft and a genius to boot.

He has developed craft cocktails using only native Scandinavian ingredients. I asked him to surprise me, and oh boy did he!

The finale was a bespoke cocktail he crafted in memory of my dad based on descriptions I gave him. Red wine, single malt whisky, salted caramel syrup and a couple other ingredients resulted in a drink that brought back so many great memories I actually got emotional. The three hours I spent at the Avalon drink my way around Sweden was definitely the highlight of my two days in Gothenburg!

Avalon has for years had one of the best bars in Gothenburg, the staff is consistently excellent and both classics and new creations are served with impeccable precision.
Since this is a design hotel the restaurant and bar looks great and is littered with fun and/or weird art.
And if you want to feel the pulse on the city, sit on one of their arty chairs on their great terrasse and watch the people pass by.

Convenient location to drop inn for something to eat or drink but don’t expect gourmet food here!

Nice and long wine-list but limited food menu. The service has room for improvement.

Hi TravellerMan72.

Thank you for your review.
Avalon is not a gourmet restaurant, and we never said we were.
We serve good, well cooked food with nordic roots.
During the summer we have e menu that attracts a bigger audience since we have a lot of tourists and not our normal segment of guests.
I´m sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the serivce. Out service level is something we take seriously.

We at Avalon hope you give us another chance if you come to visit Gothenburg again.

Couch and cosy chairs on the terrasse.
They have blankets for frisky evenings.
Great choice of wine by the glass. Barman was nice and offered to taste different wine.
We had a great time there.
One complaint is the smokers near the door or standing near the terrasse. They should be smoking elsewhere.

My wife and I had the buttered Cod with new potatoes sprinkled with fresh horse radish. The dish came with white asparagus. Perfect ice cold glass of white wine and a perfect dinner!!!
