We had the traditional Christmas table (Julbord). Everything was very tasty The service was very good and there were no queues to get the food. There were so much to select from even if I missed the smoked eel

We were told this restaurant was housed in a very old structure. Interesting, warehouse-like with a life sized anchor on the outside. Simple and stylish ambience. The 2 chefs were friendly and had clearly worked hard to create pre-Christmas, traditional table of salted, cured, smoked Swedish delicacies.
They had even prepared something special for the vegetarians among us. That however was not so special. Not sure if they were constrained by traditional Swedish recipes (which would have no veg) or if they just could not extend their talent to the vegetarian side?
Pleasant enough so long as the company is good.

Visited the restaurant with clients and had a fantastic lunch at a very reasonable price considering Sjomagasinet has been awarded a Michelin Star this year.

Service and setting complement the food perfectly.

Am looking forward to returning one evening over winter to be welcomed by the roaring fire, great service and delicious food and wine.

Sjomagasinet sits right on the water's edge with a view out across the harbour. The interior is stylish without being over-done. Service is excellent and every course if presented well. While the appetizers seemed to be pre-prepared the main courses were very good. Well worth a visit!

We were maybe expecting too much with the Michelin star rating and this being a classic fish and seafood restaurant in Sweden.

The produce was clearly great, however, the finished item not really exciting. The entree of shellfish salad a big yawn where the parmesan hit in the end. The second was great though and came with a razor clam and a langostine croquette. The third course cod was underwhelming and although the cod itself was fantastic the chantarelle's disappeared in it all. Cheeses were great but the red wine was a total mis-match with the more pungent cheeses while dessert was good but not exceptional.

Service was attentive, but no one in the entire staff knew who roasted the house blend of coffee.
