“Sailor atmosphere...”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

This restaurant have a "sailor atmosphere". All is wood-made: tables, walls, etc.
In the middle a pool with fishes. The starters will arrive on a ship: the waiter will give you the remote control and you have to drive the mini-ship near your table taking your starters.
I ate some salmon and the taste was good. The cost is between normal and expensive.

“Great family place”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

As a vegetarian I don't go there very often, but when we get out of town visitors, this is a fun place to go with kids. The remote controlled boats that deliver the shrimp, fresh seafood and a 'fishing' decor makes this a great place for a west coast inspired meal.

“An icon o Gothenburg and a must visit forthe seafood lover”
Reviewed 8 August 2011

Fresh shrimp in wooden crates , eggs, toast and snaps ! It doesn't get any better or any more Swedish than that! There is a little pool in the middle of the restaurant where you can drive little boats around. The atmosphere is fantastic. But its Sweden and it's seafood so expect to pay for the great service and food. But well worth it. We always visit eachtime we travel to sweden. Don't miss if you love sea food

“Best seafood place there is!”
Reviewed 9 August 2008

This is a unique place where patrons are seated around a pool of dangerous fish and their food (shrimps) is sailed to their table by means of a remote controlled tug boat.

Excellent food (herring starter with schnaps a must, seafood casserole as the main), excellent service (hello Hans!), excellent ambience (hours of fun watching the baby sharks and piranhas) and delicious cocktails.
