“Nice seafood - even better staff and fun!”
Reviewed 27 April 2013 via mobile

The seafood is grand, you won't be disappointed, but not happily surprised either. Nice seafood basically! The fun is the atmosphere and the Remote controle boat that you get to steer your food with! Brilliant! Lovely selection of rom and cognac as well!+ lovely lovely staff!!

“Avoid king crab”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

This was our second choice since their neighbours were fully booked. Arrived very early, only us and a family at the restaurant, and although by the time we left it wasn't full at all, the waitress wouldn't give us a bigger table. Tables for two are ridiculously small for the seafood plates they bring: they had to remove our bread and drinks in order to accommodate the rest. About the food: we were definetely expecting much more. King crab leg (only one for 24 euros) felt like "refilled" with salted water, no taste at all, we left half of it. Crayfish, crab and lobster ok, but definetely overpriced. 10 euros for a mini creme brulee was indeed too much for a casual place, where a bunch of 12 German noisy men where drinking, shouting, laughing and toasting like at the Oktoberfest and no waiter would ask them to respect other clients. The bill was 200 euros without wine: half lobster, half crab, one king crab leg, 10 crayfish and creme brulee. Wouldn't go for for sure, nor reccomend it.

“Fun casual evening”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

a large shallow rectangular fish pond in the middle of the restaurant is the focal point for all the tables. Diners along the edge can opt to have their fresh shrimp delivered on the deck of a small remote controlled boat that you direct yourself. A fun option if you have children along and even for yourself.
Be careful not to feed the fish with your fresh shrimp!
The menu is limited but the fish is fresh -- start with the unshelled fresh shrimp and move on to salmon or whatever you choose. Excellent breads to accompany your meal.
A block off the main drag through a non-descript door. Very casual with wooden placards bearing written testimonials to the excellent quality and fun evenings.
Enjoy a beer and if you can afford it an aquavit (Swedish liquor prices are sky high).
Fun spot

“pick your dinner/drinks from the remoted controlled boats in”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Nice robust environment. Only one meatdish, this is a seafood/fish restaurant that is not open Mondays, because there no fresh fish on mondays in Gothenburg. Order your dish and drive it yourself to your table with a remote controlled boat.
