We decided to go to Sjöbaren after seeing the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and we can nothing but agree. We booked a table the same Friday night - a wise decision as the restaurant was almost fully booked and the only available table they had was at 9 PM. When we got there we were greeted by the friendly and cheery staff who didn't at all seem tired. One of us ordered wallenbergare, which was great - definitely recommended! The portions seem to be on the small side though, as this is the type of restaurant where a starter is expected. The bill ended up on 600 SEK for two people with dessert and wine. A small place, but friendly, good food, great staff, very cosy with nice decor!

This is possibly the best value fish/seafood restaurant in Gothenburg. The service is amazing, and the actual space is refreshing and large (we went to the Lorensberg one). We both had the fish burgers as our main course, and although the dish would have worked better with a slab of fish than the spongey burger, everything was cooked to perfection. I especially enjoyed the interesting mashed potato that came on the side. I would definitely eat here again.

The prices are not overly cheap but definitely not expensive - we pay more for a typical steak dinner back home, and the quality of the food here is definitely first class. Everything is impeccable - the atmosphere, the actual produce, the cooking, the hospitality of the staff... I have never enjoyed seafood so much as I did here. I normally can't stand 'trendy' places with wanky presentation of dishes but the food is well worth it, even if the portion sizes are a little small. I would highly recommend the ling back with crab - one of the best dishes I have ever eaten.

The restaurant is situated in the old quarter of G. called Haga. Especially the seafood as starter or main course are very delicious. We had fish soup and the black mussels as starters, great. Then halibut and the fish gratin. Good quality has its price, it was nice evening. The waitress have been all kind and friendly.

Have been to both the restaurant in Haga and the one in Lorensberg a few times. The food is good and reasonably priced. The service is always good and the people who work there are generally friendly. It doesn't get extremely noisy so it is a good place to go and catch up with friends.
It is one of the better places to go when you want a decent meal without paying through the nose.
