This is a well known historical building in Gothenburg, well worth a visit, really fresh fish and some nice restaurants, a bit on the expensive side though. On a sunny day you can come here and buy a packed lunch and walk to the Bothanical garden and have a lovely picnic.

Had a wonderful fresh shellfish salad in the lower part of the hall. My husband enjoyed his selection of marinated herrings too. I agree it probably is more for tourists than locals as most of our fellow diners seemed to be foreigners but we really enjoyed our food. The only minor irritation is the fact you need to have a...

Once upon a time this was a really nice and authentic fish market. Somewhat of a showcase for Gothenburg. But not anymore. Nowadays it's a Tourist trap, with only a few fish stands, not very fresh fish, shrimps, etc. and expensive. Living in Gothenburg, I am sad not being able to recommend the Fish Church.

Shaped like a Church, gave the building its name 140 years ago. Open Tuesday- Saturday, the Indoor market offers seafood delicacies from the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean as well as an exclusive restaurant on the second floor.

It is named Fish Church only because the building resembles a church, it has nothing to do with a real church. Inside there are fish restaurants, you can also buy fish and shellfish to bring home. There is also readily prepared lunch that you can take out. In the summer or on a warm day you can sit outside and... More

If you want to see all the best food the ocean can give us, go to see this market! You'll be surprised to find all seafood possible and some delicatessen ready to be taken home!
