A beautiful building, lots of selection, amazing and unusual fish... All fresh from the sea. A feast for the eye as well as the palate.

Unlike several other "fish markets" I encountered in Scandinavia, I found this one to be used by locals as well as tourist and a good deal for lunch. It's not a huge market, but a good selection and very reasonably priced. There's a small area beside it with picnic tables-or places along the river to sit and eat. I enjoyed... More

Fresh fish to buy but also cooked fish dishes to take and eat just outside by the river, on a sunny day! There is an excellent oyster bar inside, for the non sunny days and not only!

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.
