Just great!

Visited upon a recommendation of a local colleague who insisted we choose this place and not any other for our lunch. Three observations: Ever wanted the freshest seafood? It's your place.

This is a fun place in the Östermalmshallen - the popular and famous market in the heart of Stockholm. You sit among food stalls and you can see as you order your fish or seafood that it is taken directly from the fishmonger to the open kitchen and the Chefs who prepare it simple "clean" recipes, the Swedish way not...

When it comes to sea food I just love Lisa Elmqvist. Took an American couple here last autumn to taste different herrings. They cleaned their plates and wanted to taste eel as well. It was a success.

Good seafood and interesting location in the old food hall Östermalmshallen. Lunch is better booked at Gerda Johansson, it the same restaurant lesser known number. 08-553 404 40. Staff has been around for ages and know their stuff. The full fried plaice with skin and bones, kapres and bethroot is wonderful,.

Recommended by a friend, we found this beautiful indoor market with heavenly food! We didn't book in advance which meant we had to wait 15min, on a weekday! That told us that it would probably be quite nice. We took the seafood platter. Lovely delicate taste and beautifully presented fish. The service is personal and warm. Loved it!

Finally, after years of hearing about this place I had lunch here one Friday lunchtime. Well worth getting up at 4.00am for an early flight for. A stack of the best tasting prawns ever, and local Swedish beer. The perfect start to the best weekend.

Wow, great setting ( covered marketplace). We ate king crab and salmon, very nice. It is very crowdy but it is worth the effort of waiting for a place. Also, you can stay for a long time, even when other people are waiting for a table. Whenever I go back to Sweden, I'd definitely go back!!
