Great fish but not cheap!

A great market Halle that's fun to wander through. Food here is excellent BUT not for the price conscious- we had fish soup at the bar- delicious but close to $25 used pp for a smallish bowl.

Restaurant located in a great food market bustling with activity. We are at the bar for lunch as it was a busy Saturday and place was crowded. I loved the fish soup- great broth and favors. The big issue here is price not quality- my own take is likely too expensive for a casual lunch spot but others may disagree.

A Stockholm venue not to be missed. The surrounding food hall is an experience in itself. The restaurant, like the food, is simple and straightforward, albeit hectic on a Saturday lunchtime. Dishes are well presented and delicious. The menu is predominantly seafood/fish and the produce they use is wonderful. Great place, good value.

We spent 4 days in Stockholm last week with friends - a beautiful, sophisticated city! We booked several well known restaurants in advance, but one of our most memorable meals was a lunch at Lisa Elmqvist - a relatively simple fish restaurant in the interesting "markthalle". The Halle itself is a busy but charming commercial hub with a few restaurants... More

Delicious seafood served up in great atmospheric surroundings. Good menu with a good choice of seafood all done 'Swedish' style. Service was good and helpful although we had to share our table with others. For us not really a problem but others might find it irritating.

Excellent food in the middle of the market. You can start the lunch eating with your eyes in the Östermalmstorg market from different booths. Then have great sea food in this restaurant.

We came here for a late afternoon lunch, the place was quite packed and luckily we didn't have to wait for a table. The service was excellent, we ordered: oysters, they had a big variety of them; shrimp salad; crawfish on toast. All of the dishes were well made and fresh, the waitress was very professional and warned us not... More

My friend and I ordered a lemon sole with beetroot-caper and a perch filet in creamy mushroom sauce. Fish is very fresh and sauces good, but slightly in the heavy side. The portions are probably good for others, but for me, they could be half the size. Sat at the bar, which is must better than table seating, where you... More

Stumbled upon this place while visiting the saluhall. Grabbed a table quickly and asked the waitress for recommendations and what a treat we had. Wife had the crab (king crab legs) with "rhode island sauce" and I had the steamed cod with egg and potatoes. Also had a few oysters. Belying the simple descriptions, best seafood we had in stockholm.... More

We arrived 1 hour prior to closing, they close Saturday's at 4:00 PM. Did not have to wait which is NOT typical, wait in the past has averaged 15-20 minutes. I would highly recommend you visit, great location for lunch and seeing all the locals, and you can purchase some of the best fruits, fish or meat's in Stockholm. We... More
