Description: From market trader to purveyor to His Majesty the King.It all began in 1926. Fisherman’s daughter Lisa Elmqvist traded her wares at a street market by the waterfront, and customers quickly flocked to her stall. Her fish, shellfish and cookery skills were of such a high standard that she swiftly moved up to Östermalms Saluhall,built in 1888 – the perfect place to allow her ability to shine through. Today, more than 85 years later, the fourth generation of the Elmqvist family continues her work assiduously from the same stall, gaining more and more experience and ambitions.In the food hall the name of Lisa Elmqvist represents a fish stall and restaurant with a unique know-how and an inherited sense of the delicacies of the sea.Here you can shop for, or be served, the very finest fresh fish and shellfish – as well as ready-made dishes and delicacies from our own kitchen. There is also a well-stocked wine bar.Large parties for between 20 and 500 guests are arranged in the midst of the hall’s century-old food tradition.Our Catering team provides a complete service at all levels, with experienced personnel and the best from Lisa’s extensive menu – prepared, decorated and served wherever required.

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!!

Fish soup and food quality was good overall. A little pricey, but service could have been improved upon. Were ignored several times when we were trying to order our food and get the check after our meal. Did not feel that we were welcomed in the restaurant.

We visited this restaurant during our new year 2015 holidays. We took oysters with sparkling wine, it was beautiful. Also we taste some fish -awesome. This is gem inside old marketplace , where you can take away something really delicious!

We stumbled upon Lisa Elmqvist when we were visiting the market! We sat at the bar, and proceeded to have a wonderful lunch of the freshest seafood in Stockholm! The chips were divine as were our entrees! The beer was outstanding and cold--of course! We enjoyed the people watching. This is a great venue for lunch and a fun and... More

One of the best fish restaurants in Stockholm, perfect at lunchtime, especially at the bar. Their fish and chips is unbelievable (nothing in common with greasy equivalent in the UK).

Don't miss Lisa Elmqvist during your visit to Stockholm! Lisa Elmqvist is very popular and always crowded so it would be a good idea to make reservations if you want to eat at a specific time. We went as a group of 3 without reservations and our wait was only 10 minutes because we were o.k. sitting at a communal... More

If you're into sea food, this is the place to visit. Great food! Try the Skagenröra and/or Swedish shrimps or lobster.

I am from Gothenburg (on the West coast) and I do not normally eat fish when I am in Stockholm. But to have fish at Lisa Elmqvist´s restaurant is an exception. My wife and I had lunch at the restaurant that is situated in Östermalms saluhall. It was crowded, but we did not have to wait long before the waitress... More

The food is tasty, typically Swedish - and great. The woman who served us though (she was clearly new as she got taught a few things on the till by another waitress) - she was a bit, not rude, but a bit "I'm too good to be here - but have no choice than to carry on". Not very attentive... More
