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!!

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.
