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.

While visiting the food hall of Stockholm, we spotted the restaurant "Lisa Elmqvist" . We check with trip advisor and since it was highly scored, we decided to book a table . The first surprise we had was that we were placed to sit at a table with another 4 people . What surprised next was the arrogance of the... More

Tastebuds in heaven. No other way of putting it. One of the best Salmon tartare's I have ever had in my life and outstanding fish mains. So absolutely, unbelievably fresh. I almost want to go back to Stockholm to eat here again. Please note that it's closed on sundays which caused a huge heartbreak for my wife who wasn't with... More

Situated in the wonderful Saluhall market this Swedish Seafood restaurant is a pure delight. Reservations via their website are easy to make and from the queue today essential. In addition to a range of options there are daily specials. We tried the fish soup and avocado with prawn - both exceptional. Wine as usual was expensive but balanced by the... More

Have been to this seafood restaurant inside Östermalms Saluhall severla times and it has never disappointed. Fish and seafood are as fresh as you can find. Portions are good size and show Swedish cooking at its best. Not cheap but well worth the cost. Try Toast Skagen with a glass of white wine and enjoy!

Had an amazing lunch here with my fiancé and a friend of ours. We spent 4 nights in Stockholm during our summer holiday and a visit to Östermalmshallen and Lisa Elmqvist's is for me a must every time I am in Stockholm. The mix between great Swedish sea food, good, pleasant service and amazing atmosphere is an unbeatable recipe for... More

Good variety of seafood with swedish accent. Shrimps are very good. Halibut with asparagus also. Expensive. Some dish was forgotten to serve, some dish was changed. Better way to sit in the bar instead wait to be seated. Very good local draught beer.

This old standby is always worth a visit. Whenever I am in Stockholm, I go there to have a classically prepared plaice (a flat fish with orange spots fried in butter served with capers and minced beets and fresh Spring potatoes mashed into the brown butter sauce.) I like it with a Sancerre or New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. We... More

I chose this restaurant because of its recommendation here at tripadvisor. And its good rating is more than deserved. I had the fish with honey-mustard sauce and the fish was perfect. Not dry, still firm, fresh and of very good quality. Also, the sauce was like a dream. The fish wasn't drowned in the sauce but the sauce added to... More

If you like fresh salmon, eering, oyster, crab, this is the place to go. Little noisy atmosphere in the middle of central market in stockholm. You moght have to waot couple minutes before finding a free table. But worth the visit.
