From market trader to purveyor to His Majesty the King. It all began in the early 1920s. 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 Ostermalms Saluhall - the perfect place to allow her ability to shine through. Today, almost 90 years later, the fourth generation of the Elmqvist family continues her work assiduously from the same stall, gaining more and more experience and ambitions. The restaurant has recommendations in Guide Michelin for the last 8 years in a row.

A "Must" restaurant

We have heard of this restaurant for a long time. As it is always quite full, we went there at 12 noon sharp on a Saturday (you can only make table reservations for weekdays) and fortunately, we got seats! We ordered the seafood starter, the 'Delikatesstallrik' (delicatessen dish). It was so... read more

Happened to stumble into this restaurant in the famous SaluHall market in Stockholm. Place was packed so my wife and I had to sit at the counter. We tried the seafood sampler platter, so we got to try their different offerings in one go. WOWWWW! It is so fresh and succulent. Especially the smoked salmon. A couple sitting next to... More

Great atmosphere ,good service and an excellent selection of "Svensk" classic sea and fresh water fish dishes. At lunch time small starters also avaiiable. The shell fish is fresh and plentiful portions. My son-in-laws plaice melt in the mouth. and my perch/forrell a classic with wild mushroom sauce. Didn,t have room for dessert but they looked good too.

One of my favorites Restaurants since ages, not cheap but the ambience in the old market hall and the high quality fish and seafood compensates. The service last time was a bit slow but it was during lunch hours with a lot of guests. I will return again, probably not tomorrow but definitely after the refurbishment of the market Hall.

We came here for a rehearsal dinner last month. The restaurant is pretty from the outside and the environment where it is located in is nice. It felt like you are in the countryside, yet you are in the city. The food (grav lax and lamb) was delicious and the wine pairing with the food was good too. The lamb... More
