I took my father out for a "boys' night out" during his visit with us last week. My husband was away on a business trip for the week-end, I had arranged for a baby sitter for our son, and I finally, after living in Gothenburg for over twenty two years, got a chance to take my dad to the opera....

We had our company Christmas dinner here. We had a private room upstairs. The view looked out at the opera house. The service was excellent. We had a six course meal with accompanying wine with each course. The food was delicious and artfully displayed. I tried foods that I haven't ventured to try before In Sweden. The meal did take...

The food was nice but I didnt have a single wow experience, the retaurant is beautifully designed and the staff are knowledgable but it you have one night in the city and you are looking for the best that Gothenburg has to offer, sadly for me this is not the Place. In my opinion you get a better experience at... More

Three of us really enjoyed our experience at this popular restaurant opposite the new opera house. It is rather pretentious and the service was rather slow '(the cooking is here is one of the 'slow movement' styles' said my son!) however the overall experience was good. The restaurant itself if a little dark, but quite romantic. We were highly amused... More

Its one of the best restaurants in the Nordic countries. The food (try the tasting menu) is great, the service is 5 star, the waterfront location in front of the Opera and great contemporary interior, makes this restaurant one of my favorites! It will not disappoint.

Again, I had an opportunity to visit Swedish Taste in Gothenburg. Knowing Swedish Taste from earlier visits, the expectations were set quite high. And, did they deliver! All expectations were met with a good positive margin. The environment, the service and the food was excellent. You will find an interesting mix of traditional Swedish dishes mixed with innovative new dishes.... More

Swedish Taste is an overpriced restaurant serving solid, but very simple food. While the food is decent, there is nothing special about it. Expect excruciatingly slow service and to be at the restaurant the entire evening. There are much better and more enjoyable places to eat in Gothenburg.

This is one of the best restaurants in Gothenburg. In the center of the city, rather dull area but worth a visite.

Overpriced tasteless, bland food. Is this really the Swedish Taste? Very disappointed, great presentation and location but terrible food.
