Creative Nordic menu and interesting taste- its a Nordic scent and innovation from the chef- the Nice tailormade menus in an envelope and places for Your cutlery- its tasteful but should taste more- light in proteins and turning veggie style- i liked it but should be more demanding

We had the 7-course tasting menu, and every dish is a pleasant surprise. The taste is perfectly balanced with a slight hint of sourness. Since it is mid-summer, everything is refreshing and delightful. The dinner took 2.5 hours and vastly improved our mood. It's expensive (USD $110/person without wine), but well-worth it.

I reserve five stars for top restaurants. However, we ate a very nice 7 course meal with great wines at Koka. The location is the best in Gothenburg and the service is also great. I definitely recommend this restaurant to everybody who like a modern, Nordic cuisine based on local ingredients.

Earlier this year Swedish Chef Björn Persson decided to close his Michelin starred restaurant Kock & Vin with one star in the Guide. After a swift refurbishment of the kitchens and diningroom, a brand new restaurant called Koka arose a few weeks later from what had earlier been Kock & Vin. With adjustments in the interior, new menus and prices,... More

I had a very nice time at Koka. Very good service. I had the three courses meal, and that included 3 amuse-bouches.I enjoyed everything, I would say that the menu is very priceworthy for being in Sweden, but unfortunately the wines are very expensive.

Had their 6 course "Sinnenas meny" and it was all very enjoyable, but only 1 or 2 dishes were truly exceptional. Wine pairing, on the other hand, was really, really good. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Went there with some business colleagues on a recommendation, unfortunately we were filled with disappointment. The menu tried to be very clever, however each course had a few mistakes in the flavour combinations that ruined the dishes. For the price I would have expected to be blown away by a “Cookery Masterclass”, I was not! Of course, we may have... More

Dropped in here for some charcuterie and a drink on a Monday evening - the place was quite quiet but it felt very cosy and full of atmosphere. The sharing plates of meats and cheeses were delicious, if a tad on the pricey side, but you could tell the quality was high. The bar doesn't have the full range of... More

My boyfriend enjoys watching cooking competitions on TV, so for his birthday I booked a table at this fancy, one star restaurant. They were very fast to help us when we came in, were very polite and took our coats. We were shown to a table and were served champagne and appetizers. They were very polite and professional :) I...
