Both the cuisine and the interior are truly based on local resources. We had an amazing variety of berries, roots, fish and greens that represented everything that's great about the Swedish summer. Even the details were right, like the typically Swedish wooden butter knives or beautiful smooth stones from the skerry coast as knife rests. The staff is nice and... More

As all things Swedish, this place is quite trendy. And because all things Swedish also seems quite pricey, we decided to go for the 3 course meal but even then I think we ended up having about 8 dishes each because of the various amuse bouche! Excellent customer service by staff who know their food and wine menus well. Would... More

Restaurant serving local food with international touch. The staf is great and give you feeling to be with friends. Still taking care of all the small things. The restaurant servers 3, 5, 6 or 8 dishes, with possible wine arrangement. All are small presents.

Had an exceptional experience. Service was great. 3 course set dinner was more than enough, with all the little extras you get. Food was exciting, well presented and really interesting in terms of the mix of textures and flavours. The pork belly was a stand out dish. Reminded me of Dabbous or a Texture in London. If you want tasty... More

What to say, this reastaurant is a bit strange as it does not have a menu. Every day the proposal changes, you can only choose in between the number of courses (3, 5, 7). And, also, if you want a wine menu or not. I decided to have a three courses dinner with wine menu, and the quality of food... More

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.
