One of our best meals ever!

We simply loved KOKA - based on a recommendation from the FT we travelled to Gothenburgh to try out the much hailed restaurant. The room is beautifully designed and although small, there is enouth space between the tables. The innovation levels in the kitchen are high - and the most pleasing thing... read more

My husband and I had the 3 course dinner with the extra cheese course. It was wonderfully innovative in flavours and presentation. Service and food was excellent and impeccable. Must try.

As you would expect the food is good. But it didn't excite me. The wine-menu was good. Everything is a bit expencive. Tasteful interior. Nice to have been there, but afraid I won't return.

So many new tastes! Food I've never tried before, including garden weeds and algae. Swedish ingredients and new combos! Luckily only one menu to go with, or I'd never had the courage. Expensive, but worth it. Lovely athmosphere, slow food, an all-evening food and drink experience. Only thing missed was more Swedish drinking options.

Koka's reputation is well deserved. We enjoyed the 5 course menu, with paired wines, and every serving was innovative, attractive and delicious. The menu features interesting pairings and preparations, served at your pace without any feeling of being rushed. The wait staff was very well informed, provided understandable descriptions of the paired wine selections and were very hospitable. The chef... More

Excellent food, very knowledgeable staff, portions were not too large. We had the three course meal with wine pairings. The food was unique, very tasty. It was a very enjoyable experience. Plan to drop a couple hundred dollars with meal and pairings.

It now has one Michelin star and deserves it. Extremely knowledgable staff. Very interesting setting (butter is served on a stone). The food was fabulous. Highly recommend.

Danish design, spacious restaurant and professional staff to begin with. Beautifully prepared and served food. One dish was a bit salty, but all was excellent fresh with creative chosen herbs and accompanying veggies and more. Excellent for a tete a tete, but also for a proper business diner. Wines served combined perfectly with the food.

If you want something special and can afford around 1 000 SEK you will get your best dinner ever including the correct wine to every plate. The staff live for you and the service is extraordinary. The retaurant is ranked nr one in Gothenburg, and there are lots of fantastic places!
