“Nice food and efficient staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

We ordered their wienerschnitzle and and a Barolo. The size of the served food was huge, and the garniture was tasteful, as weel as the pommes frites. Espressos and a mocca truffel ended a pleasant meal. Nice staff and the environment outside was good.

“Kometen Göteborg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The place to taste traditional swedish food, especially fish. From the classical swedish herring with crème fraiche and chives to the wonderful cod neck with horse radish and brown butter (beurre noisette)!

“A taste of Sweden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Celebrity chef Leif Mannerström has transformed Kometen to a place for Swedish home-style cooking. Tasted his famous Baltic Herring with pureed potatoes and lingon berries. Prepared to perfection, and includes bred and butter, coffee with home made cookies all for 125 crowns. The restaurant is legendary among Chalmers students, and one of the oldest in Gothenburg. Mannerström has brought up the menu to a very high level, but kept the interior and the friendly waiters.

“Traditional swedish with a mix of foreign influence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Kometen is run by famed swedish chef Leif Mannerström.

The focus is on traditional swedish cooking. I´d say that many of the dishes are quite "rustic" and this is not a cousines noveau kind of place. Which is actually the way I prefer my restaurants. I have been here a number of times and the food is always very well prepared and very much to my liking. Since this is a "Mannerström" restaurant they handle seafood with great skill but I ususally go for one of the "hearty" meat dishes.

Interior is quite "old" but this is by purpose since this is a restaurant that has enjoyed this very location for decades. Service might be a bit "burly" but always professional. Reason for this is probably becuase also the staff has been in this location for decades.

“Classic place, with OK food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

A classic among Gothenburg restaurants, these days run by star chef Leif Mannerström. Food is pretty good, but maybe you come more for the quirky atmosphere and to see Mannerström operate the business. Service is quite uneven, strangely enough...
