“Fantastic restaurant for lunch or dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Visited the restaurant with clients and had a fantastic lunch at a very reasonable price considering Sjomagasinet has been awarded a Michelin Star this year.

Service and setting complement the food perfectly.

Am looking forward to returning one evening over winter to be welcomed by the roaring fire, great service and delicious food and wine.

“Great location, top service, and quality fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Sjomagasinet sits right on the water's edge with a view out across the harbour. The interior is stylish without being over-done. Service is excellent and every course if presented well. While the appetizers seemed to be pre-prepared the main courses were very good. Well worth a visit!

“Disappointed, 3.5 really”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We were maybe expecting too much with the Michelin star rating and this being a classic fish and seafood restaurant in Sweden.

The produce was clearly great, however, the finished item not really exciting. The entree of shellfish salad a big yawn where the parmesan hit in the end. The second was great though and came with a razor clam and a langostine croquette. The third course cod was underwhelming and although the cod itself was fantastic the chantarelle's disappeared in it all. Cheeses were great but the red wine was a total mis-match with the more pungent cheeses while dessert was good but not exceptional.

Service was attentive, but no one in the entire staff knew who roasted the house blend of coffee.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I was quite disappointed by our visit. Overall I didn't feel the restaurant was Michelin standard. We booked a table for 5 and were given a table for 4, so it was very cramped. We found the food overly salty and I left hungry because quantities were so small. Service was intermittent, a bit arrogant and the 3 course meal took more than 3 hours... too long IMO. I also felt the restaurant was too big and too impersonal. It cost a lot of money and it feels like they are sweating the Michelin star big time!

“Fantastic meal and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Great food, fantastic location and excellent service. Good value, for Sweden! One of the finest wine lists I have seen, at eye-watering prices.
