Description: With the glittering water of Lake Mälaren just outside the window of Sjöpaviljongen, you get the feeling of being out on the archipelago even though you are just 15 minutes from town. Moor your boat on the jetty and, depending on the time of year, take it easy on the outdoor terrace with a glass of ice cold wine or relax beside our roaring log fire and enjoy a warming meal. Whatever the season, you can't help but be inspired by the beauty of nature which surrounds the restaurant and which is reflected in the menu; a menu that follows the changing seasons with ingredients sourced in Sweden wherever possible.

“Great seaside location, but menu and food disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

Sjopaviljongen is situated right on the lake Malaren, next to a small marina in the near-town suburb of Alvik. Great location with beautiful views over the lake and islands of the city, walking distance from the Alvik metro station. The restaurant has a small bar, and large dining areas indoor and outdoor during the summer.
The menu and food was not very impressive though. There is not much variety unless you are a salmon fan (4 out of 5 main fish are salmon) and our 2/3 course dinner was nothing to write home about, entrecote almost raw, fish soup too salty, desserts average.
Service was very good though, much improved from previous visits, quick and helpful.

“Nice location, unable to handle feedback”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

With my family we planned to have a nice evening, the staff was friendly and we ordered two entrecote. When we tasted the steaks we got surpriced. the steaks were dry and chewy. We told the staff in a friendly matter that this was not right, but no response. Later when we got home we looked at the Swedish text of the menu , we see the following "GRILLAD HÄNGMÖRAD ENTRECOTE MED LÄTTORKAD TOMAT OCH KRYDDSMÖR [grilled entrecote with dried tomato and spice butter]" This might be a special Swedish thing, where it says "tenderized by hanging" in the Swedish text. The English text just states regular entrecote. If this was a bad translation only I do not know, the steaks was not good. But an advice to the restaurant is to take feedback in a positive proactive manner, then this still could have been a nice dinner for us all.
