This is the ultimate place where to enjoy every sort of fish! Strolling around through the amazing stalls you are overwhelmed by the delightfully prepared and impressively presented variety of fish courses. You are free to buy the fish at the stall and eat it straight away, then you will surely be tempted to try at least a second delicacy.... More

The place for friends at lunchtime. The fish is perfect and the hipster service is great. Don't miss it!

Apparently it is typical of Gothenburg humour to call a place like this a fish church. It is indeed full of many forms of fish - especially but not exclusively herring

Perhaps not the most exciting thing we have visited! Clean, interesting shellfish and seems very popular place for locals to eat. There was a queue down the stairs for the eaterie on the first floor. I'm not sure I would make the journey again though LOL

I've enjoyed a couple of quick trips to the fish church and I really do enjoy just looking at the variety of fish on offer. The building is very impressive as is the general area around it.

The place reminds of Faneuil Hall Market in Boston but all seafood. There are a couple of small sitting area that serve their food, but we didn't have time. Picked up some food such as shrimp sandwich, seafood pate, smoked salmon etc. to take out for lunch. Very fresh and tasty with very reasonable price.

The building is kind a special. It looks very much like a church (hence the name). It is basically a fish hall. You can buy fresh fish. There are a couple of restaurants. We ate at one. It was very expensive we thought, but the food was okay, not very special though.

If you'd like to have a very good lunch there, it's the right place.It's true that the fish market is quite small.

This was our first visit for lunch as we had a craving for a hearty fish soup on a cold snowy day in Gothenburg. Those piping hot, saffron creamed soup came with large chunks of fish, aioli and lots of bread and did not disappoint. The children shared a seafood platter for 2. Pricey but worth the experience.
