It is a public fish market with numerous stalls of fish sellers. Very interesting to walk through it and see the different types of seafood and fish. There is a restaurant that serves its customers fresh fish. We did not eat there since the smell...More

From the outside indeed it looks like a church. Once inside you see a fantastic display of fish and sea food for sale. There were crayfish, crabs, salmon, herring, flounders in short all the local suspects. Very cool!

As a citizen of Gothenburg I have never understood the fame of this place. It is a few fish shops in a strange looking building. I buy my fish elsewhere.

This is a small, clean fish market with two (maybe 3?) attached restaurants. We found it to be much cheaper to order at one of the market counters and take it outside to the picnic tables. We still got the same specials as on the...More

Not only is the building itself iconic and historic, the fish sold inside are simply the freshest, most fantastic in Northern Europe. You’re not going to find better salmon: smoked, baked, filleted or otherwise. My local friend assured me every vendor selling inside is of...More

Had lunch here, a fish soup. The fish was fresh and tasty, and in a cream based sauce. The sauce was a bit on the salty side (then again, I found most restaurant meals in Gothenburg on the salty side).

I don't think either restaurant in the Fish Market takes reservations - just show up. If the weather is nice there is outdoor seating (we had downpour and thunder, so ate inside). There are a set menus for the restaurants.
