This is a nice place for lunch; unfortunately the "saluhall" is under renovation but the temporary place is decent. Lisa E is a tradition in Stockholm (I think John Kerry was here last week) and I like having my lunch here now and then, when in Stockholm. What I dislike in this place is, that the feel is a little... More

I would rate our visit higher but we found tables a little TOO close together. We were fortunate in that those at the neighbouring table were delightful; However, it is less than ideal to be so close to those at another table that you feel you are part of their party...conversation seems unavoidable whether you wish it or not! We... More

It was recomended by 3 different friends who have been here before, so i knew i had to check it out. Temporal location was not my favorite, but the food here is amazing. We had the caviar, oysters, Crab legs, some good wine and beers. They were very nice to us, since traveling with a baby is difficult, so we... More

This was my second visit to Lisa's, and by far the best restaurant I've been to in Stockholm (or maybe anywhere). If you want to try superb, authentic Swedish food this is definitely the place to go. The skagen is to die for, as is the salmon with lemon sauce and the halibut special. It's a bit pricey, but definitely... More

The foothill has temporarily been moved across the street as they renovate the original (will take till 2018), but don't be deterred. The food is awesome and it is in a nice setting. We wandered through all the options and decided on Lisa Elmqvist, it was a great choice. I had the shrimp and smoked salmon salad served on an... More

Since Östermalms Saluhalls establishments were moved to the temporary market business and pleasure has developed. Lisa's seafood are still excellent. The service is knowledgeable and sophisticated. The local customers are satisfied. Along with the large number ot guest and tourists. It's affordable too. And a prefect venue for socializing.

This superb restaurant is at present situated in the temporary Østermalm Saluhall with no influence whatsoever on the food and service. Can't wait to be back again.

The old food market "Ostermalmshallen has been evacuated to a large box, due to renovations. Not a bad move, given the fact that the restaurants, Lisa Elmquist being one, can be accessed from the outside and stay open when the market is closed. We had a nice lunch outside with classic shrimp sandwiches and beer. The beer assortment is typical... More

This is a top notch seafood place, with very high quality dishes, wine and service. We had oysters, fresh shrimp, a fantastic fish soup and pike search. Everything was very fresh and tasty. The drinks are of course not cheap, but we were still very happy starting with Pol Roger champagne and a bottle of Chablis Grand Crus Les Clos... More

This restaurant will surprise you on many levels. At first glance, it is a simple restaurant located in a market but that perhaps is the key. This restaurant has the freshest fish I have ever eaten. We started with the roe and a herring tastings plate and of course schnapps. I ordered the grilled salmon and my husband ordered the... More

From market trader to purveyor to His Majesty the King. It all began in the early 1920s. Fisherman's daughter Lisa Elmqvist traded her wares at a street market by the waterfront, and customers quickly flocked to her stall. Her fish, shellfish and cookery skills were of such a high standard that she swiftly moved up to Ostermalms Saluhall - the perfect place to allow her ability to shine through. Today, 90 years later, the fourth generation of the Elmqvist family continues her work assiduously from the same stall, gaining more and more experience and ambitions. The restaurant has recommendations in Guide Michelin for the last 10 years in a row. During the renovation of the old market hall from 1888 you will find us at the temporary market hall at Ostermalstorg. We will move back summer 2018.

Staying in Ostermalm

Neighborhood Profile
With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.
