This is a traditional Swedish seafood restaurant Famous and trendy where you can enjoy a nice glass of wine with a nice meal. In their new temporary location. Sorrounded by a fresh fruit and other fiids like a massive foid vourt. Great experience! Give it a 6 out if 10

Due diligence on Trip Advisor and Google was no real preparation for a very 'Wow' experience! It might be in a temporary location in a foodhall but that added rather then diminished the evening dinner experience we had - I guess it could be pretty noisy at lunch time though. Where we were sat on tables for two was pretty... More

The restaurant is in the market, in the centre of beautiful Stockholm, and because they also sell fish, what comes in your plate is always super fresh and...delicious! Sitting space is limited for such a successful venue, so you usually wait 5 to 10 minutes and share a table with other guests, but this is quite nice and matches the... More

I stopped in here for a quick lunch between sights in Stockholm. A simple dish of Gravlax at the bar was delicious and easy. The place was packed at lunch on a Saturday, but I was seated right away. Service was pleasant and efficient.

The food at the restaurant is good, but the service is not the greatest. They are very slow and not too professional. Our table was set up for 4 and we were only 2; nevertheless, the left the extra silverware and glasses on the table forever. It was only removed, after I asked them to do it. An open echelon...

The Lisa Elmqvist restaurant in the temporary food market at Östermalmstorg serves super fresh fish. The smoked salmon was a caress to the palate and the funnel chantarelle added a strong and delicious aroma to the rich salmon taste. Excellent but rather expensive

Was reading through all the reviews of this restaurant so had pretty high expectations of it. They were partially met as the new (temporary) foodhall they are located in was slightly disappointing in terms of atmosphere. Nevertheless: excellent fish and wine!

Fabulous location to eat seafood lunches in the local market. Even temporary location whilst renovating Saluhall finishing in 2018 is excellent. Not the cheapest but definitely one of the best.

Wonderful place, great shellfish platters and friendly staff. A must-visit restaurant to eat at the fish market, with Michelin stars. Would love to go there again, reservation is a must. Doesn't work on Sundays. Good wine list too.

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.
