Had a wonderful dinner this last Friday. Even though I had really high expectations of Håkan’s food, they managed to over deliver both when it comes to what we had to eat and the atmosphere in the restaurant. The whole feeling from entering to leaving the restaurant was very relaxed and filled with warmth and humor. Håkan himself was there... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant, and it was even better than the first time. Everything about this place is worth a visit - the food (the bread basket alone is worth it), the wine, the ambiance and the excellent service. We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a perfect night out!

Thornstom's Kok is not easily found, by Gothenburg standards, but it's only 5 minutes walk from the art gallery. The cooking here is a notch above what you'd expect. Decor is dark and moody, a bit like the staff. There's a private room for folk into that sort of thing. This is a cook that know's what he is doing,... More

We enjoyed the evening very much. Very good atmosphere and foot. Compared with other michelin star certified restaurants not outstanding but very, very good. The service was very good and super friendly. The Langustine was amazing together with the champagne. And: Though it is not a coctail bar: Very good dry martini! Thank you for that nice evening!

I was invited for a business diner (4 courses) . The food was wonderful, the wines were perfect matches, the service was good, may-be a bit long between courses, but that's a detail. Nice calm place.

Restaurant with nice, calm and relaxed setting for fine dining just a few minutes walk from the crowded avenue. Food is modern Swedish and one of the best I have had in Gothenburg, no disappointments. Staff is friendly and service minded. On the minus side, pauses between dishes were a little bit too long.

We found this restaurant via Tripadvisor and went there on a Monday evening. The place was almost full and the decision to seat us or not was made by the kitchen !! That is the right way to it ! Luckily the kitchen was ok for us to come in. We choose a menu and were prepared to get surprised.... More

Want to try the Swedish cuisine in a casual fine dining style, please try Thörnströms Kök in the Gothenburg noble neighborhoods.A short walk from some noisy Avenyn that do not offer near this quality.This air of exclusivity, but in a pleasant relaxed manner.The restaurant is nicely renovated and invites both the tasting menus or to choose something from the ala...

Thörnströms Kök (Kitchen) opened 30 April 1997. Fourteen years later, we received our Michelin star. We have over 55 seats in the restaurant, a discreet chambre separée for 8 people and our Chefs bar with 9 seats for drop in. Thörnströms Kök offers modern Scandinavian and regional cooking. Our work with the art of cuisine is in constant development. The inspiration is endless and with our creative people the delights of the table reach great heights - heavenly heights, maybe we can say with a star in our pantry. Thörnströms Kök is owned by Anne and Hakan Thörnström who runs the restaurant together with executive chef Billal Andersson, restaurant manager Maja Hempel and senior restaurant manager Peter Halldén.
