I went to Magnus & Magnus solo, and would first like to note that this place knows how to treat solo diners well. Excellent, attentive but not intrusive service. The food was lovely – innovative Scandinavian seasonal cuisine (clearly inspired by the Noma/Maaemo wave, but less strict with the ingredients – i got lovely tuna, for instance). Their suggestions for wine... More

I didn't have much time in Gothenburg, but I wanted to check out Magnus & Magnus because of its reputation. I arrived at 6pm when it opened and thought the place would soon be crowded but apart from Magnus himself and what looked like a couple of friends, I as the only diner in a room that was comfortable but...

Vent to M&M with a dear friend, this after been turned down at a close by restaurang. I must say, with the serivce, nice food, nice presentations I would higly recomend this place for others. The only negative was possible a pretty small table for the large plates. However, easy forgotten considering the rest.

Ali and have been lucky to eat in some fantastic places, this was the best meal Ali has ever had; it was pretty close for me, top five. The waitress was confident, welcoming without being intrusive a rare skill. The four course (plus amuse bouche) taster menu with 'posh' wine was £80 per head, amazing value. They asked us we...

Wonderful atmosphere and a really good selection of wines from the must-have selection. Quality of food is very high and the presentation does not lack anything. Also very good for gluten-free travellers! The only drawback: it is a bit expensive overall (approx. 60€ excluding drinks for the 4 courses set menu) and a low quantity/price ratio. Your taste will be... More

A big part of travel for me is creating memories and experiences around food. From nice places to street food there is no discrimination. We only had a couple day in Gothenburg and decided that magnus will be that experience. Happy to say that the food and service surpassed our expectations. The restaurant is quiet dark creating a warm atmosphere.... More

We went here for Valentines. It was decorated accordingly with red heart shaped balloons! Maybe a bit too much, but after all if you're in a valentines mood it is cute !

My wife and I have been eating at Magnus & Magnus irregularly for some years now and we have come to know the restaurant as a place that never lets you down.
