I had really looked forward to eating here but have to say that unfortuntatly everything just lacked that "wow factor". I ate everything that was put in front of me, the wine selection was great and the staff were excellent but at the end of the day it was a feeling of dissapointment and of tasteless food that I remember....

I had higher expectations the truth is. Couple of dishes were good. Some ok. Some were boring It was not the first time a visit a Michelin star restaurant so maybe I had higher expectations Nothing negative I just felt that I wanted a bit more flavors

Had a lovely dinner here whilst on a weekend break in Gothenburg. Very bijou setting with stunning decoration. The menu was set and you could choose the number of courses you wished to have. We selected five courses and the wine to match and we weren't disappointed. Lovely Scandinavian flavours and ingredients in interesting dishes. We chose not to read... More

The food was wonderful and creative. The staff at Koka were all very friendly and very helpful at explaining the food and the philosophy behind each creation. We took the 7 course menu with wine, which of course was amazing. However, the wine selection at times could have been improved in my opinion. Overall, the experience was very nice!

Last week we ate with Swedish friends in Koka. It was a great experience, very good food and a nice, not too formal atmosphere. The kitchen is modern Scandinavian, less original perhaps than Kokkeriet in Copenhagen but refined and very tasty. The amount of dishes was not too many (as in Kokeriet) but exactly right. We had 5 dishes and... More

A cosy venue a bit outside of the city centre of Gothenburg. Very friendly and warm service. The tasting menu was a real journey through Scandinavian kitchen. Wine parising was both very intresting and supported well the foods served. High recommendation!

A fantastic place to eat a degustation menu! All dishes we tried were fantastic! Our favorites were the nettle and strawberries with mustard caramel. I was really amazed by their home made butter, super fresh and light! Service was great, atmosphere fantastic! I especially liked the interior, tables were covered in leather, which basically told a story from every guest.... More

We had the 5 course meal. The servers were really nice and trained. But some aren't good in english so they weren't able to explain the dish as good as the others. The place is small but nice. It's near the city center (or in the city center? ;)). It was quite noisy when we were there because the people... More

Recommended in the Michelin guide for 2016, this one * Michelin place has a very nice cosy and welcoming feel to it. The chef cooking style is unique and experimental with extensive use of Swedish ingredients/produce and this has certainly delivered special dishes for the tasting menu. I opted for the 5 course tasting menu and all dishes tasted great... More
