Yes, the restaurant and bar are in a Scandic hotel (which are usually crapholes all the way around, especially for the price), but don't skip over the restaurant this one, because it's excellent. The search results list this as a "swedish fare" restaurant, but the...More

Ruby Bar is on the ground floor in Hotel Rubinen. Nice to sit out and have a beer or a drink. Week-ends are perfect at Ruby Bar.

Gothenburg's Ruby Bar serves well prepared food inspired by nuevo latino cuisine. In other words, you get to try out exotic Latin flavours, such as grilled whole sea bream with coconut rice and mango and grape salsa; costillas (rack of veal braised in white wine with pistachio and sweet potato ragout and sour apple sauce); and cordero (lamb entrecote fried in herbs with potato gnocchi, pecorini cheese and pancetta chips). The food is served in warm and friendly surroundings with a cosy atmosphere.
