Where to eat?

Hello all! Coming to Goteborg in August and will be there for 3 nights. Where must we absolutely be sure to try to dine? I am a cook and want to go where my husband and I can get good solid food, both "fine" dining and "regular" dining. We are staying one night at Radisson Blu and 2 nights at Hotel Vanilla. (please pardon my spelling!)

Also any recommendations for cooking related shopping, like kitchen ware shops, or "gourmet" food shops. Somplace to look for a gift for a friend that is of Swedish heritage that is also a cook.

Looking forward to getting away from the extreme heat in Oklahoma!

Thank you for any guidance!

Kometen, classic Swedish fine dining. The head chef is Leif Mannerström, one of the most famous cooks in Sweden. http://www.restaurangkometen.se/ (only in Swedish, use Google Translate)

Sjömagasinet, another classic. Mostly sea food.

P.S.

The city's name is Göteborg in Swedish and Gothenburg in English. Not Goteborg.

Thank you for your input. Both look interesting. Given my lack of Swedish it will be very interesting ordering! Nothing ventured nothing gained.

Researching today I was reading about the "fish church" fish market. Good place to see and smell, not in a position to buy, just look? Also, what about The Market Hall? Worthwhile to have a look around?

Also, thank you for the lesson, I didn't mean to offend, just don't know how to type the letters with the extra bits and pieces, another in a LONG line of ill informed, ignorant Americans. I shall go forth and misspell no more!

The waiters will speak English and I'm pretty sure they will even have an English menu, so there will be no surprises.

Sure, The fish church and The market hall could be interesting, given your profession. In the market hall you can buy hand made local chocolate truffles from Flickorna Kanold ( http://www.flickornakanold.com ). A great gift to bring home.

We don't expect you to use our strange letters, that's exactly why we have an English name for the city! ;) Gothenburg was built to be an international city from the beginning and got it's English name in 1621.

Thank you for your input. If anything else pops into your head, please let me know.

It is humbling that English seems so widely spoken in Sweden. It certainly makes things easier for us, but makes me feel even more of an innocent for my lack of language skills.

Appreciate you pointing me in the right direction!
