Description: From market trader to purveyor to His Majesty the King. It all began in the early 1920s. Fisherman's daughter Lisa Elmqvist traded her wares at a street market by the waterfront, and customers quickly flocked to her stall. Her fish, shellfish and cookery skills were of such a high standard that she swiftly moved up to Ostermalms Saluhall - the perfect place to allow her ability to shine through. Today, 90 years later, the fourth generation of the Elmqvist family continues her work assiduously from the same stall, gaining more and more experience and ambitions. The restaurant has recommendations in Guide Michelin for the last 10 years in a row. During the renovation of the old market hall from 1888 you will find us at the temporary market hall at Ostermalstorg. We will move back summer 2018.

“Oh yum......”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Located in Ostermalm Hall, this is a great food hall space and one walk around and you quickly note that Lisa Elmqvist is the exceptional spot to eat. Had lunch here and it was absolutely fresh and delicious. I would have given it 5 stars but I thought the service was a bit aloof and tended to disappear.

One of the locals tipped me off as to why this place is so expensive and so good: They maintain a squadron of planes that airlift the comestibles fresh every day.

“Seafood - best in the city”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Either go to the Lisa Elmqvist restaurant at Östermalmshallen or buy your own seafood in the shops in Östermalmshallen and enjoy at home.

“Exquisite fish restaurant in interesting setting”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I ate here three consecutive days in a row. That in itself is testimony to how good the food is! It is also a charming setting right in the middle of a working market (although more like a giant deli or the food hall of Harrods such is the quality and cleanliness of the stalls). Service is excellent but one feels unhurried too - they do not try and get rid of you. The selection of mixed herring is most definately a great introduction to the taste of scandanavia however they have a wide and ever-changing selection of other fish and seafood. The smoked eel is excellent (as good as you can get in Wilton's in St James' London) and I also enjoyed the Brill in lobster sauce and the pike-perch with wild mushrooms. A fairly good wine list accompanies. It is not cheap but then again little is in Sweden.
