Description: Wedholms Fisk has been in its current location by Nybrokajen since 1985. Many of the staff, both amongst the pots and pans as well as amongst the tables, have been there since the doors were first thrown open to the first expectant guests. However, this does mean that time has stood still - the kitchen gleams with newly installed top of the range equipment and an inspiration to keep abreast of developments in food and cuisine.

Reviewed February 14, 2013

Expensive but really worth it. Excellent service. Fully booked every day of week but the atmosphere is very nice.

“Good food but SUPER expensive”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

This restaurant is known for good food such as caviar, wines, fish and the like. The atmosphere is nice, service is top notch, but our total cost was 1100 SEK or $175/pp. I'm sure there is a great fish dish for less in town.

“Outstanding - as expected”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Its been a couple of years since we visited Wedholms Fisk, an old favourite haunt. It did not disappoint. The Fish (for the 3 others in my party that love fish) is impossible to do better. And for myself - I hate fish - they have the "meat of the day" (as always) which honestly is possibly the best meat dish in Stockholm (!). What a great secret !! Reasonable wine list and stable, no nonsense service. A great place for food lovers and good conversation. Hip Factor is zero, so if that is your thing forget about it. But central location and outstanding delivery of basics make this well worth another visit.

“Such a disappointment”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Have you ever encountered an SAS stewardess and loved it, because of the tremendous service, happy appearance and utterly kind and unpretentious way of carrying themselves? Then you'll love this place for lunch

Made reservations for lunch with expectations of going back to work totally satisfied; Never happened. Upon arrival we were "greeted" by a middle aged waitress who looked like she'd rather be somewhere else, not being bothered by inconvenient guests (have you ever flown with SAS you know exactly what I mean, first class excluded).

When she remembered that we were actually there she placed us and took our orders. We all had the chanterelle soup as starter which was quite watery and bland (95SEK). My second dish was catfish with melted butter (~250SEK). My poor fish almost drowned in the butter, which was a disgrace, since the fish was really good. I asked for veggies instead of potatoes and got a bowl of sweet peas, which I like a lot, but unfortunately they were also drowning in butter.

The others chose cod with champagne sauce for their main course (275SEK). The fish was, just like in my case, perfect, but come on, what's up with the drowning? Their cod was totally drowned in creamy sauce. To top this, they served it with plain white rice. Really? I'm all for retro, but it still has to live up to the price you're paying.

Over all the service was strained and the food destroyed. It's like someone in the kitchen wanted to sabotage the perfect raw product before serving.

Sorry, but the quality seems to have disappeared with the passing of Mr. Wedholm which saddens me a lot.

“It's so classical it's on the verge of being boring”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Had a business lunch at Wedholms Fisk and everything went with meticulous precision; white impeccable linen, polished cutlery, classical fresh fish, sofisticated clientele which kept their voices down... in one word a bit boring. I was hoping something a bit more daring, cross kitchen, novelties.

Having said that I will certainly go back to Wedholms because I know that nothing goes wrong there- I will do it in particular if I am the host.
