“Tvakanten - great food with very Swedish flavors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

I love traditional Swedish food and for lunch on the second day we decided to go to Tvåkanten on Avenyn in Gothenburg.

The restaurant is beautiful and I can imagine that it is even more so when it is dark outside. The fire was lit and there were candled on each table So all was nice and cosy.
I could not resist the cured venison to start with, served with lingonberries and celeriac. I loved the lingonberries but the taste of he celeriac I thought was a little harsh and for me, parsnip or swede would have worked better but the meat was great.

One of the maincourses was beef and one was cod, served with boiled potatoes, clarified butter, prawns and grated horseradish. The cod was perfectly cooked and horseradish is so great with white fish.

“Cloak-room attendant's service of high class”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Friday night dinner. We had great time. Quite modern cosy design with not too visible ventilation vaults. We were seated at a round table allowing comfy communication. The service was good. The food was beautifully arranged, the real treat for the eye. I chose halstrad röding, it was good, yet a bit too salty for my taste. The cloak-room attendant's service was a nice surprise, as it is not usual in Sweden to assist ladies when they put on their coats.

“Friendly and nice restaurant on Avenyen .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

A very wellcoming place to come into from the cold street an evening in november . The interior a little rough but stilish and warm . The staff were friendly and made efforts to seat us quickly. The service continued like this, effective and with a smile. We enjoyed the meal and the good spirit. The price in the upper segment . We sure be back next time in Gøteborg.

“It's worth visiting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

I visited Gothenburg this October and as always I was referred to tripadvisor for a good restaurant. I had dinner last evening in Tvakanten. It was located in the Main Street, 100 m from the tram station. Inside it was a nice place but a little narrow and the tables were small and near to the others. The waitress were polite and good looking. The food was really tasteful. I ordered a codfish and it was served with a nice sauce with shrimps, potatoes and butter. I had a glass of italian white wine , it was a good one but you hadnt too much to choose. But if you would drink a lot you can choose from the many different bottles . I paid almost 500 SEK and I think it was a normal price.
You don't need to make a reservation before. If its full you can wait in the nice bar in the entrance and the drinks are very good.
