“Must for the seafood lover”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

An incredible array of fish and shellfish. We purchased some prawn and crayfish salads, half a crab and some enormous prawns and had a wonderfully messy picnic outside by the canal. Not cheap but then nothing is in Gothenburg!

“expensive fish”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

It seems like this place is one of the symbols of the city, you cant read about Gothenburg without the fish church being mentioned. The building is really beautiful, both inside and out, it has a good location, right next to it is the river and a 2min walk will get you to the sea. inside you find a great variety of sea animals, although all in small amounts, and there are some ready meals to grab in case you are hungry. talking about prices, I think they are much more expensive than average. But it's worth the visit.

“A must-see in Gothenburg”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a must-see whenever you have people visiting, even if it is a little off the beaton track. Not only all the delicacies of the sea being sold, but also the little restaurant in the house. Looks like a church from the outside, but never has been!

“worship of the fish”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

A very particular location, an old church, very assorted foods inside. Unfortunately when I was there they were renovating and the area facing the river was a bit neglected. anyway, is a must to visit and taste

“Love Seafood?”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Then go here! Fresh and good for you. And I missed having seafood being from Australia. Scandinavian prices are high, but here isn't too bad and you know it's fresh.
