I was quite disappointed by our visit. Overall I didn't feel the restaurant was Michelin standard. We booked a table for 5 and were given a table for 4, so it was very cramped. We found the food overly salty and I left hungry because quantities were so small. Service was intermittent, a bit arrogant and the 3 course meal took more than 3 hours... too long IMO. I also felt the restaurant was too big and too impersonal. It cost a lot of money and it feels like they are sweating the Michelin star big time!

Great food, fantastic location and excellent service. Good value, for Sweden! One of the finest wine lists I have seen, at eye-watering prices.

One of my favourite restaurangs in Gothenburg, we go here at least once a year. It´s a fishrestaurant and the food is fabulous, high standard with great service in a relaxed milieu. There is a reason why they have a star in the Guide Michelin. The restaurant is placed in an old house, an old warehouse from 1775 for the East India Company, with all the old rafters well preserved, placed beautiful next to the water. During the summer you can enjoy your dinner out on the pier, and enjoy the sunset.

Very good food. Place is pricy, but it worth it.
We enjoyed our dinner. Fish was great.
Don't miss dessert. :)

Reaaly cosy, nice place in old wooden warehouse by the water with great atmosphere. Great food with focus on seafood and though a high end place, you can feel quite relaxed here beside the open fire, upstairs beneath the beams or outside on the deck by the water. Star in Guide Michelin, but if too pricy for you, at least try out the lunch. Have been with family a few times and always very satisfied with both food, presentation and atmosphere. Service good, but still a bit "uppish". If only eating out once in Gothenburg, this is where you should go!
