“restaurant in the middle of water”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

yes is amazing! actually is located in the harbour of the city, to reach it there is a narrow stripe of road with boat "parked"on the side.walking inside you can immediately understand that is a new structure with more levels in which you can find different enviroment: bar,party and wedding area, restaurant that is on the first floor sourraunded by huge windows that gives the feeling of floating, and the opportunity to see enourmous ships entering and leaving the harbour.food is excellent, two young chefs cooks in a open chitchen delicious fish and meat( i tasted both) and the waitress, even if forgot to bring us two glasses of wine ,was nice and helpfull.we had to wait a bit too much for our food (approx.40minutes).toilets clean and well fournished with the look of a ship cabin.it is quite easy to reach this restaurant because the cityboat stop is in front of it( it's like bus service)

“Good food, excellent service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were well recieved by a smiling waitress who gave us a table with sofa seating - perfect for our three yr old to play in. She also came with crayons for the kid - nice touch.

The food was avarage/good. My entrecote steak was overcooked (I asked for at medium raw steak and it was all grey), when I pointed this out, the waitress apologized and took it away at once and gave me a starter while I waited for a new steak. The second time around the entrecote was perfect and delicious. We also got free coffe because of the mishap with the steak.

It was a windy afternoon and we ate inside. I belive that the seats outside is excellent in summer with stunning views over the Göta river. We will come back!

“Classy restaurant”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

I attended a boat course close by and we eat our lunch and dinner here for 3 days. I cannot fault this place, the food was top class even though there were over 200 at each sitting, service was amazing and the staff were very friendly and attentive.
