Went for a few dinners with colleagues and friends while visiting Helsingborg. I am not surprised to know that S&M is #1 Restaurant in Helsingborg. The quality of the starters and Mains were excellent. A bit let down by the dessert on the only occasion that I had a dessert (hence the 4 stars rather than 5).

Visited Sillen & Makrillen twice this summer with two different parties. All eight guests thought that the food was very good only surpassed by a fantastic view of Oresund and Kronborg Castle in Denmark and a very attentive service despite the fact that the restaurant was very busy. Recommended the restaurant to several friends who all had a great experience

What a view. Right on the water. Excellent venue then add excellent food well prepared and you have a winner. Anything on the menu is worth ordering. The scallops just melts in your mouth. They have great wine selection and even good options for by the glass. You can taste the passion in the food

Visited "Sillen och Makrillen" ("The herring and the mackerel" even though none of them are on the menu) which normally is a very good restaurant with excellent kitchen and very good service. Unfortunately at this one time something went wrong. Ordered Dagens Tavla, or today's menu, which was a Japanese beef supposed to be very tender and close to Kobe... More

There can be few finer places in Sweden or elsewhere to be on a sunny September evening than Sillen & Makrillen. It was warm enough to sit outside on the terrace, and relax with a few cold drinks. The sunset was spectacular, the drinks were cold, the food was very good. I had the Skagen shrimps, always a favourite. The... More

Silllen and Makrillen is gifted with the location, being placed at the Öresund shore - but the kitchen and service keeps up with the expectations. Very friendly staff and well organized kitchen serves the customer well. Great menu with seafood and meat. Never got disappointed and visited several times with business guests.
