Our concierge Jonathan at the Nobis recommended the resaturant and it was indeed a good choice. It is very busy at lunch time, but we could sit outside on the terrace.

Food was amazing, products are fresh! Seafood lovers, be sure to hop there for lunch. Go early and late as usually busy. Pricey but worth it

This restaurant came highly recommended and we were warned that there are usually a line waiting to get in, so we planned an early lunch before the lunch hour rush. For a lunch the setting was perfect - we had a view over the different market stalls, also perfect for people -viewing. The food was exquisitely cooked. I think the... More

For my taste, I don't like northern Europe cuisine, but Lisa Elmqvist succeeded in make Swedish courses (like the classic herrings) in an universal style. I've appreciated almost everything, from the quality of the fish to the combination of flavours. Undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Stockholm.

Food was excellent - a beautiful selection of fresh fish and seafood dishes, all wonderfully presented and cooked. I had Toast Skagen followed by a beautiful halibut served with beets and a lobster cream. Service very professional though nothing out of the ordinary for a restaurant of this quality - not a criticism and service was very good though, as... More

Food was top quality as expected and service was attentive and welcoming. Minimal wait for a table in the middle of the afternoon during the tourism off-season. No qualms paying for market fresh quality. If you are a traveler on a tighter budget - buy from their stalls/counters instead and make a picnic outing of it.

Food was very nice - waitress was lovely. Tables were cramped together - they could benefit from taking one out.

From market trader to purveyor to His Majesty the King. It all began in the early 1920s. Fisherman's daughter Lisa Elmqvist traded her wares at a street market by the waterfront, and customers quickly flocked to her stall. Her fish, shellfish and cookery skills were of such a high standard that she swiftly moved up to Ostermalms Saluhall - the perfect place to allow her ability to shine through. Today, 90 years later, the fourth generation of the Elmqvist family continues her work assiduously from the same stall, gaining more and more experience and ambitions. The restaurant has recommendations in Guide Michelin for the last 10 years in a row. During the renovation of the old market hall from 1888 you will find us at the temporary market hall at Ostermalstorg. We will move back summer 2018.
