We were going to a show and only had an hour an a half. In that time we had a three course meal. I happy with every aspect of my experience. Good food, service and location. We shared two platters of different meats, it was a little bit much actually. Then I had the small "Råbiff", and a chocolate dessert.

We had been recommended Restaurang Familjen for our New years dinner, and we were not let down. Very cosy place. It felt like visiting family and the food was outstanding - the restaurant was mentioned in the Michelin guide for 2016 (as far as I know). We had a 5 course meal including wine menu and pre dinner drinks. Food... More

We went on a friday night. Very friendly and professional service. Tasty and well prepared food. We had some different starters and no main courses. But the whole menu looked delicious.

We were 6 friends that went here for a bite before going to see a movie on a Friday evening. Very nice after work offering until 8 pm with smaller dishes and different glasses of wine or beer for reasonable money. Not too crowded. The food was good but nothing exceptional.

Have been to F tonight.... Familjen has been my Gothenburg favourite however tonight it was terrible. Party of 6 almost every dish has been bad... overcooked vegetables and salty meat. Sloppy finishing. Slow service. Waste of time and money. Probably will not return.

I keep coming to Familjen. A nice terrace and cozy interior ; local food well cooked and reasonably priced. The wine selection is impressive and the staff knowledgeable. It's a sure hit with friends and family, without breaking the bank. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed dinner here in August. Relatively expensive but a nice atmosphere and, on the evening we visited, a very good live act in the conservatory area (music might be loud if seated close to it though). We both had plaice and enjoyed it.

We chose Familjen due to the BIB gourmand rate in the Michelin guide – and that rating is spot on. The food is excellent, of high quality and innovative without being extreme or overdone. And the main dish is of a fair size. Our family had three different main dishes: asparagus, fish (hake) and pig. All three were very tasty... More
