Was there about 27 years ago and despite rave reviews in the local "White Guide" it was appalling in every possible way. When queried the guide just pushed us off. We swore to never go back to Sjömagasinet nor to ever again trust White Guide (corrupt opinions?) Well kept the promise on the guide but saw that there was new... More

I had high expectations on the food and nothing wrong there but it was the outstanding service that made the evening.

If you love seafood and you love the humbleness of Swedish culture, this is your place! The atmosphere honors the old wooden building with beautiful beams running through the ceilings. It's right on the river, which gives a lovely feel to the entire experience. Don't miss the lobster soup!

Located right at the docks with a great view of the river going into Gothenburg. The restaurant is located in a old building that they have kept as old as possible but the a touch of modern design. Service is as good as you could expect. You will get all the attention you need during your dinner without seeing you... More

Restaurang Sjomagasinet is situated in an old building along the sea, a bit out of the center og town. They offer fine dining with a fixed menu or ala carte. The food is excellent and very tasty! I recommend the turbot (piggvar). The prices are stiff, bur the food is worth every penny.

We visited for lunch. Beautiful surroundings, well laid out restaurant that affords privacy. Food was excellent, generous portions, well presented, would certainly go back for dinner. Service was the perfect balance of attentive without being intrusive. The sort of place that has got things so right that you don't appreciate them until you visit a place that has got them... More

Excellent food in a nice setting by the river. You can see the ships going in and out from the harbour while enjoying their spectacular kitchen. I specially recommend their fresh seafood.

One of the best restaurants in Sweden with high quality fresh fish and sea food dishes, and also one or two superb meat dishes on the menue. The Christmas, Easter and Midsummer smorgasbord and daily business lunches are a must for anyone who want a good atmosphere and delicious food.

Really one of the most classy, cozy, and amazing places I have ever had lunch. Gorgeous interior of old 1775 warehouse. Food was so well presented and even better tasting. Wonderful on all accounts. The only room that was less than impressive is a big group room in the back on the 2nd floor. The ambiance downstairs is magical.
