I ordered oven-baked cod with crab dumpling and mash, and it was absolutely delicious. The fish was incredibly fresh and well-cooked, and the food was presented beautifully. The waitress was very friendly, and the place had a lovely atmosphere - quite informal and cosy whilst still chic and classy. My dish was one of the most expensive - around 300SEK... More

This restaurant in the pitoresque part of Gothenburg, Sweden, is a real taste treat if you fancy a seafood / fish dinner. Always fresh and so so carefully cooked. I've been here several times and now recently with a business associate from Canada who couldn't really understand that seafood could taste this way. You most likely need to reserve a... More

This is a very nice little place in the old working class quarters of Gothenburg, which have been refurbished nowadays. Nice food with loud music - very loud.

Staff were really lovely, the lady explained the menu without asking, there were only about four things on the menu, it all would have been good. I went for the fish soup. Tasteful decor, go, Haga is a lovely area, spend lots of time there.

I went here for lunch together with several other people. Very crowded and as a consequence the service was on the slow side. The food was OK but not more. I had fish au gratin (fiskgratäng) with much to much gravy and overpriced. For a lunch price like this you would expect something out of the ordinary.

If you like fish and seafood, Sjöbaren in Haga is very good value for money. Try their famous fish soup. Also very cosy atmosphere in old Haga of Gothenburg.

Until recently Sjobaren was a very popular fish restaurant, situated on the main street in the picturesque district of Haga. Popular because of its excellent food, prices and location,booking a table about a week in advance was the only way to dine there. The manner of the staff was a little balzé and more than once we were asked to... More
