Old Market Hall is a treasure trove of food! If I lived here Lisa Elmqvist would be a regular spot for me. I had the cold salmon and toast skagen. Both were great.

For a perfect lunch or afternoon meal in the heart of Östermalmshallen. Enjoy perfectly served fish, shrimps, lobster or oysters. Also a good selection of wine to accompany your meal.

A surprise to me! Such a good fish/seafood restaurant in a market hall. Had a fabulous lunch - but beware - it is packed. And a lot of people passing by and/or checking your dish out (if you sit at the hallway).

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 2019.
