This is a nicely positioned restaurant and bar. Staff are helpful. The menu is a little limited but what is on offer is good and serving are of good portions. The restaurant is suitable for families with young children. A venue that delivers at prices you can afford. If you join the Scandic Club you get 20% discount.

We decided on having a nightcap here as we were staying in the hotel in July 2016. We sat down an read the menu and decided... More

I ate lunch (buffet lunch) two times on week days in the beginning of 2016. The buffet salad and the choice of two warm dishes were disapointing. But they had a good dessert/fruit buffet and good coffee. I therefore decided not to eat there again (I never tried dinner there). On July 16, 2016 I decided to eat lunch from... More

Yes, the restaurant and bar are in a Scandic hotel (which are usually crapholes all the way around, especially for the price), but don't skip over the restaurant this one, because it's excellent. The search results list this as a "swedish fare" restaurant, but the apparently new-ish chef has had experience elsewhere in Europe, so isn't stuck on the typical... More

Ruby Bar is on the ground floor in Hotel Rubinen. Nice to sit out and have a beer or a drink. Week-ends are perfect at Ruby Bar.

This restaurant/bar is part of the Scandic Rubinen Hotel facing "the Avenue" and provided a nice meal which was something I can't pronounce or spell but effectively was a rib eye piece of steak served along with the trimmings. It was just what I needed. The bar has a wide selection of drinks and certainly plenty of options if drinking... More

Lovely stylish bar with a very knowledgeable barman and fantastic wine list. They serve a limited bar menu during the day - the meatballs were great! Good place to hang out for a drink and a chat/ read a book. Apparently there is a rooftop bar for the warmer months.

Ruby Bar is in my mind for drinks and snacks, I go here often when staying in the hotel. The service is atentive and swift, good choice of beers and whiskeys, not sure about the wines. The seating is not really for full dining, but comfortable enough for a short stay. Location is right on the "Avenyn", Göteborgs answer to... More

Gothenburg's Ruby Bar serves well prepared food inspired by nuevo latino cuisine. In other words, you get to try out exotic Latin flavours, such as grilled whole sea bream with coconut rice and mango and grape salsa; costillas (rack of veal braised in white wine with pistachio and sweet potato ragout and sour apple sauce); and cordero (lamb entrecote fried in herbs with potato gnocchi, pecorini cheese and pancetta chips). The food is served in warm and friendly surroundings with a cosy atmosphere.
