Perfect address for a nice fish meal, situated in the cute Haga. Make sure you reserve a table, as this place is very popular. Staff was friendly and accommodating, menu not great for kids.

Sjobaren in Haga is a lovely seafood restaurant serving basic fish dishes that are flavoured well and at reasonable prices. I had the scallops with pancetta (excellent flavour) and their seafood gratin for main (good flavour and right portion). The only negative was the extremely slow service - it was full and they only had one waitress - who was... More

Cosy restaurant that specializes in seafood. Food was great but unfortunately they were out of much of the shellfish. Very disappointing since that was the reason we went there in the first place. We went on a Sunday so maybe call and ask about this if you plan on visiting late in a weekend (don't know if it's a common... More

One of the best when it comes to seafood! A bit costly maybe but if you're into food from the ocean Gothenburg is your city and Sjöbaren is definitely a place to tryout!

The restaurant was recommended in the Göteburg City Guide that's available for free in the train station and tourist info point. It's one of the very few Swedish restaurants we've come across both in the guide as well as online and we're so glad we found it. The food was delicious. We only went for main courses (smoked salmon and... More

Me and my friends went to this place because it was a recommendation from a Swedish friends of us. Everything was good until this waitress, dark hair, kind of old, was serving us... She was so rude, completely impolite that made our stance unpleasant. Even if you have a nice location and the good is good, I think we paid... More

The food was excellent for the price. Service was very friendly and ready to adjust to food allergies. Great atmosphere and cosy place, maybe a bit loud. Exquisite dessert. Certainly worth their ranking.

Although we had not booked the restaurant were able to accommodate 7 for dinner. The service was a bit slow, only 1 waitress for most of our stay, and she was very busy. There is 1 toilet on the ground floor, but 2 more upstairs then up a few more steps but this wasn't apparent and the busy waitress mentioned... More

Excellent, interesting food; efficient, friendly service; and a wonderful, cozy atmosphere. The restaurant is also located in Haga, an especially nice part of the city. The food and the ambiance are really distinctive and give a good sense of some of the best features and qualities of Gothenburg.

We dropped by on a Saturday evening in late June and we found the restaurant full. But anyway the waiter tried to find us a place to eat..unfortunately he could only offer two separate tables (we where 7 people) so we had to refuse. It was a pity because the place looked very nice and cosy..and the perfume that came... More
