Stopped for a quick lunch. Very friendly waitress, good Swedish beer. The food was nothing to get exited about. Guess one can't expect more from a brief visit.

I tried the fish soup, which was delicious; a bit small portion, but very tasty; I stayed for a dessert, which was also a bit smaller than I had anticipated, but I had a very pleasant dinner.

If you go on the last Thursday of the month, a few opera performers sing for patrons. So while you enjoy a lovely meal and drink you're serenaded by fantastic entertainers. The food seemed to be traditional dishes and were delicious. Great atmosphere too - with and without the live entertainment.

This a the place to go after seeing a performance at the opera house. Most of the performers and opera staff go there as well, so you can give your compliments to them as well while drinking your wine, if that's your type of thing to do. The bar serves good selection of wines and sparkling wines by glass and... More

Bommen has excellent food, good service and really nice prices. I ordered the rib-eye with a zucchini and aubergine lasagna. The recommended wine was spot on. My wife, who was not really hungry since she had dinner with a friend just before we went here (yeah, really smart!) just took one bite from my plate and then ordered one for... More

Came across this place by chance, we had 1 hour to kill in Gothenburg and we headed direction of the harbour. Bar/restaurant is in a small building next to the harbour, away from the bustle of the city centre. We found out it was self-service, meaning you need to go to the bar and place your order.

Description
Bommen Restaurang & Bar is located on the site of one of Gothenburg’s old toll gates. There has always been a restaurant at Torggatan 1 ever since the building was renovated in the 1870’s. Bommens cooking combines Swedish ingredients with influences from near and far. Exquisite examples are fried turbot ”pot au feu” on primeur vegetables; new potatoes in mussel broth; and crisp roast breast of duck served with savoy cabbage parcels filled with duck confit. Regulars include technicians, dressers, musicians and chorus members from the Gothenburg Opera, which is situated close by.
