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.

Usually the food here is good but last time was not as good as usual... the fish was really dry although service good and fast as usual. Hope next time will be as good as I remember.

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

Our hotel recommended Sjobaren as they were open on Sunday evening.Located in Haga, old town, which is an interesting visit in itself. Three of us had a fine Swedish seafood dinner. (Try the baked cream fish with small shrimp). Good service, full of happy diners, enjoying the evening.An easy tram ride from mid town.

In Italy When fish and... More

We went to Sjobaren as we really wanted fish and we got so much more than we bargained for. We got there reasonably early and were told we had the last table so booking is definitely recommended. The staff were fantastic and calmly served the entire restaurant between 3 of them. They were friendly and helped with wine and menu... More
