At Mei Rose, you can embark on an exciting gastronomic journey through China, with a magnificent view of Gothenburg's skyline.

Asian-Nordic minimalism

Björk och Bambu has one foot in the techniques of Asian cuisine and the other in the subtle taste profile of the Nordic region.

Bar La Lune

Wine-compatible and convivial

With sommelier Oskar Ahlvin at the helm, this little food bar is, unsurprisingly, focused on hand-picked, biodynamic wines and food that pairs perfectly with them.

Pivo

Wild food from forest and lake

In the middle of a leafy park behind Gothenburg's main square, Götaplatsen, you'll find Gothenburg's top game restaurant. At Pivo, game from both land and water is served alongside other delicacies from the forest, such as berries and mushrooms. The rustic decor is reminiscent of a hunting lodge and during the summer months you can hang out in the outdoor bar or combine dinner with a game of boules on one of the two boules courts.

A love of kebabs

It's no wonder kebab is one of our most beloved dishes - thin, spiced meat served in fluffy pita bread or on a plate, accompanied by various vegetables and sauces. At Dunder Döner in Partille everyone's welcome to enjoy a lovingly prepared version of this fast food dish. If you feel like changing it up a bit, you can also find falafel, chicken, and salads on the menu.

Gyllene Prag

Czech on the menu

This cosy neighbourhood restaurant has become something of an institution among the people of Gothenburg. You can enjoy Czech and Slovak food for both lunch and dinner here, for a reasonable price. Golden Prague is perhaps most famous for its breaded, fried cheeses and schnitzels, but the menu includes everything from goulash to cevapcici and Hungarian sausage. Naturally, Czech beer is also available on tap and in bottles.

Dirty Records

Record store and restaurant in one

Fuel up with a vegetarian and organic café lunch while browsing through old vinyl records ranging from blues to jazz. Alternatively, come here for a wine dinner with handmade pasta, Lebanese cuisine, or just some nibbles with a glass of natural wine. During the summer months, the outdoor seating area is a watering hole for post-work drinks, wine enthusiasts, and anyone else looking to enjoy the good things in life.

MG5

American-style streetfood

American eats such as juicy burgers, fried chicken, and loaded fries can be found on the menu at this rock joint on Magasinsgatan. Gather friends and family for a hearty streetfood dinner, or just drop by to enjoy the lively atmosphere. The whole place is imbued with a love of music, with the decor mainly consisting of album covers, instruments, and the odd disco ball.

Hjällbo Pizzeria

Well-known falafel joint

Hjällbo's bus stop has become a popular destination for those looking to indulge in freshly fried falafel at what may just be the most generous prices in town. In addition to the crispy balls, served with a variety of accompaniments, there are also options like chicken kebab and a renowned shawarma pizza.

Project

Ambitious restaurant project

Opening in 2016, it didn't take many years before Project was awarded a Michelin star. Behind this fine dining restaurant are married couple Anna and Cameron, who have created a menu with unique dishes and delicate flavours, presented by professional staff. The fact that the bread takes a full five days to make, and the butter two, speaks volumes about the level of ambition here. Despite the elegant tone, there's a relaxed living room feel, with subdued colours, leather furniture, crystal chandeliers, and patterned wallpapers.

SK Mat & Människor

Seasonal luxury

In a former glassworks, restaurateur Stefan Karlsson now runs this Michelin-starred restaurant focusing on Swedish ingredients that change with the seasons. At SK Mat & Människor, you can choose between the chef's table and the open dining room, where you can watch the chefs prepare the food. Create your own menu from the à la carte selection, or try one of the set menus with four or six courses. For an extraordinary experience, you can book a cooking class with one of the restaurant's chefs.

28+

Michelin-starred restaurant with a wide selection of drinks

The kitchen uses seasonal produce, with a focus on using organic ingredients as much as possible. The restaurant also boasts one of Gothenburg's best-stocked wine cellars, as well as an extensive collection of whiskies.

Bulot

Swedish-French

A relaxed vibe in a neo-bistro style prevails at this culinary venture from chef duo Gabriel Melin Anderson and Emil Bielke.

Guests can also freely choose from a selection of small dishes and snacks from the à la carte menu, perfect for pairing with wine. In addition to the dining room, the restaurant includes two outdoor seating areas, one of which is in a large courtyard.

Koka

Plant kingdom in focus

Koka has been awarded Restaurant of the Year and honoured with a Michelin star. The entire place is permeated with a passion for food, drink, and the West Coast. There's also a strong awareness of the environment, with an emphasis on plant-based foods rather than animal products. Tasting menus consist of four, five, or seven courses, and can be paired with wines from small-scale and organic vineyards. 

Ankarsmedjan Social

Friday lunch in historic surroundings

Ankarsmedjan doesn't serve lunch every day, but when they do, they don't mess about. In a 18th-century listed building, they offer interactive cooking evenings and a food club. On Fridays every other week, guests can enjoy a three-course long lunch. The menu varies, but the atmospheric environment is always the same.
