We took the chance and came to the restaurant without a booking. We were asked: "Do you want to sit by the water?" We looked like question marks, but it turned out that we could actually sit by a huge tank with fish in it - and we did. The menu was short and to the point: you could have fish - and fish we had: first a tasty lobster soup and a dish of Norway lobsters au gratin, the main dishes were a very tasty fish stew, a really well combined dish with just a hint of something warm (not hot!), and a perfectly cooked whole Lemon Sole accompanied only with new, small potatoes and some butter, a perfect fish dish. We had a good bottle of white wine with the dishes. It was obvious that both locals and tourists visit this restaurant, and a couple of Japanese families added to the feeling of a restaurant well written of in guidebooks. It was a simple, frills-free, modern and competent kitchen with a young, energetic and knowing staff.

Had a customer lunch there. I had a fisk gryta, very good and tasty. Other meals also looked good. Also very reasonable prices. Can really recommend!

The waiters left us standing by the door for at least 15 minutes because they need to "get the table cleaned", even though we spotted there were quite a lot free tables available and were clean. After we got seated, we ordered 1 seafood platter and 1 rib eye set. However, we ended up waiting for around 30 mins to have the remaining dishes after finishing the seafood platter. It was around 10:30pm by then & the restaurant was not busy at all, so I really don't understand why the waiters kept chatting at the bar even though they saw us waving our hands at them. We then made our way to the bar and told the waiter that we would like to cancel the remaining dishes since we have been waiting for way too long and we kept being ignored. Unsurprisingly, she said sorry ingenuinely and offered to give us a 20% discount, yet charged us more than what we have eaten in the first place (the wrong platter). I was really disappointed by what we experienced today and would definitely not recommend people coming here.

Great affordable seafood restaurant not far from central station
Atmosphere is casual but nice
Wait staff very nice but very overworked the night we visited, only 3 to cover the whole restaurant
Luckily we weren't in a rush, otherwise this would have impacted dinner very negatively

This restaurant is more expensive, but the atmosphere is so fun! We ordered the shrimp boat and got to drive the boat to our table for a shrimp delivery!
