  • A market where to find every good things cooked, raw fish but also to take away and eating at home or, if not so cold, on wooden tables available outside. Experience not to be missed!

  • The place for friends at lunchtime. The fish is perfect and the hipster service is great. Don't miss it! 
  • Apparently it is typical of Gothenburg humour to call a place like this a fish church. It is indeed full of many forms of fish - especially but not exclusively herring
