Sjömagasinet

Sjömagasinet is a must-visit if you’re looking for a gastronomic seafood experience in a unique environment.

Sjömagasinet is located in an old warehouse for the East India Company, dating back to the 18th century. The restaurant is run by Ulf Wagner, awarded Swedish restaurateur of the year in 2016, and his head chef Gustav Trägårdh, awarded Swedish chef of the year in 2010. Both are renowned chefs with long experiences of creating gastronomic experiences. Wagner aims to provide a “total dining experience” meaning that the food, beverages and spiritual fulfillment are equally important at this restaurant. 

The restaurant is located right by the waterfront of Göta älv river, creating a relaxing sea side atmosphere with beautiful views. They serve freshly caught seafood in both classic and innovative ways, such as baked halibut, truffle hake with red wine sauce and delicious lobster soup. The menu varies daily depending on what ingredients are available and everything is cooked with seasonal produce for a guaranteed fine dining experience.
