Opening Hours 🕒

Viktors Kaffe

Geijersgatan 7, Gothenburg, Sweden

Are you down to fika? Viktors Kaffe is the place to have a fika (coffee + something to eat) in Gothenburg! If you’re looking for specialty coffee, Viktors Kaffe has the best coffee in town! From the brunch menu, we loved the open-faced sandwich with lox, cream cheese, horseradish, pickled, dill & capers, as well as the poached egg and avocado sandwich on brioche, with sriracha sauce. Juicy, creamy, buttery, and not too spicy.


Geijersgatan 12, Gothenburg, Sweden

As you might have guessed from the name, Natur is a great place to grab a glass of natural wine in Gothenburg. We enjoyed an orange wine from Valentina Passalacqua, and a juicy, light red from Foradori. We didn’t try any of the savory dishes on this visit, but we did have a delicious raspberry tart from the dessert menu!

Bar La Lune

Vasa kyrkogata 1, Gothenburg, Sweden

The wine, the food, the vibe – Bar La Lune is a little piece of Paris in Sweden. This natural wine bar was our favorite hangout in Gothenburg, a place we’d be regulars at if we lived in the city. So many of our favorite wines (Gut Oggau and Serragghia, to name a couple), delectable small plates, and a fun vibe! Some standout dishes for us included the pork fat and duck liver rillette with pickles on toasted bread, the galette du Provence with herb salad and Parmesan cream, and the chicken liver mousse on grilled bread. Wow!

Trattoria La Strega

Aschebergsgatan 23B, Gothenburg, Sweden

Even though Trattoria La Strega is an old school, authentic Italian trattoria, the restaurant owner, Andrea Consonni, is obsessed with natural wines. On our last visit, he had a couple of favorites on the list: Lammidia’s “Panda” and “Emma” from Marco Buratti, both delicious, juicy, tart, funky and fun orange wines. On the food side, don’t miss the signature pasta dish with pappardelle and king crab.


Viktoriagatan 12, Gothenburg, Sweden

Modern Swedish restaurant Koka is a semi-casual fine dining restaurant with one Michelin star, that serves a New Nordic tasting menu based on local and seasonal ingredients from the west of Sweden. Standout dishes on our last visit included the carrots with goat cheese, marigold, and quinoa, and the beef with string beans and coriander. Added bonus: the wines are mostly natural!


Vasagatan 32, Gothenburg, Sweden

Chef Thomas Sjögren and his brother Christoffer run restaurant Grano, which specializes in a thin crust, crispy style of sourdough pizza. When testing a new pizza place, we always go for a simpler and more classic pie. Thus, the natural choice for us was their take on a Margherita, with tomato, garlic, basil, and a whole sphere of burrata in the center. We'd come back for the pizza, but we also loved their small plates, especially the silky smooth potato cream with brown butter, white onion, dill & Kalix "löjrom." Ridiculously good!

Hotel Bellora

Kungsportsavenyen 6, Gothenburg, Sweden

Ciao bella! We loved all the cute design details at Hotel Bellora in Gothenburg, from the floral wallpaper to the silk sleep masks and Italian candies left in your room. There’s unlimited free coffee in the lobby, a state-of-the-art gym complete with a boxing ring (!), and the cutest rooftop bar with a sweeping view of the city! The hotel is located right in the city center, so we were within walking distance to everything we wanted to check out.

Tugg Burgers

Drottninggatan 21, Gothenburg, Sweden

We are always on the hunt for the best burger in every city we visit. In Gothenburg we were recommended Tugg Burgers, which was pretty good if you’re looking for hangover food, but a little too greasy and fatty to be a top level burger for us. Still, when those burger cravings hit...


Norra Hamngatan 10, Gothenburg, Sweden

Chefs Gustav Knutsson and Niclas Yngvesson's restaurant Bhoga has held a Michelin star since 2014. This New Nordic restaurant offers great value-for-money tasting menus – choose between a 5-course (SEK 650), 7-course (SEK 800) or 9-course (SEK 900). All wines are natural, organic, and biodynamic wines from small producers.

Da Matteo

Vallgatan 5, Gothenburg, Sweden

After a trip to Italy, owner and founder Matts Johansson was inspired to open Da Matteo, meaning “at Matteo’s place." Although it started as an espresso bar, Da Matteo later helped pave the way for the specialty coffee scene in Gothenburg, characterized by its light-roasted, almost tea-like style of brewing. Today, Da Matteo has a handful of locations, its own roastery, and a bakery.


Feskekôrka, Gothenburg, Sweden

Feskekörka, literally "the fish church," is not a place of worship, but actually a fish market and food hall. On the second floor you'll find restaurant Gabriel, run by the World Champion Oyster Opener 2016 Johan Malm. In addition to oysters, other signatures include the fish soup and a buttery toast with "Skagenröra" (shrimp salad).


Stigbergsliden 17, Gothenburg, Sweden

Restaurant Hoze is Gothenburg's smallest restaurant with only six seats. Sit down at Chef José Cerdá's sushi counter and prepare for a one-man show – two if you count his dad, Gabriel Cerdá, who helps out as a waiter, and three if you include their dog who guards the door. Enjoy a masterfully executed Nordic-Japanese tasting menu with flavors, techniques, and presentations in line with the old Edomae traditions of Japan.

Alkemisten Kaffebar

Gustaf Dalénsgatan 14, Gothenburg, Sweden

Over the bridge from the city center of Gothenburg, in the Kvillebäcken neighborhood, you find the cozy coffee shop Alkemisten. Sit outside if the weather allows, and enjoy one of their V60-brewed coffees.
