Lisa Elmqvist is an experience for the real foodies among us, situated as it is at the centre of Saluhallen, the most impressive food market in Stockholm. You could spend most of the morning here salivating over everything from the freshest fish to the most decadent chocolate cake, before settling down to eat.
Since it is less a restaurant than a place to enjoy the smells and tastes of everything around you, it is hard to say whether you are best off sticking with a simple plate of gravadlax or going full pelt into enormous portions of sole or sea bass. Whatever you choose, the highest quality is guaranteed.
Eating here is not a formal affair; be prepared to share your table with a couple of other diners if your party doesn’t fill all the chairs, since this place is too popular for the management to grant privacy. Prices vary according to market forces – this is not Wedholms Fisk, although you wouldn’t know it from the standard of the food.
