Lisa Elmquist (1926) is a Stockholm institution – I have eaten here several times over the years and it is ALWAYS a pleasure. A must do for pescatarians and foodies.
Here you eat fish and husmanskost directly from the frozen sales counter to you table. Ambiance is noisy, lively. Food is good and fantastic in freshness and taste although not necessarily presented fanatically or invented recently.
Saluhall is Swedish for food market and Østermalm’s is a must visit for tourist in Stockholm… just beware of opening hours. as it is a lunch place with Sundays closed.
|Østermalm foodmarket (Saluhall)|
|Fish counter at Melanders… see later review|
|Organized and great selections in the hall|
|Displays with care|
|Lunch time open sandwiches on display|
|This is what we came for – Wärdshuset Lisa Elmquist|
|Bread basket… Fresh.. but not so interesting today as we are saving appetite|
|Some @ our table (5/6) choose the Vendace Roe (Løjrom)|
|I have a Toast Skagen|
|2010 Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand|
|Great service from Richard – The queen and Jesper are happy – Thanks|
|Witch in butter, beetroot and capers|
|The Fish soup – impressed Carl|
|Cured Salmon and dill potatoes|
|Lunch done – More displays when leaving|
|Girolles (Kantaraller) – In season and very very delicious|
What can I say: We left happy, full and recharged for more adventures, friend Jesper had just joined us 2 hours earlier and now he had an idea what we were up to. The Queen had been back to her long time favorite.. the princess paid 🙂
Next door Gerda’s fish has different Cloths and personnel, but it is the same kitchen.. It was only taken over 30 years ago and some things are better left unchanged!
- A return to Mrs. Elmquist is always a delight
- Service extremely effecient
- Presentation is not key, fresh fish is!
- Generous portions
- A must when visiting Stockholm
