Marstrand is a seaside locality situated in Kungälv Municipality, Västra Götaland County, Sweden. It had 1,319 inhabitants in 2010. The town got its name from its location on the island Marstrandsön. Marstrand is, despite its small population, for historical reasons often still referred to as a city (today however, Statistics Sweden, only counts localities with more than 10,000 inhabitants as cities). Recently the town has expanded to the neighbouring island Koön, which has bridge access to the mainland.

We visited friends in Gothenburg in December and had the good fortune to be treated to a Christmas smorgasbord at this place. The food and atmosphere were terrific. The many herring dishes were best we have ever tasted and as for the smoked eel,what a treat. The whole evening was wonderful and would love to return one day

From the outside the restaurant does not look that special, but once inside the experience begins. The back garden patio is just wonderful. Shared appetizers of scallops on asparagus risotto, and seared tuna on avocado. The first dish was simply spectacular. The second really good and another signature of head chef Richard Waje fusion-inspiration. Had the daily special turbot for main course, served with potato pure, fried turbot sides (the edges close to the fins), a Chablis sauce, a vegetable pure, and grilled onions. Hands down the best fish dish ever. While other restaurants on the island keep pushing out overpriced "classics", Richard keep reinventing the menu so that you feel inspired sitting down opening it. Service is casual but attentive. Highly recommended. Btw - Our 7-year old liked the marguerite-pizza, but not the virgin mojito, and sealed it off with a very resonably priced kids ice cream for a fantastic experience.

Ideally situated on the waterfront with excellent views and outdoor Seating. Stoped here for lunch which is served from 12-3 it was quite busy but still managed to get a table.
Food, Caesar salad and fish and chips were both excellent and very tasty. Service was quick and friendly too. Obviously geared around a higher class of customer I think for example passing yacht crews. Having said that we felt very welcome and would definitely recommend the restaurant.

At restaurant Vatten , you can come to satiate the stomach or quench the thirst - all year round. Our favorite ingredients are fish and shellfish . Naturally , since we are located right in the Bohuslän archipelago . Here are options also for those who prefer meat, or rather eat vegetarian. Whatever you choose , we want to ensure you have a memorable moment in the middle of an amazing landscape. Welcome!
This restuarant has a stunning view over the water at the island of Tjørn. We had lunch where you could choose between fish, soup and vegetarian of the day all organic dishes.
We choose fish and was nicely prepared, fresh and with good taste.
All in all a good experience, reasonable price and beatiful location

the stores are scattered all around Guteborg area
This day is a national holiday so many coffee shops opened later than usual. Jerkstrands in Gothenburg was opening as we walked by at about 9.00 and so we stopped for coffee and croissants. There is Seating both inside and on the pavement. As far as we could see there is no at table service. The interior has all the signs of being 'designed' with quite a lot of different genres - a bit of a jumble. The welcome is friendly, the coffee was good, and the croissants were fresh. There was a variety of breads on sale, and some delicious looking cakes. With reference to a previous review, the man in the picture still works there, but he only gave us current currency in our change.

Swedish flavors dominate the menus at Ottos Kök. It will come as no surprise that fish and seafood is on the menu but there is something for all tastes. We would be delighted if you took a moment to look at the dishes we serve when you sit down to dine. We realise that this isn't always all that easy when you are sitting just a few metres away from the quayside, with some of the finest views imaginable for you to enjoy. When dining outside, you'll be dazzled not only by the view but also the evening sun and sunset.
We had dinner twice here since we stayed at the hotel. Food was well prepared and service friendly. The first nights they didn't have the first 3 choices of bottles of wine on the card. We got our fourth choice. Which we were offered for free which was kind. The next evening we where more lucky and got the third choice which was put on our bill. Different staff.

Johan's Krog is located in the middle of Old Marstrand, just below the historic fortress. The restaurant is a Marstrand classic! No visit to Marstrand will be complete without at least one dinner at Johan's - preferably on the upstairs Terrace with a great overview of the little square. The menu offers great variety and the dishes are superb! Very friendly service adds to the great atmosphere and the entire dining experience! Downstairs, Johan's keep the bar open long into the night, and when you you are done there, why not enjoy a game of Boule outdoor in the sand of the central square? All in all a very enjoyable evening with lots of charms and ambience is guaranteed at Johan's Krog!

This restaurant had a nice menu, not as overpriced as the restaurants on the opposite side of the water, and with fresh local seafood. I had the mussels and they were delicious! My friend had the shrimp Sandwich, it was good but could have been a bit bigger. The staff is friendly and was great with the kids, the kids menu was good with enough food to feed a hungry nine-year old. It was a relaxed atmosphere with possibilities to sit both outside and inside. Having a meal at a restaurant with four children can be challenging, but since there was a lot to see from our outside table, child-fiendly staff and good food, we had a very nice dinner. Thanks!

We went here a lovely warm Friday evening as the restaurant had a barbecue special happening.
Nice starters nicely presented and great taste (oyster, sill and 2 others each).
4 barbecue dishes : 3 meat and 1 fish all great and generously portions. To this we had a buffet with various salads ans side dishes - from wich you could take as much as you wanted.
The dessert seamed to get smaller and smaller the later it got but it tasted great (Swedish strawberries with homemade ice cream).
Several nice wines but a bit expensive I must say.
Very friendly and services minded staff
A great evening but a little too expensive for what you got especially wine.
