Smaka is located on the Vasaplatsen, close to the Haga and Nya Allen and is one of the best restaurants for Swedish food in Gothenburg without having to re-mortgage your house. Restaurant Smaka has a very traditional Swedish menu and also a popular bar with high ceilings and very personal touch. The relaxed personal (friendly but not superfast) makes it easy to enjoy the dinner. This place has a high ranking on tripadvisor and therefore it is crowded tourist – and I understand them since its menu has everything the swedish kitchen has to offer at very reasonable prices.

On the menu you will of course find Meatballs, which is the most asked for dish by tourist. Smaka makes them with a special twist which was very good. Smaka is not a touristy restaurant like those on the main avenue (just 100m away). It has local cuisine that is consistently excellent. Also try the elk burger and deer file.

Smakas versions of a smorgasbord

A big starter is the swedish miniature smorgasbord. Instead I went for the shrimp sandwich which was loaded with fresh shrimp. Perfect with one of the local beers

As a starter I recommend the oysters just out of the waters from the swedish west coast

Smakas Fish Gratin also come highly recommended by the waiter

All in all – The atmosphere in Smaka was buzzing, the staff were friendly, smiling and provided excellent service. It was quite noisy so not a place for a quiet tête-à-tête but it felt like everyone was having a great night out. I guess its the kind of place you go for a meal and stay for drinks…if not there are plenty of good bars close by.
