Styrsö Skäret Guesthouse, Gothenburg, Sweden

Swedish waters near Gothenburg

When I visited Gothenburg, Sweden last year I had a beautiful lunch at a cute little guesthouse called Styrsö Skäret. I was part of a group. Together with other participants of the conference we went on a boat trip to a small group of islands just about 30 minutes from the mainland.

It’s a kind of island hopping until you reach the place. The boat ride was extremely pleasant, the islands, which we passed, very picturesque. Only today I am able to post the story.

The beautiful Styrsö Skäret guesthouse

Styrsö Skäret is a guesthouse with restaurant, and we were booked in for lunch. The meal was pre-ordered. It started with a pumpkin soup.

The soup

The main course

The main course consisted of boiled potatoes with some capsicum veggies and a white fish. Awesome flavours, earthy but refined and delicate.

Delicious fish

The dining room

fro the dining room you have a beautiful view of the see. When we were there some clouds came up and we had some rain with a rainbow after. That was magic.

The wine cabinet

There was the possibility to order wine which I did not do because I followed the group somehow and just had water with the meal. Do not follow my example. Order a bottle of white wine, maybe a Chardonnay or a Sauvignon Blanc if you have the fish.

The service is very good, the ambiance is very pleasant, and the people are very friendly. My verdict: must visit when in Gothenburg. Highly recommended.

After your meal you can have a long walk on the island on hop on the ferry at some other pier. There are beautiful country houses to be seen, gardens surrounding the dwellings, and from almost every point you can overlook the sea.

This was such a wonderful excursion. I highly recommend the trip. If you are in Gothenburg take the time and visit the islands and treat yourself to a decent meal at Styrsö Skäret.
