In the heart of the historic district of Lorensberg lies the restaurant Familjen. Opened in 2009 by restaurateur Björn Persson, Familjen in Gothenburg intends to form an extension of your living room, with warmth, love and friendliness as the foundations.

Relying on the finest local produce, Familjen’s menu consists of hearty yet modern dishes from western Sweden. Familjen has devised various menus for evening meals or family dinners, and there is also the option of choosing select items from the menu. The restaurant Familjen collaborates with local farmers, fishmongers and meat producers, ensuring seasonal and regional produce sets the tone.

While primarily European, the wine list offers a wide range of wines from across the globe. Their expert sommeliers are more than keen to share their recommendations for your meal, and the existence of a list of rare high quality bottles of wine never fails to please wine aficionados. Stylishly designed with a red and white colour scheme, the rugs and family portraits add an extra dimension to Familjen.

In 2010, 2011 and 2012, Familjen was granted a BIB Gourmand from the Michelin Guide. The nearest tram stop is Götaplatsen, a two-minute walk from Familjen.

    Det var en kulinarisk opplevelse, alt fra mottakelse da vi ankom restauranten, med å ønske oss velkommen. Ta jakkene våres og hang dem opp , viste oss til et romantisk fint bord. Servitørene var veldig service mindeed. Og spesielt ei som hette Ida( som hadde arbeidet i Norge i mange år) var veldig flinke. Vi fikk anbefalt god mat, som smakte fantastisk . Vi spiste div utvalgte oster til forett, og "Sjømannsbiff" til hovedrett, med en god rødvin til. Alt var veldig bra. Prisen var også grei. Takk for oss. Her kommer vi gjerne tilbake .

    Trevlig restaurang för er som uppskattar god mat och bra service. Menyn består av spännande rätter med fina råvaror. Köket skulle kunna jobba lite mer med presentationen men smakerna sitter bra.

    This restaurant is an amazing find. I was planning a trip to Sweden and decided to book this restaurant and I'm so glad I did.
    We arrived on time however our table wasn't ready yet but that wasn't an issue for us we hanged up our coats and waited 10 minutes to be seated.

    The restaurant was warm and cosy and the atmosphere was even better. We had a wonderful waitress which I'm disappointed that I didn't get her name as I would have given her some acknowledgment but she was blonde and very kind and helpful.

    The drink selection is great and it's true their cocktails are to die for. The food was my least favourite I had a potato and leek soup with cheese which I would give a 6/10 for however I picked the pork for mains and that was beautiful the meat was cooked to perfection.

    The price of this restaurant is brilliant and you don't have to feel that you have to break the bank to have a wonderful meal.

    I would definitely suggest this place if you go to the wonderful city of gothenburg.
