Tvåkanten has a nice location on Avenyn, and is cosy and comfortable. It’s possible they had a bad day when we were there, Gothenburg was packed due to a Håkan Hellström concert. The food was good except that it was cold. We took the set menu, and the main course was a nice bit of cod, with “winter cabbage”. The... More

This is the TL; DR version since I don't have room here: Me and hubby were the only 2 people in entire restaurant. Do *NOT* believe that Michelin review as it was from 2007 and I think they've been to afraid to return since. Front End Manager alternately ignored or hid from us (our original server); server #2 ignored us,... More

One of those places that tries to be bit classy but doesn't pull it off. The food was alright but the waiters didn't seem focused and managed to mix up both orders and bills. All in all, we had a rather average experience.

Business dinner! We were 4 and we all had Seafood platters, which is one of the restaurant's signature servings. And signature it was. We had enormous portions of shrimps, crabs, oysters, mussels, shellfish - and more. Very very fresh and delicious. Nice whitewine and mineralwater to assist the pallate. Service also fine. And reasonable priced as well. Enjoyable and recommended!

Tvåkanten is a very nice unformal fine dining restaurant. In the summer they have great seatings outside. The menu is well balanced and the food is perfectly executed and presented. The service is attentive and knowledgable. Great for a light quick dinner, and also for a more formal occasion.

Had a good meal with a group of eight. Atmosphere inside is calm and nice. Sitting in the veranda is a bit more crowded but nice too. The seafood is realy good. Not sure if the extra money fot the two oysters s worth it. Good choice of wines

Nice menu. We were tired and went for the obvious choices: tartar and a burger. But, they were very well made and this restaurant showed that even from a routine dish as a hamburger, with proper attention, something worth eating can be made.

Good broad selection of food and great outdoor seating area to watch all the people wandering up and down the Kungsportsavenyn. The dessert drinks were especially good. Great staff was lots of fun with our large group.
