"We want there to be something for everyone. From elegant three-course meals in the restaurant to simpler menus in our bars and cafés."

"Our guests appreciate the freedom of choice that we provide,” Kristina Hauge, the restaurant manager, continues. "The fact that the food to a large extent is organic has met with a very positive response."

Almost 40 percent of the groceries that are purchased for the Göteborg Opera's kitchen are organic or locally produced. This makes for a vibrant menu with seasonal variation.

Welcome to SommarVerandan at the Göteborg Opera, 10 Jun–17 Aug

Bakgrund Sommarverandan

SommarVerandan is the Göteborg Opera’s outdoor café, with a first-class location along Södra Älvstranden. On cloudless days the sun shines over the veranda right up until dusk. With the opera house as a backdrop and boats on Göta Älv for drama, you can lean back, enjoy fine drinks and our summer menu composed from the finest seasonal ingredients. We offer lunch, dinner and simpler fare. The restaurant has tables both outdoors and indoors.
