Love of food and drink and a strong commitment to organic products. This is how we work in the kitchen at The Göteborg Opera.

Dinner at the Göteborg Opera.

The restaurant opens two and a half hours before the curtain rises. If you wish you can eat your starter and main course before the performance and save the coffee and dessert for the interval. We have room for 150 guests and all of the tables have a view of the Göta River.

A small practical but important detail is that the food is always served in good time before the performance so that you can eat at your own pace and without stress. “The guests are here for the food and the performance and they get a fantastic experience,” says Ousienou Mbye, Deputy Restaurant Manager at the Göteborg Opera.

A place where you can eat with a clear conscience.


Since its inception, the Göteborg Opera Restaurant has placed a clear emphasis on developing its environmental philosophy. The environmental work performed has now been affirmed by the most prestigious environmental certification - the Nordic Ecolabel.

The Nordic Ecolabel applies to all operations managed by the Göteborg Opera Restaurant: the restaurant itself, the cafés, bars, kitchen and staff canteen. The Nordic Ecolabel takes into account the entire life cycle of the restaurant operations, from the purchase of raw goods to waste management and everything in between. This means that the food served at The Göteborg Opera is organic, locally sourced and Fair Trade certified, that the cleaning products in the kitchen are the very best from an environmental standpoint and that the use of electricity is controlled and comes from 100% renewable sources.
