The world has changed since Fiskekrogen opened its doors for the first time in 1972, but we continue to serve the finest seafood to all our guests who visit us year after year.
An imposing stone building
Niclas Sahlgren moves in
Olof Wijk purchases the plot
In 1804, a fierce fire ravaged Gothenburg and the Utfallska house was also laid in ruins. The plot was deserted for over 50 years before Commerce Councilor Olof Wijk bought it at auction. He commissioned the same architect who designed the Fishing Church, Lieutenant Wictor von Gregerfelt, to design a four-storey house. Construction began in 1851 and was completed two years later. The house housed Olof Wijk’s office and a parade floor for representation, but also served as a home for the family and household staff. For over 70 years, the house was inherited by the Wijk family. In 1925, the last heir Hjalmar Wijk sold the property to an insurance company.

Fish interest as a clear thread
Co-captain at the helm
Theodor Ahlström has since childhood been able to help at his father’s restaurant to fillet fish and roll cod buns. After studies and a few years at sea as a sea captain, Theodor decided in 2016 to change direction and chose to drive Fiskekrogen forward alongside his father. A new chapter in the restaurant’s history began.
Fêskens bar – EnjoyBar, simplicity at its best
In 2020, the idea of something new was born. A food bar with a changing menu, smaller dishes and a good atmosphere – A EnjoyBar. In October 2020, the new bar was opened with a new concept and quickly became popular among Gothenburgers.
“The best from the sea” – Into the future
