The most elegant and atmospheric restaurant in town, Sjömagasinet is located near the Novotel in the western suburb of Klippan, about 4km (2 1/2 miles) from the center. The building, erected in 1775, was originally a warehouse, and today it retains its low-ceilinged, heavily timbered sense of rustic craftsmanship of a bygone age. Amid dozens of nautical artifacts from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, you can have predinner drinks in either of two separate bars, one of them outfitted in a cozy, English colonial style.
Only the freshest of seafood is served, from lightly salted cod filled with a truffle-and-cauliflower cream, to a platter containing three different preparations of salmon, to shrimp-stuffed crepes with dill, to shellfish with curry sauce, to poached filet of sole with crayfish, to a succulent house version of bouillabaisse. Our favorite dishes are the pot-au-feu of fish and shellfish, served with a chive-flavored crème fraîche, and the poached filet of halibut with a warm cabbage salad and potato salad.
