Sillen & Makrillen

Sillen & Makrillen is located right at the water's edge with an incredible view of Denmark and the strait.

At the restaurant, the delicacies of the sea are the focus and the menu varies according to each season.


At Kigo, you get to experience eating Asian-inspired food with completely Swedish ingredients as a base. The restaurant suits both food geeks, neighborhood regulars and those who want to celebrate something. In a short time, Kigo has become the favorite of the citizens of Helsingborg and in 2020 they won the award for the best restaurant in Skåne.

Barrica Mat & Vinbar

At Barrica, you are greeted by a lively and moderately messy atmosphere with good laughs, like in a back street in Barcelona. The restaurant serves everything from grilled meat to typical Swedish tapas. You get a quick trip to more southern latitudes when you visit the restaurant.

As there is an open kitchen at Barrica Mat & Vinbar, the aromas of grilled meat and salt-sprinkled seafood can be felt throughout the premises.
