The new Restaurant Sallt (Swe) External link, opens in new window. has opened its doors (May 2020). Just a stone’s throw away from the old location and with views as lovely as ever overlooking Kattegat with the sea and Tylön in sight.

Söderfamiljenn (Swe) External link, opens in new window. – a small family-run neighbourhood pub on the riverbank of Nissan offers great atmosphere and food inspired by what nature has to offer at any given moment.
