VRÅ – Japanese flavours in Gothenburg

Located in the heart of Gothenburg, VRÅ is an award-winning restaurant offering world-class Nordic and Japanese cuisine. Indulge in everything from à la carte to tasting menus, dumplings to local oysters.

Respect for the sea, earth, and craftsmanship

VRÅ shares the Japanese cuisine's respect for the sea, earth, and craftsmanship. Sofia B. Olsson and her colleagues select seasonal ingredients such as fish, oysters, seafood, seaweed, and vegetables from local producers. Here, the Japanese culinary philosophy combines with the bounties of fish and seafood from the Swedish west coast. The taste experience is perfected when the food is paired with beverages from VRÅ's carefully curated list of wines and extensive selection of sake.

A spectacle for all the senses

In the restaurant environment, the old Post Office's original interior design harmonizes with sleek Asian elements. The details of wood, glass, and shiny metal surfaces create an open and elegant atmosphere. As a guest, you have a full view of the open kitchen where you can observe the chefs preparing the food. Restaurant VRÅ is located in the beautiful old Post Office building, which has now been transformed into a hotel – to be precise, Clarion Hotel® Post.

High ambitions and focus on sustainability

VRÅ has a clear vision regarding sustainability. The food on the menu is sustainable, traceable, and organic. In the heart of Gothenburg, you will find a VRÅ with room for everyone. The restaurant is unique, innovative, and award-winning with world-class Nordic and Japanese gastronomy. Here, you can enjoy everything from à la carte and tasting menus to dumplings and hand-picked local oysters. The sustainability ambition applies not only to the restaurant's climate impact but also to gender equality. VRÅ employs more women than most other restaurant kitchens.
