At the restaurant Vrå, Japanese cuisine with Swedish produce, is served


The restaurant Vrå serves sushi and raw food in a cozy and exclusive environment at the Clarion Hotel Post. The restaurant is small-scale, has room for around 40 guests and with carefully selected details gives a feeling of Japan, on the square Drottningtorget in Gothenburg. Vrå serves seasonal chef’s choice-dishes as well as a four- and seven-course menu that is advantageously combined with sake.

The restaurant runs a solid sustainability work where the entire menu is sustainable and traceable. The fish and shellfish come from wild stocks or from farmers they know. They get the vegetables from the hotel’s rooftop gardens or nearby organic farms, and the meat comes from breeders who let the animals live as naturally as possible.
