  • Stora Hotellet Umea's Restaurant - Gotthards Krog Dining Room

Gotthard’s restaurant in Stora Hotellet has a bar, dining hall and outdoor dining area in Umeå’s new indoor square. The name celebrates Stora Hotellet’s first hotel manager and restaurateur, Gotthard Zetterberg, a man who sailed on the famous Greenland expedition with Adolf Nordenskiöld. For 18 years Gotthard was Umeå’s master of ceremonies and the link between the impressive hotel and the more everyday seaman’s mission.

At Gotthard’s there is a mix of hotel ballroom and sea adventure. We are a top class restaurant without the pretensions, a relaxed venue for drinking, partying and business.

The building is full of history so history spices up our menu. Many of our dishes have a story to tell, while every story can become a recipe. We like to give classical cooking a special twist so we can combine unique local ingredients with inspiration from the seas, ports and influences of other cultures.

We are open from early in the morning to late at night. A homeport for the people of Umeå and guests from anywhere overseas.
