In Skanörs Harbour, as far southwest in Sweden as you can go, you will find SKANÖRS FISKRÖGERI (Skanör's Smokehouse), which is both a deli and a restaurant. The deli is filled with smoked salmon, pickled herring, fish and seashell paté, shrimp, clams and lots of other goodies from the sea! The restaurant also has a menu focused on fish and seafood, and some of it is brought in directly by the local fisherman. You can also find other dishes that are not inspired by the ocean. When the weather is nice, you can sit on our lovely terrace. Skanör is only a 20 minutes drive from the Øresund bridge. From the beginning of June until the end of August, they are open every day, all day long. You are warmly welcome!
