Visit Sweden has placed seven tables on Sweden's seven most beautiful nature sites. One of the tables is on Ramsvik. The table is placed directly on the smooth rocks furthest out on the northern tip of the island. The view from the edge of the table is of the grey/pink granite outcrops, and an open sea as far as the eye can see. A stone’s throw from the table is Tångevik, which once was a busy stone cutting community.
Anyone is welcome to use the table to enjoy a lovely outdoor lunch or a “fika” or why not have a dinner at sunset. The table is a 10 minute walk from Ramsvik Stugy & Camping.
Book the table
The table can be booked on Fridays from May to September (starting 24 May). There are 12 places round the table and it can be booked by two parties at the same time.
Booking the unique table on Ramsvikslandet in Bohuslän, presents you with a fabulous combination - nature’s own ingredients, salt sprayed aromas, and smooth sea rocks.
Ramsvikslandet’s nature reserve in Sotenäs county has, not without good reason, become known as the kingdom of the rocks.
Food from the sea
Here on the west coast fish and shellfish reign supreme. Around 90 percent of Sweden’s oysters are harvested in West Sweden, and it’s from here that most of the herring, mackerel, prawns, crayfish , mussels and lobsters eaten in Sweden come from.
The menu when you book a table at Ramsvik consists of a proper classic Swedish summer dish – herring and potatoes. The recipe was put together by top chef Thomas Sjögren, who clearly knows that good food doesn’t need to be complicated. Thomas won the prestigious title of Cook of the Year 2015, and amongst other things runs Skärets Krog restaurant in Smögen.
A paradise for walkers
Out on the kingdom of the rocks you don’t just find pink granite boulders, there are also several walking trails. You can go on hikes here from 1.5 up to 16 km long, edged by devil’s cauldrons, open coastal meadows and potentially one of this coastline’s most Instagram friendly sea views. The popular Soteleden Trail also makes a detour out on Ramsvik.
