your own facilities.
Restaurants (Blue numbers)
Mediterranean folks please note: Most restaurants typically
CLOSE their kitchens at 22:00!
- Le Parc
Kostis' comment: Edible food and nice place to sit outdoors if the
weather is good. Other than that, nothing special on the menu.
- Svenssons Krog + Bakficka
Kostis' comment: An above average restaurant offering some
nice pasta dishes and a deer specialty.
- Svenssons Taverna
Richard's comment: Specialty: very good (and large)
pizzas, semi-deep-pan style.
- Taverna Akropolis
Kostis' comment: Pretty decent Greek food (for Sweden, that is).
Only indoors sitting.
- Trattoria Comedia
Richard's comment: Fine Italian restaurant.
Kostis' comment: Nice decor, decent and tasty food, but
probably an insult to restaurants in Italy to describe
it as "fine" Italian restaurant...
- Alex Vinbar & Kök (Hotel Linné)
Kostis' comment: Offers the best selection of wines you can
find anywhere in Uppsala. Beware, the prices per glass
are ridiculous. Prices for dishes are OK though.
Kostis' comment: Traditional and tasty Swedish cuisine.
Recommended if you want Swedish food and the weather
allows sitting outside.
Closed on Mondays
- 1 & 1
Ö. Ågatan 11
- Svenssons Grill
Kostis' comment: A typical grill place. Tables are next
to the river offering a nice view. A bit on the
expensive side considering its quality. Unless you
really want grilled stuff or you want to sit outside,
restaurant #2, which belongs to the same owner, is
probably a better choice.
S:t Eriks torg 8
Kostis' comment: This is a Greek restaurant located in very
nice, old, impressive premises (must see actually!).
The food served is OK but nothing special. Food-wise,
there are better alternatives; premise-wise, none.
S:t Eriksgränd 15
Kostis' comment: A very classy Swedish restaurant.
Traditional Swedish dishes served here in a nice
environment. Probably the most expensive restaurant
on this list. Recommended, if you can afford it.
- Hambergs Fisk
Fyris Torg 8
Kostis' comment: The best fish restaurant in Uppsala (and
among the best in Sweden!). A bit on the expensive side.
The place to go if you want to eat fish or
Jesper's comment: This is a fishy place...
Nedre Slottsg. 2
Kostis' comment: I consider it the best restaurant in Uppsala!
(It is considered among the best in Sweden.)
Very nice and tasty Swedish cuisine. A bit expensive but
not ridiculously so and probably worth it.
Övre Slottsg. 12
Kostis' comment: The Greek restaurant in Uppsala with
the least kitsch-y decor. Considering that it is
located in Sweden and not in Greece, the food is quite
decent. Recommended for those that like "Greek food".
- Atlantis World Kitchen + East West
Kostis' comment: Atlantis is the restaurant of Radisson Hotel.
Nouvelle cuisine is mostly served here (in proper
portions, though). A bit on the expensive side but
recommended. East West is a Swedish/Uppsala version
of TGI Fridays. Also recommended.
Kostis' comment: No comment - I've never eaten here!
Jesper's comment: How did this end up in the list?
- Burger King
Kostis' comment: No comment here either...
(This is the restaurant where we have lunches.)
St. Torget 1
Richard's comment: Nice pub food and good beer. Fish 'n
Kostis' comment: The place in Uppsala with the biggest
beer and whisky selection. Other than that,
a typical Irish pub. You know what you should expect.
Richard's comment: Good pasta and pizza restaurant.
Kostis' comment: Cheap (and quite OK) pasta and pizza
Kostis' comment: See my comment on restaurant #17.
Jesper's comment: Another one?!
- Bill & Bull
Kostis' comment: Nice hip environment. Decent food. OK
- News Café
Kostis' comment: Despite its name, it is mostly a bar.
As such, it offers bar food (burgers, fajitas and such).
- Amazing Thai
Richard's comment: Quite good thai food. Service may be slow.
- China Garden + China River
Kungsg. 55 & 57
Richard's comment: China River is a quite decent chinese
restaurant. Specialty: szechuan and indonesian. China Garden
have a decent buffet.
- Wing Sing
Indonesian, Chinese, Thai, Mongolian Barbecue
- Dragon Palace
Richard's comment: The best chinese restaurant in town
(according to some). Also has a separate sushi bar nextdoor.
Ö. Ågatan 59
Kostis' comment: The Greek restaurant in Uppsala with
the most kitsch-y interior decor. If the weather is
good and you can sit outside, go there: the "Greek
dishes" are edible and the menu includes nice,
inexpensive pizzas. Otherwise don't.
Kostis' comment: Yet another Greek restaurant with a less
kitsch-y decor. Same recommendation as above, except
that you will not find pizzas on the menu.
Kostis' comment: Same as above, but the interior decoration
is Swedish kitsch-y; not Greek kitsch-y. Typical
Swedish menu with Swedish prices.
Cafés (Red numbers)
NOTE: Most cafés typically close at 18:00.
Richard's comment: A classic since 1887.
- Café Linné
Richard's comment: Famous for their huge cinnamon buns (but not for much else).
Richard's comment: Hip and personal place where they care
(However, it's small, often crowded, and service can be slow.)
- Café Lion
Richard's comment: Makes you feel like the old geezer that you are.
Richard's comment: Nice place with an ecological profile.
Richard's comment: Old-style swedish café. Good
cakes/pastries and light food.
- Güntherska Hovkonditoriet
Richard's comment: Making very nice cakes and pastries by
Richard's comment: Specialty: home made ice cream.
- Konditori Fågelsången
Richard's comment: Nice café by the bird pond.
Bars (Green numbers)
Godsmagasinet, Östra station
Richard's comment: Nice bar, often with live music. Food
ok, but small servings.
Kostis' comment: Ditto.
- Nope, Uppsala does not have only one bar. Many restaurants
also serve as bars.
From the list above 1,
2, 3, 6, 10, 16, 19, 20, 23, 24, and 31. Enjoy!
- Most places have menus in English, and those that do not, have
waiters that speak English.
- Only Swedish currency is accepted. However, most restaurants
accept credit cards (VISA & MasterCard).
- You do NOT have to leave a tip (it is included in the prices,
which also include taxes).
Some sort of small rounding (e.g. bill of 187 SEK ==> leave
190 SEK or 200 if very satisfied) is recommended.
