I came to Lingon for dinner, upon asking where one can eat great Swedish meatballs or kotbüllar. I was not disappointed. Located centrally, Lingon is a super cute Swedish restaurant with the cozy feel of a log cabin. Even on a Tuesday night it was well full, thus I recommend making a prior reservation. As regards the food: the meatballs... More

It's a nice spot, overlooking the river with a shaded terrace. We had a shrimp sandwich and meatballs. They were OK but nothing special. Meatballs and mash rather cold. Good range of bottled beers, including some English. Even for Sweden, this was an expensive meal: at half the price I would have been quite happy, as it was it seemed... More

What can I say? I used to have better experiences in this restaurant. However, this time, cod was served with some horrible sauce with disgusting flavor. I'll give it one more try, but, for now, the restaurant is classified as "not good for my taste".

Went to Lingon for lunch. It is clearly overpriced, small portions and with a side salad consisting only of green leaves... Worst of all was that the food was cold. Cold cooked potatoes and cold fish! No- it was not sushi... The waiters seem stressed out, impatient and did not smile once or at least stand still while taking the... More

Some friends that live in Uppsala and have been at the restaurant a couple of times before wanted to take us here for dinner. Our friend booked the restaurant with the condition of not eating at the terrace. When we arrived (5ºC aprox outside) and asked about the reservation and the fact of eating inside they said our freind didn't... More

I had been 2 times before at Lingon and I liked the food and service. Now I had 8 visitors and I wanted to show them a restaurant with typical Swedish food in a cosy wooden house. Note that they have a service outdoors and indoors (wooden house). I decided to book a table at Lingon indoors so I sent... More

This was my first time visit to Sweden. One of my colleagues suggested me to try the food here for some good Swedish food. Staff is friendly. I had the Swedish meatballs with the recommended admirals ale. Very good, home pickled cucumbers and lingonberries complemented the creamy (it was extremely tasty and rich) brown sauce and juicy meatballs. One downside... More

Four of us went to Lingon for dinner on the advice of the concierge at our hotel. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere, and we had excellent service. I had a carpaccio appetizer (which was first rate) and Biff Rydberg for the main course. The beef dish was tasty but it was not very warm by the time it... More

Took a group of eight here but perhaps a dinner review would be fairer for the place as the lunch menu is a bit sad to be honest. Three choices salmon, bacon and beef patty all with potatoes and a big bowl of salad to serve yourself from. Not really what I was expecting considering the reviews and comments from... More

I have been here with some collegues from work while we were in Uppsala. We had a recommendation for this restaurant from the hotel staff. The place is very nice and cozy, you do get the relaxed Swedish atmosphere. The manager/owner/waiter (he did all these!) had a nice deep voice, one you won’t forget! He is very kind (but who... More
