Visit for delicious Swedish food!

The food was delicious, very well presented and well balanced. We had the reindeer which was worth its price. But the wine was overpriced.

Lingon offers outdoor seating with view to the river. It also has convenient heaters to warm you up when the weather is a little cold. Food is really excellent, a great sample of Swedish cuisine.

Had seafood patties with potato puree and green veg - it was all very tasty, although the patties were quite dense in texture. The butter/oil dressing the dish certainly made it delicious, but perhaps a little heavy by the end. My colleague ate halloumi with rice, and said it was delicious.

The meatballs and the lamb are both excellent here, and the outdoor seating is great on a nice day (and there's a canopy for when it isn't so nice). The beer and wine selection is also very good. It's definitely worth a visit, at least once if not more in Uppsala.

Had a business partner visit me and wanted to try the best of Uppsala and guess what they were very much impressed. Great food ( traditional swedish meatballs, File of Ox and lamb rack) was lipsmacking and I am thankful for that. Compliments to the chef :)

We had a really nice evening here. A fantastic busy terrace next to the river, good food (not exceptional ) and a nice choice of beers etc Yet most of all Lingon had a nice vibe going on on the terrace which pleased us a lot Will go again !

The food was great. We ate at the Lingon a couple of times. Great Sweedish meatballs and other traditional food. Like most places In Uppsala plan on spending a couple of hours for your dining experience. It's a layed back casual dining experience.

This is the best place to experience savory Swedish meatballs with excellent service! Be aware that American Express Card is not accepted, but that is the ONLY thing I do not like about the Lingon! Afterwards, enjoy your walk around this lovely local neighborhood.

I'm sorry but this restaurant didn't really do it for me. I have heard good things about this place but it was just over-priced with food (we had the artic char and the walleye) that didn't give you value for your money. The char plate was very small, and the walleye just didn't taste good. The staff were however friendly... More
