Situated in "Saluhallen" (the Market Hall) of Uppsala. Very central nice lunch restaurant, especially excellent in fish dishes. Nice atmosphere with neighbouring fish & seafood stall and other shops in the Market Hall.

First server was terse, but the second perfectly friendly. Despite there being no queue and the place being virtually empty, the food was slapped onto the plates with speed and a lack of delicacy. The area itself is always pleasant to visit, sitting outside in summer next to the quietly flowing river is inviting even when it rains. The food... More

This restaurant has a stunning location overlooking river. Its location by Saluhall makes you think that you'll get best food ever. We had salmon which was great, but not as good as it can be for the price you pay. The wine was fine. In general I gave this restaurant 4 points just because of its fantastic location, the food...

We stopped in here to hide from the rain and instantly we were smacked in the nose by the kitchen's cooking. We treated ourselves to the bbq pork roast with veg and salads for the lunch special which came out quick and then sat by the river to enjoy. The food was so good we went back for dinner, enjoying...

The restaurant has a great location, just by the river and right near the chapel so not hard to find. The food is really very good and my pork belly was perfect. My colleague had the salmon but that looked just as good. A number of the dishes were cooked over charcoals which somehow make things taste better. The service... More

Åkanten (riverside in Swedish) is nicely set right in the middle of town with the church and university building right next to it. The ambience in the outside lounge area is really great regardless if you come here for lunch (as we did) or an afternoon drink or dinner. Food met my high expectations and the roast pork belly was... More

We came here for a drink in the afternoon. The location at the waterfront is great and the place looks awesome with its loungebanks. The service was very poor though, we were ignored by the waiters and ended up ordering our drinks at the bar ourselves. In the end we had a nice time but not because of the service.

In short this place has an amazing ambiance in the summer. The seating b the river is unbeatable and the food is very good. The service is slow which is surprising as it is always busy without being over crowded, so you would think the staff had that part figured out. So relax, kick back, lower your speed expectations, and... More
