The Cottage is but one of meny restaurants and bars in Sundbyberg. The small town has a hearty nightlife well worth staing around for after sightseeing. The Cottage is a pub, with all that comes with the concept.
No, the place isn´t big but with the biggest heart, its nicknames says it all: “the hole in the wall”, the living-room”. Decorated in classic Tudor style with brass signs and oak bar, the Cottage does its best to be British. And so it is. At least as British as a small restaurant/pub can get in Sundbyberg.
From the menu you can choose from many classics, a steaming hot basket of chips with maltvinegar, ketchup and HP sauce (50 skr) to Scotch Broth, with chicken, beef or lamb (85 skr), Steak and kidney pie (138), or The Full Scottish with three different sausages, bacon, black pudding, white pudding, haggis, beans, scrambled eggs and toast (175 skr).
To quench the thirst after all the salty chips that sides the food you can choose from a really good selection of lager, ale och stout on tap (56 skr/pint), and singhle malt whisky (24 skr/cl).
The bartenders and staff are really funny and welcoming to all. Maybe that´s why there are so many regulars that like to sit and chat by the bar. But there is always room for newcomers. The ambience is cosy, warm and nourishing. In summertime, the Cottage moves outside, to a sunny spot, of course.
Open Tue-Sat 15-01, Sun 15-22
Sundbyberg Inn is probably the best Chinese restaurant in Sundbyberg. The service is good, and I have never had a bad meal here. But compared to the other restaurants in this area it's a bit more expensive.
Den Galne Kusen (The Mad Horse) is the best restaurant in the Rissne area of Sundyberg. The food is ok, but it can sometime be a bit to little taste.
One strange detail is the fluorescent laps in the restaurant, which makes the paper napkins and even the teeth to shine. This can be a bit irritating, especially while sitting and eating.
This restaurant is most often called "Den Galne Kocken" (The Mad Chef) which was the old name of this restaurant.
With 500 seats, Bällstabro Värdshus is the largest restaurant in Sundbyberg. The food is good, but the best is actually their bread. And don't worry about getting not getting enough food, you will be full after a visit here.
The restaurant is open for public between 08.00 and 16.00, other times needs to be booked in advance.
Favorite Dish: The typical Årtsoppa & Pannkakor on Thursdays.
Ilpiatto is a good Italian restaurant, but a bit to crowded sometimes. It also happens quite often that they can't offer the food they have on the menu, which of course can be a bit disappointing.
It would though be a great place for a good Italian meal on a late evening after work, but this place closes already at 6 PM.
Greens Bar is a normal local pub, with normal food for a local pub. But on a beautiful summer day this is my favourite restaurant. You will not notice it from the outside, but on the back of the restaurant it's a big veranda where you can sit eating and enjoying the Swedish summer. Even if the pub is located in the middle of the city centre, this backyard is completely isolated form the rest of the city, and you will be surprised how quiet it is.
Favorite Dish: The fish of the day, the lasange or the typical Swedish 'pytt i panna'. Lasange and Pytt i Panna is always served, other dishes vary from day to day.
The food at Sulles is ok, but not anything special. It's more of a bar than a restaurant.
The menus are though funny, it's often a lot of wrong spelled words, and it can become quite funny sometime. Like the "Hungarian Gulasch" ("Ungersk Gulasch" in Swedish) which became "Ungens Gulasch". So instead of Ungersk it was Ungens. That's 'the kids' instead of 'Hungarian'. I didn't order "The kids Gulasch" though.
At Javastop you will find the best salad in Sundbyberg. And even if ordering salad, don't be worried if you are hungry, you will become satisfied.
The only reason why I don't give this place the best grade is the fact that it's too noisy and smoky in the evenings, and even though they have a non-smoking area, it's not always respected.
Favorite Dish: The Tonar Salad is a big favourite.
At Pizzeria Del Fornaio you will get a good pizza, salad or other Italian food, and the prices are also quite good.
The environment inside the restaurant is a bit funny though, this place has been a grocery store before, and it's still quite obvious.
Evelyna is a typical Pizzeria/Fast Food place. The food is ok and cheap, but unfortunately the restaurant itself also feels cheap. It's not exactly the place for a romantic dinner.
For some reason the official name of the restaurant is Evelyna, but it's called Evelin's on the signs outside.
KallE i BackEn is probably one of the most anonymous restaurant in Sundbyberg, just check the picture. It's easy to miss, and located on a not so busy street. But they have really great food. Here you can have typical Swedish food for lunch, but be aware, the restaurant can be a bit confusing. When I have been there the staff have had some problem knowing if the guests had pay in advance or shall pay after the meal... the actually let you choose, an then it's wise to pay after the meal to avoid be asked for paying double.
But the cunfusion is maybe one other reason why the the restaurants name is supposed to be written like this:
KallE i BackEn
This is a cheap restaurant with ok food, but when looking on the overall details form the places I have been here I don't like to go to this place. If you are going here in a group, don't expect that all of you will get their food at the same time. And if ordering a Coca Cola, you will get a glass from the machine and it might taste more water than Coke. That's at least my experience.
On this pizzeria you not only find just good pizza, but also other italian food like lasange and different types of salad.
A warning though, the air in this restaurant isn't the best, so people will definately be able to smell where you have been afterwards.
Indian food is not really my favourite, but there are some good such restaurants in Sundbyberg. This is not one of them though.
I guess this place should be more considered as a bar and nightclub than a place to go for a great meal of Indian food.
This is a quite cosy and nice restaurant, and the favourite for having a good lunch. I have never had a bad meal in this place, and they always have many good choices that changes each day, so it can be a hard things to decide what to have.
Most days you may find some typical Swedish dish, like on Thursdays when you always will get the typical Swedish two dish "Pea soup" & "Pancakes" (Ärtsoppa och Pannkakor)
You will get a good lunch, with a glass to drink, bread, sallad and coffee for just 60 SEK (about 7 USD).
Favorite Dish: The fish dishes are often very good. And don't forget to try to "Pea soup" on a Thursday.
