Tips on restaurants and bars in Luleå


Restaurang CG

Restaurant CG is driven by the passion to prepare and serve good food and drink. It's about love, knowledge and respect for the raw material. The focus is grilled meat, fine fish and seafood with a north Swedish feel.


Norrbotten is known for its culinary delights and the menu reflects that. The hot dishes are the result of a great culinary pleasure combined with the guests' favorite flavors. Here you will find the best that the sea, the forest and the garden have to offer, all on one plate.


Pastabacken is one of Luleå's family businesses, and it is run with love for food and drinks. On the menu you will find food with Italian and Argentinian tradition. 
The restaurant is one of  Luleå's oldest restaurants and it has been in the same location since the 1980's. 

Aiko Social Dining

With influences and inspiration from the South American and Asian cuisine, the restaurant wants to invite it's guests and friends on a journey that shows their interpretation of the meeting of the two continents. 
The basic idea with Aiko is that the food should be enjoyed and shared together, and the restaurant itself recommends that 3 dishes per person is a full meal. 

Karl August

Karl August is one of Luleå's newest but quite classic taverns. In one of the city's most historic buildings, Swedish flavours are served with an international touch, and of course a lot of good drinks to go with it. The restaurant is located in the Elite Stadshotellet. 
Karl August's drink list is written by Emil Åreng, one of Sweden's most wellknown and successful bartenders. Visit the restaurant's round bar, the cocktail roundabout, and have a refreshing pilsner, an exciting cocktail, a glass of the house champagne or a glass of wine.
