Though it's called Star Bowling, don't think this place is just about throwing heavy balls down wooden lanes. For starters, this American-themed restaurant has a huge menu with foods associated with New York, California, Texas and New Mexico like Santa Cruz spareribs, the Santa Rosa sandwich and New York steak. You can also come by just for the games. Here you'll find a bowling, darts, billiards, and more! Just be aware if you want to play games, you have to be 18 years or older Monday through Thursday and 22 years or older Friday and Saturday.
This is something as unbelievable as a Dutch neighborhood restaurant, located in between Ullevi and the train station. It offers traditional Dutch cuisine, deep-fried dishes, some smaller courses and pancakes in a genuinely friendly Dutch atmosphere. The actual restaurant is quite simple, the walls are cluttered with Dutch curiosities. The location of the restaurant is fairly central, near Nordstan with its shopping and just a stone's throw from Ullevi, the arena where many events take place.
Norda Bar & Grill prides itself on being part Swedish and part American with a menu that reflects a New York sensibility. In fact, the menu is divided in half, one part sea and one part land with simple standards like halibut and cod and steak and lamb. You'll also find hybrid dishes like the tacos, which sounds simple at first, but then you realize your choice of meats are salmon, halibut or smoked chicken. Though located in the Clarion Hotel Post, the Norda Bar & Grill prides itself on serving creative dishes, setting itself a part from other hotel restaurants.
Coffee and a slice of pie are what patrons mainly come here for, though the place is humming with activity at any given time of the day. The daily menu at Fröken Olssons Kafé usually features salads and baguette sandwiches stuffed with shrimp or ham and made in a traditional Swedish fashion, to be washed down with a mug of refreshing lager. Make sure you grab a table on the terrace in summer, and ask for a bowl of their piping hot homemade soup, followed by the main course. One of the huge, delicious meringues on a silver tray should wrap up the meal very well indeed!
Kafé Vanilj is a spacious and unpretentious cafe at Kyrkogatan, right in the city center. It is large with light colored wood furnishings. Vanilj's fruit pies are good, and they stay open late, even on Sundays. To get here, take trams 3, 4, 5, 6 or 8 to Kungsportsplatsen.
Murveln is slang for "Journalist"; at one time this place may have been teeming with them, but it certainly is not today. The clientele are a varied bunch, most of whom come for a drink and perhaps some food. In the daytime they can be tired shoppers dropping by for an afternoon beer; in the evenings anyone will show up. This is because Murveln is in the middle of Nordstan, by daylight a large shopping mall, but at night a shelter from the cold or a shortcut to the railway station. Many come for the different casino and lottery games. Murveln offers cheap lunches, and a special of the week is available. The food is typically Swedish, while beer and spirits are the main items.
This old flagship always seems to make a comeback on the nightclub and restaurant scene in one way or another. Nowadays, Gamle Port is a restaurant and nightclub that is open during weekends, with DJs as well as live music and other performances. There is a pub menu and an à la carte menu with a decent price range. The minimum age for admission is 18. Gamle Port is situated centrally near Kungsportsplatsen. Do check out the website or call for timings.
Källarkrogen is in the middle of town and has been a restaurant for over 40 years. But food-related activities have taken place in the building since the 18th Century, when a butcher had his shop here. Typical of Gothenburg's restaurants, plenty of fish and seafood are on the menu at Källarkrogen as well. Most of the starters are marine in nature, but there are plenty of meat dishes among the main courses. The restaurant is also open for lunch. It makes for a cozy dining place, with low brick vaults and lots of candles. Definitely romantic!
An American sports bar with 30 TVs and three giant screens, O'Learys attracts the true sports fans, offering a typical American menu. The chain has branches in many Swedish towns but the one in Gothenburg was the first. The two-story restaurant has several bars and although the main attractions here are beer and sports, it is possible to have a really good meal. The large selection goes from Chicken Thai to chicken wings, covering everything in between. The décor has sports paraphernalia and red-and-white checkered tablecloths. The personnel is service-minded, dropping by every few minutes to check that everything is satisfactory.
