Description: Eriks Gondolen in Södermalm floats between the sky and the sea with a breathtaking view over Lake Mälaren and the beginnings of the archipelago in Saltsjön. A restaurant with 320 covers, a gem since 1935, comprised of the Dining Room, the Kitchen, the Bar and the Banqueting Rooms ?Kungarummet? and ?Redarsalen?. In the summer the Grill Bar on the roof terrace is open. Restaurang Gondolen is no less than a modern classic in Sweden's gastronomic world. A place to see and to be seen. At lunch classic homely fare is served such as veal in dill sauce, homemade black pudding or steamed haddock with prawns and horseradish. On the dinner menu are dishes such as a platter of pickled and Baltic herring, seafood cocktail with Norway lobster au gratin, gremolata baked angler fish with ratatouille or roast fillet of veal with a cep confit.

My friends who live in Stockholm suggested we go to this restaurant. It was my treat for this hospitality. The views from the bar and the restaurant are wonderful and especially at sunset. The feel in the bar is like being in a private club. We had the tasting menu (about 7 to 8 courses) and the food was good.... More

We had dinner with a family of 7. We experienced very attentive service, a fantastic view and excellent food. From lobster and pike perch to fillet of beef, everything was made to the point. I recommend this place for business lunches as well as for more formal family occasions.

I was in Sweden for a short 5 day visit and this was one of 2 great meals I had there. It is right in the heart of the city with excellent views of a gorgeous city. Coming from the US everything is expensive so I try to ignore that part. Food is very upscale as is the entire place.... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and although booking is normally required, the Head Waiter was most helpful and the 6 of us were given a table 40 minutes later having had drinks on the upstairs terrace bar. My food was very good and nobody was disappointed - it was not, however, sensational food just very good.
