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.

average food, bad service and a spectacular view. This is maybe because they survive as a tip in Stockholm.

Really nice view and central location. They might need to clean a little bit better the windows in order to make it even better. The food is really nice and the views are amazing. You can also go to the bar, however, I would recommend to try the food there.

Excelent view and location, this place is not "hip" cool or cozy, but the cooking is very good, and all ingredients are top class - lobster, lamb rack, ox fillet etc. 495skr for a three coarse dinner is ok compared to swedish prices

Our blow-out dinner in Stockholm took place at Eriks Gondolen located in the Slussen area near Gamla Stan. The service was attentive and the food amazing. My husband said it was the best food we've had on our trip to Scandinavia and we've eaten really well. The views from our table on both sides of the narrow restaurant extension leading... More

The restaurant setting is great, with a nice view of Stockholm. We got their degustation menu with wine pairing. Although the swedish caviar and fish were tasty, the other dishes were heterogeneous. Except for the prosecco, the wine pairing was not satisfactory. Although service was adequate, it was not what we expected in a gourmet restaurant.

It is a great restaurant. Yet there might be some building constructions disturbing you since they are rebuilding the area Slussen and nothing works the way it should. Travel out to the Bergian Garden instead to enjoy the old Orangery.

Our table for two was next to the window and again it was great to see the views. The food was great lovely fresh fish and the desserts were absolutely gorgeous. The... More
