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.

This restaurant is absolutely lovely. The views from the actual bar and restaurant were fantastic. Make sure you ask for a table near the window so you can see the spectacular views. The Christmas buffet was spectacular. There was so much choice. The food was very tasty and the selection was brilliant. The majority of food consists of fish. There... More

The restaurant is situated at Slussen, on the top floor of a building, enabling amazing views of the waterfront, Djurgården and Old Town. The service is good and the reception is excellent. The food is somewhat expensive, but prepared very nicely. I would recommend the restaurant to have at least a "Swedish" speciality for tourists who want to taste the... More

Was there with my granddaughter for dinner. Had a table with a view of the Salt lake. Excellent service, splendid food and delicious drinks. And friendly Eric came to our table and said hello, first at my grand daughter which was most courteous and appreciated by both of us.

The Gondolen is a restaurant that is interesting in its architecture and layout. It lies like a bridge across the street at a lofty height and offers a wonderful view of the city via its large glassed picture windows. It connects to the lock. An elevator meant only for 2 at a time, transports you to this interesting space. The... More

With our party we decided to go to a restaurant with great local reputation and one of the best views in town. So it was a bit of a setback when we discovered that our great view was obscured by very dense fog. The dinner made us forget all of that. Great bisque and fantastic venison. Go here for a... More

Location superb, food excellent, service slow. I know the latest to be a signature of the restaurant; still 30min waiting time between courses is a little extreme. Still, chilled atmosphere and beautiful views of Stockholm as well as great people watching combined with lovely food and wine make for a winning combination.

This is a Stockholm classic. The food as well as the service is really good . From Gondolen you also have one of the best restaurant views in Stockholm. Do not expect a calm restaurant during weekends. It can be quite busy.

Food is one thing but that view was great. I think food is ok, nothing special. Best part of this restaurant is a bar which stands high above the ground and you can see every direction while enjoying great wine there.. My first time here, but will definitely come back some day. Fantastic evening with great company!

Gondolen is situated in a very odd place under then walkway from a lift going from the lift to a higher level of the city. The view from the restaurant is really good overlooking Stockholm inlet and the old town. The food is good very good but not to the level of a star in Guide Rouge. Service is correct... More
