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.

Very nice place with good food and wonderful view

I was there many years ago and it was a nice experience. Food was good. Little minus was too much people, so I could barely hear my husband sitting infront of me. Overall good impression. View was one of the best things.

With the help of our hotel concierge we managed to get a table on a Saturday night, seated in the glass arm, with the most incredible views over Stockholm. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by attentive and friendly staff. The food continued to delight from a delicately prepared lobster, subtle flavours of the cured salmon, tender ribeye...

If you want a great view over the inlet to Stockholm with ships boats and other shipping I recommend Gondolen restaurant. Friendly staff, good food and lovely environment. Particularly after-work meeting.

Visited this site for cocktails and have to admit its one of the nicest cocktail bars I've visited. Although the drinks are expensive in comparison with UK prices, it didnt detract from the experience. Perched above Stockholm's centre, there are magnificent views especially so if, like me, you visit at sunset.

We ate here as a party of four on 30 December. I am a regular visitor to Stockholm and my partner and I were joined for dinner by two Stockholm locals. This is a great panoramic location near to Slussen metro station with views across the city. Restaurant is bigger than you realise with a popular and very lively cocktail... More

A very busy place, where you definitely should make reservations if you'd like to have a table, it also can be an afterwork party place and is very popular with local residents as a bar. Besides a picturesque view over the city (the restaurant is on the top floor of the building next to the river), the food and service... More

Gondolen is a restaurant, and a good one I presume, but the real gem here is the bar. The view over Lake Mälaren AND the Baltic Sea is spectacular. The narrow space gives you the feeling of being inside the Hindenburg just before it crashed. The bartenders are old school and will serve the classic long drinks with ease. Since... More

Gondolen is one of Stockholms classic and finest restaurants. The food is very good, but somewhat expensive. The menu is classic a la carte with a few twists and the food quality is overall very good! Don't miss their bar. The have one of Stockholm largest and best selection of cocktails!

The food was pretty good as was the service. But from what I've heard about the place I actually expected more to be honest. The view was stunning however. One of the drawbacks was that it was packed and the area with the best view was very loud. We sat a bit off and had a quieter spot, but it... More

Staying in Slussen

Neighborhood Profile
Slussen
A unique mix of grotesque 1960s concrete urban vision and cosy historical Swedish brick houses, Slussen has become one of Stockholm’s most architecturally edgy and controversial neighborhoods. Plans to rebuild the area have been on the agenda for decades, however, so far no agreement could be reached, which is the reason for the continuing decay of its brutalist substance. Nevertheless, the museums and the main shopping street, Götgatan, attract both locals and tourists with Sweden’s most fashion-forward clothing retailers, hipster coffee shops and restaurants. Once the lights are out, the area turns into a bustling nightlife haven, catering to all preferences, from posh hotel bars to sweaty underground nightclubs. There is no better place to experience the clash between old and new Sweden.
