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.

Nice food and nice view

This is a nice restaurant high up from the ground with nice view of the city. This is a fine dining restaurant with relatively high price. The food are generally good and match the price level. The stuff are professional with very decent look. However, a bit too serious and cool in... read more

Apparently a bit up and down on this restaurant but we had a wonderfully good time eating, drinking enjoying the view of Stockholm with good staff around us.

We went to Gondolen, from Stockholm restauranteur, Erik Lallerstedt, for a birthday diner, 26 years after we had visited the original Erik's in Gamla Stan. Quite simply, our meal at Gondolen was one of the best meals we have ever had in every way. It is hard not to start with the views of Stockholm. From the top of a... More

While the food at Gondolen is quite special, such as the veal tar tar and the autumn lamb, and the views are to die for, you can't help but think that there are too few waiters. Our waiter was friendly but he certainly didn't have time for any small talk or to bring us the dessert menu at the end... More

This restaurant (atop a tower) has pretty amazing views, wherever you are sat. The food is refined Swedish fayre with a Continental European bias - all very tasty. However, the service is a big charmless, and it is expensive.

My host family invited me and my boyfriend here on our last evening in Stockholm and it made for a spectacular evening. We first had a drink on the roof while waiting for our table. The rooftop bar overlooks Södermalm and we were lucky enough to have a sunset backdrop. Once inside, the restaurant felt upscale and diners with a... More

I am sure the restaurant would be a treat but when we stumbled on Gondolen it was already fully booked. Intrigued by the outside viewing area of the city, plus the tripadvisor review I read of the restaurant, we decided to check out the bar/food area. Though not immediately being able to get a table and having been told it... More

If you want to experience the finest Swedish cuisine, but didn't get your invite to the Nobel prize ceremony, this legendary second home to centuries of artists and troubadours is your next best chance. Here you will discover the often heard 'välkommen!' in many Swedish establishments actually has true meaning whether it be the genuine smile from your waited or... More

I visited Eriks Gondolen this June. We were on a cruise and stopped for a day in Stockholm. One of our family friends strongly recommended us to eat there, and so we did. At first we were confused as to where the entrance was, but then asking around we found it. Once you go up the elevator and enter the... More
