We went to the Gondolen for a business dinner and was not disappointed. The food was really good and the service on top of their game. The best part is the view and the bar right in the center of the best viewing point. I am not able to comment on the pricing as it was covered by the host.... More

It's all about the soup.... Sat high above Stockholm this restaurant appears to be like a cantilever bridge, 11 floors up the setting is great. The crayfish bisque to start was sublime, absolutely delicious. This was followed by a gondolen speciality fish stew which contained all kinds of seafood in a spicy broth, again delicious. My favourite meal in Stockholm... More

Our group of 4 enjoyed this restaurant although the only time that we were able to get a reservation at made it such that the view was not a bonus. Book so that you are here before it gets dark (seems obvious). Appetizers and mains were above average to excellent. Service was also excellent -- maybe the disappointment of the... More

We spent a great dinner here. Fantastic food and nice service. Very nice with the owner going around and asking that all was in order. Had some nice views as well over Stockholm.

Great food available in the bar as well as in the restaurant. Great just to go for a drink to. I tend to go for lunch when I'm there but dinner is also nice.

Large choice of cocktails and wines. But quite crowded place around 6pm - difficult to get seats. But the view is worth moving up and standing up !

Tried a fixed lunch meal - and the only meal for the day was bacon-and-cheese burger with French fries. I think this is the most unhealthy meal I've ever tried in a restaurant. In McDonalds you could at least replace the fries with carrots... but not here. Potatoes were oversalted and hardly warm when served, the burger itself extremely fat... More

We couldn't dream of a better setting to drink champagne for the sunset. It was the closing night of the terrace so we had the privilege to benefit from the reduced prices. The Dj set was perfect too.

The restaurant interiors are a little bit noisy, it is not easy to talk one each other. The food is excellent and is a good choice to taste nice Swedish food. The view is unbeatable, you can catch the all Stockholm, including the Stomatol advertising sign at once.

Thank Stefano F

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.

Staying in Slussen

Neighborhood Profile
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.
