The view is amazing and gives the restaurant a unique unique atmosphere. Check the old advertising signed from the top of the neighbor building. Food was delicious, service was excellent and a nice evening overall.

Upper restaurant on rooftop overlooks the city and is more of a vibrant hipster scene. Restaurant on the main level below the rooftop is fine dining. Both are restaurants are owned by same person so they dont care which one you go to. For more vibrant scene pick rooftop

Sited in Södermalm's heights above Slussen (the lock connecting Södermalm Island with Gamla Stan (Old Town) island, the main draw are the panoramic views. We visited several times and were never disappointed (champagne helps). The seafood, so often the case in Stockholm, was excellent: char, herring, kalix löjrom (roe), crayfish, lobster.... Some here have described the service less favorably than... More

I happened to visit Gondolen, a fine dining restaurant with my wife and her friends. The Stockholm city view from the restaurant was really pretty. I liked their desserts.

Crossing Skeppsbron to Sodermalm this intriguing edifice was to be seen. We stepped in for a cocktail and stayed for dinner. From the interesting cocktail selection we went for a Ruby Collins and a Mai-Tai, both grand. It was such a lovely location with panoramic views we decided to extend our stay and asked for the dinner menu. For this... More

The view was actually not as exciting as I've hoped. I'm sure there are better spots in the city. At the entrance, when we just walked in (with a reservation) the host immediately told us at which time they needed the table back. Great for my appetite! Food was a great introduction to Swedish food, with a nice focus on... More

The view is great and the food is very good. My wife is a vegetarian and there were limited options on the menu; however, she really like what she ordered. Service was great. Would highly recommend.

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.
