This restaurant is high above the city with wonderful views! The only problem is, due to major building works, it is totally impossible to reach by taxi and the only way is to walk some way from where it can drop you! At night ,if you are more than 2 people , you have to have a centre table and... More

Having been at the Gondolen many times in the past and having had great experience there, we chose to go there once again for a dinner with family and a friend. While I rated my experience at Gondolen as five star in the past, my experience there earlier this week was very poor. We were welcomed warmly at the reception... More

Outstanding views, great food and good service. We are here on a Saturday night and the bar was hopping. Half lobster was as.good as any I have had. Lamb just perfection itself. Wife had mushrooms and halibut both were very good. Recommended. Will return here.

On occasions we've met here with friends for drinks before going elsewhere for dinner. One day we'll definitely dine there and the restaurant seems to be very popular and always fully booked. I enjoy their Martinis, among other things, and always find the view spectacular. The bar staff ought to rethink their position though as they are there to serve... More

Went to Gondolen with my partner and a friend for our last night in Stockholm. This was our second visit to Gondolen, the first visit was 3 years ago. The food was as spectacular as we remembered with appropriate size courses. The service was attentive but not engaging. Our waiter did offer good wine selections and did a reasonable job... More

We had a group dinner with 30+ people, set menu. Beautiful day/evening in Stockholm in a very nice location. Excellent food and wine and a service that looked after us perfectly.

If your time is short in Stockholm, don't stay on the ground, staring at the walls of a good restaurant...get up in the sky and eat well while enjoying the beautiful city and its waterways. Not table has a bad view.

We were a group of 6 with reservation made a day earlier. We were told that there was 6pm to 8pm dinner seating. We arrived on time and were seated 1 row away from the windows, though there were plenty of tables by the window. Apparently, they were unavailable. We ordered our meals. Two of us ordered the "meal of... More

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.

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.
