Och himlen därtill (freely translated as "Next to heaven") is a rooftop restaurant / bar with an almost 360 degree view on Stockholm. It's a great place to meet up with your friends, to celebrate, to have a drink before exploring Stockholm by night. They have good but rather expensive food too, a kind of tapas, stuff like roe, smoked venison, foie gras, pickled wild mushrooms, offering a spectrum of Scandinavian tastes.

It's a good place for couples, friends, business acquaintances, or for flying solo, it's up to you.

This restaurant is located in the former tax building, on the 27th floor. Upon arrival, the waiter took us to our table. He and the other waitresses were dressed as if they were at a square dance, most of the time their shirts riding up or the suspenders were too loose - not too flattering when you are trying to give the impression of being a more upscale restaurant.
We were recommeded the halibut with a red wine. I took the white wine which my partner regretted afterwards not taking. The fish had a hard crust and it was dry overall. The lobster pieces were also a bit dry. The reduced red wine sauce was our saving, to moisten the fish. The meal was a bit over salted. Our dish was over 350 swedish crowns (around €33), definetly overpriced for what you got.
I guess that we were paying for the view because we certainly were not paying for the food. The service was fine. Our waitress was trying to put airs of working for an upscale restaurant but if you are dressed as if you are going to a barnyard dance, it is a bit hard to take them seriously.
This is not a place I would recommend.

This restaurant is located on top of one of the few "sky scrapers" in Stockholm so it could be worth the visit just because of the magnificent view over the city. In case that´s what you are coming for there is also the option to visit the bar instead of the restaurant.

The food is first class with best possible ingredients with all it's history well explained to you by maybe a little bit too eager staff: "This butter comes from the milk of a cow named Rosa who lives in the little cottage...." etc.

Same for the wines. Their history well explained and they really tried to find out what was your taste, and you where free to taste some before deciding.

Only, the portions are so small that coming out of the place you head for the next hamburger restaurant because you are now really hungry after the quite long dinner.

That in combine whit almost chocking high prices will take me directly to the bar next time visiting this place for the view.

So in summary, a high class restaurant where you leave after dinner with an empty stomach and a empty wallet.

Far away from that.!.If someone is mentally masochists,please go there,We,tried,we failed,thats enough!.Enjoy your success!
