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.

“Great views and good food”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We went early in the afternoon and had appetizers and some drinks. The food was fresh and of high quality. The views are wonderful. Bring a jacket just in case because it can get cool and windy up there. See the photos of the food for an idea of what to expect. We would return anytime.

“Good food and service - the view is very nice!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I have had better dinners but the service overall was nice and the atmosphere was nice. A lot of people on a Tuesday evening. I went there around six and the dinner was while the sun sets and that was amazing.
Over all a good dinner - the price is high compared to a restaurant in this class but it's worth the trip at least once.

“Amazing views, mediocre food”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Went to Gondolen with colleagues on a recommendation from a conference organizer during a week-long trip to Stockholm. The views are pretty spectacular, but the food left something to be desired - the "carpaccio three ways" was carpaccio with three different mildly flavored sauces/toppings (parmaggiano with pine nuts and arugula, horseradish with beets, and avocado and wasabi), and the halibut was also not overly interesting.

After-dinner drinks in the glass shaft over the water, though, was impressive; to others, I would recommend simply enjoying cocktails and having dinner elsewhere.

“Disappointing there are better restaurants in Stockholm”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Dined after recommendation from a local, was advised that this restaurant is renowned for its seafood. Had the stuffed halibut with serranoham, basil and vasterbotten cheese. What arrived was 2 rolls of halibut, extremely dry and tasteless. accompanying diners had same experience with meals. Tasteless bland boring is the only description that comes to mind. there are far better restaurants in Stockholm. The view can be experienced from many of the sites around Stockholm and to be honest there is nothing facinating to see 33m above the water at night. Stockholm on foot is one spectular city whether it be day or night. NOT WORTH A VISIT.
