    I eat out a lot, since I work...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I eat out a lot, since I work a lot and since this is the way I usually meet friends. I like good food and I am prepared to pay for it, so my taste might be on the expensive side, but definitely worth it!
    GONDOLEN, on top of the city elevator at Slussen, Södermalm.
    LAO WAI, on Luntmakargatan, Norrmalm (a great vegetarian with personal atmosphere.)
    DJURET, in Old Town ("The Animal" has one animal at a time as a theme - fabulous).
    ROPPONGI, Hantverkargatan, Kungsholmen (japanese and not THAT expensive).
    LYDMAR, next to Grand Hotel.
    PAUS, Rörstrandsgatan, Vasastan.
    BRASSERIE GODOT, Linnégatan/Grev Turegatan, Östermalm. (Also has wonderful drinks. Ask for the veal liver with bacon and capers for dinner!)

    Good Indians (less expensive):
    ARA TANDOOR, Hantverkargatan, Kungsholmen. (great!)
    INDIRA, Bondegatan 3, Södermalm. (generous, cosy atmosphere)
    ELLORA, Hornsgatan, Södermalm (good for lunch)

    Nice cafés with good coffee:
    SYSTRARNA LUNDBERGS, Rörstrandsgatan, Vasastan (they also serve food).
    MUFFIN, Fridhemsgatan, Kungsholmen.
    WAYNE'S COFFEE, one on Götgatan on Södermalm, and one on Kungsgatan in the center, one in central Kungsträdgården (park) and in plenty other places.
    GOOD CAFE STREETS: Götgatan (close to Slussen) on Södermalm, Odengatan and around the square Odenplan in Vasastan, Rörstrandsgatan on Kungsholmen, Stortorget in Gamla Stan/Old Town (beware of Västerlånggatan, a real tourist trap). There are nice cafés almost wherever you go!

    Pretentious, pompous and slow. I ordered veal and was served venison, being asked if I minded. (The venison had a pound of salt on it)When I wanted to order dessert I was informed that there was a time limit on our table and perhaps there would be time for coffee. I asked myself why nobody took my order for about fifteen minutes after being seated. I just don't get this is this supposed to best Stokholm has to offer?

    Gondolen: Great drinks 33 meters off the ground

    by Minde Written Jul 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is one of the must-sees in Stockholm, thanks to its special construction 33 meter off the ground. I haven't eaten here, but from what I've heard, the food is not all it's cracked up to be. However, you should definitely come to the wine bar for the drinks and the view. This place will be crowded already early on a Saturday afternoon with people sipping on their frozen margaritas admiring the sun set over the roof tops of Söder.

    Dress code: Smart casual

    For food, booking in advance is probably a good idea.

    Gondolen: Priceless view over Stockholm

    by musbars Updated Oct 31, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    36 meter above ground Gondolen offers a priceless view over Stockholm and the surrounding water. Besides excellent food in a charming setting there is a popular bar serving a wide choice of cocktails.
    Very nice place to eat.

    MichalisM's Restaurant Tip

    RESTAURANTS IN STOCKHOLM
    In recent years foreign food stores (especially Greek , Italian and Oriental) have grown more common in Sweden , offering various foods not found in regular stores.
    A typical Swedish meal is based on Lax (salomon) .
    There are some very nice restaurants around GAMLA STAN ( the old town) with the most famous among them “Fem sma hus “( that means in swedish “five small houses”).But attention!!!!Eating out in Sweden is very expensive !
    For a meal in a nice restaurant you have to pay minimum 500 Sek till to 1200 Sek.
    That means that you should pay at least 55EURO and that’s a lot of money !
    Lets say that in my country you can have a perfect meal with 1/3 or less of these money!
    Anyway, if you have that money you can also try “Gondolen” in Slussen.
    Eating out at lunch hours makes the thinks much better!
    You can have a non-stop meal at PIZZA HUT with only 75 SEK(8 EURO)
    Or you can try one of the Chineese-Indian-Thai restaurants in Sveavagen (a street tha connects Odenplan with Norrmalm)with similar prices.In “Collage Bar “ you can have buffet with only 45 SEK(5EURO) .Around Hotorget are some interesting and not very expensive restaurants as well.
    I don’t suggest McDonalds or Burger King .The quality of food is not good(im sure that’s it’s the same in your own country!) and you need about 100SEK (11EURO) for a big meal.

    Gondolen is a sober, exclusive restaurant for business dinners or expensive all-nighters with a priceless view over Stockholm and the surrounding water.
