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