In my job I often recommend restaurants to visitors, but there are two restaurants that visitors seem to know about before coming to Stockholm: Gondolen and Pelikan. Besides being good restaurants, they are widely written about in various city guidebooks. I think that this is because of a combination of word-of-mouth and good PR on behalf of the restaurants themselves.

All four above mentioned restaurants are located on the island of Södermalm, a 5 to 20 minute walk from the Rival Hotel... depending on the restaurant!
