Charmingly located at a fork in the street, if you sit outside you will have people passing you by on both sides. Visby is a place for people watching, especially during Medieval Week when others dress up for the festivities. Service is excellent and attentive, the food is locally produced and beautifully presented. Wine list is excellent. Highly recommend.

We came here nine hungry guests and were treated very kind and professional during the extremely busy Almedalen week. We had their dinner package and their suggestion of white and claret wine. Really lovely and somewhat innovative, especially the rhubarb and raspberry pie in a small jar dessert. Some ingredients were from this magical island of beauty. We had a... More

Went here with a friend and was kind of surprised about how nice both service and food was during the hectic hour. The place was packed but they managed to get the food out very quickly and well prepared.

We came here on a quiet Wednesday night. Getting a table at 7pm was easy without a reservation. The menu was typical Swedish food. The food was good, but not exceptional. Fish was well prepared and presented. Lamb was also cooked well and presented well. Staff were very friendly and helpful, however service was still patchy. Overall good atmosphere and... More

We had our dinner at g:a masters and ate a main course each. The atmosphere of this restaurant is cosy and the dim lights give it a romantic vibe. The location is very central in Visby and easily accessible. g:a masters had a good choice of meals and offered an excellent choice of wines and spirits, notably at least 20... More

I will admit I looked up Gamla Masters here on TripAdvisor before stopping there for dinner and decided to go there based on the strength of the reviews. I am glad to say that those reviews came through in a big way as my wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal. We did not make a reservation beforehand, but since... More

The bottle of water on your table will cost you $7 if you open it. The food was good, what you would expect at a high level restaurant. Some of the side portions on the plate were luke warm. Service was fine. Overall good but not excellent.

We made a reservation at G:a Masters after passing by and reading the menu. As luck would have it, it turned out to be our favorite meal during a lengthy trip to Sweden. It seemed only right to have the rack of lamb since the whole island of Gottland is known for its particular breed of sheep. It was delicious... More

My husband had a giant steak and potatoes, but this restaurant had a nice variety of more gourmet items, too. Good service and a relaxed feel. You could sit on the porch or inside, might need a reservation to sit outside. Not cheap but good food and drink.
