Best fish and the best meal I've been eating since I visited Fäviken in Åre In Januari 2013. And between then and now there has been plenty of good restaurants and some with Michelins. Very well done Bakfickan.

This tiny restaurant is wonderful. The small size adds to the charm and the fish is so incredibly fresh. The staff was wonderful, the shrimp and local beer terrific. I still think about that meal because it was a really special experience.

I visited Bakfickan for lunch and had the fried baltic herring with spring onion butter and mashed potatoes. The taste was delicious and I am dying to go back to Visby and eat this again. Service was also very good and the atmosphere nice.

This small local restaurant prepared one of the best meals on Gotland. Cozy with limited tables means try to call ahead if you can. Specializes in fish and seafood with true gourmet presentation but with good portions. Serves their oysters on frozen rocks!

I've been at Bakfickan many times, but when I re-visited the place for a dinner Monday evening in late August 2014 it was some five years since last time. I remembered the nice atmosphere and good food and was looking forward to take my dearest there now. We had booked a table. However, the place did present us sheer disappointment.... More

Compared to the last time I visited Visby and ate at Bakfickan, the popularity of this restaurant at Stor Torget has apparently boomed. The food is just as good as it was when I was here a few years ago, but there's a restaurant that can give these guys a run for their money across the street from where I... More

Small relaxed restaurant with a limited choice (about4 starters, 4 mains) and that's usually a sign of a good restaurant. it certainly was in this case. All the food was fresh and beautifully cooked and presented. We eat mainly fish which was delicious and served charmingly with good wines. The food was so good we went back twice! Even though...
