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...

This is a charming small restaurant that doesn't look like much but don't be too hasty to judge the book by its cover - the food is amazing and the staff is professional and friendly. We tried the neck of cod and the smoked shrimps with dewberry lemonade, a combo we warmly recommend, took us right to childhood.

We had a simple meal here while visiting Visby one day. The ambiance is nothing special, but we enjoyed the food. Loved the homemade crisp bread.

Nice small scale fish and seafood restaurant on the main square. We had "bakad fjärsing" and fish soups as mains. Very delicious

This is not a fancy place, and 90% of the menu is fish, but the food is good. If you want a traditional Swedish fishman's meal, this is a good place to go, for lunch. They have homemade hard bread that is very good.

The restaurant could be good but the portions are small. the fish was okey but the clams was boring with little taste in. The temporary menu feels better then the regular menu,.

Had lunch here yesterday and it was very pleasant. Sat outside watching people wander passed and I enjoyed a great seafood stew. Up until yesterday they offered only two choices of lunch dishes -great idea because they can concentrate on flavour of those - but now lunch time it is ala carte. I was a bit shocked at the price...

We had dinner, followed by lunch the day after. On both occasions the food was outstanding, and felt special. The service was low-key and unobtrusive; allowing us to to focus on enjoying several excellent dishes. We look forward to our next visit.

I have been here several times. This is one of my favorites in Visby. We had marinated fried herring and this vas very good. This place generally is quite crowded and you have to make a reservation in good time. If you are two persons and late with your reservation you will get a small table very close (30 centimeters/...
