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/...

We had the daily lunch special, which varies from day to day. It was really delicious, with fresh fish presented in a very nice manner. The lunch is excellent value for the quality on offer. The restaurant itself is small, with a charming ambiance. There are also a few tables outside on the square, which would be even better (sadly... More

Small restaurant located on the main square in Visby but with very friendly staff and a funky decor. The range of oysters and fish were good. Good range of both beer and wine. Book a table, very popular place.
