Best fish restaurant in Visby

A small cosy place where you get fish dishes, try "strömmingsflundran". During the summer you might have to wait for a table but it is worth waiting for.

Busy little spot with not much seating, you will need a reservation. The service was good and the food fresh and well prepared.

Reasonable prices, good fish, cosy with 25-30 seats. Good wine! A place to enjoy inside in the winter and outside in the summer.

I absolutely love this place. Small, trendy, situated at the corner of the town square so great for people spotting. Perhaps the best service you can find and the food is fantastic. Fish restaurant.

First we nearly missed the restaurant because its very small and looks like an old café. On the inside its very cozy and old styled. We ate lunch with included salad, coffee and selfmade bread. The lunch was incredible good. Its definitely worth visiting this restaurant.

Most places in Stora Torget scream tourist trap with bad food but Bakfickan is not one of them. Fresh, local fish is served and the wait staff are quick and accommodating.

We looked at the reviews by others and came to this restaurant when it was obviously very busy. Although it was September and a bit chilly we found a table outside and the staff made us feel most welcome. The venue, across from the ruins of the old monastery on the square, was full of atmosphere and beautiful. The food... More

We went for lunch, I had a half crab the likes of which I fear I'll never taste again, and my wife had the best fish soup (made with chunks of cod) she's ever had. If you like fish or seafood and you're on the island of Gotland, make no mistake, eat here.

My wife and I had dinner here (Bakfickan also serves lunch). Bakfickan gets 5 stars for service, food, and value, but, at best, 4 stars for "atmosphere". Bakfickan is located on the main square, Visby, Gotlands, Sweden. If weather permits and you are lucky enough to get one of the two outdoor tables, it offers a great view of the... More
