Since the reviews on TripAdvisor were so good, I really wanted to give this place a go, and felt very luck to have managed to get a table outside without booking. The sign outside asked people to wait to be seated but when I arrived there didn't appear to be anyone to check who was waiting so I went in... More

What's not to like about Bakfickan? Service is great, prices are great and the food is amazing. The Fried Baltic herring with spring onion butter & mashed potatoes is to die for! It was THE best meal I had during my visit to Visby. The Smoked shrimps with aioli & toast is also very good and not to be missed... More

This place was so good we ate there three times during the week we were staying in Visby. Food was consistently great, and the service was cheerful and fun. Be sure to make a booking, though, to avoid being disappointed; it's a small restaurant that is very popular with both locals and tourists.

Small, but very nice and good restaurant. For us, clearly the best experience at the central "Stora Torget"! Fish & lobster was very good, smoked shrimps fresh and tasty, and the wine-recommendations worked really well. Bakfickan is small, but with really nice food and good staff. Book a table (for 6pm) or do as we and come around 7.30pm when... More

We were 4 persons for lunch, and we had some good expectations for coming here, as some friends suggested it to us. First find is, book in advance, it's really difficult to get a table without reservation, but then again, as it is anywhere else in Sweden :P Suggestion: Order the smoked shrimps (rökta räkor), they are lovely. Positive: the... More

Me and my friend went there with no expectaions. A small place with interesting interior. 2 hours later we can only agree on one thing: THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST MEALS WE HAVE EVER HAD. All food was fantastic.
