Cozy place for a late night drink

In the summer Visby becomes a bustling town and many restaurants around the main square were busy at 11:30pm after a sunny July day. Unfortunately the kitchen was closed, but our friendly bartender whipped up nice lattes and cheerfully provided drink options. The interior was semi-dark in this... read more

We had dinner here with our 5 and 7 year old and even though they dont do seperate kids dishes it was not a problem serving half portions for them. We enjoyed food and service as well as the sitting overviewing the main square of Visby. Laid back! We would defi visit again!

We ate here twice during our week in Visby, and had good food and service both times. As a celiac, I especially valued our waiters for their knowlege and willingness to make sure I had a good gluten-free dining experience. The food was delicious and beautifully served, and I felt I could relax and enjoy it to the utmost.

There is no reason not to choose this restaurant. I'm sure there might be others just as good but this place is excellent. Well prepared food, good staff, keeps to the image (French cuisine) of the restaurant all the way through but still with a local touch. The lamb roast beef was amazing! Reservations are more or less a must... More

Over the course of four days, we ate out in Visby each night in a different place. Bolaget had been highly recommended by some Swedish friends, so twas our first night's choice. smack in the middle of Visby's old walled town, Bolaget was jammed when we arrived at 6 with many diners as well as a slew of after-work drinkers...

Our impression is that Bolaget is run for locals and discourages visitors. We had our hotel reserve a table for dinner and were shown to a table where we waited about 15 minutes for any service (water, menu, any waitress). Halfway through our visit another couple was seated closer to us than either of us was comfortable with. The atmosphere... More

We had a fish soup with aioli, nice bread. The staf was friendly, no problem when we wanted some more aioli. The wine and dessert was good as well.

During a short visit of 4 days to Visby, I was so taken with Bolaget that my host and I ended up spending 3 of the 4 days/evenings at Bolaget. I spoke no Swedish, yet found the owners and staff to be very warm and hospitable. I was comfortable immediately. The view of the square at Stora Torget from Bolaget's... More
