Very tasty food, good quality field with aromatic flavor with excellent presentation. Full service from the waiter and he provided the time to explain restaurant concept and also suggested a good composition of meal based on our cravings. High standard quality restaurant.

Smakrike is living up to its reputation as probably one of the very best restaurants in Gotland, both in terms of quality, originality and the setting. Besides a 5-meal set course with wine (that we did not try), the a la carte menu covers some 6-7 starters and an equal number of main dishes. In particular the starters are exquisite,... More

We went here first for lunch, and when that was a success, dinner a few days later. As for most restaurants outside Visby, it's a good idea to check opening times before you visit (most of Gotland is open mainly June to August). The restaurant is very comfortable with a nice veranda. The menu is focused on quality rather than... More

We spent late summer weekend at Gotland in marvelous sunny weather. We had many meals at Visby but the best place we visited was Smakrike. Here we were served a deliciuos fishdish and a nice dessert. Service was friendly and professional.

We had lunch and the "adult choices" were really good. Not big dishes, but prices were also OK. Pastries were also great. But the children's dishes were far too expensive, even if our children liked them. 129 SEK for 2 small chicken skewers and fries is not OK. On top of that, service was not as attentive as you would... More

Lovely restaurant in beautiful setting (we were sitting outside enjoying a perfect summer evening). We had very nice main courses and an amazing pistachio dessert that might be the best dessert i've ever tasted - if in Ljugarn you should not miss it!

Smakrike offers cosy atmosphere in a beautifully renovated building with a nice little garden and terrace. The food is very good but incredibly overpriced. We ordered turbot with potato stomp for main course. It was delicious, but for a price of SEK350 you certainly would expected more than two tiny baby filets on your plate that probably didn't weigh more... More

The last time we were at Smakrike was 2006. When we heard it was now a boutIque hotel we didn't hesitate to book remembering the amazing meals we had eaten there. The holiday was blessed with amazing weather (heat wave 2014!) and we had a wonderful week in Ljugarn but sadly Smakrike was not as we remembered. The hotel feels... More

This restaurant is situated in a rather small town (village?) without many options, and I chose it because of the recommendation of Tripadvisor. It is in fact very nice with a varied menu with a range of local specialties. The restaurant itself is low-key chique and has a pleasant atmosphere, and the staff are very helpful in guiding you through... More

We chose to sit in the garden to eat our dinner and the atmosphere was beautiful. There is a table set in a greenhouse with a beautiful chandelier that is perfect for large family dinners or a nice gathering of friends. My friend and I shared two dishes because we couldn't stop eating each other's food. I had the most... More
