One of this restaurant's classic dishes is a shrimp sandwich - it looks good and it tastes good! And I mean on the patio (Arkipelag Garden). Also other dishes on the menu probably are good, but it is kind of a tradition to have shrimps here. Staff is friendly, service is good, relaxed atmosphere. They very often have live music... More

I attended a conference at the Arkipelag and thus had the lunch buffet two days in a row. It was, to say the least, a mediocre experience, especially for a guy like me who spends a great deal of time at conference centres around Scandinavia. The salad buffet was dull and not varied at all, the hot dishes were bland... More

I have enjoyed a lot of hotel breakfast buffets, mostly tasty but dull ones, a few disappointments and a few thrills like this one. Local fresh bread, smoked salmon, homemade cereals, Alands special pancake....you name it. And most important: The omelette was perfect.

We had arrived at the airport late and had, therefore, arrived at the restaurant about 10 minutes before closing. The waitresses had no trouble with this and we had access to the full menu. The inside seating was full of bar customers waiting for the casino to open and so we had to sit outside. Good heaters were provided as... More

Arkipelag, or "Arken" is not really where you go for dinner. They have a decent lunch buffet and then it is the place to be late at night. It also is directly adjacent to the Casino, with indoor access between the two. Arken after hours is where everyone is. If you want a gourmet dinner, go to ÅSS Segelpaviljongen, Natutical... More

I had the pleasure of meeting this restaurant during my stay in Mariehamn. I experienced an excellent dish of fish cooked with vegetables and enjoy a glass of good white wine. I recommend.

Clean, big room, good breakfast with balcony option. Balcony in the room, however expect live outdoor music in nearby bars and restaurants in the summer. Mariehamn is cosy and beautiful, restaurants and marina right next to the hotel.

The lunch buffèt is very price worth.There is a salad buffèt, 2 choises of hot food, 1 vegetarian and 1 soup. Coffee/tea and small biscuits after lunch. The interior feels like a time travel, it's like beeing onboard an old boat, a bit smelly and dirty. During summer you can eat outside and enjoy the view of the harbour. Only... More
