Description: Indigo Restaurant & Bar is located centrally in Mariehamn. The house is one of Mariehamn's oldest and we have preserved much of the old historic charm of the house possesses. We offer lunch, meeting, lunch, a la carte and business dinners. On the upper floor there is a bar with a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where we also serve our bistro menu. Summer time we open the patio and bar in the courtyard.

“Overpriced, nice decor and service”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Our 7 person (5 adults, 2 children) group ate here in the beginning of August. The restaurant looks fine and the atmosphere was friendly and easy going. The menu was OK and the wine list was very good and innovative. Service was friendly though the waiter did not speak Finnish(!?).

Our starters were ok or good for everyone but the main courses were quite the opposite. Childrens dishes were apallingly salty and the meat was completely overcooked (not even the adults managed to chew it!). The tuna steaks were ordered as medium but arrived more like well done and tasteless instead. The salmon dish was othervise ok except it was too salty. Pork dish was most value for money.

We also received Amuse bouche at start and also a small "desert" after our meal but those nice gestures could not hide the fact that the rather expensive main dishes were not up to standard.

“the upstairs bistro is great for atmosphere and pre-party socializing”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Ate there on Friday the 14th, 2nd last day of Ålands restaurant-days and we had Indigos cheese and bacon burger. As the restaurant-days were ongoing we got places at the upstairs bistro only. The upstairs had been remodelled recently in a very positive way and according to our local friends, the bistro is a popular place for chilling and pre-party drinking with couples or friends. The service was rapid and flexible and and would recommend it to hip people who like open space and lively dining.

“Excellent Bistro Fare”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Indigo is situated in the heart of Mariehamn. On a Saturday evening in April without a reservation, we couldn't eat in the dining room, but got a table in the bar upstairs. It was a nice room with a high, sloped ceiling, regular tables as well as black leather couches and coffee table; sleek, modern look and feel.

There is a nice wine selection and a small bar menu. We had a seafood soup, rich and creamy and full of flavor, and curry chicken salad with pasta and slices of fresh pineapple. The chicken had a wonderful slow heat which was complemented by the pineapple and pasta. Amazingly good. I recommend the bistro and hope I can return for a meal in the dining room some time.

“Solid food. Nice lunch but you can tell dinner is theo forte in terms of ambiance and variety.”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Lunch was limited selection which is the reason or my slightly lower rating. Didn try other places on the island for lunch.
