Certainly not a return visit, this restaurant was good but forgettable. Food was well presented but portions were small. Waiters seemed disinterested.

This is a tiny and very popular seafood restaurant which uses fresh, local ingredients. The service is quick and friendly and the food is brilliant - I definitely recommend the fish soup!

If you have time to visit only one restaurant in Visby old town, make it Bakfiken. It's small, located beside St. Karin' s church ruins, just off the main square. Stick to tap water, though: 20 kronor for a 20cc bottle of San Pelegrino!

Nice place for drop-in dinner. I took the fish soup and it was tasty. Great when yoy want to eat tasty fish and seafood. I was excpecting a little bit more, but it was still recommendable.

This is a very small but comfy place, you cannot reserve a table so be prepared to wait. Staff are polite and very friendly. Food is so so good, this is a fish restaurant so you have to like sea food. Highly recommended.
