Simply, Smakbyn is the best restaurant in Åland. Fried perch files with spinach, new potatos and white wine sauce were from heaven. Everything were absolutely fresh and fabulous. The staff was very friendly. We tried to make our order in Swedish, but if the waiter...More

Our return visit two years later shows that the restaurant has maintained its ambitions to show the islands best food. Great place for local fish.

Absolutely fantastisk atmosphere and food. Sprtagus was fantastisk as well as the over roasted big. The crown for the dinner was the local honey beer. Do not miss this place if visiting in Åland, definetely!

Our group of 25 had first an excellent tasting of different distillery-products followed by the chefs introduction of the dinner. The starter with smoked rainbow-trout was excellent. The main course, lamb in two ways, failed badly. The 10cm bit of sirloin looked delicious but was...More

We had our conference here, and were served a really tasty rustic lunch. It could have been served with a few more vegetables (than the 4-5 pieces of carrots) though. The staff was really friendly and helpful.
