It's supposed to be one of the must go tos in Visby but always booked out. We tried it for 3 days in a row but even during the day did not get a table. Found much better alternatives. Do plan your reservation prior to your trip if you want to try it out.

First you have to book in advance as the place is very popular for lunch and dinner. We had the fish soup, the halibut and the salmon, all highly recommended. Not only the fish was well cooked but the vegetables were going well together. The crispy bread was also delicious.

Beautiful, cosy interiors. Hard to choose from menu as all choices looked so appetising. The food was excellent with generous portions.

The small and cozy Bakfickan offers some of the best seafood we have ever tasted. Our server was wonderful and helped us make excellent selections. We opted for the scallops and fried herring - both were delicious. The bread, served in a paper bag, was also very good. Highly recommend!

I like this restaurant very much, they always has classic swedish dishes on the menu. Very good and friendly service. Lunches are very popular so book a table just to make sure.

Stroll through the winding streets of Visby and when you fell hungry head for Bakfickan. You'll have to book in advance since there's not so many tables. But it's worth the effort. Sunny days and evenings you can sit outside and enjoy the lively square surrounded by restaurants.

our airbnb hosts recommended this place, not only for being in the vicinity, and we were not disappointed! the sole waitress was very nice, helpful and knowledgeable about the the selections on offer. she offered a taste of the suggested beer before ordering and to switch the side for one starter with the one for another was no problem. good...

Always nice to try a new place. Had fried herring with mashed potatoes and butter. Crazy good! Washed this down with some local beer/pils a real treat.

We stopped by last Saturday without reservations and luckily was given a table at the small bar. The pre course was small crab cakes which were delicious. The sea bass was cooked to perfection served with a good quality recommended wine. Don't miss out on the desert!
