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.

Bakfickan is an "institution" among the restaurants in Visby. The service is familiar and Quick, and the dishes are very tasty. A lot of local ingredients and special recepies.
