“Once great, now only so-so”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

This is a perfect place for those who like their restaurants a bit more up-market. Quite expensively priced, but on a good day they serve excellent meals. However the standard of the food varies a lot from day to day and we would say the same about the service.
Do NOT take the "Plankstek" (Steak on a plank). It's a large meal, but not worth 275 SEK. Go for the lamb or fish.

“A Magic Garden, Succulent Swedish Starters and an Outdoor Grill”
Reviewed 5 August 2010

Lindgården is far from the only good restaurant in Visby but it has so many unique features (history, its garden, well-prepared traditional food) that this is just one level higher than the rest.
They propose Swedish classics such as "Toast Skagen" : Creamy, fresh shrimps served with lumproe (swedish Caviar) and with a touch of Dill. The grilled meats and lobsters are prepared with unusual ingredients, often coming from the various corners of Gotland.

“Best food in Visby”
Reviewed 7 September 2008

I took my husband here for a special meal on his birthday, and we were bowled over by the wonderful food. It was head and shoulders above anything we had had in Gotland, or even in Stockholm. We both had the lamb, which was absolutely delicious, and our desserts were equally sublime (I had a parfait with cherries from the garden).

I loved the decor, which is very typically Swedish, with loads of local paintings on the walls.

The service was also excellent, although it was the only place in Sweden where we were not given a basket of bread (just as well as the food was very filling).

I did wish that we had been able to book a room there, as I was dying to see what the breakfasts were like.

I cannot recommend highly enough.

Thank N1Traveller
