We had dinner here and loved the couryard setting; we also thought the food was quite good and service top-notch. As others have said, it's rather old-school (down to the retro faux-military uniforms on the wait staff!), but it had a certain charm that we all found enchanting. One minor glitch was the fact that the grilling is done outside, and from time to time the smoke blew into the dining area and it got to be annoying after a while. Main courses were perfectly prepared and presented, though their signature dessert (mulberry parfait) was a disappointment. It's quite pricey, but I'd definitely go back on a special occassion where the setting is as important as the food. Enjoy!

Liked the summer terrace, liked the food, liked the service.

It's expensive but that's how good restaurants cost in Visby. The only negative thing was a vegetarian dish (the only one on the menu). It was tasty, yes, but too little. Strange that a dish with meat was much bigger. Vegetarian one was tiny, I would sat it was as a starter. As if vegetarians are in general not getting hungry and don't like to eat just because of they don't meat and fish...
The dessert (lemon tartlet with fresh berries) was outstanding!

This is a very very classic and old school restaurant in a great almost medieval building. Menu is robust classic Swedish dishes combined with some french cuisine. If you go there with the right expectation its great. Very good food, attentive and friendly service and a pretty good winelist.

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.

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.
