Bagarstugan Cafe & Vin

Reviewed By AlterSchwede13 - Boblingen, Germany

Centrally located in Mariehamn, around a yard where you find a handful of restaurants, you cannot miss this small historic building. The charming Interieur of old living rooms, chairs and tables is warm and inviting. Unfortunately the outside area is not that nice, more looking like the backyard. However: delicous cakes, karnell bullar, sandwiches.
Woth to have a stop here to enjoy ambiente.

We ate in the bar which has a similar menu to the restaurant. Our waiter was very conscientious and really knew his beers. The salmon and the burger were very nice and turned up quickly.

Ala Carte restaurant in the west harbour of Mariehamn. Enjoy the evening sun and sunset on our Terrace or inside the restaurant. During the high season we do serve lighter dishes from the Terrace menu.

Had an excellent dinner at the indoor dining room of ÅSS (there is also adjacent casual Terrace dining). Cod, beef, chicken, were all excellent choices, each with different potatoes or gnocchi and veg. Creme brûlée, ice cream & berries both great desserts. We were there during shanty festival and therefore entertained by two different shanty singing duos. Leisurely dining; restaurant was at full capacity.

We looked for this Cafe because it was said that the Cafe is gluten free /there are gluten free options according to Tripadvisor presentation. The Åland pancake was not gluten free and there were only two G-options. So we left.

Reviewed By randomhousereader - London, United Kingdom

We ate here twice during our stay on the Islands. Lovely food both times:we can vouch for the grilled tuna, beefburger and pasta dishes. Very fresh and tasty vegetables .Great service and friendly staff.We do not speak Swedish or Finnish but the staff all spoke fluent English which was helpful to us. Dino's also seemed very popular with local residents which is always a good sign.

There's nothing like eating dockside during nice weather. This was a great place for lunch. Daily specials are always a good deal. I had a shrimp salad and my wife had grilled salmon. The portions were substantial, the service a little slow.

Nautical

Reviewed By amarcord83 - Oslo, Norway

I enjoyed a festive dinner with colleagues in a chambre séparée at the Nautica (formerly the Nautical Club; its history goes back several years). Had an excellent starter of various picked herrings (a regional specialty) and a really good cheese, then reindeer steak as a main course. Whilst this menu might well be considered to be quite conventional and traditional, everything was very good and came with excellent wine pairings. Staff were very friendly and attentive.

What a lovely place for coffee, lunch or tea. The quality of bread, sandwiches & cakes is superb and the couple who run the Enterprise are very friendly and helpful. Their garden is a delight and wonderful to sit in on a sunny day. It is certainly worth a stop.

Wonderful food at reasonable price. Delicious sausages made at the brewery with sautéed potatoes, fresh salad of lettuce, pea shoots and seeds, and a light garlic mayonnaise. The vegetarian option was also very tasty apparently. The beers were offered in tiny glasses which let us try several even though we had to drive later. Highly recommended.

Reviewed By Playfairest - Birmingham, United Kingdom

The food here is good but it's just a shame it is more style than substance. The apricot bread was lovely and we really enjoyed the raspberry lemonade. The service is a little slow but the main reason for the low rating is that the coffee is served in very stylish mugs which have been artistically squashed into heart shapes but have no handles. I cannot get over being given a coffee mug so hot I have to wrap it in a napkin to drink it because handles are simply not trendy.
