Smakbyn lived up to our expectations and even topped them! We had made an reservation and immediately upon arrival were assigned a finnish-speaking waiter. We had the Smakbyn Sangria non-alcoholic version and loved it! The dark bread and knackebröd was delicious and kitchen's regards (cauliflowersoup)...More

Had a lunch at Smakbyn and really enjoyed it. The meals where nicely prepared and tasted great. Apart from the food there is a small shop that sells locally produced items, and a distillery. And, most important, they have a treasure hunt for the kids.

I had heard about Smakbyn from other visitors and for sure they had told the truth. It is an outstanding restaurant where the staff focus on giving you the greatest. Our party of four had only main course and dessert and we loved our dishes....More

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...More

Smakbyn is a fantastic concept dreamt up by Micke Björklund and friends. The location near Kastelholm Castle is perfect when you're touring the island. The building itself is beautiful with lots of glass and timber, staff were all friendly and welcoming. The food is absolutely...More

I think I had too high expectations. Screaming babies, running kids and a huge dining room. Environment is not on top. Strange was also that there was almost no offer without alcohol. No alcohol free beer, that is strange as there are 100's of them...More

Simply, Smakbyn is the best restaurant in Åland. Fried perch files with spinach, new potatos and white wine sauce were from heaven. Everything were absolutely fresh and fabulous. The staff was very friendly. We tried to make our order in Swedish, but if the waiter...More

Our return visit two years later shows that the restaurant has maintained its ambitions to show the islands best food. Great place for local fish.
