Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 20 September 2023

This restaurant was highly recommended to us, and we would agree that it serves perhaps the best food in Visby. It is centrally located inside the old, walled city.

Booking a table was complicated. No truffles on the menu. The dishes were not served at the same time to the people of our group, there were at least 5 minutes between them. The lamb they served was ok, although cooked too much , but...the sauce was way too strong, which killed the flavour of the lamb. The interior is nice but the waiters only average friendly, some 3 out of 5 -( , especially regarding the tipping at the end of the dinner. Not a place to return for usMore

Our entire group of 9 people found the service to be extremely disappointing. Despite not being overly demanding, the treatment we received fell far short of satisfactory. For instance, we were not provided with drink menus and had to specifically request them. Our waiter seemed...more interested in anything other than attending to us. On the rare occasions we did receive attention, it was through inappropriate jokes, like jesting about pouring water on our younger guests' heads. When it came to tasting the wine, the waiter walked away, and after waiting for 5 minutes, we had to remind the server to pour it into our glasses. There were no inquiries about the food, and once again, we were neglected. Additionally, there was no expression of gratitude upon our departure. The following day, we opted for the pizzeria across the street and enjoyed significantly better service. It is incredibly disheartening because the food itself was of good quality, but if you value service, I advise against coming here. Despite having read multiple reviews, I naively dismissed their criticisms regarding the service. It was an interesting experience, but one I will not repeat.More

We spent our last night on Visby here. Had to book 2 days in advance as it was so popular. I understand why. The service staff are very attentive and friendly. Food was excellent and beautifully presented . A good selection of wines. Highly recommended

Great service and amazing food. The best thing the waitress did was to ask how long we wanted to wait between the starters and the main courses.

We booked here for our first evening on Gotland and really enjoyed our early dinner. We can recommend the toast skane, the lamb and the kött bular. All meals can be ordered in small versions which is great to have a maximum of different taste...throughout the dinner. The service is very friendly and the atmosphere very familiar. Attention: you always have to book for this place.More

We called ahead to get a reservation but the place was fully booked. We stopped by anyway and they squeezed us in. We were waited on by a super friendly and knowledgeable man in his 40s. We couldn’t be happier. We had a cotés du...Rhône red which was delightful. The four of us had lobster and streak tartare appetizers and NY strip, char, and Swedish mest ball entrees. All delicious. We’ll be back in Visby in October and we’ll make sure we come back to this placeMore

We really enjoyed our dinner at Gamla Masters. The restaurant is small but they made the most of all the space including the bar area, lounge couch and restaurant. This also contributed to a good atmosphere. The food was good, portions were good size and...they offered daily options. We enjoyed the food and left full and content. It is traditional Swedish food! Our waiter was really nice as well. The only thing that bothered us (even impacted our experience) was the annoying bartender. He was continuously out in the restaurant talking to the table next to us, which was really close to ours. We couldn't focus on our own experience with him standing there making jokes with his friends at the table next ours. It was really bothersome and shouldn't be ok. Overall I hope they think about that for future, otherwise the experience was really great!More

Found this place for a little Thursday night dinner and were so pleased we did. The Skagen was 5* and the meatballs certainly hit the spot too! The atmosphere and staff were perfect - and I liked the fresh flowers in the loo! Would definitely...go back.More

Apparently a local must and it's easy to understand why. We had dinner on a Saturday in February and it was lovely. The food was well prepared, great texture, temperature and the local beer tasted great. Even the music was spot on, not to noise...and almost curated by someone with excellent taste. The staff where friendly even though it was almost packed, they where only two on the floor. Be sure to book in advance! If not, there might be a chance to sit at the bar but there where no available tables for drop ins. I can only recommend it!More

Finding a genuine restaurant in a medieval town like Visby may not be easy, but ”G:a Masters” - the old master - delivers! From letting you sample the wine served by the glass to serving it from the labelled bottle once you have decided, service...is top notch! Friendly service, excellent plates - I can recommend the Kalix roe starter and the pepper steak main course - but do not miss the daily specials on the black board! If you want to meet locals - after 22:00 the place change from excellent dining to the bar where the locals hang out! A good place to really catch some local flavour!More

Might not be the cosiest of restaurants in Visby, but it is an old classic that serves great food. A lot to chose from when it comes to eating and drinking. A big plus that they are more or less all open 365

I ate here alone on a recent visit to Visby. I called ahead for a reservation and when I arrived there was a nice table set for one, which I appreciated. The service was both thoughtful and relaxed. The vegetarian option was recommended and it...was surprising and delicious. The restaurant manages to be friendly, lively, and elegant. I often feel awkward dining solo, but here I was very comfortable.More
