Arken Garden

One of the archipelago's swankiest venues, the on-site restaurant of Mariehamn's Arkipelag Hotel is an open-air affair with excellent food and drinks, offering fresh-off-the grill seafood and meat, all accompanied by live music at the weekends.


Åland boasts a staggering variety of high-quality local produce. Apart from island-grown vegetables, there are lamb, pork, beef (meats also come in sausage form), and seafood (fish, especially pike, along with staples like smoked salmon and herring), as well as a range of dairy products and free-range eggs. Åland's chefs really have a wealth of prime ingredients to work with, and these are made excellent use of at some of the archipelago's fine restaurants.
