 Thin Åland-style pizzas

The Niska restaurant concept has been developed by the famous chef, Michael Björklund, from Åland. At Niska, we serve you Plåtbröd, thin Åland-style pizzas, made with high-quality ingredients. We make our own tomato sauce and the plåtbröd is topped with long aged cheese from Åland Mejeriet (ÅCA), the dairy of the Åland islands. An attempt to translate plåtbröd into English could be ”sheet metal bread”, but we can assure you it tastes a lot better than it sounds!

Algoth Niska - king of smugglers

Algoth Niska lived and worked during the Prohibition Law in Finland and was a legendary smuggler of spirits. The smuggling of liquor took him on exciting adventures on stormy seas and many escapes from the coast guard.

Algot Niska smugglarkungen

”Skummet yr omkring bogen och ögat stirrar och spejar, söker ett vänligt glimmande ljus långt ute på havet, där skall hon finnas nå’nstans, skutan med last ifrån lyckligt lottade länder, där vinet är glädje och icke ett brott, som skall sonas likt mördarnas och tjuvens. Se på det kallt! Tror någon kristen själ att Hösterman nå’nsin känner ruelsens agg med tusen litrar i ladan? Illa känner I då, fanatiker, skärgårdens söner”
