Good fishrestaurant

Very good restaurant in Henningsvær. My fish soup was very good, and the staff was friendly. My main course was a bit over baked and dry. But the taste was good.

Visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Henningsvær. Food were very good and service were excellent. Well worth a visit if you are passing by. Quite busy, so book a table.

Quality restaurants in Lofoten come at a price. This is one of them. The (too) high price is compensated by location. Insist on a table facing the harbour and you will enjoy seaside activity throughout your meal. If you accept a table in the inner room you will miss out on this activity. We had a very nice fish soup... More

Poor slow service, I had cod which was ok but not really great. The side dishes where better than the actual fish. We had a vegetarian in the company which got two avocados with cheese, not really worth 195 nok and definitely not a "main course", for me it looked like an appetizer or maybe a snack. Of course this... More

This restaurant is very popular, and has a great location on the waterfront. The staff were helpful explaining some of the dishes and attending to our table. The food was very good, however a lighter batter on the fish (fish and chips meal) would have highlighted the delicate flavour of the fish better. The fish soup was delicious. The prices... More

This restaurant is very popular and nicely located close to the harbour in Henningsvær. We had great expectations to this restaurants signature dish: fish soup.. Unfortunately their signature dish did not quite meet our high expectations. We have had better, and it was a bit watery and lacked flavour, so average rate for the fish soup. On the other hand,...

It was our second time in Henningsvær and our second visit to Fiskekrogen. Last year we was more lucky with the weather so we could sit outside. This year we had to move inside who also was a nice plate to be. We ordered fishsoup and bacalao. It was very good, espesially the bacalao. The staff was friendly and serviceminded.

Lunch for 2 on Sunday afternoon on the terrace. Food was fresh and well presented. Lunch menu was all fish with good selection from soup to sushi. Service was fast, friendly and functional. The scenery is unbelievable. The place is not cheap per se.

We had a nice meal with starters and main dish in Fiskekrogen. The food was good, but had a bit higher expectations really (also given the price).

Do you expect to get fish in your Bacalao? Of course you do. But not at his restaurant. The Bacalao you are served contains potatos, onions, and lots of tomatoes, but no cod. During a week in Lofoten with many excellent meals, this is the one and only negative experience. The waitresses from Sweden do not hjelp. Warning: Stay away... More
