Optimal location and good food

Dining here is a great experience. The drive to Henningsvaer is in itself beautiful. The restaurant is on the water and has large glass windows that look out to the water and the quaint buildings beyond. They have a very good fish soup. The whale appetizer didn't disappoint either. We had fish... read more

It is in a very good location with the view of the channel with the "rorbuer". We got salmon and halibut sashimi as a starter. The salmon was very good, as it always is in this country, but the halibut was even better. The mussels were just OK. Cod was perfect. No need for much seasoning, it was so fresh... More

Restaurant offers views of the charming harbor and a limited menu, from which I chose the cod (more exotic choices included cod tongues and whale steak). The fish was perfectly prepared, delicious, and attractively presented; as were the accompanying potato wedge and veggies. Nor did the price for such an excellent meal ($47., including a glass of wine) exactly break... More

Nice ambience, perfect location and attentive staff. The menu is quite limited. The food is well presented, but lacks seasoning - the fish soup that we had appeared to be based on cream, rather than fish stock, and tasted rather bland. Perfect for a meal with kids, not too exciting for grown ups.

We had the chance to eat at Fiskekrogen on several occasions both lunch and dinner. Being a party of five we sampled more or less everything sea related from their menu. The restaurant is nice with a good location. Seating indoor and outdoor. Local food of good quality. Worth the visit if you are in Henningsvær. Make sure you have... More

Had a lovely evening meal here with friends. Highly recommend the fish and chips. Sounds pedestrian, but it was the best meal of the four that were ordered. A light batter and generous fish.

We were 4 adults all having different main dish; on average we were all quite pleased with the food! The wine list could have been a bit more extensive, and the waiter a bit more attentive (filling up water and wine glasses as they were empty, coming and asking if we wanted coffees, desert etc), but all in all it...

Nice location on a canal, elegant setting. We had baccalao, that was tasty but somewhat stringy. Staff was kind. A bit overpriced. It is advisable to have a reservation, as it is always busy.
