Nice atmosphere, great service, tasty food, beer and well chosen wine

The restaurant seemed closed when I arrived, but it's just their dim atmosphere. The best thing about the place was the service. They were very attentive and invisible at the same time. A perfect combo! They suggested I try "Lofotpils", a light local beer. And it was 5 stars. I should write a... read more

A small menu which they change every fortnight. All the waiters have tasted the menu and all the wines that go with, so they really know what they are serving. I recomend going for a 3- to 7-course package, including the wine. You get a different wine with every course and they match very well. When you sit down, you're... More

I have been to a lot of restaurants in my life, from small local restaurants in Provence to Gordon Ramseys flagship restaurant in London with 3 michelin stars. But this restaurant is really the top of the lot. Using mostly just local ingredients (even their butter is salted with salt from the famous saltstraumen) and serving the most deliciously composed...

Taken here for a business dinner after a long and testing 12 days on the go. Part of me would rather have just gone to bed but, had I done so, I would have missed an truly outstanding experience. Fresh local ingredients prepared with skill and precision and served and presented with passion. The fish was amongst the best I... More

I think this restaurant should be reviewed by the Michellin guide. This is an extremely good restaurant with local food and high service quality. Hurry to visit the place before the owners leave town for good this autumn.

I disembarked from the Hurtigruten ship after three nights from Bergen, which suited my travel frame, and took the night train back to Oslo. That has to be one of the world's greatest train rides. I Emailed ahead for a reservation, as the reviews here stated that they are necessary on weekends. This wasn't the case, as oddly enough, July... More

The resturant has put the bar high, and can deliver. Impressive to maintaine this standard in a small town. Fresh cod cooked to perfection, nice wine match. Nice small surprises with various delicious bread, local salt (Saltstraumen!) and butter. Friendly and very competent service.
