THsi old salt storage offers brilliant location and interior for a restaurant. YOu cand watch the see and comings and goings of the little harbour while enjoying excellent food. Especially all fish cources were great, while meat more average. So really a place to eat fish.

Location and staff is very nice, the food however... This restaurant used to hold a high standard, now is more like a trailers truck stop. This is a nice place to take a beer and a fish soup for lunch and enjoy the beautiful view.

Tasted like something was missing and something else added - the result not as good as it use to be. Fish and... More

A must visit restaurant, traditional Norwegian fish recipes prepared and presented with care and attention. Excellent table service catering for both small and larger groups (2-18). Good selection of wines excellent and limited range of fish fresh and supplied daily.

I have fond childhood memories from this restaurant, which is still said to be the best for seafood in town. We had a three course meal, with a bottle of white wine (birthday). It cost €250! I was gobsmacked! The food was not up to standard by a long shot, the service was lousy (untrained staff for the summer season)... More

We had dinner here in July 2013 and we were pleasantly surprised that the customer service was friendly and relaxed, even on a busy day. The place was packed, but we managed to get a spot outside. Outside they have a cheaper and more relaxed menu, while inside it is a bit more formal. We were only looking for a... More
