Excellent reindeer steak

Uninspiring view of the petrol station from my table - given that Alta fjord is really close by and the views are incredible there, it was surprising to sit at a table for quite an expensive (but delicious) steak with a view of the garage. Maybe I am too picky....

Probably would go there for dinner rather than lunch. As lunch choice was very limited and it was not possible to choose from dinner menu. Staff is very nice and attentive but not very flexible-we arrived just 2 hours before dinner started (at 4!!! Pm) for lunch and we're not given opportunity to benefit from much wider choice of dishes... More

Dear guests Thank you for giving us your feedback, it is much appreciated. You are quite right, we are a dinner restaurant with a lunch option and therefore you might have encountered a few obstacles during your visit. We do not normally open the restaurant until 1600 each day and therefore the chefs are not present to prepare dinner before... More

Since there are limited restaurant in Alta, we ended up eating here 3 times.. Stockfish was the best, followed by the steak. Though, the price is a bit above average.

The service and advice in the choice of menu was good. And since it is one of the few good restaurents in Alta, it can only be recommended. The food was well cooked and there was plenty of it.

The reindeer dishes are exceptionally good. The seal steak was well cooked and unusual. The service was informed and friendly. The dining room is small and cosy.

Dear guest Thank you very much for your review of our restaurant, we appreciate it. Glad to hear you enjoyed your reindeer steak and that overall you were happy about your meal.

The staff at this hotel and restaurant is something else. i have seldom seen such nice and cheerful people that will do anything to make the guests happy. We couldn't get rooms at his hotel but will try to next time. Food and assortment of beer and akvavit is great as well as the very cosy and rustique restaurant.
