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.

I had a a delicious omelette for lunch and a great breakfast at this restaurant. The staff were extremely friendly and there's a nice atmosphere in the restaurant and bar area, too. You can choose restaurant style tables or more coffee shop comfy chairs in the bar area.

Although the restaurant was quite deserted, the food was fresh and delicious. Both my husband and I got the Taste of Finnmark sampling menus. We got one each of the two choices--one was the grilled tørrfisk and the other was the reindeer. In addition the restaurant had a good selection of Norwegian microbrew beers. We left feeling very satisfied.

Hearing that this restaurant was in a Thon Hotel made me a little reluctant to go there as Thon Hotels normally is connected with the restaurants named Egon. If you like food don't bother going to any of those. I have a feeling that Haldde has been here since before Thon took over the hotel but cannot say for sure.... More

Had an awesome time here. The decor and lighting were homely and the restaurant was really quiet - just the way we like it. Kristine, our server, really went out of her way to make us feel welcome and the reindeer steak we had was absolutely amazing. You won't oftrn hear me say that £30 on a meal was money... More

Reindeer steak was good and tender, but red wine was cork-defective. Waitress´s knowhow was weak, couldn´t make difference between sweet and dry wines!). Reataurant´s interior is cozy.

Dear Sir/mam Thank you for your comments, we will definitely look at our staff training regarding wines. Glad you liked the reindeer and interior though and hopefully if you ever come back we will make sure you wine great as well! More

Had the opportunity to have seal for supper. To me, it tasted like liver. Made Kristine (the server) laugh. A relaxing establishment, being dressed up or in casual, you were made to feel comfortable.

You can have local food, cooked in a very tasty way... and the way the meal is prepared is just very arty We had a wonderful desert in a caramel hand made plate!
