Busy but nice atmosphere

We called in on the off chance on a Friday night and realised that we should have booked as Du Verden is clearly very popular and all tables were either occupied or booked.

Was there alone, and wanted to try something special. They recommended their speciality: Grilled tørrfisk (dried fish). It was absolutely amazing, with excellent mushrooms and potatoes on the side. The mustard sauce was fantastic as well. Definitely recommend it, even though it's quite pricey!

We were her during the WC in Skrei-fishing. The place was packed with jolly people. It was hard to get a table, but when we finally did, the kitchen and waiters were very fast and efficient. I had a delicious cod and some of us very tasty pizzas. Meaning they have both the “exclusive” and the more regular food. The... More

My wife and I went here rather late so we decided to have the tapas plank and the 24 piece sushi/sashimi plate to share. We noticed that service was not totally on the ball when we arrived so we should have asked to have the order read back to us. But we ordered the sushi to come first and the... More

For three and a half hour, we were only asked for something to drink once. The coffee for the dessert was picked... More

Du Verden is beautifully situated by the sea in Svolvær harbour. Excellent food, good service and a warm atmosphere. Well worth a visit! With Approx. 100 women after one days' conference: tapas at Du Verden. Superb!

We ate inside where the waiters do wait the tables. The food was excellent, though expensive. We actually ate here twice - my husband loved the chicken pasta and had it both nights. I did try the mussels which were well cooked, but the portion is huge! The restaurant gets quite busy, but it is delicious. We received excellent service.... More
