Nice location, but plain and expensive food

Du Verden is nicely located by the harbour in Svolvær and it is a nice restaurant. The waitress was pleasant and attentive. I went for the shrimps, which was as expected. It is hard to go wrong with shrimps as they are brought fresh in from the sea. My girlfriend had a fish soup that was just ok... read more

Raw chicken, no thanks. Mayonaise is not Aioli. Stay away from this place if you are hungry. The cappuccino was good tho, but everything they serve here is extremely expensive.

We stopped for dinner one friday evening and were seated in a corner next to a door. When I asked for the door to be closed because of the draft, I was told it wasn't possible, to let the staff go through. The food was very average, very expensive, completely over rated.

We (a family of four) ate here on two different occasions during the summer; once we sat outside in the sun and once inside. At the first occasion the place was really busy (weekend and good weather), but the waiters were still very attentive and quick, accomodating us with a high chair, bread for the children etc. We had pizzas,...

Situated on the pier with plenty of outdoor tables, this place would be great for lunch in the sunshine if the service and food had been better. Not that the food was below average, but it did not stand up to the standard of the location and prices. The worst thing about this place however, is the service. From we... More

The restaurant was full when we arrived but the got a table in about 15 minutes. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. Its a bit pricey but then again we ordered one of the most expensive dishes.

After many meals made from fish and shellfish we hunted for a jucy hamburger. We for sure found it here!!! Delicious dark bread (just marvellous!!), juicy meat with bacon, pickeled cucumber and cheese. Perfect pommes frites with perfect aioli. Nicely places at the harbour - your can see the Hurtigruta dock and feel the great ambiente. Just try it!!!

I had fish soup here earlier, and at a 45 minute hurtigrute stop my wife and I had fishsoup and beer ! Pleasant and VERY fast service, but soup was lukewarm (not a big hassle when time was of essence, though) and pretty expensive. Lots of customers and high spirits. We made the boat !
