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

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 !

Dropped in for a late lunch on a rainy day, thinking that spending the afternoon here would be consolation for the miserable weather. Modern, airy, upmarket bistro style with a mix of communal bar tables, a large "family-style" table and individual tables as well. The two story wraparound windows look out onto the large terrasse on the port square. The... More

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. However, the waitress gave us the option of sitting at the bench at the window which we did. Service was good and our meals were very tasty... More

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!
