Most restaurants in Svolvær have the bad idea of ordering food and drinks at the bar.This leaves the customer with all the problems of queing. At Du verden the very friendly and service minded staff are waiting at the tables - like at any other normal restaurant. The food is fine and the atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed. Can be... More

When we came, the waitress didnt speak norwegian, and we had to get up and ask to get a menu, after 10mins of waiting.when we ordered we had to wait an hour before we got our food. We ordered hallibut, fish... More

We had Very good pizzas and a generous glass of wine each in bar area downstairs and we thought it was great value. The bar had a nice lively atmosphere and a great outlook over the harbour.

A bit expensive, but on the other hand you understand it as it´s on the best place of the city! Waiters and waitresses were a little bit messed / confused. The system is not really the best: when you pop in to the restaurant you don´t know in which table you will sit in, but still you should know your... More

Took Hurtigruten from Stokmarknes to Stamsund, via Trollfjord, and as the boat stopped for a couple of hours in Svolvær, decided to eat at Du Verden. The splendid rustic interior gives an excellent first impression. The food took a bit long, but the courses were great. It's a bit pricy, but well worth it.

Had a great bbq here which was cooked to perfection. There was a wide choice of food with various seafood, chicken, lamb, pork, beef and even suckling pig available. The accompanying salad/vegetable buffet was equally well stocked and all were served by friendly and helpful staff. We returned here for breakfast later in the week and found a nice selection...

Cosy, but modern restaurant. I have been to Svolvaer 2 times, and I have eaten here 3 times, and all 3 was excellent! The chef prepares a dish full of complex flavours, that intrigue and satisfy. And please choose either meat or fish, not the burger and pizza... Just my two cents. :)
