The restaurant is based not far from the old harbour and from the centre hotel. It offers a seafood buffet for 6450kr and you can have starters, mains and dessert for this price. You can have the starters or mains or desserts only for a smaller price (can’t remember the price sadly) and also a la carte should you wish. They have reasonably priced drinks and free Wi-Fi. The starters was a selection of cold starters such as salmon, herrings, a quiche style mix of fish and shrimp, breads, soup, and cured or smoked whale. I couldn’t really detect the flavour of whale if I’m honest. The mains had salt baked cod, pasta, cous cous, salad, freshly cooked meal, blackened salmon and another main course.
The desserts were a mousse style dessert, cheesecakes and fruit. Coffee was also included.
The staff were very friendly but I do feel that unless you try to eat sufficient amount to cover your cost then you’ll feel hard done by. I had the buffet and two beers for a total of 8250kr (£45) but then being from Yorkshire I would feel hard done by, just kidding.
