“Nice local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Arresten is a gem in a town which offers very little. The produce is local, nicely cooked, and good sized portions. The pricing is fair for Norway. I would certainly return if I was to find myself in Andenes again.

“Real Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

This is THE restaurant to go to in Andenes. The staff are truly lovely, and really willing to accommodate any special dietary requests. It's a cracking little place with a great interior, a microbrewery and a load of specialist teas for sale. We ate here 3 times, loved it. Highly recommend.

“Friendly, charming top quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Although the restaurant was crowded (Flight show + Rocker Launch Campaign of German DLR + MidSommar) we were offered a backroom for our own. High Quelity, good price ratio, extremely good home brewed beer, inventive and tastful food and a veeeerrrrryyy nice "svensak flicka" as waitress = two dinners 7 Person x 5 fingers up = 70 points (some of us would even come back for the nice waitress ;-) )

“Highly recommended for food, value and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Had a great meal and delightful evening here. Very cosy, warm and welcoming ambience, lots of interesting old books, photos and artefacts. Friendly, helpful service, excellent fresh, perfectly cooked cod and halibut maincourses, delicious desserts, good beers- and after all that , a surprisingly modest bill. Not highfalutin, and none the worse for that, highly recommended if you are in Andenes, or nearby.
