Awesome place, food and unforgettable moments! You must go if you ever visit Hauganes; delicious soup, coffee and desserts. We had a lovely time with Elvar who was very kind with us and officially made us part of The Rotten Shark Club!

Elvar gave us a tour of his fishing operation and then we enjoyed a meal at the restaurant. He shared fascinating stories and the food was delicious! Highly recommend!

Elvar, owner, provides a world class tour not only of the processing company, but of the fishing history of the region. The restaurant serves a diverse menu, but Cod is a must. For the world traveler...try the fermented shark...nice.

Such a warm welcome by the owner to his family run quirky Viking themed restaurant. Delicious home cooked dishes and amazing cakes. Then the wonderful gem of hot tubs right on the black beach. A perfect afternoon.

The fish and chips here were MUCH better than anything I’ve had in the UK. The batter is flavorful and the fish is moist and delicious. It’s very fresh, caught by the owner’s brother. The place has a very local, authentic vibe.

Stopped in here while camping. Loved the feel of the restaurant right on the ocean. Had the tourist fermented shark and glad we could say we did. Pretty gross. Lol. Had fish and chips and pizza. Great place to enjoy!

The restaurant is a classic set on small fisher docks. The restaurant gives a clean appearance. The menu is very small, but offers enough for everyone. Salads, a few pizzas, fish of course and hamburger. The drinks are served in bottles and juice in there...More
