We went there for the first day of the season. The waitress and the chef are really nice. The dishes are absolutely amazing and you will not be hungry when you leave. The view is fantastic. Everything is clean and well decorated. Nothing else to say than see you soon!

Best in town and perhaps all Lofoten. We were surprised to discover excellent cuisine, seen some quite poor experiences we had above the Artic Circle. Chapeau. Reserve early and be ready to pay above average.

Wanting an amazing dinner for our last day in the Lofoten Islands, we found out that Fiskekrogen is rated as a top restaurant. So, we drove from Leknes to Henningsvaer. We were not disappointed in the food, the ambiance and the views. Our waiter was super friendly, and attentive, in spite of the fact that the restaurant was very busy.... More

Good fish restaurant with a deserved reputation. We all enjoyed our choices but i felt it just missed, relative to , say, the best fish restaurants in other locations, including London. And nowhere in Norway is cheap, so that has to be taken into account! So just don't over-expect.

This place was recommended to is by local friends. We went there for a family dinner. Fish and chips was very tasty, also seafood soup (rather cream) was great, then we can highly recommend Cod and Ling. Service very nice, good advice when comes to wine selection. And the location and view from the restaurant is very pleasant.

A real treat, this restaurant and its neighboring bar with deck terrace and wonderful view. Well serviced (thanks again Marcus), good food and wine. The fish soup was a bit dull according to my taste, but fine. The atmosphere is a bit posh.

We ordered the classic fish soup and another fish dish. They were both excellent. With a nice view of Henningsvær from our table, it was a very nice experience. The service was also very good. Probably the best restaurant in Henningsvær. Although the manu could have been even more spectacular, Fiskekrogen offers a sough after experience that shouldn't be missed... More

If you come to Henningsvær, treat yourself well and visit Fiskekrogen for a good dinner. We had fish soup, the rare fish "lange" and creme brule. A perfect dinner. Good service, good atmosphere, good guests and good hosts. What more can you expect?

It can be that this restaurant suffers from lack of staff in high season: we got the starter as expected, but then it all stopped up and we got main course more than an hour after we ordered it after having asked for it. When this happened I had myself to say to the waitress, who was albeit kind but... More
