Stopped in as we drove to A and had a lovely lunch. The food was fresh, delicious and in the best meaning of the word, simplicity on a plate. There isn't a spot (that we've found, anyway) on the Lofotens that isn't scenic, so of course this place had that going for it too!

This is one of best restaurants during my Lofoten Islands trip in September 2016. Started with wonderful creamy fish soup with lots of fresh cod, then had Cod Bacalao (Stock fish) for main which had rich flavour, and very tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant for experience local cuisine. Also staff from New Zealand were very friendly & attentive. Just... More

Everything about this experience was exceptional. Friendly and knowledgable staff, great ambiance and excellent food. I started my meal with the cured salmon and it was so good I could have ordered 3 of them and made that my meal. Thankfully, I took the advice of the waitress and ordered the stockfish (a Lofoten tradition). They dry the fish outside... More

A positive experience from the beginning to the end! If you want to taste some specialties from Lofoten' go there. Meals are delicious and in good proportions. The plates presentation was nice and the waitress was really considerate and smiley. A good option for who wants to spend a lovely dinner. Prices were according to the quality of their products...

Great service at a cozy place. The food is elegant and it is enough of it. Try the whale if you dear, it was some of the best i have tested. Everything with fish is also great here. In the summer you can sitt on the terrace and enjoy your meal and Lofoten Bier, but be aware of the Seagulls........ More

Maren Anna is a very good restaurant. The chef and his staff know how to make a very good and tasty fish soup where the fish is still solid and the vegetables have a bite. The halibut was very good and in balance with the accompanying vegetables and sauce. By the way the bread was outstanding too. Not to forget,... More

Uncertain of whether the drive from Leknes, Vestvågøy to Å, Moskenesøy was worth it for the beautiful views alone I ordered the whale steak. The inside seating of the restaurant appeared uninteresting and the interior looked a lot as if it was prepared by the same person who apparently designed Maren Anna's webpage back in the early 2000's. This became... More

We stopped in for a quick meal while exploring Sorvågen. It was about 4:05pm. The lunch menu was still available but was apparently switching to the dinner menu shortly. No one seated us which I am beginning to think is the custom here and we had to go up to order the food, again this has been common in other... More
