Went here basically for a drink, since we hadn't booked a table. Eventually, we ended up ordering some tapas. We had some olives, meatballs and scampi. All dishes were very tasteful. The staff were on their feet and attended us very well. If you visit...Harstad, don't miss this place.More

As walk-in couple looking for a place to dine, unbiased as new in town, the place was already loaded due to a private arrangemen. The staff however made efforts to give us a place and soon we could get a table. We had typical Norwegian...dishes and found them excellent. Very tasty, solid portion without being loaded, accompanied with sides that matched perfectly. The service was great and staff was at our side as soon as we paused eating, asking gently if we had any requests. While it was not our intention, the good experience made us visit the next day as well. We just wanted to seek out more places, but in the end returned to such a good establishment. And we were treated with same expedient and professional service. We again tried Norwegian dishes, differen this time, and find they were excellent to our palate, size and sides in good combination. Warming: be early for dinner or make a reservation! It is a popular place and you may find no vacant table.More

The restaurant is of a higher standard than the usual which is reflected in its presentation, prices and customers. A main will cost around 250-400 and it looks great once served. I chose 3 tapas dishes which were tiny! The chorizo slices were extremely small...and the days special of "deer sliced meat" could have flown off in the wind it was so thin. It tasted ok but for the price of the serving, l was left really hungry and really disappointed. When we originally walked in (group of 7) it was almost as if the waiter looked down on us as we were not dressed up like some of the customers. That l do not like. When told we would need to leave by 7 in a way of "take it or leave it" , l was a little shocked. That's not a good first impression. After the tapas l didn't order desert or more drinks but the others did, so the bill at the end was considerable but was of course paid without a second thought. Lesson here is, be nice to everyone, even if they do not fit into your perfect mould of what a customer should look like, because you could end up in a "pretty woman" episode.More

We had tapas, most of the food we choose was nice, but the chilli and garlic scampi was really bland and tasteless. There was no spice whatsoever. And the aioli was lacking garlic as well. It was disappointing and weird.

Very good service. It is advisable to book a table beforehand. We managed to get the last free table really early in the evening. Long tapas meny and I could recommend tapas praws – very delicious. I would say that the prices were a bit...high for this place.More

I've been to Bark a couple of times, and every time I've been met with good service and great food. They have something for everyone, and the atmosphere is really good. The first time I was there I sat by the door and the volume...was a bit loud, but a bit further inside the atmosphere is really good. Will be back!More

Found this gem of a place just walking along the harbour front. Very welcoming, we had no reservation, but no problems. Food was excellent. Started with a selection of good quality Tapas followed by a main course of Cod. Service was top quality, good selection...of drinks including a few good local beers and the food was spot on.More

Visited this place for a late dinner, and we all agreed this was probably one of the best alternatives downtown Harstad. I went for the tapas and it was tasty and not to pricey.

We all had the club sandwich. It was very good. One of the best I’ve had. We came a bit early so they only had the lunch menu. The menu didn’t have many options, only 4-5 dishes. Service was ok. A little bit pricey.

Had dinner with friends early July. We had no reservation but managed to get a nice table even if the restaurant was almost full. The service was wonderfully attentive and friendly from the moment we walked in. Food was very tasty and prepared to perfection;...it was also served in an expedient manner considering the place was very busy. Recommended whole-heartedly. Reservations advisable during peak season/hours.More
