A nice waterside bar/restaurant which still opens late Sunday afternoon. The fish soup is very nice and same goes to fish and chips. Recommend to try the king crab starter as well.

Kaia is a cozy place with friendly staff. The reindeer stew was delicious, together with a local beer at reasonable prices

A lovely waterfront location, pleasant pub interior and fairly convenient to sit and pass the time for the Hurtigruten. Unfortunately passing the time was due to the service. The waitress at the bar was friendly and quick to order. The fish and chips took nearly...More

We had our last meal here, group of 7 seated on a round table, comfortable surroundings. My husband had lamb and son had reindeer burger and both said they were delicious. The rest of us had fish & chips which was well presented and tasty....More
