Very conveniently located within the Scandic Ishavshotel with good hours. The bread here is particularly delicious and the portions are large. We enjoyed a hearty meal on our first night here. Docking 1 star as there wasn't anyone to seat us at first and we stood around idly for 5 minutes until the waitress appeared. However, it was a quiet... More

Cheap meat at bar restaurant burger. Garbage. Fish dinner nice downstairs. Find a fabulous burger close by at Burgr or Hauken.

We were brought very nice fresh baked bread but had to wait an hours for our starters which were tasty but very small. We then had to wait a further hour for the main courses to arrive. The red wine sauce and and roast potatoes were wonderful, my steak was difficult to cut and chew, I have asked for it... More

My wife, daughter and I had a meal here. The starter King Crab legs were minute and over cooked. Our main course, Halibut, a most delicate and delicious fish was ruined by being over cooked and it was tough and dry. Unforgivable from a professional kitchen!

We went here for dinner with another couple last weekend. The restaurant itself is nice and cosy. We had different seafood starters - all perfectly cooked and presented on the plate. For main we had beef and steaks which was super delicious. Not enough salads and/or potatoes with the main though, so you might want to order extra sides. Deserts,coffee... More

Since we stayed at this hotel, the bar restaurant was very handy upstairs from the lobby. The menu included more than the usual "bar food" so even my gluten-free husband was satisfied. The bartender was friendly & quick to serve us.

I ordered "kveite". The fish was absolutely perfect. You cant cook a fish better than they did. The vegetables were perfectly cooked, too. Both the fish and the vegetables had that rare quality that I can try to describe as having their original structure intact and still are perfectly cooked and juicy. Top marks from me!

There was a good choice at the breakfast buffet (included in our room rate) and there was always somewhere to sit even when busy. We booked a meal in the Roast Restaurant. The food was good but the service was very slow. It was so slow the waitress told us that we would receive 50% off the price of our... More
