With four friends we visited Skarven and Arctandria seafood restaurant again. The cos (mølje) buffer was excellent, with all condiments: tongue, liver, row.. The baccalao however was far to spicy for my wife and gave her stomach trouble for a day..

Lovely location and atmosphere with a log fire burning. We had lunch here and the food was good, what you would expect from a good pub. Choice of burger, stew, bacalao, soup etc Staff were fine but a smile would have helped.

Not breakfast, not cheap, unless very late, as well into the day, and/or you are so well off that it would be considered cheap. But they have really good dinners. Recommended.

Hi You cannot eat breakfast there. Although the restaurant is expensive, it was worth every penny, the food was excellent with great wines and perfect view.
