We had dinner here during our stay at the Scandic Alta Hotel. We had a selection of dishes from the menu. The food was quite good and the staff very nice and efficient. Cost is high, as usual in hotel restaurants and in Norway, but not outrageously so compared to the quality.

The restaurant has excellent buffet with good price (considering Norway price). We also tried dessert with cloudberry which was tasting very different and we liked it. The stuff are very helpful. Specially Charlotte has helped us by explaining various local cuisine. Breakfast buffet was also very nice with lot of choices. This restaurant can provide vegetarian food as well.

Highly recommended, it is in the Scandic Hotel Alta. Delicious is Boknafisk which is a partially dried cod. Less tough and more tender than stockfish and more tasty than fresh cod. Very good is also pan-fried arctic char. Desserts are the house specialty with cloudberries and ice cream being the most delicious dessert. Price are reasonable if you think this... More

Cannot fault the food. Well prepared, very tasty and well presented. Menu is fairly limited. We ate in restaurant twice during our stay and were not disappointed on either occasion. Decor/atmosphere is consistent with a hotel chain and was only down side but service was very good. Prices are very high compared with UK but other restaurants in Alta were... More
