We were staying at the hotel, so had dinner there. It was expensive - over £100 for the two of us, and only one glass of wine. We had reindeer - mine was smoked which really tasted delicious - Ruth’s was more of a traditional steak but she preferred that. Ruth even had reindeer heart for starter.

Dear guest Thank you for reviewing both our restaurant and hotel, it is much appreciated. Glad to hear you enjoyed your meal and tried some of our local cousine but unfortunately found it a bit expensive. We use many local ingredients like reindeer meat and unfortunately it is very expensive to buy in and the prices in the restaurant reflect... More

The location of this place makes it even more exclusive that the rest of the hotels in town. Both service and food quality was at its best. Definitely a place to come back to.

Officially a meal we'll never forget. Stunning views, incredible flavours (5* quality) and the service of Silje (pronounced Celia in English) was divine. She helped make our experience unforgettable. We are used to fine dining in London, believe me, you want to try this food.

Delicious food based on Norwegian specialities, we ate here both our evenings in Alta, as it is the only decent restaurant in town, so we got to try several things on the menu. All the dishes held extremely high standard. Limited and average wine list, excellent food. Try the grilled stockfish!

Probably would go there for dinner rather than lunch. As lunch choice was very limited and it was not possible to choose from dinner menu. Staff is very nice and attentive but not very flexible-we arrived just 2 hours before dinner started (at 4!!! Pm) for lunch and we're not given opportunity to benefit from much wider choice of dishes... More

Dear guests Thank you for giving us your feedback, it is much appreciated. You are quite right, we are a dinner restaurant with a lunch option and therefore you might have encountered a few obstacles during your visit. We do not normally open the restaurant until 1600 each day and therefore the chefs are not present to prepare dinner before... More

Since there are limited restaurant in Alta, we ended up eating here 3 times.. Stockfish was the best, followed by the steak. Though, the price is a bit above average.

The service and advice in the choice of menu was good. And since it is one of the few good restaurents in Alta, it can only be recommended. The food was well cooked and there was plenty of it.

Uninspiring view of the petrol station from my table - given that Alta fjord is really close by and the views are incredible there, it was surprising to sit at a table for quite an expensive (but delicious) steak with a view of the garage. Maybe I am too picky....
