If you want a quality dining in Svolvær this is the place to go. The food was tasty and made out of fresh and healthy ingredients. The tables are nicely decorated, the restaurant is clean and inviting, and the service was good. Good prices versus quality, and almost the same price level as several alternatives in the area that serves... More

This restaurant has very high quality food, though the set menues seem to be very simular from time to time. They might change something, but I always end up feeling I have had the same meal before.

It is an elegant hotel restaurant linked to Thon Lofoten. The wide windows show the pictorial shape of Svolvaer harbour while you are eating some well prepared and well presented dishes of norwegian fish or seashell. There is a relaxed but a bit upmarket ambiance and a very good service level. Prices are in line with norwegian standard for a... More

The view across the harbour quay accounts for some of the high expense. The quality of the service is very good indeed, but the ability of the kitchen to respect dietary requirements is very limited: all dishes have been prepared ahead of time with their seasonings and all (problematical if one of the party has an allergy for black pepper);...

The sushi was really good. I ate sushi in the restaurant and I bought it to take away the day I left. Brilliant!

Nice place with excellent seafood - rather expensive but well worth it. Situated on the ground floor. Very friendly staff.

The service was average we waited for a long time for someone to ask for a bill. The food was ok, although menu seemed very interesting, because included local specialities, such as - whale, fuagra, cod, salmon.

The reindeer steak was absolutely fantastic and the suggested Argentine Malbec complemented it perfectly. Although the service was friendly and efficient, they appear to be severely short-staffed. The bill was a bit 'salted'.

This place has really improved this last year. I was here a year ago and was not particularly impressed, but this time it was great. Delicious food, beautifully presented. Probably the best restaurant in Lofoten. They can stil improve their service, but overall very good.
