cosy restaurant in old style with friendly staff but rather limited menu (a few fish dishes and 1 meat - lamb dish). Good quality food however but very expensive wine list (even to Norwegian standards). Worthwhile a visit !

Exacting preservation of a wonderful old building. Friendly professional service and fantastic food. The brandade and bacalao were my favourites.

Based in what was the town's original shop there are plenty of signs of the area's primary industry - fishing. The setting is charming and relaxing with attentive but not intrusive service.

Dinner was edible but unremarkable. Fish is primarily your choice. The reindeer was interesting as we hadn't tried it before, nice gamey flavor. The ambiance was romantic and our waitress went out of her way for us. We just felt the price was a tad...More

Description
Fishrestaurant with stockfish as our speciality Svinoya Rorbuer includes one of the most distinctive restaurants in the Lofoten Islands. The "Borsen Spiseri" is housed in a venerable quayside warehouse dating back to 1828, and considerable emphasis has been placed on maintaining the building's original features. Most of the building's historical attributes have been preserved, providing an atmosphere with an aroma of tar and rope. The dishes that are served here, are made from Lofoten's unique and fresh, local ingredients. Borsen Spiseri is open every day 18:00 - 22:00 and have 120 seats! Borsen Spiseri fit for any occasion Whether you come alone, with your family, friends or with all your colleagues, we guarantee to do our utmost to ensure that you will be satisfied. Guaranteed unique and fresh, local ingredients Both meat and fish dishes are served here, made from Lofoten's unique and fresh, local ingredients. Our focus is on local produce and our speciality is stockfish delivered from the fish factory 50 meters away. In the same building we find the former "krambua" or old general store, which is a tiny museum in its own right. Old wares and equipment from bygone times still hang from the ceiling there, taking you 100 years back in time.
