Fine dining in Nuuk, Greenland, at the Sarfalik restaurant was an experience to rival fine dining in DC. Except I wore hiking boots... Our 9 course meal included the lobster bisque, musk ox roast, and elder flower dessert. Also reindeer tartare, salted scallops, and much more.

To get to the restaurant area you had to pass by a long narrow corridor. No sea-view from the tables. The staff need further education and certainly the attitude from the staff could be much better. Despite of this fact the most dishes are innovative and focused on using greenlandic meat, fish and spices.

I have eaten there on several occasions during my stays. They have a great tasting menu, which I highly recommend.. The tasting menu usually consists of things such as musk ox, reindeers, lam, and local fish and herbs such as arctic thyme and arctic Angelica leaves and flowers..

This is the best restaurant in Nuuk, because of the variety and quality of courses on the menu and the minimalistic and beautiful environment.

My brothers eat alot so the servings would not be enough for them, but the food is always very well made and consistent - Greenlandic with a Scandinavian twist. I have tried reindeer and catfish dishes, both lovely.

I visited in early August. You need to understand that this hotel is a Business Hotel. It's low season is June to late August when most Danish and other Europeans take their annual vacation. So the restaurant only opens for lunch during this period. And with an extremely limited menu. I chose the 275DKK mixed Greenlandic plate. The menu said... More

Go for the local dishes with fish. The chef knows how to prepare and present the meal. The staff have knowledge to recommend perfect wine.

chose for the tasting menue of 7 courses (there is another one with 9). The starters are tiny but not inappropriately for a 7-course menue. They give a good introduction to the local cuisine even though not all is local. I had expected more fish but maybe that is exactly what Greenlanders don't expect as fine dining. The only fish...

I was there April 15, 2015, as a matter of fact by chance: We were booked at Nipisa, but when we got there the restaurant was closed! so, we needed an alternative and took to Sarfalik. 7 course menu, just under 600 DKK + wine.
