This is not the same place as others reviewed. In fact, it was a converted garage next to the science museum. It had the most delicious seafood chowder and sandwiches. Outstanding! It's right on the way to the Park with the Totems--or back.

Tried to get into Ludvigs for 2 days - they were booked. We finally decided to go upstairs over Ludvigs to their other Tapas Bar. The tapas were great and the waitress Carina was WONDERFUL. Definitely a little pricey - but worth it!

This restaurant easily lived up to the hype we heard. It is small so reservations are highly recommended. Worth traveling to Sitka just to eat here.

This place gets a lot of hype. Having only 6-7 tables does require reservations weeks/months in advance. We were seated almost on time,considering size understandable. The facility is quite small with funky decorations and copper topped tables. Staff mostly attentive, but at times not. The...More

The restaurant has a small dining room, but otherwise suffers from excess. The portions are large. Not a bad thing in itself, but it would be better to be alerted to this fact. My wife and I both ordered the paella. The servings were so...More

Cute little place, slightly strange to have a Mediterranean focus + ambiance in Sitka, but absolutely delicious food. The calamari tapas was perfectly tender and beautifully seasoned, and there was no problem when we asked that they leave off the breadcrumbs. The kale/lettuce salad was...More
