The portions were on the small side, the seasoning was ALL GARLIC, and the prices were steep for the what you got, no value here. I wouldn't go back again

This restaurant is very popular with tourists as well as residents, hence reservations are necessary. The food is excellent, the atmosphere cozy, and the prices appropriate.

We had read very good reviews about Ludvig's before we arrived in Sitka and the locals also recommended it. We were there early in the season but it was still difficult to get in on a Monday night even for a late sitting. The place...More

Ludvig's would be an excellent restaurant anywhere. In the Sitka, population 9,000, it's extraordinary. Open seasonally, the restaurant's 4-6 tables are virtually always full--we typically call three to four weeks in advance for reservations. The space is tiny, and it's not unusual to strike up...More

Hands down must-visit restaurant in Sitka. Food was amazing. We ordered the Black Cod and Linguini, both were very delicious and portions were plentiful. The atmosphere is very classy and makes you feel like you're in a local restaurant in Spain. The waitresses were very...More

We wanted to eat at the restaurant but reservations were difficult so we went upstairs to the tapas and wine bar which turned out to be a better option than the restaurant. We had a couple of tapas with an excellent wine with a excelent...More
