We had a dinner on Christmas Day. Traditional Norwegian menu but we chose to eat the entrecôte. We got the appetizer with the local ingredients. Everything amazing!

The restaurant was closed when we came here but the café/shop was open and they have a lunch menu. Absolutely try the creamy fish soup (made from the cod they catch on their fishing trips)! The spices used in the soup made it a culinary...adventure and everything comes with local bread and butter. The grilled cheese with sweet spiced mustard is also excellent. The shop is located in an old wooden fishing house with antique furniture. The café's seating rooms overlook the bay and mountains and is very cozy and romantic. Lovely place to have lunch.More

The breakfast buffet was generous and fresh. For dinner, The fish soup was delicious. The atmosphere is great inside. The bigs windows to the water views are an attractive feature of the large room. The long wood tables are classic Norwegian. And the decor is...interesting and atmospheric without being cluttered and dusty.More

Before we went to the restaurant we went to the sauna and hot tub. The reception was great, very friendly and helpful ! For diner i also made an reservation. Too bad that we didnt had a window seat eventhough we made the reservation. The...food was ok, nothing special, no culinary high stand, but very expensive if you ask me. Not much to choose from, especialy when you are vegetarian like me. I had a small pasta without meat for 250 NOK. The pasta had a lot of sauce (verry sweet, like they put in loads of sugar, and very salty, had to drink a liter of water after the meal) and very few vegetables. My friend had the catch of the day, it was 320 NOK and the portion was tiny. Next to the fish there were two tiny potatoes on the plate and nothing else. When we left he was still hungry. The views from the restaurant tough, they are amazing! You look over the fjord and onto the sea. Verry beautifull. Also the restaurant itsels looks verry nice. Totally in style, much attention is payed to it. Matje thats why its So expensive? I think you pay for the location. The waiters were fine. Polite, not friendly per se.More

Restaurant Karoline is set in a tiny historic fishing village overlooking a small fjord in the Nusfjord Arctic Resort. Fine dining in the evening with excellent food and views to linger over. Get the Lofoten Sampler for appetizer, fried Cod tongue, local cheese and smoked...salmon. Thoughtful wait staff, creative and delicious meal. The breakfasts were outstanding. large variety of options, fried eggs, salmon 3 ways, cheeses, meats, fruit, pastry, breads and butter, yogurts and cereals, beautifully displayed on a glass topped small fishing boat inside the dining room, it was worth getting up for!More
