“Excellent cakes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

We just stopped by for dessert after having had lunch in Henningsvær, and their cakes were absolutely wonderful. In fact, our short stay certainly gave us a taste for more and we'll most certainly stop by next time we're in Lofoten!

“Norwegian and fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

I was travelling alone through Lofoten Islands and spent 4 days inReine. I had the chance to have my dinner at Gammelbua more than once and always liked it a looooooot. As often in Norway the prices are a little bit expensive but according to me the service was fine and food delicious.

“Fantastic food in a small but nice restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

This place is very nice. It offers of course several fish dishes but also some alternatives like entrecôte and lamb. Since we had fish soup earlier today, we had the entrecôte and lamb. The entrecôte was fantastic and well prepared. It came with a red wine butter which was nice, some mushrooms and some potatoes. The service was good and friendly.
