“Lovely food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

This is a lovely restaurant if you like fish and certainly a place worth eating in if you get the chance. I had the fish soup which was tasty and then the 'catch of the day' which was cod in a lovely sauce served with fresh veg. Helped down by a nice glass of wine.

There is a lovely fire to keep you warm and the place is very cosy and popular. If there is glorious sunshine then you can eat outside underneath the extraordinary mountains.

Or just go there for a beer, chill out, relax and share magical moments with friends and family.

If you are in Reine then meal here is well worth it.

“Loved it!”

Had dinner here twice. Both times loved it. Informal, cozy. The food was fresh, well cooked. Wine was ok. Very friendly staff.

“Good atmosphere but food is not great.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

From the other comments I expected good cooking, and we only had only regular food (the fish of the day was fried, it is a pity). We ordered the Chablis on the wine list and it wasnt good either.
Nevertheless, the place is really warm and cosy, and the service is pleasant, we enjoyed our time in the restaurant, but not thanks to the wine and food :-)

“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.
