We read the reviews for various restaurants in Alta. When we arrived, we were quite exhausted but found the menu at our hotel a little stuffy (things you could find any where in Norway, pretty much). So, we thought we'd walk to Alfa Omega and see whether it was ok. We found the decor to be charming. Unlike one reviewer who found the U shape to be disconcerting, it wasn't actually a problem for us. The servers tried very hard but seemed a little scattered. The English language version of the menu was hilarious - someone really thought when they were doing the translation. We enjoyed several very good dishes and the local beer was just fine. (Foodspotting has pictures.) What was surprising is that they took the time to put interesting twists on traditional dishes.

I was in a short trip to Nordcapp and we stoped for lunch in Alta where randomly we saw this restaurant.It turned out to be an excellent choice -food amazing and the best salmon I tasted.Don't get misguided by the look of the restaurant-it looks like a 2 star but the food is 4 star.It is easy to get there-jut folow the sign with 'sentrum ',park the car and go for a walk-u will find it near a fountain.Nice waiters,young and always smiling and helpful.oooooooo,don;t miss the rubarb icecream,or the smoked reindeeer dish-great norwiegian food!

Choose the Tapas meny and you will get a nice surprice of excellent dishes served in large portions. Good service from an informal, young waiter. We loved the place and had a very good experience, higly recomended if you visit Alta. Only two minutes walk from the Rica hotel.

When you enter Alfa Omega you have to options; to visit the bar or the restaurant. If you choose the restaurant, which is small, nice and simple, you will come into a good, but a little busy atmosphere.

Some of the experience at Alfa Omega's depends on where you are seated. The room is built in a non- proportional U shape, and if you are placed on a table on the oposite side of the entrance you may feel a little disconnected from the rest of the restaurant.

The menu is based on food and products from the north of Norway, like reindeer for example. The food tastes good, but the quality varies. Still you can find something for each taste, and there is also a children's menu.

To sum up: Alfa Omega is informal, has good food, OK service and is placed in the center of Alta. It is really worth the visit, but it will not be your most extraordinary or mind-blowing restaurant experience.

Decor and surroundings were far from nice. However, the tasteful local food weighed up for most of that. Had a great meal!
