“Great food - Great service”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

We went here before getting on our Hurtigruten boat. We were offered buffet with pizza and salad or a la carte. The buffet was great, and salad fresh. The chicken salad from the menu was really good. The service was quick and corteous.

“Salty fish soop”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Five of us ordered two bottoles of Chilean white wine, one large pizza, one pasta, catch of the day and fish soup. We asked the restaurant to split a bowl of the soup into five small cups.
The list price of the soup is less than 300 NOK, but the restaurant charged 95 NOK x 5 without any notice. The soup was terribly salty.
One manager and one waitress ran the restaurant in the evening. A few times of phone calls for reservation before visit were not answered at all.

“A fantastic discovery, Du Verden will be our first choice next time we visit Svolvaer.”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Du Verden is located on the ground floor of the Lofoten Suite Hotel on the harbour front. We had a quick walk around the harbour area looking for a restaurant for an evening meal, the first that we found looked very popular but no one was actually eating, just drinking; the second restaurant had rather confused staff who could not even make up there minds if they could fit us in or not, Du Verden was definitely third time lucky.

The restaurant is modern with a relaxed atmosphere, the staff were very welcoming and despite there being only two people operating the front of house in quite a large restaurant with two big groups as well as several other smaller parties the service was fast and efficient. the staff took the time to give each table the personal touch and took great care to meet my food allergy needs to the extent of preparing a meal specifically for me. All of the food is prepared on site so they were very knowledgeable about exactly what was in each dish unlike other restaurants that I have visited.

The food was excellent, and reasonably priced for Norway, with a wide variety of choices, the bar also had a wide selection of drinks to chose from, I recommend trying one of the fruit ciders.

We will definitely eat here again next time we are in Svolvaer.

“Could do much better”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Visited this restaurant with my wife, and we found the location pleasant. We had sushi (Nigiri) as starter, it tasted good except for the squid wich was rather tough. The main coruse was cod from lofoten, and this was very good. The wine we ordered was gone bad (cork), even though the waiter didn't smell any wrong. To his credit we got a new bottle, but it was so hot that we had to put it on ice. It didn't get a pleasant temperature until the dinner was finished. All in all - the food was ok, but the wine handling was not good.
