“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

We only had a beer at Bacalao, so we can't say anything about their food. The beer was good, though, and the menu looked interesting. It has whale, of course. The location is unbeatable, smack in the middle of the harbour.

“Nice fish soup and prawn sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is a large, busy, pub-like restaurant in Svolvaer, overlooking the harbour, just off the main square. We had our first Lofoten Islands meal here - a light lunch of tasty fish soup and an open prawn sandwich (lots of prawns!). Not a bad place and the food was tasty. Would eat here again and try the bacalao next time (we tried it somewhere else and it was divine).

“Meh...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

2 adults and 2 children. We waited about 45 minutes for our food and the restaurant was only half full. The food itself was average and the portions were a little small

“God food, good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Had two meals at this warm and friendly restaurant/cafe. Tried the Bacaloa which was very good and also a chicken salad which was very plentiful. Even though meals are expensive in Norway the servings are big so you only need a main course. The prices here were pretty reasonable compared to other places in town and the location along the waterfront is great. Staff behind the bar were very friendly and helpful regarding local dishes. Would certainly recommend eating here

“Perfectly fine seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We ate the whalebeef which was perfectly fine but not spectacular. The staff was effective but not fond of communicating. All in all an okay place to dine.
