Description: The Restaurant is located within the Thon Hotel in Kirkenes which was opened in May 2010. Breakfast: Our breakfast buffet is served every day in our restaurant on the ground floor. The breakfast buffet offer a broad selection of spreads, hot dishes, several types of bread, fresh fruit, cereals, milk, juice and freshly brewed coffee. A la carte: Our restaurant offers an exciting a la carte menu with both local and international dishes made from local and fresh ingredients. The menu varies according to the season, and the chef draws inspiration from Finnmarksvidda (The Finnmark Plateau). During the summer we open up our outdoor terrace where guests can enjoy a good meal and refreshments under the midnight sun, right by the waterfront of the fjord. The bar serves drinks in an enjoyable atmosphere. Welcome!

“Scandanavian gourmet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Sleek modern surroundings and well constructed menu that taps into the best of Northern Norway's bounty. Tables are nicely appointed with a minimalist sensibility. Not surprisingly, we had excellent tenderloin of reindeer with a berry sauce. The salmon was delicious as well. Ask o be seated next to the window of the harbor.

“very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

We had lunch, dinner and breakfast at the hotel and they were all very good. The restaurant is large and attractive with lovely big windows and views over the sound. The lunch menu offered appropriate lunch dishes and we were served promptly and efficiently, and we were happy with our choices. The dinner menu specialises in local offerings, and my reindeer steak was excellent. The waiting staff wear white gloves which was not something we often see, and were very willing to explain the dishes and products and their service was friendly.

“Good, considering the place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

The dining room was absolutely full and we were asked to come back in an hour, and as they had Arctic Char on the menu and nowhere on our trip to Norway had I had a chance to taste that, we decided to come back. Nevertheless the service was a bit slow, but considering the lateness of the hour, I thought the kitchen had produced beautiful plates. Not too sure that Arctic Char is a winner - but I was impressed that everyone was still smiling at 11.00pm.

“Convenient and of good quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

The restaurant is in the hotel and serves a small range of interesting dishes using locally sourced ingredients: king crab served three ways, pasta with braised kid etc. The whole thing is open plan with the foyer and bar so it feels a little "sterile" and the prices are high but typical of Norway. Staff were welcoming and cheery.
