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!

“This is a very good hotel but as is most of Norway, hugely expensive”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is well situated with good views across the fjord. The food is excellent, even their tomato soup is gourmet standard. Trouble is for us Brits, the soup costs £ 10 and the chicken dish upwards of £ 25.

Room was comfortable but with 2 single beds in it, a bit tight.

“Wonderful views let down by very overpriced mediocre food”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Even for Norway this was very poor value for money. The king crab main course ordered as a last night of the holiday great was obviously not going to be cheap. But At least I was envisaging a juicy crab leg . What I received was a reused crab leg of about 5 ins long filled with a sort of crab gratin. Certainly heavy on the filler and no discernible flakes of crabmeat set on a pile of tasteless mashed potato. Definitely the worst meal I have had in Norway by far. Save your money and have the tomato soup

“Pleasant dinner in a nice waterfront setting”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We stayed in the town center of Kirkenes and one night we walked down to the waterfront for dinner at Thon Hotel Restaurant. It is an excellent waterfront setting with expansive view on 3 sides. The dinner and service were fine and the prices were typical for Norway, one of the more expensive countries in the world.

“Great Food”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Great food. King Crab delicious - what little I had I really enjoyed. What looks like a bad canteen in daylight is improved with darkness.
