“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Great atmosphere and excellent food. Look out for the Lenin bust behind the bar and the pictures of Marx and Engels, remainders of the Russian past. Simple food at lunch time (when it is a family place) and more elaborate stuff at night

Arctic Char and raindeer. Adequate service with a rustic environment. Good value for money, so therefore definitely worth a visit.

“Surprise in the Far North”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

A surprisingly tasty and wonderful meal in such a "far off place." Good food and warm and appropriate atmosphere.

“Lovely food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

Had a fab evening here in a wonderful wooden lodge setting with great food and perfect service.
Book early as it does get very very busy in the evenings. It's expensive, but not excessively so compared to other options. Highly recommend the pizza (especially since this is the only vegetarian option)!
If such things are important to you, it's worth noting that whale meat is on the menu here.
