Faced with few decent dining options in Finnsnes, we sure were happy to come across this wonderful restaurant across the bridge to Senja which serves locally inspired, made from scratch meals. The cod dinner features a perfectly fried, generous filet, served with classic grated carrots and boiled potatoes. Yum!

This place is great if you wanna try out northern Norway traditional cuisine. The food is tasty and portions are generous. Make sure that you taste the traditional "Boknafesk" or "Grilled tørrfesk" which are just fantastic fish dishes. :-) You find yourself a table, order and pay by the counter like in a cafe. The food is then brought to... More

If your looking for traditional norwegian quisine this is a good place to start. The menu is excellent and even have fish on the children's menu. I tried the grilled "dryfish". Cod fish that's been dried and then soaked in water and grilled. Is was served with bacon and potatoes with a carrot sauce on the side. It was delicious... More

Good, affordable local food. Including good fish, whales and other local specialties. A place for the locals but also recommended for tourists who want to try the local cuisine; at the "gate" of the most beautiful island in Norway.

En route from our Senja house to the Bardufoss Airport, we usually take first time visitors on a tour of the outer reaches of this exceptional island, and we have usually had a meal at Hamn. Not any more, after friends recommended Senjastua at Silsand, vis a vis the town of Finnsnes. A real treat with local specialities like boknafish,... More

Excellent place to taste the real Northern Norwegian kitchen. They serve a range of dishes here that is typical to the region and/or Norway. I have eaten a couple of times here now, and the service and food is excellent every single time. Try the Grilla tørrfesk or the Boknafesk. Both local dishes exactly the way the Norwegians eat it...

Looking for something else than pizza, diner or burgers we found thuis place, about 40 mins out from Bardufoss. Apart from the scenic drive here, the restaurant fullfilled out wish for something different. Great local food, a good choice of drinks and a nice place to sit really made us happy. Definitely a place to remember and come back to.... More

This cozy restaurant serves traditional dishes made from local ingredients mainly, including fish, meat as well as herbs from the near-by gardens. Prices are as expected and the food standard is very high. Huge portions nicely compliment the taste. To be combined with a drive around the island of Senja!

I lived in Finnsnes for five weeks for vac work, and had dinner at Senjastua almost every day during that time. ALL the fish dishes taste amazing, and everything comes in generous portions. The prices are perfectly reasonable (around 200kr) considering the high quality of the food. If you need to eat cheap, have the omelet with bacon for 98kr.... More
