Food here was really top notch. Steak tartare, fish soup, hake, and dessert were all brilliantly made. The wine pairings were good to start with with a nice champagne with the tartare and a white burgundy with the fish soup. The albarino served to the...More

Visited on a Tuesday evening for dinner, this +/- 40 seat restaurant was packed. A small, but well composed and reasonably priced menu, combining local Norwegian products with an interesting selection of wines. We tried the three course set menu with the selected wines to...More

Superb dining in an understated setting. No pretensions which further emphases the strength of the cooking. Run by young, vibrant people whom clearly are very knowledgeable which gives the place a very relaxed atmosphere. The menu was well balanced between starters and mains in choice...More

Great food, services, and ambience! Impressed with the careful matching of the sides with the main, as well as wine -matching. For HK people's standard, it can taste a bit strong, but overall everything is great and enjoyable, worth trying!

Since the last time we visited Lokk they have changed the menu and food concept. Now they offer a broader variety of very nice dishes, small and larger. We had a very nice evening here with good friends and I think they have improved since...More

We loved this restaurant. It's run by young people with imagination and verve. We had no reservation, only a second hand recommendation from a nearby fish restaurant that was just closing for the evening when we arrived at 7:30. They steered us to Lokk, not...More

LOKK is the only restaurant doing ufin dining. It directly translates to "unfine dining". Not a suprise that we're the only ones doing it as we came up with it. It means we've taken what we love from fine dining; the passion and high quality of the food, wine and beer with the knowledge backing it. And we removed what we don't like; strict dress code, arrogant service, and overly expensive food and wine. We would, if pressed to put our food on a shelf, say it's like a viking: it springs from Norway, but we take what we love and want from the rest of the world.

Here you can kick back with a warming soup, have a date wating a four course meal with the matching wine&beer menu, or take the whole office (if it's a small office:) out without bankrupting it.
