Great breakfast buffet and the reindeer filet for dinner we can highly recommend. Locals seem to like the place to eat out.

I have eaten in a few Michelin star restaurants where the food has taken my breath away along with the setting and staff. This not being a Michelin restaurant, has done just that and more. It has rounded off our whole Alta experience in a fantastic way. The wine was amazing and the food had incredible flavour combinations. We are... More

Okay listen up. This is not the place you want to eat if you are a big family getting together. We were calling some weeks before this night asking if it was possible to have the whole family (10 people) sitting together. It was really no problem until we came. And we had to sit on 2 different places! If... More

We arrived as a group of around 40 people and had a buffet. The selection of different salads and appetizers + main courses was sufficient and varied - not forgetting the home made (?) breads. Whenever something was about to finish the staff quickly brought a new bowl. The restaurant itself was pretty small but because of the size also... More

The food was very nice and there was an option to make dishes vegetarian which I really enjoyed. The food itself was very nice and the portions were good. It was expensive but not as expensive as other restaurants in the country/town. The service was very slow even though at least 2 waitresses were working and only 3 or 4... More

Poor, disinterested, incredibly slow service. The table next to us arrived at 8 and were still waiting for anything to eat an hour and a half later.

It's a little hard to find in Alta, but well worth it. I had the fish buffet, and indulged in 4 different fish dishes, fish soup, 4 salads, vegetable dishes and then the dessert selection was fantastic. The strawberry crime fraich ice cream pie alone was worth the journey to the Arctic circle! The restaurant has a different buffet every... More

I went to this restaurant for a family dinner, and we have all been extremely satisfied. We had a dinner buffet with a good selection of food, fresh fish and some typical dishes. The cost of the buffet is 300 kr, quite reasinable for Norway. We fell in love of the place because clients are seated in a room with... More
