Food was ok, nothing to crazy but it's crazy expensive. The package my husband bought included dinner luckily but my halibut was over cooked and a little on the dry side.

Homey sort of restaurant with OK comfort foods. Mostly a coffee shop experience. Service was a little slow. Food was acceptable. Price was high, but given it was the only place to eat for miles, the prices were probably reasonable.

I would hate to know I had to eat every meal at this place on a vacation, as we were only visiting on a day tour to see the aurora. Noticing the unsanitary practices, and general filth of this resort, I couldn't help wondering about...More

During the winter, this place is 60 miles from the nearest restaurant. Considering how remote, the food is very good and the prices aren't as scary as one would expect. We brought groceries from town just in case. But the restaurant was actually better.
